Wow that's pathetic. My crew ran 15 flat bone stock.

^my thoughts exactly. Those big heavy wheels/tires don't help much. Drop at least half a second there alone.

I'm also not too impressed. Luis's 4.7L ram with less mods ran a 14.99...

Seems that the ecoboost is faster than the 6.2L(or whatever engine it has)?

The Raptors run mid to high 14s all day long...this vid is a fluke. I'm sure you could find some hemi Rams just as slow. I don't like Fords but let's be truthful, these thngs are faster than this, lol!

My QC 4x4 runs low 15s stock. One thing we have to remember, that truck is in no way designed to be a drag truck. The weight between the tires and suspension alone would be enough to cause any of us grief with similar setups. 15 sec 1/4 or 15"/18" of wheel travel for driving 100MPH over the countryside? It does wery well at whet it's designed for, so who cares if it sucks at the 1/4 mile :4-dontknow:

They ran it all day and could only get a 15.1, not so much a fluke!
Sry, I'm sure this happened but it's one in a million (figure of speach). Either it's a bad driver or the people involved in the vid aren't too swift...the fluke is in there somwhere. I don't like Ford but I'm trying to be fair...same goes for hemi ram vids. I don't know if I did this right but here's what they run on average. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mj4W6pGA1YY&feature=youtube_gdata_player

You're right, but it is a race shop that also has a 9 second 2011 5.0 mustang. I wish Stainless Works would make truck headers, there products are amazing!!!!
