That must have been very embarrassing being beaten by a full size truck.

Road test shows them at 7.0 sec 0-60. It would have beaten my SSEi too before I modded it but I'm confident I could take it now.

I have been spanked before myself, racing my Firebird in the 1/8 by hotrod trucks.
.....got to get stickier tires. My 60 foot times are terrible.

I'm not sure its that bad to lose to a modded truck, the F150 Harley SC'd trucks and the SVT lightnings are smokin fast, the RT Rams, and those new Hemis fly...

GM need a performance truck now, I have no qualms about losing to a superior car....or truck...

Ya. The last time I raced my Bird, I tied with an SVT Lightning truck and posted identical times. It was fast but there are faster modded ones out there so watch out.

GM just came out with one. The Silvarado SS. It isn't as fast as the lightning, but it isn't slow either. It has a 6.0 liter 345hp (5200), 380lb-ft (4000)V8 in it. 0-60 in 6.3, 1/4 mile in 14.8 @ 90. Because it is 4WD it gets really good traction off the line which is why 0-60 is so quick. It weighs 5,240lbs.

Yes the Dodge HEMIs do have tags, just infront of the doors. With a big "HEMI" written on them

I would love a Dodge Ram, a nice 3500 with a HEMI, that would be a tank.
