I did on a sprint from 65-100+ (not metric)

Off the line? No way. He would have spanked me, but I bet I'd be pulling on him at the 1/2 mile mark.

With 400 tq they really cant off the line (all you get is tire spin) I had it off the line, but the 2/3 shift is so bad in those Ford trucks and Autobahn took over, 5900 shift points with power trans on.

Its much easier to catch up and blast past those trucks if you get it just right.

plus, its a truck. They have horrible aerodynamics and they weigh a ton. If you want something fast get a car. Trucks are for hauling stuff.

I was commenting on Rogues redline. But yes with the rockers he has more power, over more of a range.

Lightnings and F150'* have Mp112'*. Stock for stock they'll beat and SSEI, or any Aurora, hands down.

It'* not a Ford, but I definately thought that those Dodge 'Hemi" trucks would be faster than what they actually are. that thing didn't stand a chance.

for all the hype, I dont think they make that much power either IMO. The displacement is huge on the suckers, if it wasnt for that they would be worthless. Dodge just likes to say "HEMI!" in their commercials i think. Dodge trucks can come with a turboed diesel if you really need power. And even if the hemi isnt the greatest, their trucks look pretty badass IMO.

I gotta clear something up here......My Zilla doesn't even compare to the cars I've been compared to here.

It'* an old dog with bolt-on mods. If you read my sig, very little actually adds to performance. Most of my mods are purely cosmetic or 'enhanced' tune-up items. Basically speaking, I have a chip, exhaust, intake, pulley, and ram-air. Everything else just makes it run smoother, stop faster, and look good.

And yes, a cam or rockers would be nice

I'll be helping my boss replace his SC coupler in his 95 Riviera soon. I'm considering tearing my top end down at the same time for either rockers or a cam. We'll race. I bet I can do rockers faster than he can do the coupler. Cam might be a tie

I agree Bill! You have the nads to take it to the limit and that is half the battle right there.
