Default Hemi truck

Did I just beat a Hemi truck? Or did he let me?

We were about the same until 70mph then I pulled away very slow.[:I]

There was a group of Hemi Ram guys at the track a couple months back and they were all running mid 15 second 1/4 mile times. Stage 1 PTs are running 14.8 to 15, so I don't think killing one is out of line. I don't know what they were trapping, but I don't think they were running us down. Bottom line: Hemi Rams are quick. We're quicker.

Hemi trucks will have a good start due to their huge amount of torque. However, because of their long stroke the top end will suffer. In addition, they get the aero penalty just like PT's.

However, SRT-10's and Nissan Titan trucks are a bit nastier.

Don't forget the HUGE weight difference. This really slows trucks down.

When I said 4 star it was not a real rating from a mag or anything. Just my opinion.


But I would give my PT a 3 1/2....
