All right, just back from the track. My best time was a 15.572 @ 89.05 mph. Now, that doesn't seem impressive, but I don't have a lot of motor work done. All I have is intake, headers, true dual exhaust with 40 series flowmasters, A b & m trick shift kit in the tranny with a b & m ratchet shifter and that's it. The fucked up thing is that there were about 5 - 6 Dak R/T's out there, and they had the monster tachs on the dash with the ram air hoods, and some motor work. They wouldn't crack the hoods on them for anybody. But they ALL were running in between 13.5's and 15.5's. They were fuckin R/T's, come on now!?! I thought the R/T was supposed to be the billy bad ass of dak's, but my little 5.2 was damn near runnin em. I know, usually it's the driver, but they could actually drive, so I don't know?
Hey, don't under estimate the 5.2, mine has been known to tear some shit up too.There is not that big of a difference between the 5.2 and the 5.9.I'll bet most of those r/t's your talking about don't even have a shift kit or anything. I think thats the best mod on my dak, I love the way it shifts & I get a lot of compliments on it. !headbang
YOU SAID THAT THEY WOULDNT POP THE HOODS SO FOR ALL YOU KNOW THEY COULD JUST HAVE GOTTEN RT STICKERS AND THINK THAT GETS THEM SOME THING
IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE THEY HAVE 5.2'S WITH 5.9 STICKERS OR DEAD STOCK 5.9'S
No, I think that they were real r/t's. But ya know the old saying, "It's not the car, it's the driver." They were being real stingy about everything. Like after they all ran, they would go and park by themselves, they would always line up together. Just stingy shit like that. I don't know, screw em, I am gonna bag it soon anyways and they wont let ya run with bags at the track so.
My best stop light event was in richmond va.... hittin switches at the stop light when a durango pulled up next to me... the dude driving started to rev his engine and stared at me... I sat there and laughed at first... then i noticed his wife in the passenger seat and hit to little sons in the back seat and a baby in the a car seat.... then i got pissed.. and I just gave him the ugliest face I could think of in complete denial that this *** was gonna race a car with his whole family in it... what a role model... and then the light turned green and he peeeeeeeeeeeeeled out and I just sat there and was like what tha fuck just happened....LOL thats my story K bye
well i ran my truck with the g-tech this week and came up with a 15 flat. THats alright out of a stock 4.7 dakota with the tire removed. Well In delaware(newcastle) i was heading down 141 to 40 that goes into 1 that takes you to the beach and along came a in-teg-gra and ack or integra for others. It was lowred kitted and iced out all the way. Bummer it was slow. I let him get a head of me a little from the start just to he could hear the exhaust as i pased him. The car was quick but not enought at the last light we got to he asked me what i had done smiled and said stock. He just cuzed his ass off apprental he had a hk22 2.2 motor swap in his car that has 220 hp and wasnt doing anything for him. BUt it could of been the driver
