First street race of the year put the guy in the red lighting in his place. I was going down telegraph road and the black lighting was messing with me but didnt get the opportunity to get one off. I pulled into McDonalds, grabbed something to eat, sitting in the parking lot and here comes the red lighting, he pulls right up to the side of my truck, ask who owned the truck, i said I did. Then he said do you want some? I said sure! I asked him where? He said right out in front of McDonald's on telegraph road. We pulled out there, lined up, took off. I blew the tires off all the way through 1st. He put about a truck in a half on me, I hit 2nd, pulled right up next to him, hit 3rd, and just walked away!! It was all said and done, I was a good 4 truck links ahead of him. So as far as Im considered to all the srt-10 owners, once you get the tires to quick spinning, and learn how to launch it, a Ford lighting is NO competition!




This is to the guy in the red lighting...how did you like those tail lights??? HAHA!

It's going to take more than a lightening with pulleys, chip, and exhaust to beat a bone stock SRT-10.

John,

I'm calling B.S on this one! I live in Livonia and have a Silver 01 L. We can meet up anytime!. I'll have a video camera also. I'll post win or lose!

Nastwendy ran the SRT that made the speed record. SRT driver cut a better light getting the win, the lightning clocked a faster ET. That was with an experienced driver in the SRT against a stock Lightning also. It was that close....

Another L ran a SRT on the street and beat it by less than a car. These trucks are so close you are dreaming or the L driver let up at a point that you think you killed it.

You're saying you caught a Lightning that had a truck and a half lead and then blew it's doors off by four more??? Your going to stick to this story? I'm calling this total B.S now....Or it was one ratty L that would have been towed if a Dearborn cop pulled it over as a safety hazzard! Where did this race happen on graph? I have been racing on that road since 1983.

By the way! The silver looks sweet on the SRT. Silver is the fastest color.....

I know this race didn't happen today. The roads were wet from it raining all day. I was on telegraph eariler. Let's see if the other L tell's his side of the story. If it happened like you say. I don't doubt a Lightning's will lose to a SRT. Like that and by that number of cars....I have a Brooklyn Bridge for sale too!

You name the time and place. I'll be there with the camera....Balls in your court....

It was like 2:00 am friday night right infront of the 50's mcdonalds, as far as the lightening go's I do not know nothing about it but i dont understand that if it was wore out why would he wipe right up in the parking lot, pull right next to us and say "lets go"...if it doesnt run good. If you want we could set up a race in Belleville on northline...which is a good spot. What do you have done to your truck? Mines bone stock with 300 miles on it and I have a friend that has a 2000 lightening with pulleys on it..the best time he has ever done at Milan Drayway was 14.0's..and the funny part about it is that i have a another friend with a Mustang and his best time was 14.30's and those two have races about 6 times on the street and the mustang wins every single time!!!! Go figure..

Careful you haven't broken in your engine yet.

14's with pullies? No way. Never heard that before. a 4# lower will put just about every single L in the 12's. Unless you guys are in really high elevation, both those guys need to check their trucks out. High elevation will cause the L to run a half second or more slower than at sea level.

John,
FYI from the 150 site.

The SRT guys are at it again....Just went over there and a guy is claiming a L challenged him to a race and the L got him off the Light by a truck and a half, he caught it in second, passed it and put four cars on it by the end of the race here in Michigan. I just challenged it and called it B.S.

We're not a high elev. not sure what it is though. Milan, I hear, is slippery. Never got to run it (rain) when I was over there.
I'm not sure 14s with mods but, there are some that suck look at the one w/kenne bell and stuff lost 2 of 3. only got the 3rd suposedly, cause the timing chain on the SRT Ram broke. (can't confirm it though)
I've said it before, thiers going to be a lot of Ls getting thier a$$ handed to them this summer cause they don't take the competition serious. and vise versa. Thats why this summers going to be so much FUN :D

Trust me when I say there are issues that have to be fixed with a KB Lightning that cant beat a stock Ram SRT-10 by many many lengths.

You are right.. this summer is going to be fun! Win or lose its about time there is competition in the same catigory!

I should have stopped by there after the Autorama. Didn't think there would be any cars out yet even with the temps warming up. I pulled all the mods to have warranty work done before it expired. I do have Nitto Drag radials and a cut factory airbox with the stock paper filter. I know Bellevile...My truck runs 13.5's stock all day in the summer. 13.4's stock in cool weather like we have.

12's with the mods. I'm picking up new Nitto's this week before I head out to California for work next week. If the Weather breaks before I go, I'll hold on putting the engine mods back on. Can't do anything about the drag radials. I don't have a second set of wheels with stock F1's.

If we don't meet up before I go, I too go to the 50's McDonalds. We'll meet up and have some fun...

9seconds, Glad you visit the f150 boards. Your taste is improving...lol.

Sounds feasable. Why?

Look at trap speeds. 98-101 on average for an L, 105-109 on average for the SRT10. It's just pulling WAY harder on the topend. The only reason they should lose through the 1/4 is subpar shifting or launching, which is likely the culprit. And NastyWendy raced no pro, he was just some guy Dodge hired to take the truck around to dragstrips, he's probably not yet even had much seat time in it considering her kill was, what? 1 week after the top speed run? This was probably his first time running it down the track!

An R/T owner will be taking his to the track very shortly and we'll have some REAL 1/4 times and many will be surprised.........

GOOD KILL JOHN!

Funny huh? Considering many 13.4-13.7 (yes some do run low 14's), and with a pulley, the damn things WILL do 12.8's-12.9's. Hell all mine has is a 2# upper pulley (worth all of about 8 hp w/o a chip) and magnaflow mufflers, and I ran a 13.1 a couple of weeks ago at Baytown. Most people do a 4# lower pulley and run 12's immediately. My 4# is sitting in my room waiting to go on. I'll be mid 12's after that with the chip. Supercharged motors gain massive hp with pullies, unlike n/a vehicles.

First time at the track my truck did a 13.5 @ 103. 2.21 60ft. The driver that drove that SRT truck against Nastywendy cut a light that is indicative to that of an experienced 1/4 driver. Sorry if you want to say the driver was average. Don't think so. We've seen the results of average drivers and new SRT owners trying to learn.

Again, 9seconds was able to get 13.5 at 104 I think it was with a 2.2X 60ft. First it was give the drivers time. Now that a stock L runs as good as a SRT on it's worst run of the night the L is still a nothing truck??....That's funny!

Out of all the races the SRT's have had against lightnings that didn't mess up on shifting or the Light have been closer than 4 cars. If that were the case the SRT should have stomped Nastywendy and the same for all the other L's that raced the SRT. "Period."

The races that are close are the ones tha can drive....The RAM is a nice truck and I welcome the competition. Lets at least be real about it.....Where are these 13.1X times like the mag was getting. That was B.S. It may have done it. Not without doing some major prep on the SRT. Ringer!!
