I wouldn't say that, Lightnings are running anywhere from 13.1 to 13.4 stock and the SRT hasn't posted any great numbers yet...even with all the extra power.

I read it as the Lightning will be blowing doors off too. Which is it Beast?

The Lightnings doors will also be blown away by the srt-10. I just noticed what I wrote.

This site says a Lightning runs 14.6 1/4 mile stock. This is a Based Ford Club site. After seeing the site 13.1-13.4 1/4 Sec seems kind of hard to believe.

I raced a slightly modded Lightning at the track 2 weeks ago ..
He ran a 13.6 @ 99
the hemi ran 14.6 @ 92 ...

The SRT-10 would have surely beat him :)

Hey dude, I'm a Lightning fan. I think its a sharp looking truck. I'd even own one. I'm just a Mopar guy. And I think your brethren in the L world will support me in spite of the friendly Ford/Dodge rivalry that only in the wildest crack dreams does a Lightning run 13.1-13.4 stock. Maybe a stray freak here and there, and every builder has them. But not consistently as an average.

I think we've had this out on another thread though.

My '99 ran 13.70 @ 99.8 with a 1.9 60'. 700 miles on the clock at Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ. Factory stock right down to the air filter and the temps were in the mid-60's that day. Only got 3 runs in that day - 2 were 13.7's and my very first run with the truck was a 13.8.

IMO, as long as there is a reasonably good launch pad at the strip, the L's are basically easy to run the number. I consider myself average at drag racing as I only get to the strip a couple times a year. (Working so much sucks, but it gets me my toys! :D )

Truck Trend says 13.7 Seconds 1/4 mile Since the people who are testing the truck are pros I'm going to say 14 sec 1/4 mile for the average person.That's my opinion though.
So in that case their 13.19 @ 107.07 with the SRT would be better than the average person? So lets just say 13.3 or 13.4 for the average person? Truck Trend Link

Those numbers sound reasonable.

BTW, have you ever run your Cobra at the track in stock trim? If so, what did it run?

Yep, once when it was bone stock. Managed a 13.6/7 -ish at about 102. I'm sure I could've done better with practice, but like your sweet, new SRT-10, it takes some time to perfect it!

Later on I replaced the stock exhaust on the R with an off-road x-pipe and a Flowmaster cat-back, along with a K&N, and hit the 13.teens at over 106. The stock exhaust on 95 R's is the same as the GT's and 5.0 Cobras, which gets very restrictive when bolted up to the 351. (BTW, the car is #58 of 250 built, so I still have the stock exhaust and air filter, in perfect condition)

Now the car has 970 miles on it. ;) :D

Haha mid 14's stock my @ss. Those are the freaks. My first time in my 01 L with bald f1's and first time ever on the track I ran a 13.72. The average is 13.4 - 13.8 from what I've seen. The freaks on the other side of the scale are 13.1 - 13.3. Not many do that. Only one 13.1 bone stock I believe. Have been quite a few to do 13.2 - 13.3 right off the floor.

Ran a 13.25 with stock air box at the time on Nitto Streets. It was my third time to take the truck down the track.
