Yep, 154.5, roughly 7mph more than the L which is a LOT at those speeds and especially for a truck.

Now we just need some true times to see if it takes the quickest title too (and maybe even take the overall title for this too from the Syclone - all it needs to do is break the 12 second barrier).

I think the 1/4 mile is a toss up between the Lightning and the Syclone, depending on which magazine statistic you read. I was thinking the Ram would put an end to it, but as of yet all three look to be in the same ballpark for 1/4 mile ET's.

Now if you're talking zero to sixty times, the Sy will be real hard to beat at 4.6 - stock. ;)

I wouldn't want to run my Sy at much over 130mph though, for any real distance. :eek:

Thumbs-Up to the Big Dodge for new Top Speed King! :cool:

I think that statement is pure ignorance.

Can you elaborate a little on why it is ignorant to put down a dodge truck?
specifically why it is ignorant?

Kudo's to you dodge boys! PVO now has the fastest production truck title. Now you need to unify it with the street belt and track belt to get overall #1.

This one was easy with 500hp and a 6 speed trany The other two will be the real test. At least you can now say you have the fastest production truck for $45K.

See you on the track and on streets.....

You answered your own question, glad you have a dictionary for references. If you don't own or haven't driven a SRT-10 Ram, how can your comments be valid.

you mean my comment about the dodge boys making excuses for the srt video?

I don't follow what you are saying...

what comment are you SPECIFICALLY talking about?

you said this
"Who cares what a L owner thinks..just pure ignorance to put down the SRT Ram's.."

and I don't see where I put down the srt-truck....

this tyrade is going to go until either truck no longer exists - when the new L comes out, if its anything like what its supposed to be, i would say some dodge guys are gonna say something along the lines of "they [ford] have to have a supercharger to beat our dodge trucks" and L owners are gonna say something along the lines of 'well ours is a ford' at that point. right now i would have to say that the L is the better bang for the buck buy, but for awesome power and appeal - i would say that the srt-10 would be tops. when it comes to modding, the L reacts to mods very well, and they are cheap in retrospect. but when you really get into it - to get huge power gains you pretty much have to have a built motor. its going to be interesting to see what kind of power and times a boosted SRT10 will put out - and how it holds up - my understanding is that the 8.3 responds well to boost and has very stong bottom end components - and it will be interesting to see how the rear end and tranny handle the increased power. but only time will tell.

SVT is officially dead. The program is cancelled and who knows if it will resurface in 2006 or not. They may make another Lightning or they may just let it go. They may also just change the name of SVT (maybe use the Shelby name again.)

Just wait until summer and some SRT-10 have been in the owners hands for a few months. Then you will see pure stock times in the 12's which will put any comparision to stock Syclones and L's to rest. I really doubt there will be any competition on a SCCA solo course or a longer road course, even a Dakota R/T will beat a L on the average SCCA course. I've never seen a Syclone on a road course but my bet is a 10+ year old suspension will have problems even with AWD. Maybe on a dirt track!

...picks up the crack pipe... I would find it hard to believe the SVT program is cancelled. It doesn't make sense now that they have some competition from PVO. 2006 they will be back, and stronger then ever. It will keep PVO from relaxing, and force them to keep up to date with new models and better performance cars/trucks. :cool:

Grats Dodge on the record. I wonder if they really tried, I bet they could get more out of it then that. :)

Your kidding right? You realize that now is the time with the weather being cool that the numbers will be better then in the summer heat....If they don't get into the 12's stock now, I don't see it happening in the summer. Not on stock tires and wheels. What traction? Ambient heat and humidity reduces the engines ability to make optimum hp.

SVT is not dead by the way. They did make 04 Heritage Lightnings already.
There will be a one year of non production. Doesn't mean that SVT program is gone.

By the way! The truck that ran the 13.1 was a ringer. Very obviouse at the way others are complaining about traction and the truck not being easy to launch off the line. Just do us sport truck enthusiast's a favor. Don't sit on them and make them garage queens. Get them out run them so we can have some fun too....

Kudo's on the new record.......You won't have it for long.

Now meet with those Lightning boys at the track and get some stock VS. stock going. Let's see who's got the smack to back it up....

Maybe you should read those definitions of ignorance because you are uninformed. SVT is taking a one year hiatus because the Mustang is all new, the F-150 is all new, and the Focus will be replaced with another all new car. SVT is what started these factory hot rods, and showed that these things could be built profitably. If it wasn't for SVT, there would be no PVO. With every platform they build on being changed at one time, it makes sense to take the time and do it right. No SVT vehicle has ever come out the same time as the car/truck was introduced. They're usually 1-2yrs. in the making. Congrats to Dodge on the top speed honors. I guess 7mph for 12 grand is good?

PVO=performance vehicle operations, SRT= street and racing technology.
