I REALLY hope this is true

Unless the slicks are enabling the use of MUCH more than 500 hp stock it would take an insanely large shot of spray to make a 5150 pound truck go 10.8.

I have to call complete BS on this one. I live in Jacksonville, FL, 40 minutes from Gainseville. I'm in a huge truck club with multiple members who drag race their trucks. I hang out with even more "street racers" who go to G-ville everynight they are open to run. I would of either a:) heard about the truck or b:) seen it in person, as I go to G-ville all the time as well. That post was made 12/06/03, the night before that was slippier then owl cum, no way a truck would of ran that quick, and I would of heard about it. The week before, I was there, no such truck, before that, no one in my grapevine had seen the truck, and I dont believe the trucks were available yet. Not saying its impossible for an SRT10 on the bottle to run that quick, but that story is BS.

Well, Slicks would allow you to launch at a good rpm and still hook up. You'd probably be able to knock off 1/2 a second of your ET, maybe more.

I call BS................a 150 shot............if it gave the SRT10 a true 150 HP is still only cranking out 650 FLYWHEEL hp............not enough HP/TQ to get a 5K+ truck in to the 10's. I know of several L's running that much power and more and still stuck in the 11's with many other traction, transmission and other mods.

The SRT10 is gonna be a badazz truck to have around to compete with.........I just cant say that this story has any teeth.

Be interested to see a twin-turbo setup will do. I wonder if KRC or Hughes be interesting in making a set.

Though, changing out the restrictive air intake and longtube headers/exhaust will bring in around 50-70HP more.
