Great video, John!

The driver only hits 4th though. The turbos make it sound a little 'fast/furious', but it sure does get to that vanishing point quick. :D

BTW- Some of us are on Mac's. You might want to let your web guy know that.

I dont believe the 650R is the turbo upgrade. I believe that is the venom 800 is the turbo upgrade. I believe the 650R is headers, exhaust ecm work and some other stuff I believe. Srt10x4 (or is it 5 now!!!) correct me if im wrong.

The black truck in the video has our 522 CID motor upgrade. No turbos on that motor.

No test numbers from Craig's silver twin turbo yet.

Nice, what kind of short times are you seeing with the truck?

Kevan, were you able to watch the video on your mac? If so, how?
Negative. I had to go into "knuckle dragger mode" and hop over to the PC.

Maybe it's the compression on the encoding of the video. Sounds like a turbo winding up. Still, impressive numbers and a cool vid.

I'm bummed no one got my "vanishing point" reference.

John thank you for posting the great video of your 650R truck. I am in the SoCAl area and do not recognize the drag strip. Also I do not see any timing equipment. My buddy and I are curious? Which strip this run was made at and what brand/type of timing equipment was used to certify the run. We love your posts and video's.
Thanks, Jack

A well known car magazine tested the truck at California Speedway. They test in the parking lot next to the dragstrip. They gather the acceleration data from a Stalker radar gun with STATS software.

$20,000 to run 12's? Seems a little much to me.
Yea, but your investment is quickly returned, when you see the dismay of other SRT/10 (RAM and VIPER) as you steadily pull away from them and handidly spank their asses :).

And when you step up to the Big Boy twin turbo's. Knowing there isn't much out there that you can't hang with or beat hands down, is a very nice feeling as well.

Of course you can do all the above in a Honda Civic with $4K in mods but then you'd be driving a ricer :)
