stock the HD F150 does low 14's. i dont see this truck having a problem hitting mid-high 13's. The automatic really helps it out when racing
GVWR = Gross Vehicle Weight Rating, which means the truck, WITH a load on it. Base Curb Weight is what the truck weighs with NO load.shinnister said:Do you look at the GVWR or the Base curb Weight for how much the truck weighs?
200-500lbs. shouldn't be that big of a deal IMO. Maybe the Auto trans will be waaay easier to launch, which means better 60's. Drag Racers say that every tenth you cut off your 60' turns into 2/10's at the big end!In either case, is 200-500 pounds max really going to decrease the performance of the truck from the single cab to the quad cab?? Can we expect high 13's low 14's in the 1/4 from the 05 Quad cab? Just curious..
For now, I still have the stock 4.11's in my truck, and 3rd gear winds tight at ~100-105ish. I have yet to race mine, but I think those who have raced are using 4th gear?? Obviously, 4.56's will make the 4th gear change a no-brainer.Hersbird said:Doesn't the regular cab SRT-10 also get the 4.56 this year? Anyway, at least most of the extra 500 pounds will be over the rear tires not the front, but the automatic will not be quicker (maybe much more consistant though), not even in 60 foot times. maybe if it had all the gears of the manual, but it only uses 3 gears in a 1/4 mile run. I bet the manual uses at least one more on it's way to the lights.
That setup in the even lighter Dakota (about 4400 pounds) though maybe pretty dang quick... If it just wasn't so funny looking!
