:want:One has a Dodge Magnum V8 HEMI and the other has a Dodge SRT-10 the V10 truck.

All three cars (including mine) are completely stock and NO mods at all. I'm not too woried about the Magnum although they are pretty fast but the SRT-10 I'm not sure about. :hmm:

Have you ever killed a SRT-10? What do you think the outcome would be in my case? I think the V has a better quarter time!

That would be cool if my first kill was a SRT-10...but I'm just not sure if the V is faster. Do you know?

SRT-10 has 500 hp i think...I would assume it will rock you.

Yes it has 500 HP (Viper engine) but it's 5200 lbs....i think the 0-60 are like 5.2 but again....I'm not sure!

You should take out the Magnum.....but the Viperam is going to be a challenge...but, then again the hurst linkage stinks so don't be suprised or pull the bs flag if he said that he missed 3rd.
Also, the viperam has a hard time hooking up traction to the ground.
The V is about a second faster than the SRT-10 in the 1/4 mile.
You should take out the Viperam unless of course you mess up.

Yes, it has a lot of weight to lug around. Plus they don't have any traction. They're on 22" wheels which seems to hurt their launch. I don't know how the magazines are getting low-13s out of them, I've never seen one run anywhere near that at the track (on stock rims and tires). They trap in the 106-107MPH range (12-secs with traction) so if they hook up they could run right next to the V.

I ran one at the track this past fall. He was running high-14s all day. When he finally got next to me he was pretty frustrated with his truck. He gave up just after the launch - slammed on the brakes and coasted to the end of the track.

High end against the ram will be a breeze.... Its real heavy. The Magnum V8s dont have a lot of power right now (until the srt-8 comes out).

Tell them that you'll race them on curvy roads. Both Chrysler products will look like boats then.

The V should beat either vehicle though in a straight line.

Stop talking and start racing!!! There is only one way to find out if you will win or not, and typing on this darn computer isn't going to answer your question. I personally don't think you will have any problem with either of them as long as you hit all the gears. Yeah, the truck is fast, but, news flash, IT'S A TRUCK!!!!!!! Go for it man.
