    Could I take a Ram SRT-10?

    On my way to work today I'm just going along and I notice this guy kind of following close and moving over like he's going to pass so I step on it through 3rd..I guess this caught his interest. At the next light i'm in the right lane, he's in the left 1 car back and I casually accelerate then step on it a little through 1st to give him room to get out in front. The guy does a ricer flyby on me.. I see dodge on the truck, and realize it's an SRT-10. He just kept weaving traffic (which I dont do..) and wouldn't line up.so I didn't get to race him. How fast are these usually and would I be able to take it with these mods? I don't know if he thought I wasn't worth his time or what...

    I think you'd be able to take him. They weigh a ton (well actually quite a bit more than a ton.... heh) and have huge 22" wheels. Sure, they have 500hp (over-rated, IMO) but they run like mid 13's.

    its a mid-high 13sec car, so I think it would be a pretty good run, but from a dig I would give the edge to you.

    Yep Yep.. And there aren't too many people out there buying an SRT-10 and not modding them..

    It's not an SRT-10 if it has a Hemi just a badass Dodge Ram. The SRT-10(Cylinders) has a Viper motor in.

    when you show a 1/4 mile run you show the whole thing... he was losing to that old blue pickup in that run. i dont doubt that a TT SRT-10 makes 800 hp and runs 10s but yeah, just an observation.
