Where the hell are you getting that number?? Im not a Hardcore Chevy freak either-just a realist!!!! No offense to anyone that has one, but for being what they are(a somewhat light, v-8 powered vehicle) thy are turds!!! A new siveradowill dust one with the 5.3, I am just wondering who told you they would run 14's. Not in this century-not stock anyways!!!

A buddy of mine has a 99. He ONLY has a Mopar cold air induction, and a muffler slid in place of the stock one and he is running 14.8's. I cant get time slips if you want them. And this was done at Milan dragway. Im not trying to argue with you, cause for that big of an engine he should easily be low 14's stock, just tryin to get things straight.

i talked to a guy a while back that had a 01r/t with a super charger, headers, catback, and a bigger throttle body and he was only runnin 14.1s u put all that on a 4.3 s10 and ur talk high 13s that with a posi and just think if the s10 had a 390 a$$ gear like the r/t that would put a camaro ss to sleep like a baby that drank 1/4 bottle of liquor:evilg:

This is a ricer comment right here. Saying, "if i had this stuff done to my truck..."

Wanna know what. I was 20 seconds away from trading in my Xtreme for a Dakota R/T. When the dealer took it out, I told him to race me from a light... we did. I KNOW I was flooring it, I got perfect traction, I got the lead out of the hole, but at about 45 that thing pulled. We went to about 90 and he was way up front. The reason I didnt buy the truck was because when I took it out for a 10 mile test drive, when I came back, it showed id get 8.7 miles per gallon! Hell with that crap!

Now, I know my truck is fast, its a low 15 truck. Thats how my truck was layed out when I raced the 00 R/T. The truck was way faster. Anything that has 65 more HP, and 100 more TQ is gonna eat you alive, since it weights 380 pounds more.

Now, going back to your story, you have an extended cab, and that was a regular cab, you are damn close to the same weight. The one I raced was a regular cab like my truck. I have no reason to lie either, I'm just pointing out the fact that those trucks are faster. Think what you want.

If you think that truck is slow, then our trucks are even slower. There is no way in hell that R/T will be slower than a stock Xtreme, or any S10. Id like to see you take this topic over to the Dakota R/T board. They would tear you into shreads. LOL.

This topic was at the R/T forum. They didn't tear any one into sheads. It seems like they were trying hard to defend there trucks against the S-trucks too. There was even a big deal on the other S forum on the same subject. Mostly it was each group bashing the other:(

I have driven a new R/T and was very un-impressed with it, especially with all the hype about it and the trash talk from the owners. Its too slow in my opinion.

I've raced one with my Silverado and beat it, several times. Me and the R/T guy (co-worker) had a little feud going on. He was a sh!t talker like most R/T guys. And he actually lost to another guys 80's era fullsize worktruck(with a built 350) that was tired of hearing his "my R/T smokes all trucks" comments.

I have yet to race one with the Blazer, but I'm sure I can give it a good run for its money.

BTW-its not always the most powerful vehicle that wins, its the more powerful driver. Especially when street racing.

Well said. Im saying that arent impressive, but they are faster than S10's. And, your 350 Silverado should beat R/T's if its a GM one.

Im just saying this thread is a bunch of BS. They arent impressive, but they are sweet.

I just cant wait for the 2003 Dakota R/T. Its going to be a 333CI engine (i believe 5.3 or 5.4ish engine). 333HP, and 333TQ. I thinks is cool as hell they got the HP and TQ to match exactly to what the CI is on the motor. That will be one ASS KICKIN' TRUCK!

What are you talking about?:confused: In Fast98SS350's defense, that isn't just a ridiculous shot-in-the-dark estimate like you obviously think. He probably said that cause "most" of us here know guys or have heard of guys that have matched bolt ons with R/T's in s10's and smoke 'em :uhoh: . Ignoring the driver, even if it has more HP and TQ that doesn't make it faster. That sounds like a ricer's guesstimate based on so-called "facts" that mean nothing in the real world. I think they are slower, but that's me! :p

Just like how a 2000 Mustang GT is faster than my basically stock s-10 right,wrong. LOL! :evilg:
