Not a good night for me. I ran my 05 Dodge Ram Daytona vs a 03 Dodge Ram.
I lost both runs. I have a knn filter and superchips. He has just flowmaster exhaust and filter. I ran 93 ocatane about 1/8 tank. I staged up at 1100 rpm's I beat him, the second time off the line, but top end he edge me out. We used the 3 horn honk to start the race. Not the best method but it works. So the 1/4 mile time was 15.57 on the programer, I think I beat him in the 1/4 but we agreed on a further up point and he edge me out the last few feet. I was ahead by my front fenders then he blew by me like I was sitting still. I also raced a ford 5.4 with big tires. He beat me off the line but at 60mph I left him behind.

Im very novice when it comes to racing, but I really thought I should have done better against the other ram. I have a 4x4 slt quad cab, he was a 4x2 slt. Does the flowmaster exhaust give him better top end? Ya I know it breathes better, but damn I put too much hype on the superchips. Lesson learned. Well atleast I beat the ford, I think Im gonna home and sob and suck my thumb and do my home work. Can you say MOD TIME. Gotta pay to get my bragging rights back. Well I would love to here everyones thoughts on this story. Yes you can even laugh if need be, but damn it sucks losing. I had loser lunch twice last night.

Please reply with thoughts, mods, laughs, etc...

2wd.... 4wd... big difference in weight. I assume he's also a QC?

Also... it seems the 03s were a stronger motor as well. Well, at least the early 03s were...

The depends on what you consider a stronger motor...ya mine feels a little peppier up high then my dads 05 hemi, but then again his doesnt sound like a grandfather clock because of crappy valve lifters.

Does the 2005 Hemi Magnum engines use MDS, I know for sure that the 2003 motors do not use the cylinder deactivation system.

Weight difference of almost 400lbs. It's not just a weight difference however the 4wd system will cause more drivetrain loss as well.

yes he has 20's and so do I. Yeah exhaust is at the top of my list of things to do. I like flowmaster but Aero turbine 3030 doesnt sound half bad either.

I've run my 03 QC vs an 05 QC Daytona and won before. I thought the 03 was supposed to be worse (smaller injectors and such) but I won when I tried it.

I think the 03 and 05's have the same injectors, but I know for sure the fuel pump in the 03's doesnt pump as much pressure as the 05.

03's are naturally faster :D
im telling you. it is almost proven. just not scientificly.
i believe that since the daytona has the superchip running performance tune, it just about evens the race out... most say superchips is proven .3-.4 tenths. they also say every 100lbs is a .1 so if you are 400lbs heavier but are running the chip, theoretically, it is the same race. 03's are just faster :D :D :D ask MATT! And the Jimmy guy withe the 03 quad cab 4x4 with an intake and muffler running like 15.0 flat

Well, I have a long journey ahead in order to get my SH&% talkin privies back. I've been catching all kinds of hell at work, but that's half the fun. Redemption shall be mine. One guy with a dodge diesel ask me if I wanted to race him so I could feel better. HA HA! Well gotta work that OT to pay for my new addiction, I will try and make a video of the redemption race. I need sometime to make some cash flow. Thanks to everyone who wrote in. I am motivated now!

You should have raced him in 4x4 off the line. Then you would have a huge advantage. Then at about 60 mph push it out of 4x4. He will never catch you. And 15.5 is the best you can do. My Cummins would smoke you
