BamaHemi said:Tough Call! I've had 2 RC Dakota R/T's. A 00 and a 01. A good running RC R/T will go low 15's. 15.0-15.2 is common. They CAN go high 14's but thats pretty rare. My RC SB Hemi Ran 14.8 w/ 700 miles on it and just a Gibson ST on it. Its faster than both my R/T's were stock. However, w/ yours being a 4x4 it'll be close.
The R/T is lighter by a thousand lbs over you and has just as much RW Torque. They also have 3.92 gears and only 28" tires. From 0-60 or stoplight to stoplight if the R/T doesn't smoke the Tires then he'll take you. Your hope would be in the 1/4 mile.

So, even though it is 75/35 less in power but close to 2K lbs lighter... you don't think a RC Dakota R/T would take him?BamaHemi said:Let set a few things straight.
The RC Dakota R/T weighed about 3850lbs. The CC went about 4250lbs. They had 250 h.p. and 345 ft lbs. They came w/ 3.92 and the Anti Spin.
A RC 5.2L could not take a RC R/T, even w/ a 5 speed. The 4.7L 5 speed could get close but the R/T usually revailed.
Stock for stock... none of these trucks could outrun my Hemi.
