Nice! Just be careful it could go the opposite way next time. Don't give him the chance to even the score.

Thats pretty sweet. There are a lot of factors that can contribute to that, if both trucks are roughly the same height it will make it more fair, but a stock dodge is taller than a stock chevy so that will give you some advantage there if you both hook up at the hitch. Also your motor puts out torque at a much lower RPM and builds power better under load IMO than the D-max. Throw a box and some injectors in your truck for next time and don't tell him. He'll be pissed when you drag him backwards down the 1/4mile.

Just make sure you don't break traction. Then you will be going for a ride in the wrong direction.

I hate to talk bad about Cummins, but I have a 24v Cummins, edge comp, exhaust, intake, freshly readjusted valves, sythetic oil in everything, built trany, 5 star ATS Torque converter, shift kit, limited slip, and probably other things I'm forgetting but you get the point. My truck does the quarter in 15.5 seconds.

It means nothing when one truck drags one in the other direction, besides traction. Sorry........ My truck has been dragged backwords by a STOCK 305 chevy, stock, stock, really stock 305. I've seen a truck pull where a Suburu WRX dragged two 4x4 trucks backwords. You can't tell me a good running stock 305 would ever out power a Cummins; even with multiple cylinders missing. It's not power, it's traction, that's all.
