Ford Vs. Dodge

Ok I have a race lined up for tomorrow night for $1000.00 agains a 2006 Dodge cc 2wd dually. His truck is an automatic with the following mods. Built tranny, aftermarked injectors, phat shaft turbo, 5" exhaust, and all the other usual goodies. I'm relying on my 4x4 launch to bring me ahead from the dig, but i've never seen him run either and its only for a 1/4 mile. What do you guys think will happen?? Need all input.

what kinda times do you run in the 1/4?
what type of programmer does the dodge have?

looks like yall have similar mods and i "think" that a 6.0 "should" win with similar mods in a drag...especially 4x4...reason being...

one of my buddies has an 06 4x4 SRW cummins with smarty only. i have mods in sig. without propane running down the road and we both hammer it, we are pretty much dead even...when i kick on my propane i slowly pull him...

however at the track i run 8.8-8.9 in the 1/8 mile without propane and he runs like 9.3s and with propane i run 8.3-8.4.....so i guess the reason im faster at the strip is fords come off the line so much harder...?

SO...good luck and i hope you win that G and braggin rights! are yall racing at the strip on backroad?

Lastly, if it was like an 03-04 dodge with just those mods i think you would really beat em, but them 06s are perdy quick! AND make sure a neutral party holds the money and watch your back when you leave if its not a friend or somethin cuz some people can get pretty crazy when it comes to a lot of money...

Haha i'll probably put that towards some wheels, I know these new CR dodges can be pretty quick I used to have an 06. Its really easy to go back to Ford once you try something else, these other trucks just don't compare.

Technically, the 2wd dually is actually a "4wd". Just because I run a Dodge, GO CUMMINS!!! If yours is an auto, Id think it would be pretty close. If the back road is a dirt road, your should smoke him down in a 4x4 tho. Cant wait to see how it ends.

Mines a dually also, so i'll call it a 6x6 launch! lol I'm not crazy enough to race on a dirt road, but I will have a video to post if my buddy will tape it. I don't like how confident he is about beating me, I hope he's not spraying and didn't tell me about it.

well, if he is then you can inspect his truck and if you find it, the win is voided...racing for that kinda money i would saw all mods should be known!

i actually saw a "pimped out" dually one time that had ALL kinds of billit stickers and crap all over the truck and he had some custom mudflaps and stickers for the truck made up with 6X4 on em...

.....that would be scary 2 duallys on a back road side by side! but at least yall wont be side by side for long...since you will be a lil in front! DEF get a vid!
