why would you want a fast TRUCK?

Discussion in '1966 Dodge D/Dart Super Stock' started by skyrage, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. You want a fast car. you look for something that looks fast and slick while being eye catching. This car has nothing special except the 500bhp engine and doesnt look fast. Would you honestly buy this to go drag race other supras and vettes? NO, because its a TRUCK and trucks werent designed to race! Doge is quite the idiot for comming up with this one. Seeing this on a 13 turn track racing a vette would be the laugh of a life time!<!-- Signature -->

    Try not to be stupid. Fast trucks kick ass. I think that your worried that a pick up might be able to hang with your Ferrari on the streets. Considering that this has the Viper engine in it we know that you could add the Venom 800tt kit to her. Then youd have a truck that is faster than your ferrari for half the cost
     
  3. Re: why would you want a fast TRUCK?

    seriously it's a V10, 500hp, who wouldn't want one is the question, besides it's would be scary as #uck to see a truck keeping up with a Camaro!!
     
  4. Re: why would you want a fast TRUCK?

    this thing will destroy vettes and camaros not keep up with them

  11. Re: why would you want a fast TRUCK?

    Why must people hate on cars here? I think most people on here are like me. I like all cars. I like domestic, imports, be they cars or trucks. I can tell you this much about a fast truck. You could get some very nice women with that thing. And they wouldn't be the gold-digging hoes you would pick up with a Ferrari or the dumb high school girls you would with an import or a fast Mustang.
     
  12. Re: why would you want a fast TRUCK?

    trucks already do keep up with z 28's and ss's
     
  13. Re: why would you want a fast TRUCK?

    People just want to go fast, weather it be in a car, or a truck.
    Also, people in their mustangs or whatever mistaking this for just another truck, will be suprised after they get wasted trying to race this.

    Actually no, you see the fact that this thing could not race for peanuts is the entire point. There is a big difference between straight-line acceleration and true performance. This vehicle may be able to go pretty fast, but it's braking capacity would be pathetic and it's cornering would be embarrassing, why do you think all the true performance cars are so light and low to the ground? Because trying to do decent cornering in a 2 ton truck is nothing short of stupid and misguided.<!-- Signature -->
     
  16. Re: why would you want a fast TRUCK?

    Hey, this truck did the slalom at about 70mph, so obviously it's got decent handling and everything, plus, bowdown2diablo, I thought we agreed to disagree and let the arguement sit. You don't like it, others do, no need to keep going into the forum and continually try to come up with facts on why this truck would suck.<!-- Signature -->
     
  17. Re: why would you want a fast TRUCK?

    there's a very good reason to have a fast truck. its one word. its called:
    insureance.
    now, this may not apply to this vehicle, but i drive a pick-up, and yeah, it may not be the fastest thing on the planet, but it doesn't look bad, it corners well (u'd be surprised at what you can accomplish with beefer swaybars, a lowering kit, poly-uratane bushings, low profile tires, and a few engine tune-ups) and its reliable. trucks are cheap. and if i want to go down to home depot and buy some lumber, i don't look like a moron trying to shove it in the trunk of my corvette, camaro, rustang, what ever tiny @$$ car is cool this week. another thing, have you ever tried to work under the hood of a car? it sucks. its extremely cramped. everythings always in your way. with a truck, its cavernous under the hood, and it sits high enough off the ground you can get under it and wrench on things no sweat. going back to insurance, i have a friend, he drives a V6 camaro, RS i think, and his insurance is 3x mine. i'll roast him any night of the week. i no a girl who has a Mustang GT. same deal. another friend of mine has a Cavalier, and his insurance is 2x as much as mine (do you think we'd even be close in a race? a 5.8 1/2 ton p/u vs. a 2.0 stock cavi? ha!).
    so the bottom line, trucks are todays muscle cars. they're cheaper and easyer to hop up, drive fast, and have fun. good bye road runner (we'll miss you dearly) hello supercharged 20,000 $ dodge ram, that will toast a camaro, and scare a 'vette 1/2 to death.

  18. Re: why would you want a fast TRUCK?

    With 0-60 in 5 secs and weighing 5000 lbs, I don't think it was supposed to be fast. But I bet you guys this thing could haul ass. I want one.

  20. Re: why would you want a fast TRUCK?

    I'm the idiot? Where did you get that I said anything about the 0-100 time os the slalom time? Maybe you should reread my commment, I never said it was slow dumbass.
     
  21. Re: why would you want a fast TRUCK?

    What really pisses me off is that everyone says.. " Oh this thing can't corner for shit!!! handle sucks!!!! blah blah blah....." who gives a flyin crap! Seriously, in America when you race someone it isnt around the track unless you be in NASCAR or some league like that. You race on the street, at the light , or at the strip. We are talking about 1/4 mile here. This truck is NOT a race car. Its a muscle car. There is a freakin differance. This truck was not meant to be raced at Laguna Seca or anything like that. It was meant to kick every stuborn asswipe out there that needs to be taught a lesson. Esp those damn imports. Honda's are fine, when they arent played around with. Economic yes. Sports car no. Who would want a fast truck?? Hell.. ill take it. From reports this thing will cost almost half a viper would... And dont say oh this thing is gonna cost a fortune. This truck was made to compete with the Ford Lighting. They wont exceed price that much if they want to challenge it. And those who will say "oh oh the new lighting (if there is gonna be one, I have no clue) will be better and quicker." The only way ford knows how to get power is to slap a supecharger on all their damn cars. Seriously, they need to come out with a V8 with some power. And no i do not consider a Cobra a powerful car. Its just a lame excuse of wut could have been a better car with more power and torque. Back to the truck though...... One hell of a move for Dodge. Good choice. We jsut need for them to bring out that 99 Charger R/T concept. Now that WOULD be fun
     
  22. Re: why would you want a fast TRUCK?

    The truck can corner and stop faster than most cars on the road including a stock Camaro Z28. This truck has better handling than a Camaro Z28 as well.



    Americans don't care about top speed. Leave that to the rest of the world. We want a vehicle that implants your body so deep into the seat you have to tap the brake to sit up.
     
  23. Re: why would you want a fast TRUCK?

    hmmmm. camaros yes. vettes no
     
  24. Re: why would you want a fast TRUCK?

    yeah, but can you take your light supercar off road, i think not, as far as im concerned, takin a truck off road can be even more fun than racing it at a track. not to mention you will never get to take a car on a track to race it, so its basically go fast in a strait line, or go fast in a strait line and go off road, think about it
     
  25. Re: why would you want a fast TRUCK?

    0-60 in 5 IS FAST. everybody on this site is so desensitised by facts. anythin under 5 is fast, and for a 1/2 ton truck, thats quite impressive
