I think he'll take you off the line but if you race past 70 or so I think you'll start pulling up or ahead.

The 5.9 was an option on the SLT. It's torquey, but a dog as far as speed. Although it will be quicker than an R/T since it's not awd. Should be a good race, not sure who to put my money on.

Well, the 5.9 stock has only 245 HP and 335 Torque not 350 HP. But even with Curb Weight: 4568 lbs. The specs of 0-60Mph on her is 9.3 sec (specs taken from Edmunds) seem pretty good. He may have edge on you.

im not sure about this race..... seems kinda fun tho.... definitely get a camcorder.

ure lighter but older, hes powerful but heavy.... ive never seen those things move quickly so i think you will win. It all depends for how long u race, 1/4 mile u should be ok.

BTW what year is the durango??? i saw 1 2004 a while back attempting a burn out and it sounded like it was gonna explode LOL.... all it got was a little chirp HEHE.... so its definitely a slow starter thats for sure.

Good luck

Because of the full time transfer case on the 04+ models, they can't do burn outs, the owner of that was just an idiot. 04+ Models with HEMI's are nothing to play with either, their pretty quick for their size. (The new Hybrid for 08 should make it even quicker)

Because of the different programming on the R/T models, even with AWD the R/T is quicker.
