I live in Shawano, WI. I was coming home from work (in Green Bay). I was just getting to the top of the off ramp and came to a yield sign. look for cars and see one way off in the distance. I pull out an suddleny this truck get right on my ass. I was pissed already :rolleyes: He switches lanes and starts to pass me. I look over with a death stare and right when our front bumpers are even, I gun it. so does he. We just hit a section of road that is kinda curvy too. I go balls out while he has to slow down caz his weak truck can't handle fast corners I guess. When we hit the straight road, we are at about 65-70 MPH (in a 45). I could hear is chariot trying to go fast, while I turned up the music. I look now and he is about 2 car lengths behind me and moving farther back. Unfortunately, the busier part of the city was coming up, along with a stop and go light. I slowed down and let him go by. I was happy, he wasn't (shouldn't buy a slow truck :D ). He gets ahead of me and pulls to the middle of the road only inches from my bumper. He moves over once he heard my exhaust get louder. I get up alongside him give him half the peace sign :). Then I stop for the red light and he turned away.

Great kill i did the same thing last week to Ram 4x4 V-8 truck at a stop light. Ram`s are slow. I was a full car length ahead of him by 20mph and by 60mph about 10 car lengths. I think he gave up by 40mph, he knew he didnt have chance.

Guys, I hate to bust your bubble but that "HAD" to be a V6 or at best a 318 V8. I have a 95 RAM 1500 Sport with the short bed and the 5.9 (360). It will blow away any trep I've seen. You are right though the full size bed trucks corner crappy thats why I got the shorty. The Sport version also has a little wider rims and that helps.

Good kill anyway!!

my company owns a 97 ram 3/4 ton 360 and having driven both vehicles i'd feel confident that in a race my intrepid would blow away the pickup, though the truck would DEFINATELY beat the trep off the line.

My father has a 2000 Ram 5.9 and had a 97 Ram 5.9. both are dogs. My R/T ran away no problems. I race Dakota R/T club cab he was fast off the line but by 60mph i was even and after that i had him by 3 car lengths by 90mph. Rams that are really Mod out or supercharged are fast. But stock high 16 1/4 mile times. No threat to me i run 15.131 with my R/T.
