Tundra vs Hemi

Are the Tundras really faster than our Hemis stock vs stock? They're so damn ugly and so damn bulky I don't see how. I still paid about half what most people pay for their Tundras so that's ok. What about the Titans?

yep, tundras really are faster stock for stock. with that being said, our trucks come with available 3.92's, tundras come with available 4.30's. are trucks come with sad little exhaust manifolds, tundras have available shorty-headers from the factory. stock 2wd hemi w/3.92's and 17's would probably lose to a stock 2wd tundra with tow-package (4.30 rear-gear, traction control, and factory headers) Just my 2 cents. titans are slow

Damn! On youtube and streetfire so many people talk crap about every other make and all have their own opinions on what's faster. I would guess the Hemi faster but I guess not. Is that the only other truck that's faster stock? not counting lightnings or srt-10s? How much does single car or quad cab and short and long bed matter? Seems that a 4 door would weigh a lot more but does it affect the 1/4 mile times much?

weight is a huge impalement for our trucks. for 14-15 second trucks a gen rule of thumb is every 100 lbs is a tenth off your et. I.E. if you could get a 15 sec truck that weighs 5300 lbs to lose some weight, say 500 lbs, that same truck (weather conditions being the same) should run mid 14's. its all about power to weight ratios. now adding power like headers, exhaust, heads, cam, etc and reducing weight can be even more beneficial to the occasional drag-racer. I've gotten the weight of my truck down to around 4900lbs (race-weight with me in it) and added a bunch of N/A power. these combinations have gotten me from a stock 1/4 time of 15.4ish to now consistant 13.80's. anything is possible with persistence. back to your post, lightenings and srt-10's aren't being made anymore to my knowledge so that throws them out anyways. i think QC's weigh around 300-400 lbs more than reg cabs in 2wd trim, so 3-4 tenths diff in a rcsb to a qcsb, all things being equal, (gears, tire height, weather etc.

I'm planning on going to the track again next week without the spare, tailgate, tool box and a lot less gas and see what it will run then.

Starchief-I have a reg.cab shortbed w/3.92's and factory lsd.I have not had a chance to weigh it yet.With a True-Flow A/I,a catback exhaust(w/magnaflow muff)and a(airram) powerwire,I ran a best of 14.74 with a 2.11 60 foot.I removed my front swaybar and the sparetire,added a set of spring clamps(to the front),ran 28-30psi in the rear tires/38psi for the fronts and dropped my tailgate down(for weight distribution)and had about a 1/8-3/8 tank of gas.also,I created a no-wheel hop situation.It is a little biased as I think it will only work on a truck with a flip-kit.With a flip-kit,you have less space between the axle and frame-I cut down my factory axle stops(axle bumpers?),which gave the axle zero room to move(no hop).The last part is an idea I had wanted to try.

My truck weighed in at 5320 with a passenger, tool box, spare tire and almost a full tank of gas. It's 100% stock. It ran 15.42 with a 60 of 2.29. I didn't get any hop or spin at all with stock tires.

I went to the 1/8 mile track the other day. I raced a Tundra rc/sb 2wd with 4.30 and headers. It ran a 9.22 and I ran a 9.63. I will be improving when I go again this week, because the air is drier and cooler, plus I will have my e-fan on and a track intake. My time was with the few mods in my sig.

Nice! I think my best was 9.92 in the 1/8. Where is Burleson?
