This week’s Truckin Fast Wednesday video has a pair of 3rd generation Dodge Ram pickups going head to head on the quarter mile – with one being powered by a Cummins Turbo Diesel engine and the other packing the Viper V10 as a Heavy Duty Ram battles an SRT Ram. The video starts off with the Cummins Ram avoiding the burnout box while the SRT10 Ram does an absolutely wicked burnout.
When the green lights drop, the SRT10 Ram and Cummins Ram get off to a very even start, but it only takes a couple hundred feet for the Viper power to push the smaller Ram 1500 out to a lead that would only grow as the two trucks roared down the track.
As you might have expected, the SRT10 Ram beats the Cummins Ram with a 13.61 at 103 miles per hour for the Viper powered pickup with the workhorse in the far lane ran a respectable 15.51 at 86 miles per hour. The Viper truck sounds awesome in action so crank up your speakers and enjoy!
