Not sure if this is the right section or not, but it's talking about a race, if not mods please remove.

My friends are having a race tomorrow night, on a small strip of highway with no cars at all (we live in a very rural area, please don't lecture me on the ethics of streetracing). Anyways, I'm lost as to what the outcome is going to be. There will be 2 races, 1 from a dig and 1 rolling about 30 mph. The two cars are a 1998 dodge ram sst, with the 5.9 V8, around 250 hp and 325 torque, and a 2000 honda civic EX 2 door coupe 5 speed. Now, this seems like a no brainer. I come from a car family, work on cars, and am in the process of building a jeep up. However, I just drove the civic ex today, and it's quick (fast, no. I'm not a ricer, I know fast, and this is quick at best). I rode in the ram yesterday, and it had torque for days, but I couldn't really get a good read on the speedometer. The civic is light, and revs to high hell; the dodge is heavier, but severly destroys the civc in engine. My question: what do you think the outcome of both races will be?

Also, the stats on the civic are:

2000 Honda Civic EX Coupe 8.4 16.7

a.k.a., not fast. If anybody has specs on the dodge, it would be greatly appreciated.

No, the ram is an automatic (4 speed I'm assuming), and the civic ex is a standard (5 speed). My guess is that the civic will have it off the line, then the dodge will catch up and take over.

About a quarter mile, maybe a little more.

i think that the porshe Gt would win but not by much. and the civic is a 4 banger.... so i dunno. tough to pick one or the other but start the civic then ram at the end, then Gt would jsut stomp them .

slicks? any mods? fat drivers? are they white? any weight issues? any reason this is on a caraudio forum?

no slicks on either, not fat drivers or weight issues, they are white, and this is under the performance section, I didn't know where else to ask it and this is the only forum I frequent, it can be moved if necessary.

dont be surprised if the dodge takes it off the line, assumin it connects...

Ive seen plenty of full sizes take cars off the lines, thats what the torque is for :D

Now get up into the higher RPMs is where the civic will take the race

No mods to either, but even though the sst has huge *** tires, the torque is too much and spins like nothing. It's going to be intiresting...

Just because my Tahoe is so PIMP and still hauls *** even from a dig, I'm gonna say the Ram:cool:

If its a stock EX (127hp) vs that Magnum V8...

I don't care if it's a truck vs a car...

Ram > Civic

Up to 1998, the stock 5.7L L31 in a full size chevrolet was rated at 220HP and 350lb-ft tourqe, Ford was not much better with similar sized motors.:)

The dodge will win sure enough... I havnt seen the full-size 360's in action but in the R/T dakotas, that 5.9 will haul ***. My friend has a civic and it's turbo-charged and built up and everything but before he modded it, it was fairly quick (but like it was said, it wasnt fast).... Keep us posted!

My guess is that the dodge will take it off the line with the torque, but the civic might start to reel him in. I raced a civic 4 cyl 5 speed with headers and full exhaust/intake, i smoked his *** off the line till about 70 then he started to catch up to me. I still won :naughty::up2somet:

Well based off he dodge dakota r/t running a 16 second 1/4 with a 5.9 liter V8 engine that sports 250 horses and 345 lbs/ft. of torque, I dont see that Dodge SST running any faster than that. This should be a pretty even race....

i raced someone tonight in my dakota and it was an 01' Si with a few mods (or at least an exhaust). beat em' off the line, and up to 95-100ish. At that point he took me but i've got a 97' dakota with gibson headers, custom y-pipe and full 3" down to a flowmaster 40 series, and a custom CAI. dunno how i beat the civic but it was fun. by mid may i plan to add a PCM, lower it 2" and put 19"s on it, maybe add a supercharger so it'll be fun:D.

one of my buddies has a dakota r/t i wanna say its a 2000, he's either stock or maybe an air filter but when we were at the track it pulled 14.9

maybe its a factory freak and there was a tailwind and great air temp that day, i dunno, but thats what it ran

no it's more like meka quoted the time of the 5.2L v8 in a slt. a 00' R/t with a k&n filter that my bud owned before he got his C6, ran a 14.8 with just upgraded spark plug wires and the k&n air filter. so i don't know where he got the 16.4.

Meh nvm that was for the slt.:imdama:

told you;). the sst and slt are pretty much the same and my truck ran a 16.28 stock. not taking her to the track until i put in the next 3 engine mods so i can get the hp over 300 and torque over 350-370.

Those numbers were for 1988-1995, then they switched to Vortec Fuel injection on the 5.7 getting a whopping 265 hp.

Was speaking about the Vortec, sorry. But we are both wrong, numbers were 255@4600 and 330@2800.

I wanna say the Ram will pull from a stop untill the civic hits around 4th gear, then aerodynamics will kick in and the civic will start to pull. From a roll the civic should win.

No, they didn't end up racing. Kid in the SST isn't a fan of racing :( Anyways, civic from a roll? Only ricers race from a roll, I mean from a dig, you know, a real race :rotflol: but yeah, they didn't end up racing. I'm pretty dissapointed.
