    as if he stood a chance, LOL!! Left him in the dust. I will say though, for a truck that thing didn't do too bad. After I got home I looked at its details and to my surprise it has the same engine as the Dodge Viper SRT-10, an 8.3liter V10 510bhp and can do 0-60 in 4.9 and quarter mile in 13.6.

    Not bad for a truck!! It's basically the same as the viper but in a truck shell. Never knew that truck existed until today. Looks like they only made about 10,000 of these between 2004-2006 and then stopped production. Very cool truck I think. Still nowhere's near a P85 though :p

    I'd be curious to know how much gas was burned during that gas pedal stomp

    Huh, that may very well explain the large truck that a few weeks ago took offense when I passed by him on the right-hand side on the freeway and he managed to stay pretty close when he gave chase as I accelerated away. Was definitely one of those "how the heck is he still staying so close behind me?!?" moments.

    Can't wait to do it in the X. But I guess I will be . . . waiting. :rolleyes:

    That would explain the Ram truck that chased me out of a stop light a few days ago. When I hit 90 kph he was only a few car lengths behind me. Pretty impressive for a truck.

    The SRT-10 weighs 5,130 lb. That's 20% more than a Model S.

    Closer to 10% I believe... (the S is ~4600lbs right?)

    Actually, I think the S is closer to 4800 lbs if you have the pano roof. Not that much difference.

    That makes sense now. I had one of those following me too. I took off then slowed. The older guy passed and gave a huge thumbs up out of the passenger window:)

    I dare not ask what is in that bucket. But it looks nothing like gasoline! Eeeeeew.

    Any truck that can do 0-60 in 4.9 has my respect on a performance basis, even if it's not something I would ever choose to buy or drive.

    Diesel trucks with chip, intake and turbo upgrades can easily hit the mid 4's to 60 mph. There is tremendous capacity there. At a relatively cheap price too. Unfortunately, it comes at a very unacceptable price of fuel economy and fumes.
