Video: Wicked 4-Wheel Drive Dodge Ram Runs 9’s!

The popularity of the diesel industry continues to grow by leaps and bounds, and at the same time, enthusiasts and shops have steadily pushed their coal rollers to greater extremes. A majority of the time, the truck side of things is geared more towards towing, pulling, or offroad use, but that never stops a racer from seeing how quick they can make their pickup truck run in a straight line. At the Street Car Takeover event in Phoenix, a diesel aficionado found a way to punch his truck deep into the 9-second zone, with even quicker times on the horizon.

etThe big black Dodge in the video from BigKleib34 is a 2005 quad cab model that is far from stock, according to the owner, and the roll cage from 1320 Industries would be the first clue. Under the hood is a fully-built motor with a compound turbo setup that has a 72 mm turbo lighting a bigger 91 mm turbo. Twin injection pumps and a set of big injectors help feed all the fuel into the motor and keep it running strong. At 90 psi, the truck makes an estimated 1,500 horsepower and over 2,400 ft/lbs of torque to all four wheels.

The first pass, it’s clear the driver was sandbagging a bit with the 9.94 elapsed time at just 107 mph on the brakes, but you can see it put bus lengths on the truck in the other lane with ease. On the final pass, the wick is turned all the way up and the big Dodge rips off a 9.40-second elapsed time at 145 mph, laying down a 1.46 to the 60-foot mark and 6.04 at 117 to the 1/8mile. Those are some serious numbers for such a large vehicle, for sure!
