I have made a few bets with my friends and are wondering if i can take them in a 1/4 mile drag.

My vehicle- 2004 ford ranger edge 3.0L, 5 speed stick. Reg. cab, short box. with synthetic oil, E3 spark plugs

Friends vehicles- 2009 vw city golf, 2.0L stick. with magnaflow muffler (3'')
2005 ford F250 lariat diesel, crew cab 4x4, 6.4L powerstroke turbodiesel v8 (stock)

lemme know!! i am pretty sure i can both of them!! thanks!!

If I recall a 2006 PSD is around 325-350 HP and around 560 torque

They could stay in probably 3rd gear and beat a ranger

You know what a 3L Ranger could beat? An AMC Pacer, those things were slower than molasses!

i disagree with u all i think his truck will deffly beat the vw... im not too sure about the f250 but it is substancially heavier than the ranger but it does have plenty more power... i raced a 2009 dodge charger srt10 in my 2.3L and gave it a run for its money... not once was he more than maybe a couple feet ahead of me... and everytime i shifted i would pull up ahead of him... he coulda just been terrible at his stick shift in his $40,000+ car tho

Our 06 Beetle with the 2.5 is pretty fast.

The closer of the races would be the VW and Ranger. I still think the VW would take the ranger.
