Default So who would win the drag race?

I'm on my second V6 Ranger. I've always thought both were pretty quick for what they were. I was wondering if my new Truck would beat a V8 F150 with the same equipment. It's gotta be considerably lighter.

give us some stats to work with, the rangers are quick, but the f150 is no slug in comparison at least.

you have to compare apples to apples, not apples to peaches. Besides, you have a truck, why would you want to "drag race" it in the first place...

mines got 3.73's out back and it's just fine for driving, crusing on the highway, hauling wood, ect. but in terms of being "fast".... the things a dog. and not a grayhound, more like a 14 year old lab mutt, haha.

Because, Mr. Pooleo, some dude in a 150 might look askanse at me at a stoplight and thereby pimp me to the point I would have to lighten his personage by one pink slip....
