    Something we can both agree on.

    As a former SRT10 Ram owner I noticed this thread. Between the Raptor vs the Lightning would beat the Raptor in a pavement drag race. The lightning is also easier and cheaper to build (cold air intake, pully on supercharger, exhaust and tuned) wakes these trucks up. The Raptor is heavier and doesn't have the aerodynamics of the Lightning.


    Between the SRT10 Ram vs Lightning stock for stock I from personal experience have beat 3 lightnings every time I lined up next to them on a Drag Strip. With the SRT10 it's a drivers race since it's a 6 speed manual and getting the launch right. The first week of owning my SRT10 I ran it at the Strip and posted a 13.5 at 105 mph 2.22 60' so yes a SRT10 is faster not only in top end.

    I do love the GMC Sy/TY's also since I'm a big fan of the GNX/Grand National/T Type.

    The Lightning in the OP is a concept of the 3rd generation that was never built.
    As a Lightningaholic since 03 I have to say the raptor is awesome but with all the extra weight I bet stock for stock the Lightning may slip by in the 1/4.

    Rare is a stock Lightning so they can run 13 sec. down into the 9s and possibly 8s with crazy mods.
    Mine is road course modded and gets around pretty well considering there is nothing that helps it, front/rear weight, overall weight, aero of a red brick, stock brakes die in a couple laps.

    But like Tacomas we love to mod them.
    One of our local Lightning members has a Raptor too!

    This has got to be a joke. The 0-60 on the Raptor is like 8 second and runs a 16 second quarter mile. It's not even close. It's a 3 ton truck.

    Tundras are massive. 12.9 is moving for something that large.
    I have a very mild tune on my Lightning to keep it safe on pump gas and run 12.8s

    Been a while since I ran at the drag strip, mostly road course anymore.

    Don't think a raptor does 0-60 in 5.2 . That's fast .

    me and my old man have a lightning. the thing drives like a dream. its a 2004 sonic blue L thats putting down a solid 440rwhp...the thing screams when ya step on it. At the same time can/could be driven every day.

    Id take the lightning all day over the raptor (and i do like the raptors very much) but come on, lightnings are sick, not much else out there like it. il try to post some pics up when i can...im at work now

    I feel like it should be blatantly obvious that a supercharged 5.4 in a 2wd Reg Cab truck is going to at least be somewhat quicker than a N/A 6.2 in a 4wd Ext. Cab or 4 Door with heavier suspension components, wheels, and tires. Along with all the extra interior things inside the cab. The inside of a lightning is somewhat barebones. I test drove a lightning once. I couldn't imagine a raptor moving like that on the blacktop.

    My best friends dad has the same raptor. 6.2 (Ordered it) and hennesey tuned. Its badass for a truck with 35s. I honestly feel safer taking a turn in that truck than I do their camaro. We took his truck to their land where they have a fourwheeler track, and it was a lot of fun. Until the rad hose kinked up and overheated. We gave that truck hell but nothing like the video of it being tested in the desert. Great truck, but waste of money.
