Diesel World - - Contents -

It’s of­fi­cial: The Done Right Diesel Per­for­mance Pro Mod Ram we’ve been warn­ing you about is on the loose. Re­cently, Ben Shad­day’s fiber­glass-bod­ied, 3,400-pound truck was spot­ted mak­ing some test hits, and it didn’t dis­ap­point. On its first pass ever, the lit­tle white rocket stormed the eighth-mile in 5.16 sec­onds and trapped 131 mph in the process. Ac­cord­ing to the NHRA’S eighth-mile to quar­ter­mile calculator, that trans­lates to an 8.10 at 164 mph. That’s not a bad first show­ing. Ac­cord­ing to what the Free­dom Rac­ing En­gines 6.8L Cummins made on the en­gine dyno, the truck was uti­liz­ing about 60 per­cent of its avail­able power on the 5.16 pass.
