Would love to hear your thoughts on the results.

I have a few observations, but I want to hear from you guys first ...

Observations
It must be raining to do these tests, or so it seems
Tank tops make the Furd faster from a roll
BMW sounds like a fart machine
The Durango is an obese pig
10spd vs 8sp in a roll makes a YUUUGE difference

I would still take the 392 just because HEMI V8 BABY:love::love::love::cool::cool::cool::cool:

I skipped through it. 1st and foremost the rain, really. 1/4 times are close but the durango should be solid in the 12s. There was a new st at the track and its best time was a 14 flat so that was about right. Thinking with the rain the da was no good and the st wouldn't fall off as much being twin turbos as the durango would. I heard none of the video and was only interested in the 1/4. Roll racing is gay

The Explorer ST is quite the sleeper.
A tune and they are easily in the 12s. FBOs and they can touch 11s

:sleep: Can't stand listening to this guy + the 'races' he stages seem lame to me.
The new BMW's are UGLY AF to me, didn't even bother to go look at them when I was shopping for the replacement for my DDSRT.

I stopped watching this guy a long time ago. Any MOPAR he's ever had on the channel gets blown away on the shitty unprepared surfaces he stages the races on. Never shows the actual performance capability of the cars at all, just which ones spin the least.

Good, after reading all of this, I won’t even watch it.:love:

You guys want me to run the Durango between the corn fields on a cool morning and report back a 1/4? At least it will hook. The RE is worthless for that on the street.

I watched Sam CarLegion at first, then off again until he started providing 0-60 and 1/4 mile stats. Is he perfect? No, but no auto channel is. I think he's doing a great job for what he has.

And having driven an Explorer ST that was both stock and with the Ford Performance (FP) tune (adds 30 hp and keeps the warranty), I can testify the FP tuned Explorer ST is within one or two tenths of DSRT times. A Dragy showed that particular Explorer ST running 0-60 in 4.7-4.9 sec, the best I've got so far in the little time I've owned the 392 is a 4.59 sec 0-60 mph.

But the sound and looks of the 392, oh yeah ....
