You gotta do fair comparisons, take into consideration that the 4 cylinder for weighs MUCH less than these trucks, these trucks are a little over 5k pounds while that ford was probably around 3k... lighter car equals winning, try racing a more fair comparison like a 5.7 hemi ram from the same era..

You say it's just a 4 cyl, but I'm guessing its a Ecoboost 4 cyl (2.0L), so that means its a 4cyl capable of making the same power as a small V8 over a very wide speed range and weighs less.

Yes the gear ratio's and weight at 40 - 45 won't beat much Try a slower start so your truck will drop into first gear then you'll get a better start.

Gotta watch out for the EcoBoost, those little turbos sneak up on ya. Time to upgrade the SSS. Get a Custom Tune!

Exactly why we all need to upgrade to 6.2 Engines with Boost
