Interesting comparison. A small light weight performance car against a relatively heavy full sized truck. Kind of like racing an 18 wheeler and a diesel pickup. Gee I wonder who would win....

Everyone thinks the Dodge 5.7 hemis are "hot" trucks and for trucks they are. Actually against your Stratus I think he did very well. However, I'd like to see you do the same thing against one of the new Dodge SRT 10s. Now THAT is a performance truck.

Ford's Lightning is also a performance vehicle (notice I didn't say truck) that is fast as hell, but totally useless when it comes to anything else. Ford may think its a truck but when the average rice burner can haul more weight (four passengers plus luggage) than the Lightning is rated for (under 700 lbs load capacity) I say it doesn't qualify as a truck, it just happens to look like one.
