    1/4 mile times:

    Both 12.8
    Both 104.xx mph (1578 foot D.A. for the TRX; for the Lightning- D.A. doesn't matter)

    Close racing!

    A buddy just told me that the EV Rivian blew everyone away.

    Yes, the electric Rivian is at least a second quicker in the 1/4 mile than the TRX or Lightning and runs the same ET as my SRT 10. Crazy stuff!!

    In my opinion, it's a good thing they are fast because they sure aren't pretty.

    At 7300+ pounds with a Driver, performance like that just proves that torque is a wonderful thing.

    A range of 220 miles or so isn't sterling though and it drops to 1/2 that "pulling a trailer" according to Car & Driver.

    We need new power sources that pull cosmic energy from black-holes.
