its my brothers and has a lot put into it, and i was very disapointed with it. plus the steering wheel has 6 inches of play in it. find it funny how duramaxes are easy to drive when you want and fast when you want it.
this cummins is like all power or no power. it was strange is all i have to say.
just thought id share my experience.

it all depends on the mods done to the truck, the cummins can be a wicked beast if its built right, my 06 dodge was fairly wicked with twin cp3s twin turbos, injectors lift pump smarty and tst stacked, with nos, water meth and with a south bend clutch, it just depends on how people build them and what they are looking for

You drove a VP truck. That's what the problem is. Most CR's are pretty cool if they have twins and some known good parts on them. P-Pumps drive totally different and can make stupid power. It's too bad the truck itself sucks SO bad. That's the only reason why I bought a Duramax. I love a chevy truck.

I loved my 01 Dodge, only reason I traded it was for a crew cab and a more comfort centered interior. The 01' is also 10 year old technology so you can't expect it is going to be able to compete with current trucks. It's apples and oranges...

i know it had problems. it was definitly faster than my truck with a ppe, but it seemed that whenever i touched the gas it would shoot off like the clutch was just locking all metal to metal. just not fun to drive. we both think its the clutch. kinda obvious haa
i drove his friends 10 sec 24v around a parking lot because its not legal...
that thing was wicked fast. hoping to get my truck down in that second range eventually

when you first get on the forum there is a bunch of welcome things and what not, scroll down and basically pick any of them and at the top of all those posts should say post new thread.
im not too good at explaining, but hope that helps you out
