Dakota R/T drag race
My old dakota *rip*. Fastest 1/4mile run of 14.25. Mods at the time this
video was taken, if I can remember correctly: Gibson cat-back Exhaust, Gibson headers, no cat, 52mm Throttle
body, Mopar performance PCM, Autolite 3923 plugs, Taylor Spiro-pro wires
with brass cap and rotor, cold air intake, Groundforce 2 inch front/rear
drop kit, Nitto tires. I think that's it.
04 RAM SRT VS DAKOTA RT
Me in my 04 srt-10 against my buddy in his dakota r/t. Mine has K&N and
magnaflow. He has a ton of stuff done but the most recent addition is the
tremec t-56 tranny installed like the one's in the ram srt.
Dodge Dakota Drag Racing 8.30 1/8th Mile
A pass from Nov 18th. 8.3 1/8th mile ET and a nice 1-2 chirp shift on
Mickey Thompson ET Drag Slicks. Good Exhaust sound as I raced a nice and quiet slower
truck. Had a late RT so I didn't get the win. Still a nice clean pass with
good sound of my truck
11 second Dakota R/T ... 2007
This video was shot at Atco, NJ 11/16/07. It was my best pass at the time.
I have since run in the 10s several times. The video will be up soon.
This truck is completely street legal, is still running the stock short
block, and even passes local emissions testing.
Dodge Dakota Coolant Leak Repair - Including Bypass Hose, Thermostat, Water Pump, etc.
To get to what turned out to be a Thermostat leak we had to remove the
The Serpentine belt, the fan, the Air Conditioning Compressor, the
Alternator and the A/C and Alternator Bracket.
This way you can easily access the bypass hose, the thermostat housing, and
the upper heater hose (or otherwise called the heater to engine hose).
This also gives you free access to the water pump if you were going to
replace it. This is actually the easiest way to access the water pump as
opposed to the way the service manual describes removing it (without
removing the A/C and Alternator bracket).
However, after doing the job we discovered a second leak on the lower
heater hose (or the heater to water pump return hose). Which also needed
to be corrected.
