Earlier this week we brought you the news of Dillon Carter’s Ram 1500 TRX setting the blower-only record for the supercharged half-ton pickup. We specified blower-only, because we heard that there was a TRX that ran 10.70s with nitrous, but when a Google searched turned up nothing. Fortunately, some social media savvy friends found the Instagram account of the owner and driver of the black TRX which did, indeed, run in the 10.70s – making this the quickest TRX in the world.
This black Ram 1500 TRX is owned by the Instagrammer who goes by the name 305trx and he was happy to provide all of the details on his record-setting half-ton pickup.
While this 2021 Ram 1500 TRX is the quickest of its kind, the list of upgrades is surprisingly short. The engine has been upgraded with an ATI lower pulley, 1300cc fuel injectors, a F.A.S. Motorsports ported throttle body, a cat delete, a Gearhead Fabrications cold air intake, a JMS boost-a-pump, a Nitrous Outlet system spraying a 200-shot and a DSMLights E85 tune using HPTuners software. With this setup, this Ram TRX made 909hp and 1,015 lb-ft of torque at the wheels.
This truck is riding on the stock wheels and tires and it is still shifting at the stock setting of 6,100 RPM for the 10.75 run. In short, nitrous, injectors, cat delete, ported throttle body, CAI, boost-a-pump and an E85 tune and this truck was able to run a 10.75 at more than 128 miles per hour.
Best of all, the owner has fairly big plans for this TRX. Some of the plans for the immediate future include an aftermarket heat exchanger and a bigger shot of nitrous, along with beadlock wheels and drag radial tires. There may also be plans to replace the stock IHI blower with a big Whipple, which will obviously make this half-ton Ram a whole lot quicker.
The Record Run
On what we believe is the quickest quarter mile run ever by a Ram 1500 TRX, this truck pulled a 1.712 60-foot time, sprinting to the 8th mile mark with a time of 6.930 and a speed of 103.47 miles per hour. The supercharged and nitrous-fed Ram 1500 then stopped the timers at the quarter mile with a time of 10.75 at 128.01 miles per hour.
You can watch the record run in the video below, but suspect that this wont be the last time that we are talking about this TRX and the 305trx Instagram account. He has a ton of pictures and videos, so for more on this truck, click here to visit the IG account.
