You'll have videos where the Raptor R is faster, videos where the TRX is faster.

The Ford owners will say the one that shows the Raptor is faster is the "correct" video, and the TRX one is a farce.
The Ram owners will say the one that shows the TRX is faster is the "correct" video and the Raptor one is a farce.


Biggest arguments where men will almost go fisticuffs:
Pickup brands
Milwaukee vs Dewalt


Why is this? Why don't folks fight over AT&T vs Verizon or Doritos vs Pringles?

Why do people "attach" themselves to those items soooo strongly? It's not like you built the company...its a product you bought. LOL.

I have Milwaukee. About 15 12v tools and about 15 18v tools.
I've watched so many tests of power tools on Project Farm (youtube). In some tools the Milwaukee is the winner, in others it's Dewalt. Both are excellent. OVERALL...I rank powertools like this

1. (tie, alphabetical order), Dewalt, Makita, Milwaukee, Ridgid.
2..... so many don't know where to start.

I chose milwaukee at first because of ...i don't remember. Something that Dewalt didn't have.

Once I started with Milwaukee chargers and batteries... obviously I'm going to stick with them.

I feel like Milwaukee has more "gadgets" and lawn care stuff.

I think Ryobi is a GREAT choice for most consumer-Joe homeowners. Prices are great, selection is the best there is, and I saw a test recently on Project Farm, where the Ryobi finished higher than BOTH Milwakee in a particular tool.

If you read the article closely you will notice that the specs are for the dodge vs the standard v6 raptor 0 to 60. My molded rv6 aptor is pulling my buddies stock trx 1/8 mile drag and 0 to 60 on a draggy..The raptor is way lighter especially if you have the smaller cab!

Again....lol....folks arguiing over vehicle brands.

Why on earth would someone have such a strong attitude about a hunk of metal?

"Ford is BETTER! GRRRRR!""
"Ram is BETTER! GRRRR!"
"Chevy is BETTER! GRRR!"

If you think one is better, buy it. Why get angry over it? LOL. And plenty of people get angry over it. And want to "prove" that they were better at spending their money than the other guy was at spending his. LOL!

Only a genuine dooshbag would get angry over "his vehicle vs other guy's vehicle"
