Late Model Racecraft of Houston, Texas appears to be on their way to beef up the already high performing RAM 1500 TRX. But the 702 hp Hellcat truck isn’t the first truck they’ve ever worked on. Take for example the first Procharged Chevy Silverado from 2020.
In a recent Instagram post, LMR showed off their ability to use the TRX’s launch control feature and said they were testing it out as a “dragy baseline” for what’s to come, presumably a Stage 1 kit that ups the ante on what a super truck can be. Along with checking out the LMR C7 Corvette Z06 owned by Rapper Kevin Gates, you’ll catch LMR front man Steven around the 6-minute mark, checking out the underside of the company’s Ram 1500 TRX, stating he wants to do two tunes for the truck, one using E85 and one using 93-octane fuel. He briefly mentions they don’t have a name for the kit yet. That said, Steven explains that the package would include a new upper and lower pulley system, and new fuel injectors to allow for more boost. You can find them testing launch control on the TRX at the 9:57 mark.

A stock Ram 1500 TRX is capable of hitting 0-60 in 4.5 seconds, so it’s going to be fun to see what LMR come sup with in order to exceed that kind of performance on the street. Currently, customers can build and price both the 2021 and 2022 TRX now on Ram’s build and price configurator. The 2021 model starts at $70,425 and the 2022 model will run you a bit more at $76,880 both of which come in at a higher base price point than the Ford F-150 Raptor, however the Raptor only produces 450 horsepower with a V6 engine. Ford Performance looks to answer back with the upcoming F-150 Raptor R, which is confirmed to have a V8 engine, and is expected to produce around 755 horsepower.
