    I would say you, here are some numbers from a 73 Charger, stock 0 to 60 and 1/4 mile, it's allready close to 2 seconds slower, (stock vs. stock) they just dont hook up well, to narrow of tires

    is the guts of the 440 stock? what about rear end gears? If he's even mildly cammed and has good compression ratio, and a decent rear end and tires, my $$$ is on the Challanger

    Why does everyone say " it's just an A4" I ran mine last tuesday, and it went 13.46... The car is BONE STOCK w/ 55k on the ticker.

    Two of the cars I BEAT, were 06 GTO M6s, had them both by a couple of lengths at the 60'...

    just a ?

    Challengers and Cuda's didn't come with 440s past '71. After that the biggest engine was a 360. Those numbers that were posted sound more like a 340. I should know because I have a '72 Barracuda that has a 318(for now) and with a new intake and carb I am running better numbers than that, and 318s are considered economy engines. Also you should know the 440 six-pack was known to be just as fast as the Hemi capable of mid 13s on stock tires and mid 12s on drag radials.So even a mildly modified 440 could be trouble.

    Well the challenger is my dads car. A 440 was put into it. I don't know the exact gears, but when you going 30-35 mph it sounds like your in second gear.

    If i got a stall, would i for sure beat him? I just want to be able to beat him to shut him up. I'm afraid to race because 1. he wants to race for slips, 2. if i lose i wont hear the end of it.

    woulda, coulda, shoulda....

    Not knowing anything about the car other than the mods mentioned...I'm still putting my $$$ on the Challenger...the 440 is a very nasty powerplant and the Challenger is light by 60-70's musclecar standards...if he's addressed traction issues and other things, he's gonna kill ya...I watch 440 equipped Challengers turn 12's all the time at our local drag strip with only mild modifications...he'll make you look bad

    Saw a moderately built 440 in a Polara (heavy car about 4000#'s) run 11.50@116 on drag tires.

    Just race him and get it over with... If he beats you then you, do some work and try another day.

    are you kidding? if its in true form that 440 will tear you a new ahole.I did some street racing back in the days those cars roamed the streets.The ls1 cars are quick for a stocker but lets be real here.I'll bet that 440(if its in any kind of decent condition)is gonna romp on you so hard you'll think Santa Claus just fkd you!
