    door to door with my buddy's equally modded srt-8 charger(ran a 12.8, although he has a tune and factory headers, so i guess i'm still behind) thru a conservative 1st and a lil bit into second.

    Always compare modded cars to stock ones do you? My 520whp supra could smoke my T/A when it was stock, real real bad go figure.

    Truth is there is always too many factors to account for to know the winner of a stock srt-8 car and a f-body. All yo ucna go off of in internet racing is that both are mid 13 cars on average stock and both trap 104-108mph.

    Charger SRT-8...4200lbs & 425hp = 9.88 pounds per hp

    So in this mindset (negating gear ratio and power curves) the F-Body would win because there is less pounds per hp.
    what about torque? 6.1 vs 5.7

    i do agree though considering there are not very many stock f-bodys any more, and all the srt-8s i've seen are driven by moms who dont care about mods, i'd say any given f-bod vs anygiven srtcharger would probably be a win for us.

    T/A's beat everything on the road, we all know that. why are these questions even asked? I don't get it. perhaps a better question would be what if a T/A raced the space shuttle to earths outer most atmosphere which would win?

    It comes down to weight and traction and driver,etc.. can't just go by the HP numbers.

    also our cars have been under rated on power...

    WOW, is that a picture of your Galaxy Blaster, your lunar WMD, AKA the fastest motorized vehicle in this and many other galaxies? I like it! Perfect color and just so sexy! You continue on in your adult conversation, I’ll quietly roll on to the next conversation…… until your fun comment I was pretty much out of it. The SRT vs. T/A both with no mods….the SRT wins, my T/A was stalled, exhaust cut-out, lid and I could not run against my friends un- modded SRT, never, from a stop or roll. My best ¼ was 12.9 and I could not beat him……ever.

    Trans am has a lighter platform than that of the charger, but in the end it all depends on who is behind the wheel.

    I've raced a couple SRT Chargers and so far, haven't had one even come close. Admittedly, I do have a few mods (smooth bellows, lid and CAI, all SLP) and I don't know what the Chargers were running but so far, 3-0 for me.

    Guys are forgeting that the 01,02 LS1's had the LS6 intake an revised cam from the earlier 98 to 99 LS1's.

    Coming from selling my 07 SRT8 Charger right into my 02 LS1 I'd have to say stock for stock it would be a drivers race.

    98-99 ls1's have a slightly more aggressive cam, you'd think they would be making the same numbers as those with the ls6 intake, but if GM says its newer models are more powerful, its the gods honest truth
