    Never had my T/A over 135MPH. And sure wouldn't keep going if an officer was trying to stop me.

    I don't trust 5th or 6th gear at WOT.

    Yes I know. Which is why I tried showing a sense of humor when replying. I really want to run one though to find out how good they are against an F-Body. They are nice cars though, minus two doors and I think they'd look even nicer.

    Most of the cops in my hometown were pricks, but one was cool/understanding... My buddy and i were painting lines on the hiway outa town marking off a 1/4 mile with industrial pavement marking paint, and somone called us in evidently... just as we finished, my buddy wanted to run 'em but i said no we been out here to long somone had to have turned us in,

    so we go to leave and we are coming back into town (2miles) and pop over the last hill and sure enough the sheriff and his durango was headed out there. We were both doing about 70 in a 55, i was just going to coast it into town, cuz we were close, but my buddy dropped it a gear and went to pass me so i couldnt let that slide, so i took off too, we turned opposite ways once on the outskirts, and got away with out a hitch,

    i was filling up with gas before i went home later that night the sherriff pulled under the cannopy beside me and asks if i had any idea about a couple kids painting lines exactly 1/4 mile apart outa town....... I was trying to not laught because in a small town he knew who it was but i just said nope dont know who that would be....... he just replied well if you hear who did it, better tell them not to be doing that any more....... he mentioned the fines and dangers and i just said ill be sure to tell them...... as he smiled and drove off....

    stock for stock 1/8 its pretty close... 1/4 they get us by about two tenths or so.. but trap higher..

    highway roll from like 50 the will walk away pretty good.... lid and a cutout it should be pretty dead even.. anything over that... fbody wins..

    I've run two...one from a dig and one from a 60mph roll...beat them both (mods in sig), the dig was a closer race because of my spinning and his traction control ...I got the one on the Highway by about a car

    I would love and SRT-8 Charger as a DD, it's got great looks and enough Power to Weight for a DD.

    Chargers are slow and heavy. I Owned an 06 R/T for about 3 months due to an error in judgement. We traded it in for my wife's car and I bought a GTO like I should have in the first place.

    The R/T Ran a 13.9 @101 at best. It was truly a turd for 32K$. Also, the tranny started leaking @ 20K miles!!! I was like WTF? I took it to the dealership an they said I was driving it too hard. I hardly ever redlined it. At least the warranty covered it long enough for me to get rid of it.

    should have been faster than 13.9.. even with driver error it should have trapped better than 101..

    That's what I said.

    That was the best time I ever ran. And I am a decent driver. My partner at work has a magnum R/T that runs 13.5s @103. Consistently. I dunno if the chargers are slower or what...

    I got mine at REI...Bass Pro Shops has a great selection too...I was just there getting some ammo and saw that they're starting up their holiday sales, now might be a good time to get one.

    anywhere between 550-650mph, depending on if we have a head wind or tail wind.
