    I have never had a problem with a new stock dodge (besides that viper on the interstate) most times its a slow steady pull I raced a srt8 from 40 to 130 and that was not much of a race but I think it was a auto car don't know if that was a factor or not. Im a bolt on car with a tune.

    For a bolt on car you must be running mid 12's at at 111 mph?? An SRT8 isn't much of a race?
    That's what my wifes car runs and a 300C SRT8 was a tough pull out on the highway. I didn't run away from it by any means. Your bolt on car must be quicker than my wifes car or the SRT8's aren't running very well out your way.
    Maybe those SRT8's weren't trying that hard?

    the srt 8 392 challenger is pushing about 470hp, while the srt8 charger is going to be pushing out 460 to about 465 hp, i used to work at a dodge crysler jeep dealership, and the first srt8 392 challenger we got was an inarg edition, white with blue stripes, pretty bad ass, but im still not a fan of the dodge cars......

    I wouldn't kick one out of my garage, (if it were a challenger) Of course I wouldn't kick any of the classic chryslers out of the garage either.

    Yeah I wonder about a lot of these "Kill" stories especially when concerning faster cars like the SRTs. Just because you punch it and pull on someone doesn't mean it's a race. If that's the case my GTO has been killed by many a mini van and SUV. 6.1 SRTs run low 13s stock, even my buddy who drives like crap was in the mid 13s. He is now in the mid 12s with headers, exhaust, airbox and a conservative tune. I have no doubt with better 60ft times he'd be running low 12s. The new SRTs are in the 12s stock. At times when it doesn't seem like much of a race it's because it really wasn't a race at all.

    Well I don't know if it was driver or not but from 40 to 130 it was pull nothing huge like 2 or 4 car lengths but at least a car between us and unless he just liked staring at the ass end of my car witch I guess is possible I got his ass a w is a w.

    I can't get many domestics to rum me in my Toyota. But when I had my 98 WS6, Everyone wanted to run. I would love a chance to run a big hemi.

    No offense, but a WS6 with it's racerboy wing on the back is going to attract alot of attention I would think. Frankly I don't even notice toyota's and the like. Most of that new stuff just blends in with the crowds.

    For an old fart like me, cars like that just blend in. Nothing there to grab my attention.

    No hating on my part. As I stated "no offense" in my first response. I just don't view those cars as threatening or racey. Although I am aware some of the turbo cars are extremely quick. But when they blend in with the crowds it's just not something I'd notice. Plus you have so many kids driving little foreign cars with fart cans, I just don't pay attention anymore. It has to have a muscular appearance and sound to grab my attention. Honestly even if you were driving a new vette or camaro, they don't necessarily make me jump up and notice either.

    Now if you were driving say,,,,,a 69 chevelle, a 70 cuda, or anything that is at least 35 years old, I would spot that out of a crowd

    No problem. I give respect to everyone. I love the LS cars. Hopefully I'll have a Super Charged GTO by next year, to park next to my Japanese ladies.
    It's gotta be fast and sexy.

    I think the Supra is noticeable! I've always liked those cars.
