    Charger R/T goes down to Lightning

    My cousin and I were in his '99 Lightning and came up behind a Hemi Charger R/T. He saw us and took off so we followed and caught the next light. We took the lead from the very start and had a four truck lead by 80mph when we shut down. The Lightning only has an intake and cat-back, we also had 400 pounds of sandbags in the back.

    Sandbags will def help w/ the traction problems Lightning's have. You beat a heavy 350hp Charger.

    NO, my guess is his posi's worn out. My cousins always spins both tires. And just cause it's a truck don't underestimate a Lightning, especially if it's had a pully change. Although in this case, being peg legged will hurt him.

    The Lighnting hooks as good as my Camaro does. And the Lightning weights more than a Charger.

    How much do Lightnings weigh?

    He needs to race an SRT-8. That's like me picking on a stock GT.
