    Met a Challenger owner- Stock RT runs 9's

    did you know stock RT's run 9's?
    Im trading mt car in!!! lol

    the story...

    When i was driving home this evening saw a white RT so i thought id take a look... started chatting with the owner. Of course i have my Camaro hoody on, he asks so i tell him what i drive. we go on chit chatting... says he has a cold air box? lol guess its the new name for CAI...

    he asks the hp on mine... well its stock so 426hp
    i tell him not bad, its fast... 13.0 in the 1/4 or better..

    "oh yea? that slow" the guy is dead serious.."mine runs 9's"
    i ask him... are you sure? only upgrade is a CAI and it runs 9's
    guy was dead serious.... "yea bro.. 9's"

    lol i just went along with it...



    just so happens that as soon as i leave my buddy with an RT calls and wants to meet up....//// race.
    he is always boasting how his RT is faster... right.

    soo he goes on and hes telling me he got a tune and a CAI and got +80hp...
    kinda think thats bs.

    but i think i need one of those tunes!


    MAGICAL cold air box!

    It's a damn shame when someone only knows of an 1/8th mile track!

    I met a guy with a challenger a while back, he said it ran i think 11's all day long and it was stock, with big ole 20's on it. He's from around here, but i havent gotten a chance to race him yet. He was serious too. I had a woman with a 300c try to convince me she could take anything on the highway..uhg...

    just to let you know ..a cold air intake and a tune depending on the application could get you 30+ ..especially those restrictive p.o.s intake tracts on the dodges ...mind you for our cars a lid replacement shows 10rwhp or close too..so imagine replacing the stock box and getting a aggressive tune...so i would cut out the teasing on cold air intakes and tunes..as 13.0 isnt all that fast ( i cant remember if you said how fast you ran in the 1/4 or not)

    they run stock 13.5 according to motor trend ...so you can do the math...you could end up eating your words if he ever races you at the track..wont be 9 seconds tho

    true, but... motor trend always turns slower numbers. caranddriver is about the most accurate imo and has turned 13.0-13.1 quarter numbers. but then again hell it could be testing conditions,blah,blah..... i agree on a good tune tho. didnt Frost get like 50whp outta a stock or near stock ls3?

    Challengers are mostly purchased by older guys/girls apparently. Every one I have seen has been a white haired guy, or middle aged woman driving it. They are pretty slow unless they are modded heavily. To the OP good story. I met an LS1 Trans Am driver at the track the other day with just a lid who said he ran 10's.

    unless it is the dodge track pack. which is supposed to be quicker but i dont remember seeing 9s anywhere on the ads. he probably thought the ford track pack and dodge track pack are the same thing.

    Its a little hard to confuse a r/t 5.7 liter 14 second car with the dodge drag pack forged stroker.

    Great looking cars. Back east they were being modified and dipping into the 11's.

    Out here in AZ I haven't seen a fast one yet. Last track day I raced at there was a 6.1 version that couldn't get out of the 14's.
