    my friend's buick vs rt charger

    sounded like the charger had exhaust. the buick is a park avenue, n/a 3.8. charger takes off at light, i punched it while still in first and held even. it pulled me a little bit but jesus christ i almost bought one of those to replace my old v6 firebird. i was depressed.

    Something is wrong here cause a R/T is only a low 14 second car but there is no way in hell your park avenue is a 14 second car, most likely 16 second.

    haha .. isn't that the truth!!

    One of the guys I work with has one of those yellow rumblebee charger R/T thingys. He swears he stomps G8's and Mustang GT's all the time. Has never been beaten; he's quite amazing to listen to. Yet, amazingly, whenever I mearly suggest taking the cars to a country road and "playfully" seeing what they can do... he has to meet his wife, or get gas, or whatever.

    if it's a "super bee" it's an SRT-8 and is capable of stomping stock G8 GTs and mustang GTs. SRT-8s are low 13 sec cars.

    It has no "hood scoop" and no "SRT" badge on the back... It says rumblebee... I don't think it says "superbee".

    i've been doing this sort of thing for years. the charger was revving at a stingray to its left and i was on the right. i was excited to see a good run and went aggressive on the throttle but didn't want any lawdogs to think i was part of the fun so i took off but then the stingray didn't go - so i went wot asap and yeah, the charger put about a length on me to 60 but jesus i was in the grandma mobile. my trans am would have been about 15 bazillion carlengths ahead. Maybe it was a v6 all badged up to look r/t but it didn't sound like a v6.
