    Old Man SRT8 300C VS The L.

    Yesterday I got my Lightning dynoed to see where my baseline horse power was so on the way back I was on I35 south when an older man passed me in a silver SRT8 300C. He kind of throbbed a little at me but I was on the phone with my buddy telling him about the dyno results. When I got off the phone the 300 was about 3 cars ahead of me. I got into the fast lane and caught up to him. As soon as I was beside him he had a huge grin on his face and gave me the thumbs up.(His car was FREAKIN loud...is the stock exhaust that loud???) So we slowed to about 55mph and I gave him the sign for 3 honks he nodded like he understood so I began honking and on the second honk he punches it. I'm thinking what the F. So I hit it and he just pulls like crazy on me. He lets off and I catch back up. I motion 3 honks WAIT this time... Same thing 2nd honk and he is off. I hit it again but he just kills me. He lets off and I pull up again, I just motioned 3 honks NOT 2!!!! but 3!!!! Finally he understands and we hit it the same time. This was surprisingly a good race. I jump maybe an 1/8 of a car (his front bumper was at my front tire.) Then he starts to pull back on me when we hit 100 his front door is at my front bumper. We stay on it all the way to 120. By then he is probably 1 to one and a half car lengths in front. We let off I get beside him and we give each other the thumbs up and part our separate ways. Pretty cool old guy in my book!

    Do you know the specs on those srt8 motors, and if you dont mind telling what where you numbers after the dyno run.

    Those SRT8's make 425hp and 420 ft lbs of torque, and even with the car weighting over 4200lbs it is still quick. My brothers works for Dodge and let me ride in the car and for it's size it was fast, but the cost of the car is alttle out of my price range.

    I wish my brother would have let me drive the car, but he was a dick that day. It is a big, heavy family car with the power to still have fun with on a daily basis.

    Trap speeds as high as 108-110mph. If going from a roll, do it at 70mph - its the bottom of 3rd and sucks for the SRT8. 120mph is about the top of 3rd.
