    1. Automatic LS1, tire/wheel package, solo driver, exhaust tips are hidden?? (unusual, I know). I have a passenger (225lbs!). We both go WOT after a turn onto a highway, I fumble w/ the autostick giving him an edge but run him down in 3rd gear passing by him. He won't look over as he turns at the next light.

    2. This one is BARELY a kill. LS1 T/A, 6spd, tinted windows and tailights. We slow down on the highway and finally go at it after several attempts. In 2nd only briefly, he's a little ahead, shifts and pulls a little more. In 3rd I start passing him. It's pretty close and since 3rd is my gear in the 1/4 and my hp peak is at redline, it seemed fair. We both give a thumbs up/v-victory sign and go on our way.

    OH! I think the GT was in the wrong gear and didn't want to rev his motor w/ the downshift. No objective, published 1/4 test gives the Z that much of an advantage, if any at all. Sorry, had to comment!


    Nice kills and nice car.

    Id love to have raced you when I had just lid,catback...:firedevil
    It wouldnt be fair or even a race at this point.


    Although I just had another child and I was considering a new 300c srt8. I need something roomy and fast. May wait for a good deal on a charger.

    How much did you pay for yours?

    anyone see the episodes of dream car garage where they did the hemi challenge?
    they did a whole bunch of upgrades to the srt8 charger : suspension, supercharger, intake, etc. After they were done upgrading the car they did a performance test. The srt8 stock did mid 13's and after the upgrades it still ran in 13's
    I guess my question is why isnt it running better with the blower and other stuff on it?

    Although I definitely agree with you, it really does depend on the driver though...

    Your right their not that fast. I raced a srt-8 charger just this weekend and pulled almost a full car length in first then when I hit second I started really pulling away. It was not even close. All I have is a TB, MAF, LID and exhaust on a 2002 ws.6. The funny part was he begged me to race. I guess someone is telling these guys that they have the hottest thing going, and they really believe it until they actually race. The guy I raced was truly suprised that My TA beat him. He acted like he had been mislead by the dodge dealer. Oyeah he had a catback system and a bunch of stickers in his windows. I guess that heavy car eats all that horsepower up. The guy was nice enough and didnt try to come up with any excuses. Anyway just wanted to set things straight speaking from real life experience.

    maf,lid,exhaust=12 second LS1.
    Excuses dont do any good when you drive an automatic its all up to the car unless he raced from a dead spot he couldnt have any.

    DOes not mean his car is slow just means your is fast.

    Are you sure it was a 425 HP package?Wasnt a 345 hp one? I have no doubt you won, but to say its slow?

    I saw that too. I think they did a lousy job tuning it, obviously. Probably didn't do anything for fuel delivery. Plus they showed from a handling and braking standpoint they couldn't improve what was already pretty well dialed in. It was a stupid episode.

    To answer another question, I paid sticker (most do), $43.5k. Included power & heated seats, roof, nav, blue tooth, Boston Acoustic sound system w/ Kicker amp, Sirius for 1 year, dual zone climate control, alarm, side airbags, etc. etc. Fully loaded.

    I guess I should have phrased that different. I know that his car is not slow just not as fast as I was lead to believe. It was the SRT-8 and it was closer than what I made it sound like. I raced a R/T Charger also at a stoplight. It was not even close. So there is a huge difference in the two. I didnt mean to cut down his car, I'm just real happy with mine.
