I was getting on a 3 lane road doing 50 mph on the upramp (a clover leaf entrance, I love to see the faces of the other drivers hanging dearly on their steering wheels trying to follow me) and I saw this big black car jumping on my tail. He could not follow in the turn but as soon as I was on the straight road I downshifted in third and gunned it down, the black car jumped on my tail again and at 100 mph he changed lane (I was in the middle lane) and flashed past me. I was dumbfounded until I checked the srt8 specs. By the way, I am stock and driving the GT for 3 weeks only (I did not drive manual for 8 years).
He should't have flown past you that easily if you're drinvinga new 07 GT. What gear were you in? 5th gear yes because 5th sucks. He was definitely modded (Supercharger or nitrous) to fly past you that fast if you were in 4th or below.

"It won't be a race if the stang gets traction. A better weightower ratio, better gearing, 5.1 compared to 5.8 0-60, and 13.7 compared to 14.3 1/4mi. If you race them starting at 100mph, it will be a much better race, but otherwise it's over before it starts. "

You must be thinking of the R/T Charger. The SRT-8 Charger 4186lb/ 425hp = 9.85lb per horse.

He was thinking of the 5.7L 300c that was mentioned in the post he quoted. READ, COMPREHEND, then post.

the srt 8's are unbelievably fast i can beat the 300c in my mach but not the 8's
I dont know, but Ive raced both versions in my mach and beat the charger RT by about 6-8 cars to 105 mph and from a dig I raced a magnum SRT 8 to 100mph or so and had it by 2 cars. Now from a roll, the 8 would porbably give me a hard time, might even beat me, but from a dig makes a huge difference.

The srt8 owners don't even seem to know they are carrying an extra 600lbs of weight compared to a s197 GT. Imagine myself at 150lbs racing on foot a guy that weighs 750lbs. Now i'm going to get a good jump on him from the start and by the end i'm going to completely smoke his fat ***!

LOL, I don't know where I come up with this ****.

Not for nothing, but a C6 Z06 cannot run 13.4 ... It's almost impossible, but yeah, It's fun to fantasize...

Reality is the Z06 is a super car. Even MT(who's drivers can't drive for ****) was able to get 11.6 @ 126.6 on there 12/05 test Z06. Reality Check fellows...
