Default Race with Challenger RT

Recently I raced a challenger rt Hemi 5.7 year 2012. I guessed it would be a certain win coz he was stock ( or so he claims) and i had CAI, headers, axleback, 3.73 nd sct tune (330rwhp). The fact was he pulled away about two cars length (rolling from 60). i raced many hemi's before nd win every time (rolling 40 or from dig). But this time, i lost. Do u think it was me, or just engine size matters.

Not sure. I raced a SRT8 Challenger, not sure of the year, about 70-mph pull starting in 4th (maybe could've used 3rd), and he had about half a car on me when we both let off near 145mph.

Alternatively, I got destroyed by a CTS-V wagon I was told was "stock" (550-ish-hp) in an 85mph rolling start. I stupidly started in 5th and I could barely see the Caddy by the time I hit 100. Would've lost anyways with a 130hp disadvantage, but I wasn't doing myself any favors in 5th. Gearing plays a big role.
