C5 blows off Challenger Hemi

Driving home on the hiway a new challenger pulls up on my left.The light changes and the challenger takes off before me then i realize that he wants to run.He is out on me by about a car length then i hit second and passed him by about two cars.He then pulls up at the next light and gives me a thumbs up,so i return the gesture.

LOL!

Just read OPs stats - I/E, 357rwhp. SRT-8 would have to be fully tuned to give him a good run. My guess it was an SRT-8.

It was an SRT 8. Those things are pretty quick,certainly not faster than my Vette.My Vette has been off the road since last October so that was the first run of this year.It does put down 357 at the wheels from the last time it was up on the dyno and keeps up to a stock C5 ZO6.This Vette is super clean and has won a few awards at the all Corvette shows. The latest mod done was lowering it on the stock bolts and next week I will add the cross drilled powder coated rotors.The car also has a complete Alpine sound system and a small sub.

Your Vette also happens to be one of the rarest and nicest color combos.

It means to lower the cars on the stock bolts, redrill the cotter pin points and drop the car an inch. This is on the outer transverse rear leaf spring.

Burning rubber since 1982!!
