Charger SRT8 with a twist

On my daily commute I ended up at a traffic light beside a Charger SRT8. It was silver with black stripes like the AAR Cuda had on the rear fenders.

I had a feeling the guy wanted to run and I had decided to oblige. Unfortunately for him he tipped his hand to me. The thing was supercharged. He put it in nuetral and reved and I picked up on the whine instantly.

Long story short we launched about equal and he put about a half car on me till the 1-2 shift. By the top of second I had almost evened it up and by the top of 3rd I had a solid car and a half lead.

I let off there and blinked my lights, but he stayed in it till way past prudent. We were on a 55 mph road and he ran up to about 140 and we had some light patchy fog this morning.

Fun run though and he had impressive power.

I'll play Deuuuce for us.

The SRT8 is a 12 second car. It gets into the 12's more times than the GTO does stock. See all the magazines show the SRT8 as faster than the GTO. The reason you don't see SRT8's at the track running the number that magazines claim is because the drivers don't know how to get it in super special mode. Once put in super special mode the cars are almost undefeatable.

Fergy, there are tons of people with superchargers on the 6.1L SRT8 cars that are running into the 10's and 11's. You caught a guy that obviously was an inferior driver and if he would have known what he was doing he would have crushed you.

The SRT8 was created by God to be superior to all other vehicles. There is no disputing this. If you do dispute it you're an idiot and your position is defeated because God says so.

Long live the SRT8. GTO's are ok but SRT8's are great.


I think that pretty much covers it so now he doesn't have to join the conversation.
