First kill.. dodge challenger srt8

Had my first real race in my goat today.. and it was awesome to finally see how she did even only with CAI, exhaust and short throw. I don't know what year it was,(newer) but a srt8 pulled up next to me rockin' the grey with black stripes. He had some dirty exhaust on it and from the second he saw me he became interested. We left the stop light and he bit and did a pull to around 55. It was a total tank. Rolled my window down and asked if "that thang got a hemi?!" and we agreed on a 20 roll. I did a pull into 3rd gear and he didn't stand a chance! Felt good to smoke a car that costs 3 times as much as mine.

Those Challengers are tanks. They really are. My ex girlfriends brother had the SRT8. We raced multiple times and I took him every one of them. Like you stated, he paid around 60k for his car, let's just say he was pretty pissed haha

He has the 09 SRT8 which is rated at about 425 hp at crank. His car weighed around 4300 lbs with him in it, with mine weighing in at around 3900. Thats an extra 400 lbs. That definitely becomes a major issue

What Challenger costs $60K? The MSRP on a 2011 392 SRT8 (470hp) is just under $44K. I think someone has bein bs-ing you.......

It was all custom. He had the paint job custom, the navigation system, the high end sound package, custom lowered suspension, custom rims, etc. It was not all from the dealer. When everything was said and done, it totaled to around $60k, I was there when they signed the papers.

It was a darn nice car, and I know they weight alot, but I really thought it would perform better than that.

I agree. I absolutely love the look, but not the performance. Here is my ex's brothers. Pretty sick. I was wrong, it was the R/T, but definitely was not stock.

I was all fired up when I saw the concept Challenger at the auto show. I also scored two shirts for being the only one to answer some old school Challenger questions.

I was dead set on getting the car to match my shirts lol, but then the news was released regarding it being built on the Charger platform. Right then I knew it was over.
