SRT8 Challenger

I hadn't driven the Vette in about 2-1/2 weeks. It's been neglected since I got my Z28. So I decided it need to be exercised today. Drove it into work and it was the right day.

I caught a light against an SRT8 Challenger. We had a pretty good strip to run on that leads up to the entrance ramp to the freeway.

By the top of first it was pretty much over. I had him by about a half a car length and then just steadily pulled away from him By the time we got to the freeway entrance about a 1/4 mile away, I was well ahead of him, about 6 car lengths at about a 100 mph. I let off and the tool did a ricer fly-by, flashers and all.

I'm sure that on some SRT forum right now a guy with an Orange SRT8 Challenger is telling people he beat a C6 Vette once they got above 100. I can just see it, he's writing, " once we got above 100 the superior power of the Hemi kicked in and I caught him and opened up 5 car lengths by 120."

Nice kill. And yeah I bet it does say that too on a forum somewhere, he feels pretty good about himself now.

Excellent kill! I'm still patiently awaiting my first experience with one of those overweight beasts.

My 06 has a maggie and 500 hp at the rear wheels and I have blown two SRT8 away. The car is to heavy and no low end speed/torque to match me.

Is your Vette stock or do you have some mods? Just wanted to know in case I run up against a Challenger.My C5 Vette has a few mods and runs with stock C5Z06 Vettes.
