SRT8 Charger kill

Was cruising on a split 4 lane road this afternoon when low and behold an SRT8 Charger came by in the left lane besdie me and shadowed me for about 1/8 mile. He finally got next to me and tapped the gas a few times to get my attention. I just looked over and threw a wave his way to let him know I knew was there. Well he got in front of me as a light turned red. He was lead car and there was traffic on the left so I couldn't line up side by side. When the light changed he nailed it and of course what could I do? I stayed right on his tail until the left lane opened up and slid to his left side and pulled about 3 cars on him before he let out. Caught him side by side at the next light and we talked for a few minutes before the light changed. Nice guy.
I had clicked TC off this time so when the light changed I spun through first and part of second but still managed to pulled another car on him before we let out. Alot of fun. Nice looking cars.

Nice Kill. Those are nice cars and I would have thought it would have been closer if you are both stock. You must have had the driver's edge.

Nice kill, could happen with the bolt-ons, but the cam ftw!

Was he stock or modded?

Nice kill, the cam was over kill all you needed was the fuzzy dice mod and it still would have been game over.

He had the modded edge. 404/393 to the ground. If he pulled on the SRT-8 that hard I don't think the SRT-8 was modded. I haven't had the pleasure of running one of those yet. Good run.

Thanks guys. I think it was the fuzzy dice that gave me the edge! No he was bone stock but sharp looking car. No time slips yet but I do have a set of mounted drag radials in the basement. I've already started planning on the next phase on the car. I didn't build it for the track just for fun sunny days.
Looks like heads and a stronger cam down the road. The catch is if I go with that a tranny build and stall will be needed. I do need to get it to the track next spring to see what I can do. As is I would think low 12's if I can drive it right.
