SRT8 Magnum

Guy down the street from me got a SRT8 Magnum about a month ago. It's black with chrome wheels. The guy has the windows tinted real dark too. It's a sharp car.

I went to the grocery store tonight in the Z28. He pulled out at almost the same time as me. He followed me to the main road and turned right behind me. He jumped on it and went for the left lane. I planted my foot and held him off till we got up to about 65 on a 50 mph road, where I let off.

We went a bit further through town where the speed limit drops to 35 and then goes back up to 55 as it heads into the country.

I made the decision if the light at the intersection where the grocery store was at was red and we got beside each other I was going past the grocery store.

Sure enough we ended up at the light. I came out of the hole better than him and slowly pulled to about 90 where I had a bit over 4 cars on him and was still opening up distance.

I let off and waved then slowed and made a u-turn. He did the same. I thought he wanted to race again, but it turned out that he was heading to the store too.

We chatted a bit at the store. He was really suprised because he has beaten Z28's before, even with exhausts on them. I think that Diablosport really helps out on a lightly modded car.

Good Stuff Ferg, before your posts on this forum, I did not expect much out of a Z28 on the streets, let alone one with a good driver.

F-Bodies are mean cars. My T/A ran a [email protected] stock. With full bolt ons and H/C I am into the high 11's.

Its worth buying if your not planning on major mods, heads, cam, LT's. I think its the best of many you can change peramerters too, you don't have to stick with the tune that comes with it, thats if your confident on doing you own settings.

Maybe the guy in the SRT8 beat a couple of LT1's before, if the guy knows the difference between them.

That's a nice kill. You're full bolt-ons, right? He's stock? Sounds like he knows how to drive it.

It's not uncommon stock for stock for an SRT-8 to beat an LS1.
