Wondering about thoughts and experiences with any SRT8s? Namely has anyone run a 300C SRT8, Dodge Magnum SRT8 and what are your expectations for the Charger SRT8 (that one looks mean from the front btw).
Don't recall the published specs for the 300C off had but the specs for the Magnum puts it a couple tenths slower than the Goat because of heft. I thought I was heavy, I believe these three are all over 4100 lbs.
I torched a Dodge Magnum the other day who kept riding the rear and apparently torched a big Lexus LS and Chryster Pacifica by default because for some reason they thought that they could join the fray. I looked up and realized they were all trying to keep up. Funny. Ironically, moments later a Dodge Magnum SRT8 pulled onto the highway behind and just paced me at about two car lengths or so behind me. He didn't even once try to run but the guy in the regular magnum with his 19's blinging went all out. LOL.
Oh, I also took down a sunset orange Z. Truth is, there isn't much excitement in that since these are all easy but I must admit that I find joy in making quick work of performance sedans (ala Maxima, Lexus, Acura, Bimmers, etc) that try to play with the big dogs. I am more of cruiser and if it weren't for the real life performance stats of my goat one would say I'm a poser since I rarely hunt around here as the competiton really doesn't run. Equally matched cars racing on the highway is disaster waiting to happen. But I do like to take the "inferiors" down when they insist on riding my rear on rudely blowing by and then cutting close in front of as if I'm driving a slow hoopty or something. Perhaps I responde at times to these folkis because these are easy, safe kills and I'm adverse to triple digits speeds. Had a close call up there and don't like to go there much anymore.
That isn't being a bully is it?
Anyway, what have you guys seen, experienced or say about the SRT8s? Nice to see all that performance on the road and the goat seems to get much respect from the competition it seems (Saleens, Cobras, Vettes, etc). Just your friendly neighborhood dump truck, van, soccer mom, grocery getters, performance sedans and the like that wanna give it a go. I get amazed sometimes by the women in camry's and the like that put their front in at the sound of the GTO. Ricers don't count.
