If you ONLY pull a 1.7 short, im gonna drive to TX, rip yer azz out that seat and drive it myself and pull a 1.4 !!!

Worry about breaking later, BEAT THAT BAMMA !!! Assuming your getting slicks, rev er to 6500, say a prayer, and pop that clutch like you stepped on a nail at 3am on your way to the bathroom.

Nah, I got street shoes... I don't have the 300M Billet c.v.'s yet or subframe connectors (even though I stair at them every friggin' day...) I will eventually. I figure a 1.7 on d.r.'s is good.

Has anyone figured out how to remove weight from these cars yet? it cant weigh 3800lbs just based on the body itself. There HAS to be some form of weight added that can be removed.

I actually weighed in at 3670 with a full tank,, I had to add 130lbs of ballast to make the 3800lb cutoff.
I have removed the spare tire and assorted crap,fuel tank cage,hood padding,plastic things over valve covers, and replaced skid plate with BMR, also my rims weigh about 5lbs less each (20lb total)
however I also added the driveshaft loop and the xpipe which combined added like 15lbs.

Man I need some sticky tires... and an auto haha. The 6 speed was just too much fun to pass up though. But 12.9 at 103 makes me reconsider. I went a 1.8 in my truck one time... that was a FUN launch, and 1.7 has to be awesome! Time to build the rear and get some ET Street Radials!!

Great times.

As for the Charger... poop! I can't wait until my friend's SRT-8 comes in. That'll be a fun day.
