Got killed by a Procharged SRT8 Charger, the guy was cool he said that it put out around 493hp at the wheels. I think is lap times where in the 1:5x, the fastest in the begginer group, eventully he got moved up. I was behind him for a quick second around a corner a few times and the car looks well planted don't look like too much body roll.

First time out. You will be blowing doors in no time flat... Raced MotoCross as a kid and for the first 5 months I sucked wind, lapped and lapped and one day the light came on. Left the sport as a decent 125 expert, too many broken ribs...

Keep us posted Justin and thanks for the Vids!!!

Very cool, thanks for sharing. Did he have stock suspension and F1s?

They do have a good stock suspension.

Funny, at first I thought it would be an "I told you so!" Charger kill and then when I clicked on the video, one of the emoticons said "Hello" and for just an instant I thought it was you talking into the camera.

Hilarious.

Haha. He has stock suspension and had DR's in the rear. I think he said it had some type of factory Corsa:confused I'm not sure.

DRs on a road circuit?? You sure?

The Mopar performance catback is made by Corsa for the SRT-8s.

I was there and the guy did say that he had drag radials on the back.
That is very weird. Didn't that raise a lot of eyebrows?? Unfortunately I've never had any experience with DRs, but from what I've read, that would be rather silly, right?

Hey I raised mine when he said it. I don't have any experience with DR's myself but I would think that they would have alittle bit more sidewall flex than street tires. He probly do alittle bit of drag racing too. I can tell you this he was not afraid to drive his car.

Nitto makes the 555R Extreme in two flavors. One is a drag radial the other is a road course/autocross radial. Both are DOT compliant but just barely. Most people call the road course/autocross version a drag radial when it's really a competition tire.
