Agreed from a marketing standpoint wouldn't it be worth the extra $400 in better rubber and wheels to market a 10 second car? They spent thousands in upgrading the entire powertrain just to skimp out...

Then they screw it up by putting 275's on the rear tires, just like they put 245's on the 392's. They know better because they put 295's x 4 on the jeeps. 707 hp needs 355's like the viper, then it...

Id say drivers race in the 1/4, you all they way from a roll. If you had a tune you would have it both ways.

Was it 6.1 or 6.4? The 6.1=drivers race. The fastest stock time 6.1 is 12.6 quarter mile, SS is 12.5 (LS3) 12.7 (L99), 12.2 for 6.4 Hemi. Some basic bolt on and tires for the SS should even it out.

Was it a ZL1 or a "ZL1". I see one on base with ZL1 fascia and badges, but standard hood and GM ground effects, no quad tip exhaust.

I'm sure he has me beat. I would be as good at his profession as he would be mine. Just In my experience I go a gear higher is situations where I would spin excessively.

I would think if he was a gear higher he could get more throttle without wheel spin. However I never raced at a autocross so I could be mistaken.

He definitely wasn't pushing it as hard as he could. Should have shifted in higher gears in the corners to prevent wheel spin.

Whoever would supercharge a LfX would be silly to not just not get a nicely loaded 1le for the money and would take an RT in the straights and curves with a full warranty.

With drivers being equal the RT will win. My RT felt like my L99 rather than my V6. Many r/t's have hit 13.2 in the 1/4 stock, the v6 Camaro not so much. Top end on the hemi's are no joke either. Now...

I don't see how the charger/challenger has a weak spread compared to the Camaro. Beside the Camaro's 6th gear It seems pretty even to me.

So you nearly have to put the value of the car into mod expenses to match the power of a stock ss? I'm sure a turbo and rebuilt drive train is a great value.
