Its ok the Brits will never like our cars no matter how good they get... They still have a chip on their shoulders about losing us silly colonists. And maybe the Camaro is sold in the UK with less HP? At any rate thanks for making me laugh.

The LS3 is 426, while the 6.1L Hemi is 425. However, the L99 was originally rated at 395 hp so that may be where they got the 395 from.

it can handle though, about as well as a near 4000 lb car can handle. it's skid pad numbers are nothing to scoff at. it's not a 3000-3400 lb car that handles on rails, but it holds its own.

I'm guessing you haven't been to the strip yet....

The last place this car was made for is the dragstrip.

As an Hemi Orange lovin' owner of a Challenger SRT8...I couldn't agree more!

To admit, neither of the cars look comfy in the twisties. Fun, but not exactly smooth. I bought mine for the looks (first and foremost) and then once I drove one I had that same kind of shit eating grin!

Also, the tail pipes on the Challenger are not stock.

oop, wrong forum for me...later.

LOL. Tiff Needell is one of the great drivers.

The fact remains that the Camaro SS understeers and the '10 Chally handles like patio furniture.

Saying Tiff Needell Can't drive is straight up blasphemy!
For the record, Clarkson (top gear) can't hold Vicki's (fifth gear) bra nevermind Tiff's jock strap!

Yeah weight is definately an issue here, but there are heavier cars that can easily outhandle ours, so we shouldn't get too caught up in that

You make the car go where you want it. Just depends on how you set it up. I seen a dodge omni run a 11 sec run at the strip and im sure that car was never meant for the strip.
