When you get your ZL1 let us know how it is!!!! Im seriously thinking of getting one if Dodge doesnt step up to the plate soon. I just like to see real track times from a REAL owner before I lay down the cash.

yup, will wait until next year to see if Dodge will or won't come out with a supercharged 392. if not, ZL1 here we come. especially with an auto. too old to shift any more.

It's just easier to put a 392 into a 09-10 stupid isn't it? easier to swap the motor than the electronics the other way around. sounds like alot of the 11'+ challenger owners are near giving up and trading in for a zl1 or gt500 if they can't get the engines to perform like they expect in the 6.4. Such a shame a company would decide to hold owners hands so tightly, no wonder folks jump ship to another marquee.

that is the bottom line. even the older hemi's do not have the same tuning support that you have in the LSx world with all of the available tuning tools. I do love the looks and the real back seats in the challenger over the camaro but I do want the option to add what ever I want and be able to tune my own car.

Hey guys, well I used to be on a forum when I was much younger and had a dodge ram rumble bee truck. I met a ton of cool people on that forum much like here and I recently popped back in to say hi. Well, an old hat on the forum asked me to line up with his new challenger since we are both in Houston this spring.... I looked at his signature and it is a 6.4 2011 Chally.

The fella said his mods are

-catback
-cai

all on factory goodyears.


I have a 2010 2SS/RS with

- 6 speed manual
- England green dyno tune
- straight pipe exhaust
- vararam "tune model" intake
- lsr short throw shifter


I agreed to line them up, as of course It's all in good fun and I have yet to run one of those MOPAR's yet.

Do you think I will get my butt handed to me? I believe he has a 6 speed as well.

I have posted a link to his dyno graph and his recent time slips from the other website, hope he doesnt mind. Doubt he does:

- http://www.rumblebee.org//files/img_3709_small_173.jpg
- http://www.rumblebee.org//files/img_3167small_699.jpg


And I have also attached my graph:




So, if it seems that on paper he would smoke me, I was planning on installing long tube headers this spring before the race...

Would this even out the playing field any?

Anything else I can do to beef up for race day?

Thanks,

Peace, Love, And . Without all the hippie crap, and what the hell, smoke em if you got em.

I posted over on the rumblebee site to see if you want to line up the week of 19 March. I will be driving to KC the weekend before to pick up either the challenger or another car to bring to Houston for the week. let me know if you have time to line them up that week. it will be one of the few weeks I am driving back and forth to KC for a while.

I do not know any of the tracks in Houston. I would prefer a 1/4 mile track.

When I bring the car down I would be happy to meet some folks at a track for a fun evening.

I believe torque managnent was killing us that night, when launching the car would take off and fall flat on it's face.

Sounds like you guys are making a small meet out of this grudge match!
I've got family in Houston, maybe I'll fly/drive just to see this go down!


Haha just kidding you both, it's sure to be a good race!
