'13 SS vs '08 Challenger SRT-8

This isnt a "who will win" thread, this is a theres going to be a race thread because, well its friday and the track is open today thats why. And my buddy has been "smack talking" since theyve announced the new camaros. This somewhat rivalry has been going on since we've known each other. His first car was a '67 challenger that he built with his dad. My firstr car was a '83 camaro that I built with my dad. All friendly of course.

The camaro - bone stock with the pump in the back taken out as the only weight reduction.

the challenger - CAI

So I know this is coming down to the driver, and I think that's where I'll have the distinct advantage. Skill wise I'd say we're about equal, but...

Me - 6' even 220lbs
Him - 6' 3" 480lbs

You say he's 480Lbs? That's not a type O? You should smoke him. The 08's stock aren't that fast.

Unfortunately not a typo. He's a good friend, and I'm worried about his health, but he still manages to stay somewhat active. And he won't listen to anyone about dropping it.

I would say drivers race, but the extra weight is carrying is going to hurt.

Thanks for posting this as an actual race . There is too much speculation about this car vs that car in my opinion.

Good Luck!

The Cars



The Drivers



We had only made the one pass cause he broke the air box for his intake in the process, and they wanted to go home and drink anyway.

Anywho, my buddy conveintly "lost" the timeslips before i got pictures, and now claims that i took them after the fact.

I ran a 13.3 i think @109 and my reaction time was horrid with a .89.. i may have waited for green...
Now he wants to wait until he gets more mods to go back
I how ever would like to break into the 12s stock. Let's see if I can do it before the itch to go faster to takes over.
