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

What do they weigh, 300 lbs more than a Camaro? That's a fat guy in your pass seat. Power to weight ratio is close, although with your headers you will be fine unless you screw up a shift.

thats still a pretty big difference when your comparing a car with more power to one with less and more weight

This 6.1 SRT8 ? Hemi's are much much overrated.... This statement is not only based on experience running into a few, but also driving more then a few LX platform cars equipped with the 5.7. LSx is in a completely different league.

Not to burst you bubble but a 6.1 challenger with just a cai/tune runs mid 12s. I know I race him all the time and even drove the car. Those hemis like mods.

You can find published reviews of those 300c's pulling down 4.7 0-60's and 13.2 second 1/4's bone stock, from way back in 2005. They are not slow cars.
But you should still beat him. Just don't get caught napping.

Agreed, considering I slowly pulled on a g37s in my 12' r/t.

chrysler 300 C SRT (I had one) 4200 lbs curb weight, the Challenger is a few hundred pounds lighter.. the 6.1L shouldn't be much of a contest, the newer 6.4L however will be tough to beat..

lol... Maybe I should cherry pick all the " Camaro SS" videos that run 14's @ Gainesville.. I even had some lady come up to me and said " I would embarrass her" because she can't break 14.xx in her camaro>. i ask if it was a v6... She said no... "SS"
I told her it was her driving and not the car..
oh... here is my slow 6.1 @ Gainesville on a 5.0
Yes, I run high 12's low 13's in this Florida DA
No Major mods either... see sig
