Both manual trans cars? Driver's race.

Auto SRT8, he wins.

What kind of tires for each car? If he is a great driver with some DR's I think he will win. Both being on street tires he will still win if he is a great driver. Get some DR's and a good converter and you will win no matter his skill or tires.

M6 is quite a bit slower than the auto challenger.... however if he can drive then I give the edge to the 392

The "392's" performance seems to be more in question than any other performance car out there. They should be very strong.

In the video just a set of headers on that SS would make the race neck and neck. So I say you have a very good chance, and if he cant drive to good youll take him esy.

But, isn't the Op an auto L99 and an that a manual LS3? Not the best comparison.

Modded L99 for the win here. If the 392 were an auto car it would be very interesting.

I own both. Sorry camaro guys, the 392 wins. One of the biggest myths on the internet is that the Challenger 392 is slow. It's not.

I still love my Camaro though. Its not slow either.

Fully agree.

You need to see the dyno of the SRT8 first. It out performs both the L99 and LS3. I saw it taking a ZL1 like a piece of cake. We may argue that it was having a heat sock fever. But taking a GT 5.0 is not a joke either.

I saw a couple of videos with the old 6.1 taking on the SS and the new 6.4 is a monster !!

I say 392 wins.

This video shows quite the opposite. The camaro actually has a better power to weight ratio then the charger srt8. 465 hp/4400 lbs = 9.45, 425/3900= 9.15. The drivetrain loss of the auto chager is likey why the ss can pull on it on the top end.
