Assuming there is no driver mod needed, the Charger will beat the V6 and lose to the SS.

V6 Camaro loses to Charger R/T. (Even with minor mods to the V6).
Charger R/T loses to Camaro SS (as long as the Camaro driver gets an acceptable launch).

Like others have said V6 Camaro loses, V8 Camaro wins although the distance between the awd Charger and the V6 Camaro probably won't be very much.

Many have ran low 13's in the chrger r/t. Much faster than the v6 Camaro, very close to L99 performace. The LS3 will take it most of the time. Ive owned all four in the past few years.

An AWD R/T is still a mid/high 13 second car, definatly has the advantage and really not much a driver can do to screw it up.

Low 13's ?? Haha, that's funny lol. Maybe in Atlantis.

There was a V6 Camaro that was running 14.4-14.7 @ 97-99 mph at the track this weekened. There were also 2 new body style R/T Chargers both running 13.8-14.2(with 2.0-2.2 60 foots nontheless), but neither could crack 100 mph trap over combined 10-15 runs, the both trapped 99 consistently.

Well if the V6 Camaro doesn't win in the racing department, it DEFINITELY wins in the looks department.

Haven't you stated multiple times that is a slow track? And yes, they have run low 13s bone stock.

How is low 13s funny? You witnessed high 13's, what makes you think a good driver and good weather wont do low 13's? Go on the charger forums ive seen some 13.3 runs, there may be better times but im not their forum often. And remember the new 5.7 hemi is very underrated. Some put down ls3 numbers on the dyno. Here's an article where it put down 360 hp/ 393 tq on the dyno: http://www.edmunds.com/car-reviews/t...no-tested.html

or

http://www.autoblog.com/2011/03/23/2...hits-the-dyno/

Thats well over 400 crank hp.

You really shouldnt quote track times from Thunder Valley if thats what you are doing. That track is NOT a good representation of what a car can run. If anyone knows this its me.

I'm pretty positive I saw your Camaro there Sunday. Thunder valley is good track but the air sucks. My friend was there in his new 2013 5.0 auto sunday with 3.31s and ran 12.9 @ 109.3 and 2.0 60 foot stock(well axle back). Later the day cross wind picked up and DA went to near 2000, so his time and trap dropped to 13.2-13.4 @ 107ish mph.

My friends SRT8 Charger did 13.2 @ 108 there on motor and 12.3 @ 118 on 100 shot.

It's good track you just need to be there when the DA is below 1000. Don't come there at 3 pm when there's crosswind and DA is near 2k or you will get crap times lol.

My friends intake/headers/full exhaust but untuned L99 ran 13.4 @ 106 but he is on heavy 22 inch wheels and left traction control on sport mode or something.
Here's one of his slower runs though.

My v6 accord ran 13.9-14.2 @ 101-102 with 2.4+ 60 foot. I ran a challenger rt twice and he ran 14.1 @ 102 and 14.0 @ 100 with 2.2 60 foot, he had intake and exhaust. There were two more that day that struggled to get 13.9 even with a better 60 foot then me. If they run low 13s at a fantasy track in houston or Atco then so do v6 accords. RT challengers are turds, I have driven them and raced more then a few.

Here's one of them versus my friends I/e/4.77 gears S2000

Sorry about bench racing :(

Maybe youre confusing the Challenger and the Charger? Challenger are pulling better times than that. If not, it needs the driver mod.

*cough*bullcrap*cough* I am sorry, they are capable of low 13s AND you always your track gives extremely slow times (at least when it suits you and is supposed to prove your cars are quicker than they are). Make up your mind...........
