I still think this is one of the funniest things ever.

I only posted this up because its a competitor to the 5th Gen. With me never driving one before and running low 8s I figured I would post the experience up especially since most of you ss owners probably will never drive one down the track.

Any new 5.0 is a good driver and great conditions away from running mid 12's bone stock.

the track key does nothing but give you a cool idle.

and you're lucky you could find second gear in that thing.

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

I was looking at the ss, challenger and the 5.0 for my new car and didn't even test drive the 5.0 mainly because it didn't have the tr6060 in it.

a friend of mine had a boss. under 3000 miles and the trans needed to be rebuilt. he just traded it off on a truck.


he let me drive it quite a bit. those boss 302's pull awesome over 6000 rpm.

Some more practIce should defiantly get you some better times. I ran 8.2 in my bone stock 13 GT. When I added radials got it down to an easy 7.9.
