Maybe he just had a loud CAI? Or poorly tuned turbo and never had enough time to build boost to pass you.

They are mid to high 13 sec cars, SS bolt on LS3 is a solid mid 12s car from a roll, if he wasn't making a ton of boost this win does make sense. I doubt a basic kit would drop him more than a second.

With an auto they are capable of low 13s (best i have heard is 13.1 bone stock), bolt-ons alone can get them well into the 12s. Seriously doubt it was a turbocharged R/T, more than likely bolt-ons/tune and you were hearing a loud CAI.

But ignoring all of that, a turbo RT Challenger isn't gonna be all that fast... 12's if its lucky. That's if.

Yes but OP has an LS3, different animal. More BHP, less drive train loss.

What I'm saying is, is that from trap speed you can estimate a 1/4 time, but that doesn't mean the car will run that time. The only thing holding most cars back from running their fastest 1/4 time is the 60', after that most people can shift fast enough to take care of the rest.
So even though a SS LS3 will likely run low 13s on avg (stock), from a roll the 60' doesn't really matter, trap speed does. So from a roll, considering trap speed specifically, you would count the SS as a 12 sec car.

Does that make sense?

Yeah that makes more sense haha I get what you're saying.
They really should be a 12 second car period though lol

Most lower hp cars will beat big hp cars on the street from a dig if its a short race. I know I can't launch mine at all from a dig without DR's. I spin from 1st through 3rd lol even when feathering. I can't even go WOT from a 60roll with out fish tailing...

Hero runs, so many more L99 Camaros on the road means more hero runs for the Camaro, but the vast majority are running mid 13s and a lot of cases, worse.

True, for some reason i was thinking it was an L99, also that short of race, even if it was a turbo, probably didn't build up to full boost, it could have also been a manual CHallenger, who knows. Also turbocharged cars seem to do better at rolls than from a stop if they can build the boost (Supra anyone?) Turbo R/Ts are rare, nearly nonexistant and I can guarantee the ones that have done have cars capable of more than mid 12s (again bolt-on cars can do that). Heck, it may have been a stock car with a whiney rear differential

I'm assuming it's a 5.7 Challenger. In that case, they only make mid 400's whp at best when boosted. That's not 11 second power level, especially in that heavy tank. I'm not surprised the SS won even if the challenger was turbo.
