It's a gaggle of knuckleheads over there. They have a thread titled "Challenger R/T vs Camaro SS" over there. I actually posted this video earlier, and I showed them how repeated tests by EVERY neutral 3rd party shows the SS not only outperforms the R/T, it outperforms the SRT as well!!

Guys, please don't flood the challenger forum and incite any further arguments. Last thing we want is for trolls to start retaliating here. Thanks.

Very nice run bro! I get that you did not use the launch controls or TC but did you use competitive mode or just turn off everything? Sorry if I am misunderstanding I am new to the whole track lingo

Post your time slip in the fastest 1/4 mile thread (sticky). That would be the fastest stock L99 A6 time.

LS7 Camaro's would be a great thing. your average for '03-05 Z06's is alittle off, id think since they run low 12's stock they would have a high 12 second average. My buddys showroom stock '03 Z06 went 12.50's with 1200 miles on the clock with a 2.18 60ft.

I have not been banened yet, but I am sure it is coming. They start numerous Camaro threads, then the same group of guys start shouting down anyone that posts positive comments on the Camaro and anything critical of the Challenger.

I have never seen anything like it.

Congrats-- I want a New Camaro more and more.

Just have to talk the wife into take the G8 GT- (she wants SRT8 Magnum)
