Challenger V8 RT vs Camaro V6 very close #s

based on what car and driver and edmumds insideline the V6 camaro will have a very close 1/4 mile times with the challenger v8 rt
2010 Challenger RT 0-60-mph run 5.9 seconds, 14.1 seconds at 100.8 mph
2010 Camaro V6. 0-60-mph run 6.1 seconds, 14.2 sec. quarters.

old RT with 340 hp and crappy auto trans did it in 5.5 -5.6.
There is absolutely no way the new one with 375 hp and 400 tq with the same weight will do it in 5.9sec.
Look for it to do 0-60 in 5.2-5.3
so it is close but not really more than the camaro nose on the challengers tailight.

Send a message via AIM to Mr. Wyndham
Still...that's enough to make me smile.

Hey! It might make the RT driver flabbergasted and fustrated enough that he makes a mistake, which would allow the Camaro driver to pass!

(Remember: all in good fun!)

Need numbers with and without traction control. Both should have override buttons.

I'm starting to consider supercharging an LT instead of going for the SS.

And that's why we have an SS. That puts the challenger in position to barely make out the camaro's tail lights.
