    Vs Challenger

    Has anyone else ran aganst a 09 Challenger SRT-8 and if so what was the out come? In my 02 wrx I went up against one last night that was a very sweet looking ride and had exhaust for sure dont know what else. On the city streets he beat me off the line but then I caught up very quickly and beat him by a car lenght. So he wanted to try it again on the highway and it was even worse for him . But it was a great looking car cutom paint and wheels but nothing like subie power.

    Sure it wasnt a RT or possible a badged up V6.


    I do not see a 16G pulling on 400+ RWD horsepower on a top end race.

    it might hae been but that would have been a ton of work to go through for the hood and all the brand new badges I should have taken a picture sweet 2 tone paint job and had all the mod company names i think painted on it on the side panels. None the less it was fun lol


    The question I asked though is has anyone else went up against one?

    I didn't go up against one, but there was one at the drag strip. They only let it race against a new Camero SS. Both of them, the best they could get was 13.8. My wagon ran a 13.7

    If he beat you off the line, you don't know how to launch.
    I work on vehicles that make 650hp and 2400ft/lbs.

    the SRT8 sprinted to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds and ran through the quarter-mile in 13.8 seconds. That's certainly quick, but still oddly slower than the times we got with an automatic Challenger SRT8 we previously tested (zero to 60 in 5.1 seconds, quarter-mile in 13.2).

    2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Test Drive on Edmunds.com

    The SRT8's handling is downright impressive for a 4,140-pound bruiser

    Not very quick for a top end race car against a 300+ hp WRX.

    Why would they only let it race up against a Comero SS?
