I've owned 2 SRT-8 challengers and they both were amazing. I got a ton of compliments about them. My 09 ATX SRT ran 12.9 in the 1/4 mile. It was a strong car. My 10 MTX SRT ran 13.1. I've beat camaros and mustangs and a lot of the 4 bangers. I've lost to a lot as well, but that's life.

The Challenger is a great car to cruise in and I could drive it for 10-12 hours and not get uncomfortable on my cross country trips. The thing is huge and weighs around 4000lbs (really only downside). These are the cars to buy if you want a car that can do it all. It's got performance, comfort, room to actually fit adults in the back seat, a giant truck, kicker sounds system with 13 speakers, and a pretty decent aftermarket. For 10 grand I could get her fat ass up to 800hp reliably - not too shabby.

The camaros and mustangs I've driven just can't compete with it except for performance.

I think that kills off Dodge since Robby Gordon gets his engines from Penske...

Unless they can "import more from Detroit", I doubt Dodge will be represented. Still not sure how Toyota became such a hit in NASCAR...

Put Kyle in a washing machine with wheels and he will still win races. The point is he races well for Toyota, Toyota looks better.


That Chrysler TD looks like a terrible chop of a Dart picture. I don't see this thing happening. But if it did.....coupe Dart!

Very cool looking and really resembles the street version but I wonder if the grille is recessed like the production vehicle or just a decal? I would think that actual crosshairs would cause drag...

EDIT to use recessed instead of reset (what was I thinking when I wrote the post? :tardbang:).

Looks recessed to me. I'm 1000% sure drag was a concern when they designed it. Maybe it was not significant enough to make a difference. Or just the fact that drag is only a big concern when they race not in the pack. I'm all for STOCK car racing, though. No more "car of tomorrow" cookie cutter look. :thumbup:

Once again, Fiat takes a leftover Daimler product and waves a magic wand to give it the pizazz it should have had in the first place. Simply amazing and props to Fiat. :thumbup:

I'm looking forward to viewing it once CBS puts it on their website (they just have a tease about it at present).
