I did get to the strip with my R/T but it was a horrible day/evening for racing...90+ degree heat with high humidity and terrible barometric pressure. The DA was near 3000. So my best run was a...

I'd never say "every time". Yes, the auto will be more consistant but all of the planets can and do align for the manual drivers once in a while.

However, if I were a betting man, I'd probably...

Ok, so you fooled him and let him believe your car was stock. Magazines typically only compare stock prepared (not saying factory ringers don't get used once in a while) so in stock form, the...

I wouldn't be surprised if thery were under rated a tad for the whole SRT comparison but a different intake on the trucks could mean big difference in HP between the Rams and our Challengers.

On the Mustang, they are not holes, just dimples. But I'm just being nitpicky.

There was a hide-away plate that you could manually flip forwarad and slide under the car for the S197 Mustangs but...

MoMopar,

From a roll, I'd put my money on the Challenger in a lot of cases. The R/T really scoots from a roll.

I toyed with two easy ones earlier this week. I had passed a Honda and a Scion...

One word, traction (or three words, lack-of-traction). More HP and lower gears means most will have a harder time with wheelspin, effectively making 1/4 times worse.

I still have my puny 3 valve 4.6L Mustang GT (2006). I still feel the stock Mustang (2005 through 2009) is quicker than my stock R/T but I won't know for sure until I run my R/T at the local 1320...

RE: Are all Challengers garbage??

Good point! The Challenger is based heavily on the Charger/300 platform from chassis to drive train so most of the bugs should have been worked out a while ago. A lot of the smaller components are...

RE: Not sure what to do

You've got the handling thing dead-on there Axel. The Challenger R/T definitely handles turns and rough roads better than a stock 2005-2009 Mustang GT. I have not driven a Mustang Bullitt but I...
