Oh-oh. Another SRT-8 thread. I can hear the lurkers and poseurs marching our way. Get the kitties and bunnies ready!
Its all down hill from here.
I saw this and did not want to stir the nest. Got to sea level racing and cool tempatures. Quite impressive none the less.
I love "stock" term when the track looks rented and prepped solely for him.
oh yeah, well my '92 Sedan deville runs a 9.8 in the quarter mile, even while its pissing coolant everywhere!!!!!
Yeah but notice it was a 'V' owner who posted it.Originally Posted by crowan
I just looked at several tests, they all ranged from 13.3- 14.1. Still fast but not close to a 12.5.
That's amazing. All the car magazines were unable to duplicate that run and posted 13.1-13.3 as most SRT-8 owners have posted. Same as the V's running 13.1-13.3's. I smell a rat or at least a race prepped car. Somebody's not giving us the whole story here.
I just found a test of 2006 CTS v on Road Test TV, 0-60= 4.6, 1/4 mile 12.98! Enough said for that argument, most tests were comparing the 2005 V, same horsepower on paper, but not as quick in practice. The extra torque makes the difference for the '06.
I would rather get the charger srt8.
Road test TV who? What? Where? When? Please post a link.Originally Posted by Randy_W
Yeah, but who gives a damn.... really?
its old tech man, stupid Hemi with pushrods... they are SOOOO far behind Honda... gosh.. does that boat anchor even have V-TEC?!? Look, until makes more HP then torque and has a 9,000RPM redline, and DOHC, and V-tec, and made by Honda... I don't want to hear about it.
ah damn... I got caught up into the "old tech" thing... sorry....
THATS FREAKIN SWEET!
gosh... full size luxury car crankin' out those numbers....damn... I don't care what people say about the new Hemi, its freakin sweet! Long live the pushrod!

I know that guy through the 300C forums and the SRTforums. The guy is a nice guy and him and some people I believe rented out Atco for the day. But the guy isn't a BS'er when it comes to lying about what he has done to hs cars. Katshot and I were at E-Town and say a 300C SRT-8 run a 12.9 and a Charger SRT-8 run a 12.8. He might have a factory freak but either way he still ran a 12.5 and I don't see any of the V boys doing that
