    Well, I happened to witness a SRT-8 Charger do a 12.8sec 1/4 mile at Englishtown, NJ and it was bone stock. Even had the OEM air filter still in place. BTW, a 300C SRT-8 did a 12.9 that same day bone stock. I've never seen a CTS-V at the track. The day I saw the MOPARs running, I was actually there to meet up with a bunch of CTS-V guys but they never showed up. One guy did but he left without ever running. But I can't recall anyone ever getting into the 12's with a stock CTS-V.

    they hook up without hooping on the start, If our car was easier to get going out of the whole i think we could get those times.

    There are many 300's and Chargers in the 12's bone stock. I still haven't seen any V's in the 12's and i do not think my car had a 12 in it. Cars are too close for me to tell by an ass dyno, and it is hard to tell the difference with an ass dyno between an auto and a stick, but I would not be shocked if on a good day my 300 pulled some high 12's.

    This race was FROM A ROLL! I'm sure the SRT's better hooking ability will spank the V's "launch". Look at the MPH of the V's, we definitely have the power to get into the 12's, just not the suspension. Slap a 9" and some stickies under my V...I'll run 12's all day long.


    Just out of curiosity, how many lateral G's do the SRT's pull bone stock?

    If you go to the track with a bone stock v....and I mean BONE stock and just replace the tires with slicks you WILL NOT get 12s even if the diff holds up, period.

    If you went to E-town the same nite the 300C ran a 12.9 and had drag radials on, and that's it, you'd better run a 12 in the V (assuming no wheel hop).....

    YAAAAAAY! Another great kill! That's another beast I don't have to worry about. Time to go hunt them down from a roll.

    I tell ya. I look at the concept Camaro and really like it. Then I look at it again and it look like shat.

    Nothing like the V. When I saw it at the auto show I wet myself.

    I read about the V in C&D in August of '03 and me likey! I start thinking about what I'd need to do to get one for the summer of '04. When I saw it at the local show, I stared in wonder at the shiny, black beast. That's when it was go time for me. I hadn't felt that way about a car since seeing the new M5 in '00.

    I'd love to have a Challenger as well. Something tells me this car is going to be a hit. It's going to be relatively cheap considering the amount of performance your going to get, Hemi 425hp, coupe, Brembo's, Carbon fiber hood, Pistol Grip, and a beautiful design, IMO. I'd be inline to get one if my V is paid off by then. On the other hand, it would be fun to wait for limited production of Challenger to come out later on, say a "Six-Pack".

    The Challenger concept is sweet looking. But, I wouldn't put it past Chrysler on doing something to f**k it up before they release it... The concept pics of the Charger were sweet, but it looks like ass if you ask me.

    I think I'm going to sign the wife up for one of these when they come out:

    Putting a 9" means no more IRS..which means no more wheelhop and with stickies(slicks) I can launch from 5k+ and actually hook up...and yes...I WOULD get 12's easy, the trap speeds of stock Vs being close to 109 shows the power is there. With bone stock V's already running low 13's I don't see how you can say 12's are impossible.
