    So the Cadillac CTS-V is definitely faster than the Dodge Charger SRT-8

    Ran into one on the freeway....we went at it twice from a roll and both times I slowly pulled him and put about 1-2 cars on him from 65ish-110.

    Fast ass car I must say, and the front looks badass (I got a good look in the rearview) ! I don't like the rears though at all.

    Cool guy, gave a thumbs up as he was exiting. I swear this CTS-V is faster than I thought from a roll.

    That's better than I would've expected considering the posted 1/4 mile ET's I've seen for both cars. Is your car stock?

    I don't know for sure but I would gues the charger is the fastest (lightest) of all the SRT8s (300, charger, magnum)

    So the 2 door charger weighs the same as the 4 doors 300? That 300 looks bigger...maybe it's just me.

    I wonder when the challenger will come out.

    The Charger is in fact 4 doors.

    The Challenger is in Motor Trend this month. I think it is still a concept.....right?

    Oh...my bad. I thought it was 2 doors.

    I also heard GM was thinking about remaking a camaro or chevelle based on the 1970 model, or something like that.

    I think the key was "from a roll" The auto should help out in the 1/4, but from a roll the greater efficency of the stick would help. Not much maybe but maybe enough for him to get you a car length in the 1/4 and the other way around for say 65 to 110 or something like that. The same car with a high stall converter and good tires will destroy an identical manual tranny car in the 1/8 for example.

    Check this out from the Detroit Auto Show... Looks like they are going to try to take some of the Mustang's thunder for retro muscle cars...

    The Charger is also uglier than the V.
