Fewer and 'far-er' between than the CTS-V due to the outrageous premium over sticker they want (my assumption). Prior to my V purchase, I just wanted to do my due diligence and test drive one and they had the car roped off like it was one of the orginal Superbirds. Stated they wouldn't take anything less than $58,000 for it ($15,000 over the sticker on the window).

I hear it's a drivers race with the margin of error on the V's 6 spd a disadvantage. (What I've heard, not necessarily what I believe or experienced).

A friend of mine informed me that one of the SRT-8s he is currently working on dynoed at ~340 rwhp.

Interpret as you wish. :)

There's the added weight on the SRT8 also so you can't compare hp straight up.

I've always heard this is a pretty even race.

I'm well aware that there is added weight in the SRT-8. I didn't make a comparison--I just said what I was told the rear-wheel HP of one particular SRT-8 was... :)

I thought for certain that the rwhp would be a *little* higher on the SRT-8 vs. the V, as it's a 6.1 liter Hemi, rated at 425 HP. I found it interesting that it was so close to the stock V numbers. Granted, this is one SRT-8, but interesting nonetheless.

I've posted it before... I raced one, and it was a damn close race (V the length of the car)
... more of a drivers race than anything.

Hi Boys...I watch your forum cause I love your cars. Most of the SRT8s are dyno'd at 367 rwhp..

http://www.300cforums.com/forums/srt-8-general-discussion/11159-any-dyno-stock-srt8.html..

seems like the 425 rating is a bit conservative (more like 450). Over on our forum there seems to be a lot going on with mods now, SCs, Headerss, etc....

And your right...I have only seen a few Vs around and haven't had the opportunity to run with one... Don't see many srt8s either. I kind of like the "rareness" of both. Most of the boys on the forum paid msrp or close (as did I) Like your car (which I have driven and LOVED), srt8 is great bang for the buck.

Like I said, it was merely the results of one SRT-8. :) Perhaps he had a dog, or the guy misquoted me.

Well, it WOULD be if dealers weren't marking them upwards of $15k!! :cookoo: That is so disappointing to me...

Agreed (with the emphasis on "greed") I have seen several attempts, unsuccessful mind you, to sell them on e-bay with a huge markup. It seems to be the worst in Cal..

If you remember, they were also asking over MSRP when the "V" came out, which was then "lowered" to MSRP. I would bet that no SRT-8 owner paid more than list (or lower) for their car. By the way, what is MSRP for the SRT-8? I have a friend that bought a 2006 300-C with the hemi (not the SRT-8) and that listed for $42,000.

The most expensive 300C I have seen was about 39... I think the SRT ones are 10 more than that.

This is great at least we talk and don't bash each other like the Vette/Viper group. Anyone know if the power is the same for a charger?

Mine was msrp of $45800, fully loaded 2005 (one of only 252 made- -before they had kicker option and rear dvd). I thought that was very good "bang"...blutooth, in dash 6 disc CD, nav system, satellite radio, etc..

And your right, most of the guys on the forum shppoed or pressured the dealers and paid msrp or very little over.
