raced one last night . stock auto car with factory 18s vs my 06 vanillla rt with high flow cats, super 40s no resos ,[email protected] cold air setup .0 to 80 challenger took me by 2 full car lenghs . these little cars really do go.ive read on their challenger forums mid 13 s all day long .i see now that its not all bs.i guess the extra hp and less weight plus better gearing really adds up. has anyone else raced one yet

Gearing makes a big difference, I'm thinking of 3:55 in my RT, that alone should take a few tenths off the quarter. Do you agree TB3767?

there's really no less weight...


2009 specs from the dodge site but i'm guessing an 06 RT is no different
charger RT - 4031
challenger RT - 4041
base curb weights with no options and a full tank of gas... add options and the weight goes up

I raced a challenger srt8 awhile back and he had me by two and a half car lengths. I dont know if he was stock, but i had my heavyweights 22's on some it would have been a little closer if i had the stockers on. Now if it was a RT i would have got em. The only difference i have seen personaly between the srt and rt as far as racing, is the take off. LAMO the srt8 got like a 3 to 4 car length lead on me from the start, i made some time up between 50 mph to 80 mph. Stock vs Stock, the chally rt should win hads down, with the gearing and added horses.

The Challenger auto has a 3.06 rear axle, so there should be no real difference there. It has to be the greater hp of the '09 5.7.

The older rt rwd's only have a 2.82 gearing...so that would be another advantage to the challenger if they have 3.06

I have an 09 RT and it is much faster than my old 06 Daytona.
