I think the awd gets off the line better but the rwd wins

AWD will get off the line faster, but more then likely the RWD will win.

more drivetrain loss of power. let alone the more weight. Awd will kill off the line and lose a little top end like everyone is saying

I too have the Black AWD R/T and she gets off the line pretty damn quick.
you're right, mine does too. i've even been able to make my tires do more than just chirp on the pavement and that was just by stomping on the gas **esp shut-off of course. :smoke:

(AWD) is quicker of the line, but (RWD) will hawk it down an win. :yes:

I'd say because the awd has more drive train loss, and it weighs more, it probably runs at least a tenth or two slower in the 1/4.

i don't know if the charger rt AWD is any different from the 300c awd but the RWD IS NOT HAWKING or RUNNING anything down if it gets behind, MAYBE IN 120s the AWD has better gearing than the RWD and im not saying the AWD is faster but from experience I would say they are pretty even.

I had a little run in with an RT RWD last year he had tenn tags( wonder if he is on here) on 29 North Greensboro,NC and from about 75 to 120 i had 2 passengers and it was just him. We evened up and hit it and the closest he got was my back door at about 120 when i hit the brakes and he flew by i figured i got a better jump because i dwnshifted to 3rd and punched it and he prolly was in drive.

Their is no way a AWD HEMI (stock) will run quicker in a 1/4 mile
vs. the RWD HEMI (stock).
The AWD HEMI are made with more drive train that = less horsepower. Plus all that AWD equipment has to put some extra lbs some where??

just my 2 cents and no offense, but i wouldn't say no way:dead: from what i've read and heard, awd is down right killer in the 0-60 and 1/4.:knockout: on the plus side, we all have a charger so who cares:lol:
