Hello everyone,
Happy Father's day! It was a happy one for me, got to go to the Drag Strip and pull my best time. Full weight, bone stock with just a Hellcat air filter in the stock box. I didn't even do the Lower yet.

I ran 6 times and all my passes where Slowest of 12.1 and fastest 11.9 Which is awesome. D/A was like 735 and went up to 1255 today. But the temperature was between 64-73 which was nice. The only bad thing about today was the wind. Everyone was complaining about slower MPH which I was also don't. I pulled 113 all day today. One pass was a 112. I usually go 113-114.9 so basically my best trap speed was 115 last time, not this time. That Run was a 12.0 back when Rocksteady and I was down last.

Anyway Since Rocksteady sold his Charger, He never got to make that pass. Shame as I really got the launch down with the Nexen Drag Radials which I usually spin the hell out of. Today I was able to pull a 1.7 60ft so that was good. I usually pull a 1.8

Here is the video and time slip, Check it out.

Congratulations! I knew choosing the Nexens, in the stock size, was not going to be the easy way into the 11s, but I liked the idea of trying to get there. I knew it could be done, now there's proof. Nice job.

Yeah, I'm sure there's less obscenities hanging over the booth where you pick up the timeslips from me just missing the 11.99 goal over and over and over.
You where right there. I think with a few more passes, you would also have gotten it. We where perfecting the launch with those Nexen Tires and I got it down now where I can pull 11.9-12.0-12.1 every pass. I didn't very from those numbers except one pass I screwed up. I had to turn my car off in the wet box as the guy in front of me on a bike broke something came off his bike on the track and they had to sweep the track to make sure nothing else was left there.
I turned my car off while we waited and when I started it back up, I left it in ECO mode which was a HUGE mistake. I t started out in 2nd gear and ran my personal slowest ET in a 12.6 @ 111mph. When I was going down the track even right from the launch, I knew something was wrong. I almost lifted as I felt I wasn't making power and my shift points where lazy and slow.
When your in ECO mode , it actually says " AUTO MODE" so you would think at WOT it would go to at least Sports Mode or Track mode setting while under those conditions, It does not.

I use Track mode.
Stock tune and car. The only mod is the air filter. It's a drop in Hellcat filter. It probably does nothing as it's in the stock air box.
The Challenger 1320 comes with Nexen Drag Radials. I use the same exact tires in a 275/40R20 size. They are called

You can spin them even after a good warm burn out. Our Chargers do not have as good as a suspension as the 1320 does. They are basically a baby Demon. I have seen a couple wife and husband pull low 11's on these tires at Atco Dragway a few years ago when I was there racing my Durango. It's actually on youtube. This is what took me to these tires as I watch them consistent run low 11's. I figured they would work great on the Charger and you can use your stock size wheels.

I think the Nexen tires are a good starter tire for a stock R/T and Scat pack but on the Scat pack you will have to perfect your launch. I'd love to bolt them on a Charger R/T and see how well they do. I have a co worker who has a Stock R/T Charger 2016 model year and I want to let him borrow them and see what his car will do.

The track was fully prepped and there was not a lot of people racing on Fathers day the day I was there last. I made 6 runs and could easily made more. The track as awesome as I didn't spin. I also have basically perfected my launch on these tires and I was able to consistently pull 1.7 60 ft times .
It was a shame the wind was heavy as everyone was complaining about MPH as the wind was slowing everyone down buy 1-4 mph or so. I noticed this as well as my MPH stayed under 115 which is my best MPH but that run was a 12.0. That run was another time there not this time.

The Charger Scat Pack is a hell of a car and a stock car naturally aspirated running into the high 11's to me is very impressive. I probably could hit a 11.8 or 11.9 with a better tire and rim combo. But I have these and I figured why not get the use out of them and when they are worn out, I will move to a 17-18 inch wheel with a Mickey Thompson ET street 305/45 size drag radial. Just about every hellcat and Scat pack where running those combos and no one has any issues getting out of the hole. So if a Hell cat and pull 10 second runs on that tire and wheel combo, I can't imgaine the Charger having any issues with them

I have Widebody with bigger tires and different suspension.

Ill have to poke around what stock Widebody 392 owners are pulling. I’ve seen recommendations to use Track mode for Engine/Trannie and Sport mode on the Suspension for a better launch.

I think I’ve seen the 1320 guy your talking about. I’d like to get a Challenger some day.

Here is the video. If you keep whatching it, you will see me pull a 13.8 @ 99mph in my stock Durango R/T with just a CAI system from K&N.
