Gotta love the motor city. Cruised a bit of telegraph, woodward, southfield and the lodge. Just had a few jobs around the city and i was taking my time cruising. I played tag with a few cars just having fun as traffic was a bit much for any real racing. We have the oldest cruising roads in the world and theres something about following the river up and down Jefferson or cruising woodward that is just magic.


Anyway on to the story. I got on 94 west to get home about 11 pm. I saw a car weaving in and out of traffic looking like he was trying to catch me. Once he got close i saw it was a late model firebird. I was eager to try him out.:)

He waves me over to the haggerty exit that i know runs parallel to 94 for a few nice straight miles. He sounded LOUD! Long story short we lined up at a complete stop. I beeped three times and got off a great launch! I was a car length ahead and thought i had em!:lol: all the sudden like a shot he just hit second and passed me like i wasnt tryin!!!! Ive been to the track plenty of times and i know a faster car can catch up over a qtr. mile but ive never seen that! I suspected a shot.

We pulled over and i asked what he did to his......No Comment he says. I dont talk about whats under my hood he says:nervous s I say lets try from a roll. He says hes set up for 1/4s only and doesnt go from a roll. I just wanna try i say. Nope! Ok see ya later. He had nice gauges and slp loudmouth exhaust thats all i could gather.

On the ay home i felt pretty good beating him off the line and getting the initial lead, i cant beat nitrous and although i give him the win i feel a bit vindicated that he had to use it (if he did)

Well back on 94 i pulled up next to a white r/t I know its easy pickins (no offense) but we played tag a bit then went for a run on a roll. Left him in the dust pretty good (with a thumbs up) and took off.

Lots of fun regardless.

Maybe the guy was juicing and was out of juice and that is why he didn't want to run again?

Either way, never back down from a race if the conditions are safe.

I realised reading the post that easy pickins wasnt right at all. I know alot of you mod heads can hang with an srt and i respect that.



I think the guy was out of juice too. He hung way back after the race and would only let me get one run in. Decent guy but seemed to take it all way too serious. Nice car though

He was definitely juiced, i dont think anything else would have made such a big difference at that stage of the race. If he was supercharged, or had a bunch of mods, he would've had you since the beginning

THERE IS ALWAYS someone faster than you. The quest for the fastest charger is a complete waste of time.

It's cool that all of you can beat my v6, that's great. But seriously that's why I don't own a 50,000 dollar car that's known as "fast"

As soon as I get all big headed about it a 1986 honda hatchback or a 1994 camaro blows your doors off and you feel stupid because you know they probably didnt spend that much on their cars, AND their insurance is cheaper...(in the hondas case) and of course they feel good because their old POS cars spanked you.

Just not worth my time, effort, money, gas, insurance, tickets or stress.

My .02. I am all show, no go.

Never

Why would feel bad? They are still in a POS.

If you place your entire value on your 1/4 mile time you bought the wrong car.

That argument is nonsense

PS There is no justification other $5/gallon gas prices that would ever make me want a V6 instead of the 6.1

From your description of the run with the firebird it sounds like he had a nitrous system, and a fairly good sized one at that.
with the juice you have to kind of ease it out of the hole and only stand on the pedal once your rolling.
The juice comes on all at once, and once it kicks in and if your traction is questionable, your tires go up in smoke and its game over.

You guys can say its no arguement all day, once again I am preaching to a forum where 95% of you are here because you like to drive fast cars, and all talk about how fast your cars are. Naturally, your reactions would be one of disaproval. I am simply saying why I don't waste my time with performance mods, or buy "fast" cars. I bought the charger for its looks and comfort. Those were my buying motives.

That is NOT what you said. You made a feeble attempt to insult those who bought hemis and I laugh at that statement.

You are not a serious driver so it is not like I, or many people, consider you an authority on Chargers or fast cars.

I have had my car for 2 years and not lost once so yeah, it is fast. You want a commuter car and that is fine for you.

I like to drive.

Are you autistic? Where in my writings does it state that I don't like the hemi, or imply that it isn't fast or that I even attempted to insult those who bought hemis? I implied that it isn't fast compared to some idiot who dumped money into his 86 honda hatchback. The hemi is a nice motor, both the 5.7 and 6.1, I personally don't want to begin the quest to be fast, because honestly I don't like being beaten. I am a bad sport (Surely a comment about this is nesessary)

You have not lost a race? What relevance does that have to anything? I mean sure my post you attacked wasn't relevant to much either, but I was only stating an opinion, not attacking someone elses, directly.

For clarity, all I am saying is that there is ALWAYS someone faster than you... and sometimes it may even be a beater. I respect quick chargers. I just know too many people who have POS cars that would spank even a 6.1 with ease... which is why I personally choose not to buy/brag/boast about speed. Nothing against those of you who do. Chargers are bad @$$, if they are fast, they are even more bad @$$.

What other reason for your post? I just know too many people who have POS cars that would spank even a 6.1 with ease... a POS is a POS period. which is why I personally choose not to buy/brag/boast about speed. But you sure do like to stir the pot for those who do.. Nothing against those of you who do. Really, then why the post??? Chargers are bad @$$, if they are fast, they are even more bad @$$.nice backpedal..
