good cuz the fastest i've gone was 121 so the SRT8 can help me be that record :monster:GLHS837 said:Limiter is supposed to be 165. But the SRT-4 limiter is supposed be 148, but it's a fact that there really isnt one. More power goes faster. Maybe the same for the -8, we just wont know til someone runs one on the autobahn with GPS and a camara.
Seeing as the first military owner from Germany gets his 300C SRT-8 soon, we'll know soon. Charger might be higher, might not not, no telling.
A number of us at my office have high-performance cars and we're all thinking about renting time on the track and have a little "competition".GLHS837 said:Well, realistically, where the heck are you even hitting 165
Here from Car & Driver:BlueBlurSTi said:Didn't wana re-post, dose anyone know the top speed of the SRT8 or 300c6.1?
http://www.caranddriver.com/article.asp?section_id=3&article_id=9479&page_number=1The SRT8 is a big sedan with 56 cubic feet of front passenger space and 51 in the rear. It isn't light at 4212 pounds, but at just below 10 pounds per horsepower the SRT8 will bust through 60 mph in 4.7 seconds on its way to a 13.2-second quarter-mile at 109 mph. If the SRT8 had been included in the "Executive Adrenalators" comparison [C/D, November 2004], it would have been less expensive and offered more sheetmetal and its acceleration would have been at the top of the heap. The SRT8's ungoverned top speed of 173 mph also would have placed it on top and is especially startling when you consider the block-like drag coefficient of 0.36 and the garage-door-sized frontal area of 25.8 square feet. Better yet, the SRT8 outpaces the ungoverned CTS-V by 12 mph and all AMG products (which are governed at 155 mph) by 18 mph. Academic for sure, but if you paid more for those other cars, you'd definitely want the bragging rights.
It is no claim - it is a tested fact.BlueBlurSTi said:how was it at those speeds? my car has hit 160 on the speedo but ur always around 5-10 off at those speeds, even w/o a limiter it wouldnt be able to go much over 160 in the STi becuase of the gearing. the automatic should be able to go that claimed 170 somethin in the SRT8's.
