Keep in mind, the track is at a little more than 2,500ft elevation, too.

Got to love seeing Challengers at a track that is not straight.

Thanks, I agree. We may not have kept up with the track-prepped BMW M3s that were doing lap times in the mid 1:30s since we were running mid 1:50s, but I thought we did quite well all things considered. I think I surprised the modded red SRT8s.

One more video, pretty much my best time for the day. I lost a lot of time in the sweepers because I didn't want to end up overcooking my driver's front tire since I kinda needed it to get home. So with some dedicated track tires and suspension mods I should be able to lower my time by quite a bit.

It's so fun, you'll get addicted. not sure what tracks are around you down there but there's got to be something. I'll be doing this again in December. Can't wait, just hope I can get some mods done by then even if it's just tires and wheels.

Looks like you had a blast.

I'm aiming to take mine to Barber Motorsports Park in March 2013.

I LOVE ChallengerTalk.com!
