I would like to pose a question:
If you could purchase any SRT product for the same $$$ as the product One step below i.e. Challenger R/T, 300C/S, Charger R/T, Jeep Grand Cherokee... Would you? And why would you or wouldn't you?

Lol right right. Honestly in a car like the Challenger all I want or care for is the drivetrain with the engine being the most important to me. My list of importance with the Challenger is this : 392 / 6 Speed / 3.90 gears or better. If I could have had the RT with the 392 option I would have grabbed it. I just don't want leather navi and the other stuff brakes and suspension included, I like it simple with a car like this. For the extra cheddar at least for me in my case I wouldnt get an SRT unless it was nused and the depreciation already hit, ill let someone else get on that haha.
Really man I just want a 392 in a RT and thats beast on the street.

Who has ever taken a muscle car through a canyon purposely more than once because they wanted to "perform there" misses the whole point of a car like the Challenger. I understand this guy in the video is trying to critique the SRT8, but critique it in the arena it was built for, not in an arena that is ultimately unrealistic. He is a corvette owner. No wonder his assessments seem to attempt to dim the SRT8 down to a ho hum car....which it most definitely is not. The Challenger is the 240lb running back with speed, the corvette is the speedy, flashy wide receiver that wears the smaller shoulder pads. Completely nullifies his assessment when he mentions his ownership of a Corvette. I love the corvette btw, this isn't about that, I just think this guy makes an assessment in the wrong arena stepping out of little sports car and into the beefy srt8. Good topic -but I don't think that the RT is a few grand away from the srt8 in performance either....on the surface anyway.

Yeah I wasnt aware he was a Vette owner now I can see his bias it explains more about his opinions I just thought his jokes were corny so I didnt watch the last minute of the vid.

Here's another review that most of you have probably seen lol. He gives the SRT8 a fair shake and honest review:


And here's the clip of the car he had reviewed the week prior. Yeah the Supersnake is pretty wild. Not sure I'd be able to keep a live axled 750 hp car out of the ditch though:

Wonder what that would consist of....

A speedfactory might put you over that edge...closer to 10grand I believe. I admit it would be fun to try, but I wouldn't do it to mine. Kinda like where it is right now

Super Snake is wild. Dude scared himself lol, but everything that second video said about the Challenger I agree with. I think he was dead on. I know everyone else experiences other muscle (pony/whatever) car owners gawking at the Challenger. Gotta love it!
