The Challenger has only had a little bit of weight gain, but the WK2 platform has ballooned by 300#! So with the added power of the 392, all of the LX platform cars have enjoyed a healthy drop in ETs, while the Jeep has fallen back by a couple of tenths.

Imagine if the 392 was dropped into the WK! Low 12s would be the norm. They could've done it for the '11 model year, but it would have embarrassed the WK2 so badly it would have been humiliating.

This is the second post I've heard about the newer Challengers being heavier that the older ones. Is it the 392 that's heavier, the new steering wheels or what? Guess I just haven't kept up with any significant changes that would make the newer cars heavier.

Certainly, the Jeep SRT8's would be heavier than the Challengers...not sure by how much...

This years Jeep srt8 is 5150 lbs. That is almost 1000 more than the Challenger SRT8.

i don't agree.

it can launch harder and probably win through the 1/8th, but the ET's are in the mid to high 13's.

they trap 100mph if they're lucky.

stock for stock, i would say it's a "driver's race".

and when i say driver's race, i mean "if the Challenger can get out of the hole without blowing up the tires".

there's no doubt in anyone's mind that the Jeep will put a couple of cars on the Challenger through the first 150 feet, but the Challenger will run it down.

we can argue all day, but it's a topic that i don't care for too much HAHA !!!

i do know for a fact that the Challenger will out trap it at the end, which means it's reeling it in, BUT, it's too close to call either way.

here's what i will say, with each car getting an optimal launch, the Challenger will lose in the 1/8th and it will be close as hell in the 1/4....

On the autocross the jeep will eat the challengers lunch all day long. Stock for stock in the 1/4 the challenger should be a bit quicker.

So in a 35 mph parking lot race the Jeep will win

The 6.1 Jeeps are very quick, I would not call them fast though. As has been stated, they can 1.79 60 foot, and that's impressive, but their trap speed through the 1/8 mile clearly shows they will get run down pretty bad by any of the other SRT8s.

You guys have to remember the wt diff in both WK1 and WK2 JEEP vs the CHALLENGER. Heres the SHIPPING wt diff in the jeeps and challengers.
6.1 WK1 JEEP 4697 LBS hp/w ratio 11.18
6.4 WK2 JEEP 5311 LBS hp/w ratio 11.30
6.4 CHALLENGER 4117 LBS hp/w ratio 8.76
Its really hard to even match the jeeps against the challengers as the wt differs so much.
