Impressive for the Charger 3.5L. It's hanging right with the Crown Vic with a V8.
A lot of departments in my area use the Charger 3.5L. The back seats are replaced with a single molded plastic unit so arrestees can't slip stuff from their pockets in the seat cracks.
In a large metropolitan area, speed is no longer an issue because of the air support and the number of units they can put to the chase. Never stops the bad guy from trying though and it makes for good TV.
OT: Jesse James of West Coast Choppers grew up in So. Cal. and has a new show. So he decided he would challenge the cops to a battle of "catch me if you can." They went out to an abandoned Air Force base outside of Victorville and the chase was on. The cops got their usual tools: cars, helicopter, spike strips, etc. Fun episode to watch.
Jesse James is a Dead Man
