General Challenger DiscussionThis section contains general discussion about the Dodge Challenger. If it does not fit into a more specific area, it probably belongs in here. (Dodge Challenger General Discussion)
I love researching all things Challenger on the net and reading alot of peoples comments on videos, reviews etc and it is weird how.many people say its fat and slow. I own a 2012 SRT8 and slow is not what I would use to describe it. I wouldnt say the RT was slow either. And fat? Huh? Its a freaking muscle car, not a Mazda Miata. Just something I noticed and kinda irks me.
As for a Challenger R/T or SRT8 - I would definitely NOT say they area fat OR slow. My RT can really get your attention if your not careful. Yes, there are a few other faster, more nimble rides out there but not very many of them look as good as the Challenger.
There is a fine line between "Hobby" and "Mental Illness." Some of us may have crossed the line.

fat and slow......people are retarded. Its a big car...so what? Why can't a fast car be a big car? Slow? Uhhh, im pretty sure it can lay rubber no problem, no i am positive it can. The R/T is faster than the majority of cars on the road...the SRT8 is faster than more of the majority and then supercharge it....fagetaboutit. All because it isn't the fastest of the 3 american muscle cars from the factory (might I add its by a marginal amount) doesnt mean it's slow. DO i necessarily agree with the SRT8 pricetag......not really. Do i think the R/T price tag is spot on? I think its a stellar value for an 8 cylinder and i think its great that dodge offers 2 size 8's.....the competition does not.
Point and case....they all haul ass. a car that can pretty much blow past 100 without batting an eye is a fast car....not mention is has killer looks and i find that most challenger owners buy their cars because they are just the coolest styled car on the road!

Hahaha,, well i just read a few of the fellow members posts in which i agree with regardless of belief as i know we are all here for one reason. knowledge.
95% of the cars that give me the "look" are simply in one place the rearview… Simple as that. I know that i am 20 years old with a car putting out right above 400 hp to the wheels, and looking damn good doing it (hehhe) but yeah.. Don't mean to err burst any bubbles… But yeah when i put my foot to the floor theres no word that describes the feeling that entails besides well bliss.
