Enjoyed the heck out of that video. Nice to finally hear someone from SRT suggest some settings.

Looks like getting into the 10 second club isn't going to be that easy.

When they switched to the DRs, did they jack up under the diff?

That was a pretty neat video!

It's interesting that they officially acknowledge the wheel hop behavior (on the automatic, at that), now.

Also, it seems (as a "drag-radial") the NT555 is really only a tick better than the street P-zero's? I'm not really saying the NT555 are not good, rather the Pirelli's are "that" good, maybe?

09 Challenger R/T automatic...4 tires, stick-on convex mirror, seats

I may not use the full 370 hp that often, but bolting out of the gate with a ready 170 hp and the roar of a v8 definitely puts a smile on my face day after day, mile after mile. It's not such a big number, rather how soon that number emerges.

v8 is #winning
v8 is America
v8 4ever...

I noticed that too but I will guess that he used the crossmember just behind it. Jim also said the car had a ZF rear end so that clears that up too.

Even with the Nitto its not as fullproof as you would think. They need to add that 4 wheel drive!
