It is kinda silly, isn't it? I also thought it was about what an individual liked within his budget. My R/T is fast, the factory claims it has a top speed of around 160mph, that's fast. Now, being a 4000lb car with "only" 375hp/410ft-lbs of tq it will take it much longer to get there then someones 700+hp supercharged Hellcat, but it's still fast.


I can take my "fast" R/T out anytime and put a grin on my face by the time I hit 4th gear and still only be doing 40mph.


I met a guy just yesterday driving a '15 Challenger SXT, he had done things to make it his own that I would never do, but he didn't know that. I told him how nice it was and was glad he was having fun with his "fast" car, must be, as he's already had 2 speeding tickets.


My point is that fast is relative, and not everyone, in fact, very few of us can afford a Hellcat. We should be happy that Dodge makes several levels of this beautiful car so lots of us can enjoy them.

OMG...I can't believe stuff like this exists in the world?! What kind of place sells such a thing...Dixie Wheel & Rubber Tire? Would have been perfect if the owner would have put white wall Goodyears on those wheels. Figures that the center cup is missing.

I'm a little creeped out that you memorized my CCW. Do you think of me often? What color underwear do you think I'm wearing?

My Bond Arms Century 2000 is normally loaded with 45 LC 250gr. cartridges but sometime has 3-inch Magnum .410 rifled slugs, or 3" Magnum .410 000 Buck shot....That's five 30 caliber projectiles with each pull of the trigger. Which means I can put ten 30 caliber holes in a bad guy significantly quicker than any 5+1 or 7+1 compact 9mm or .380. I can shoot twice, reload and shoot two more in 6 1/2 seconds. If someone put 20 holes in a life-size target at 7 yards with a compact semi-auto pistol, I'd like to see it.

Also has no moving parts to jam, and no slide bite.

.45 LC will poke a hole in a car windshield and angles .9mm won't penetrate.

Terrible choice of CCW? I'll take my chanced with my double-barrel hand cannon, over a semi-auto pea-shooter.

Fudd lore. Glad you read the brochure. Shame you trust your life to bad info.

Best of luck to you.

Come back when you get a "manly" car again.

Edit: I'll throw you a bone; it would be a wonderful BUG after all reasonable options were exhausted.

Back in 1985 I bought a new Honda CRX with 5 spd. transmission. Car was very light and fun to drive. (total different kind of feeling) Got 30 MPG in the city.

I was thinking it was omitted to circumvent any performance issues due to unsprung weight.
