I do. I love to participate in local events. I had a 2010 R/T 5.7L that I autocrossed. It had the base (Not Super Track Pack) suspension, and it had some pretty noticeable body roll. It was hard on front tires unless I aired them up quite a bit, and it still had a tendency to push. To be fair, I used my summer street tires instead of sticky dedicated autoX tires, but I think more grip would have only made the suspension limitations more noticeable. I did change to Bilstein shocks with SRT springs, along with Mopar sway bars. I regret that I never got to take it to autoX with the upgrades, but the handling difference was noticeable even on the street.
I traded that car in for my 2016 R/T Scat Pack soon after. I have now gotten some experience with this car in the same kind of events, and it is actually really good from the factory. It is definitely more handling focused than my '10 was, which I love. I've actually not felt the need to make any handling upgrades yet, and doing so might change how my car is classed. I might one day, perhaps as factory parts start to wear out.
Unfortunately my experience in the competitor cars is limited. I have not had a chance to drive a 6th gen Camaro yet. I have driven my friend's 2015 Mustang GT (Non performance pack) pretty hard. The platform does feel a bit more nimble, but that car seems to not be set up for hard cornering. I prefer how my Challenger handles.
