I'd agree. Even if stock-stock, the 392 held its ground just fine and basically broke even against a smaller car. If that 5.0 was even lightly modded, more kudos to the 392!given the fact that our car weighs a hell of a lot more than the 'stang I'd say the 392 gave them all they can handle.
Your response is more emotional than reasonable. The 5.0 is a lightweight, substantial advantage (nearly 600lbs) - no excuse, just physics. The 5.0 guys would give GT500s a run for their money as well. Those videos prove one thing, the 392 is a powerhouse to be able to move a 4200lb car door-to-door with a 5.0. Do not allow your feelings to cloud the facts - the 392 is a huge car and can beat a 5.0! The Challenger would be an 11 second car if it wieghed merely 3650lbs.That's a joke what a big let down for dodge fans like myself that is how we should be with the Shelby gt 500 !!!
NOT IMPRESSED !!!!!
I don't know if you were around in the '60's but Chrysler always had heavier cars. Maybe the Viper aside , of course but that's the way it is. The good thing is you can always make your car faster, but never can change it's looks.Weight is the big issue and that is due to dodge . First the wale of a charger srt that dodge made into a four door then years later make a two door chally that weighs just as much ? Go figure ! Then dodge adds more weight to the new charger and chally yes Im Very dissapointed ! And I could go on starting with the five speed auto, should already be retired dodge droped the ball !
