392 vs Mustang 5.0 video

Just stumbled upon this highway pull video on Youtube.

Not sure I totally buy the "stock" label for the mustang considering at minimum the wheels/tires are clearly aftermarket with wider than stock rubber. Plus the Mustang had the inside lane...

What do you guys think?

The dood complaining about the weight of the Challenger is cracking me up. What did you expect in such a large comfortable car? Sat in a Mustang lately? I love them as well, but holy cow it's a two seater with fake back seat thrown in just to say it's there.

Cool videos. The turbo sound is coming from the little green car I believe. If that Mustang had a turbo it would lay waste to that Challenger.

I think the Challenger did good against a car that's literally 25% smaller.

When car shopping, it's best to decide what you really want. A fast car that's comfortable and looks great, or just a fast car period.

My buddy with a Cobra Mustang had to get a trailer to tow behind the Cobra for his track gear. I just throw mine in the trunk :)
Well, my needs just kind of suit the Challenger. I don't go to the track (be it drag or auto-x, etc) and so the weight of the car really isn't a concern. I mostly like to cruise, make some noise when I want to, maybe have a little go-fast fun every now and then, etc. I tend to take a lot of road trips - I've driven from North Carolina to Canada quite a few times since getting my 5.0. The Challenger does all of the things I personally like to do better than the Mustang. The Mustang is beautiful, but lacks the physical presence of the Challenger, both in size and appearance. While my Mustang does just fine for long trips, the Challenger seats are just flat out amazing. Basically, while the Mustang is a blast to drive flat out, I think the Challenger just has more sex/cruise appeal.
There ya have it. I've driven my Challenger for 8-10 hours at a time and feel refreshed and rested when I arrive at my destination. This is one of the most comfortable cars I've owned.

That's even with my Eibach suspension installed which firmed it up quite a bit over stock!
