6.1 never been a dead meet against mustang 5.0 we have beatin them with just a few mods with less than 390rwhp u can check my post, Now for the 392 its still early, wait for them just after the 6000 miles mark with around 420-430 rwhp it will destroy even the slightly modded once.Ford is smacking us around in every way but looks and that sucks !!
6.1 is dead meat against the 5.0 and the 392 can't move are wale to destroy the 5.0 it looks like it could be a draw with 5.0 and 392 in a straight line!
Through the twistys no comparison 5.0 dominates !!
Yes we weigh more so dodge why only 470-470 all that time and that's the best u got !!
The new ss will also beat the new 392 !
That is absolutely incorrect. My wife has a 2010 Camaro SS 6-speed. My best run with her car was [email protected] Car is bone stock and last year at the track, a couple guys with stock 5.0 Mustangs were turning 12.90's and were a little quicker. My friend bought a IE SRT8 392 6-speed. And in a few street battles up to about 80mph he took me by a car and a half and was still pulling on me. I was impressed enough to buy a 392 which I picked up yesterday. I can't comment how a 6.1 SRT8 would run against the SS, but from personal experience, I know the 392 will beat it.The new ss will also beat the new 392 !
Disapointed from the 08 -11 model because of weight which in this case causes slow 0-60 1/4 mile,handling performance all around !!
Not 2010 ss to be faster then 392 talkin the new ss 2012 !!
THAT is really what it distills down to in 1 sentence! This is the reality check that everybody should do once in a while, when you start questioning if a Challenger is a fast car or not. You can barely dip into the thing w/o the law getting on your case, and it can easily turn the driver into a red smudge on a concrete barrier if they fail to respect how fast the car is. Isn't that quite well enough to be happy with the car?Are you disappointed because the Challenger isn't fast enough or because it isn't faster than a Mustang?
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.
But the good news is we can make our cars faster but still have a comfortable car. That's what I always liked about Mopar, big, mean, classic muscle.
You can't make a Mustang or Camero as comfortable to drive as the Challenger or carry 4 in comfort.
Yep, could have and didnt. By the way, my buddy has a new manual 5.0 with custom tune, CAI and exhaust. He is putting down 417rwhp and 405rwtq with no bottle and makes well over 500 with the 75 shot. I know once he finds out I have a new 392 he will want to run me. Unfortunately he runs 12.40's @ 119 with the above mods on the STOCK TIRES without the bottle.Everyone who bought a 392 Challenger could have bought a Mustang 5.0 or a Camaro SS. I just saying...:cowtounge:
If you get CAI, LTs, exhaust, and a CRM tune then it will be a fair fight. Until then you will be bringing a knife to a gun fight. If you do make those mods and run him, make sure he pulls the bottle so he's not tempted to tickle the juice when you start walking him.Yep, could have and didnt.
