Did you hear the narrator mention torque in "Pound Feet" ? :notallthere:

I was wondering about the weight myself. Has it really added another 120 lbs.?

Isn't that actually the correct expression for torque?
Yes, but they both are. Work (torque) is (lbs)*(ft) so either is interchangable.

So far the Magazine tests put the 6 speed at 12.9-13.0 in the 1/4 mile. I like to see somebody test the auto to see if they can duplicate the 12.4-12.5s they pulled at the track (which I hope they do). :D

I would say they should have given some of the reviews both manual and auto to test since the auto's are usually faster. But yeah, the mid twelves isn't far-fetched for the auto if the trap speed was that high (as long as the trap prep is good and your launch is good). The 0-60 would go down some as well.

However, interestingly the R/T with the STP received the same skidpad rating and marginally different figure eight rating and the R/T was able to beat it in the braking test (though I am sure the brembo's are able to take some more abuse). Guess the people that said the STP made a huge difference have the proof now to back them up :)

6 speeds are tricky d i c k s! 111-114MPH is a 12.50 all day. The comments are pretty horrible and contain zero maturity. This car is badass! Someone needs to test the auto.

Looks and sounds great!

Hopefully they will be able to get some decent numbers for it because all of the results sucked. The 392 car pulled less g's than the 2010 DY SRT8 did in the last tests and was only .2 quicker to 60 and the 1/4?

I prefer foot-pounds because its sounds like the engine "crushes" down power. Pound-feet sounds like an illness a dog catcher might get. Like Athletes Foot...
Great anology, trench foot is another fine example.
