2016 SXT Plus Blacktop
I love that it sounds like a jet going by
"brick wall" when I used that expression was a RELATIVE comparison to the Corvette......... and it's still appropriate.If I can remember correctly, the trunk on the Daytona had a limiter on it's opening, while the Bird Did not. Also, the wing was in a more upright position than on the Superbird. Have owned both but that was a long time ago
No brick wall Challenger here! Have posted this before...
HOT ROD ON
Myth busted on the truck lid opening .........but the cable thing in the actual race cars is really cool. Makes sense and I'd never heard about that before.
The winged cars turned into weapons in a crash before Mopar engineers came up with a clever solution.www.roadandtrack.com

211MPH here is recorded......what isn't recorded is the HP level on the car that is doing it. It ain't stock that's for sure and it's not exactly much of a leap to say it's significantly more than was required to get a C7 to 212MPH......I won't quibble over that 1MPH......the speed is the same as the Stock Corvette.
It be cool to know how much HP it took to get this Challenger to that same speed.
These arguments are dumb.
Sorry, let me clarify, I was referring to the way they compair the cars. Not necessarily arguments, although I have seen people get heated. Most on this forum are very polite and respectful.I see no arguing among members in this thread? Also certainly nothing wrong with any of your posts. I assume the reference was to the overall argument of which car is best
I got the feeling after reading that write-up that the events that led to its publishing went something like this:Sorry, let me clarify, I was referring to the way they compair the cars.

Most of these "auto reviewers" leave out the biggest part of why most people buy cars, to drive from place to place in a city, suburb, etc. IMO, when comparing similar trim between the 3 American Muscle cars, Dodge wins the DD segment, and the best style.
Reader: “Hey, Mr. Writer Man, what about including a ‘vette in your comparison article?”Most of the writers aren't yet old enough to have a vette
I would say that the Challenger is a muscle car and the Mustang and Camaro are sports car, so the Challenger is not in the same catagory as the other 2, but the Vette is a sports car, supercharger or not.My guess would be the Corvette is not considered to be in the same category as those 3. Although the category demarcation line is blurred by the addition of the super chargers on them, so that realistically puts them in the same category I would argue. But ultimately I didn’t write the article, so what I think matters not.
