2015 Challenger R/T 5.7L A8 Pitch Black aka "Black Beauty"
So you start off in 2nd gear at the expense of hurting your transmission and sacrifice all the power you had in first gear?First, in first, as easily as a Challenger can roast the rears, it still has better dry traction than a FWD car with weight transfer helping it, and hurting FWD, the driver just needs to learn a bit.
Second, once in second (see what I did there?) it is all gravy, and power to weight really is all that matters.
You do realize you have the same transmission and driveshaft that the 5.7 has don't you?
Here is my best 0 ~ 60 time so far, what is yours?
