Dear all
As the title said, my days with my Challenger are coming to an end.
I own a scatpack 16.
And just to be clear. I LOVE IT.
It is my baby. We growed up together. (Mechanical speaking) and After 2 years of deep learning( thanks especially to some of you) I can say " I know my car" .

But,
I love road course. I felt in love slowly in the last year. And this passion( an expensive one) put me in the condition to decide to switch car to somenthing that could be a better compromise between WE driving(with family,so 4 seats) and performance on the track.

I know somebody has dedicated a challenger to road courses tracks, but I believe a 4400 pounds car doesn't born for this. And the changes requested are too many.


I will sell my Challenger next month.

I do have many things that I would like to sell separetely.

1. 4 New (with stickers) 245x40x20 goodyear supercar F1 max perf. Tires
2. 4 ,50miles firestone indy500 tires. Same size
3. 4. Nitto Ns05 275x35x20 (60%left )
4. Brake pads ( Carbotech xp 10front xp8 back with 4000miles. )
5. New Brembo pads never used
6. 2 NEW front rotors (FROZENROTORS)
7. air intake AIRAID(oil free) with cleaning kit

If anyone is interested

I'm in bayarea ,California.

I want to thank all of you for the great support and your big knowledge especially A GUY, and WASP

Ciao,
Alex

so..what are you getting? Camaro SS 1LE?
I was thinking that.
I drove it. And the seats are very uncomfortable. But very nice car. (And my wife didn't like it ...:) )
So after spent days on trying my dream (z06 found one for 68k+tax with 2k miles but still high.)

I will take a mustang gt with perf pack and 800hp. Lebanon ford. They rebate a lot. And for that price you can't find a 800hp car.

I hope it works :)

Probably. I tried the new gt without the supercharger and honestly was a good ride. 10speed auto seems a good choice. Will see :)

You don't need 800HP, you need a car with the chassis and brakes that can handle roadracing. You need a Grand Sport.
I was looking fpr that too. Still out of budget. And only 2 seats :( great car tho.

This, if you're going to switch from a Challenger, don't get another boat, lol.

I'd stick with the Challenger and maybe look into wider wheels/bigger spoiler?

Mustang with perf package is good car for track. Only think I need will be a bigger splitter and 305 tires all around. (Can't with challenger) . brakes are 6 pistons brembo. Already strut brace and chassis tuned. People says With the bigger tires it is close to shelby350..
I don't know. We will see.
Worst case, I'll change in 3 years again :)
And btw
Also it is 3700 lbs vs 4400 lbs of my challenger.

Corvette got only 2 seats. And it is a game changer for the family :(

Have you ever sat in the back of a mustang? The seats may as well be nonexistent. If you're over 5' tall, your neck isn't going to fit.
