Default got come challenger action WOOT

I was at wal-mart in seymour saw the guy. Talked to him really cool guy, this car was brand new R/T 6 six speed, I was like cool my cars a six speed to.

You wanna race sure, interstate run, we made about 4passes each one i smoked him.

The very last one though, I told him to honk his horn 3xs man it was awesome. We got down to 40 honked an took off to 110 like nothing else, I walked him by about 2 1/2 cars. I shifted to 4th but missed so i put it in 5th as he was pulling up on me an got to my door i left him agian.

Cool guy very awesome race those cars are bad, but when i told him i only paid 2500 for my car plus the repair close to 7-900, i saw a tear in his eye.

Then some mexicans pull up when we had the hoods up talked about his car, Looked at mine said is that a six cylinder i looked at him said here. awesome race. LT!s for the record baby so hyped an excited some guy want to race his cummins agianst me now details on that in about 1hr

An SRT8 will be a little faster than an R/T with the 6 spd, now why they don't have the 6spd in the Challenger SRT8 is beyond me, I expect the A5 in the 300/Charger. Good kill, sucks for him. Lets hope the extra weight (both Camaros and Challengers are around 3900 lbs) in the 2010 Camaro won't hurt the LS3 this much.

Sorry i was to hyped up, we did it on the interstae heading north towards indy at about 12am.

The first race kind of sucked, but we blew by him with no chance of coming up on his.

The 4th race i told him to honk 3 times, we were both doing 40 even. Soon as he honked that third run i dropped it into 2nd an flew away. #3rd gear still pulling away easy. I missed 4th so i went straight to 5th an we he started coming up on me I got back into the sweet spot an took off again.

Very cool guy, awesome race, we had some mexicans pull up to us after it at the wal-mart parking lot. He looked at the hemi an then mine, said to me is that a six cylinder we all started laughing at them.

They have the 6spd available now. My auto teacher just bought his SRT8 Challenger with the 6.1l and 6spd manual. Pretty sweet car, I had to go look stuff up about it lol. 425hp and 420 tq I think at 37xx pounds.
