Just throwing it out there to get us started
 
I'm just throwing this out to get this section started. Wouldn't it be great to have a SRT-10 back on the market? I doubt it will happen being gas prices the way they are and how car companies are trying to increase their average fuel mileage on their vehicles. At least they could come out with a SRT - 8. Perhaps bring out the 6.1L or even the 6.4L V8 and put in it.

By the way I saw a swwweeeettt black one the other day. Must have just been detailed because it was as shiny as could be.

Well, gas prices are inching down so maybe, we all had a fit for nothing! We will see shortly.

I don't believe the SRT-10 will ever be back and the SRT 8's may even be in jeopardy...Congress has passed a bill that was signed by the senate to regulate car manufactures to make more fuel efficient vehicles by 2010. I will look for it on the net later tonight. I have to go to a dinner party now.

I guess they are just going to have to find a way to make 400+ HP and get 30 MPG. I WISH! I guess you can hook 400 horses to it and pull it. ;)

I wish it would come back! I love all that power!! It's sad to see it go, but I like the SRT8 idea in a truck!

The SRT 8 does seem a little more practical. Better fuel ecomomy and besides who is going to drive a Ram like they would a Viper. I couldn't even drive a Viper like a Viper is suppose to be driven.

I wonder if they could do the engine dispacement with the 6.1L like they did with the 5.7L?.fuel wise.

You're referring to the MDS where it shuts off cylinders to maximize fuel economy. I don't know why not because I would think it is all in the programming. Maybe they just always want that power in the big engines.

Well even to see the SRT series go away would be heart-breaking. My dad has a 300 SRT-8 with the 6.1 hemi, and that car is an amazing piece of machinery.
