What I do once in a blue while is one foot on the brake and the other on the gas lightly enough to bring up the RPM's a few hundred this will keep torque management off your handle and it gives you a better reaction time.
I was just being a little sarcastic, I would hope a car that weighs 1000lbs less with the same engine would run better. While the Challengers arent the fastest of the newest breed of ponycars an R/T will run mid/high 13s in decent air.

I ran my 2010 CC 20" tire 3.55 Ram once for the heck of it when the car I towed to the track broke, 15.20 if I remember

Of course I'm not saying the OP didnt beat one. But most likely the kid wasn't racing, it was a V6, or it was a manual and he couldn't shift.
