A win is a win, on the street I have seen some pretty fast cars lose I'm sure the challenger guy was surprised either way.

You're running 2 seconds faster then me, same axle ratio but I'm running with a 14" rolling radius.
The truck was in some good weather at Bowling Green as well, it could have been slower than that but I really dont remember that well.

Too bad Chrysler locked out the computer on the 2011s though, not much you can do with them My last driver was a 2011 Mustang GT with a 2.3 TVS, tune and drag radials (auto car). Easiest 10 second car I ever threw together:

Until they crack the code on the 2011s this challenger will stay pretty stock, it wont be as quick as the 500lb lighter mustang but I'd be happy with mid - 11s
