I was there that night, those trucks are very closely matched. The comments about traction I have some input on, our track is very well prepped and with a anti spin rear almost any truck can hook. I can hook all night long on my stock badyears and thats with a cam, long tube headers, and 2800 stall, its just figuring out how to get your truck to launch. I have cut a 2.0 60' and run 13.9's in 2wd on stock tires, so I'm sure I could get a 392 8spd to hook, and I would love to race one. I might try and make the 27th, maybe take the time to pull the exhaust and prep the truck for a shot at another 13.xx pass now that I have my wideband hooked up.

The whole point of this test for me was too see wether or not I had a dog of a truck compared to my 09 CC sport with 5 spd and 3:55's that i traded for my 2013
Thanks too Kman , I was able too see first hand and in the real world just how my new truck stacked up against something very similar to my old one
That's all

Keith, the charger is finally done for the year lol and is on the road
Going to bring it to Mopar day at Cayuga next wknd

As for my opinions on the 2013 drivetrain I currently have over my previous 09.
There is NO comparison! The new drivetrain is light years from what I had.
I have 20,000kms so far and have towed a total of 971kms with it.
This truck is far more refined and really a pleasure to drive. I still average 900kms per tank, run LOW 15's and have an interior space comparable to a luxury car.
And thanks too Keith I don't have a bitter taste in my mouth thinking its a dog compared to my 09

BTW, they have UPPED the tow rating on 2014's with 3:21's too 8000lbs from the 6550lbs mine is rated at

Hey Chris I don't think I'll be there with the Dart on Mopar day but I might just drive down to spectate, if so I'll see you there.

Zach,
I'll be there if the weather cooperates so I can give you a hand to prep your truck if you want.
It would be nice to see you get into the 13's.

Thanks Keith, it will get in the 13's as long as the DA isn't crazy, I just want to beat my best of 13.81 this fall. I need to go do some logs with the A/F guage to see if I can get some power. I have done a couple quick runs and was at 10.8 to 11.5, so I think I can lean it out and get some more power. Its just so much work to prep the truck, then put it back together in the dark after a long day a work. It will depend on the weather, if its cool and the DA is going to be low, I will prep it, if not, I will just run it the way I drove it there.

Or maybe I will bring the Charger and play with it a bit, or maybe bring the wife in the Charger and me in the truck, then I can play with both.

Maybe Mopar day would be better since it's on a Saturday.
