Default new charger didnt know what hit him.

So I have babied my truck this last month. Trying to be a good boy. And well I guess I have to be bad now and then. So I was at a stoplight heading home from the nightshift job. And this white new charger with big rims and really dark tint. Pulls up beside me. I looked over and didnt see a hemi badge so I didnt think anything of it. Well light turns green and were side by side at 10 mph. And I guess he didnt like that. So he floors it. Well my old ways kicked in and decided to do the same. Truck was still in first so. Tires decided to make some noise to around 30. But by this time im already at his side again. And I keep going to around 60 mph. (55 speed limit). By that time he was around 2 cars behind. So I slowed down and figured he learned his lesson. Come up to the next light. He has his window down. And ive never seen a guy with eyes so big. I laughed and gave him a peace sign. He nods and turns right. Man that made my whole 12 hour shift worth it. Haha.. btw im not tuned right now. So was on stock tune.

Good race, I wonder what he had in it? I saw a charger the other day with 26's on it, it was so ugly. I don't like rims that look like wagon wheels.

Not sure but I know the 6 cyl with the 8 speeds are only like a half sec slower to 60 then the hemi with 5 speed auto. Because of the quickness of 8 speed. But having a stalled truck probably was the deciding factor in this race for me. Since I was running stock tune.

Very nice. I traded my 2012 black top edition charger v6 with 8spd for my truck. Absolutely no pull from dig. too heavy of a car and not enough torque. My buddys stock 06 pontiac g6 would be instant taillights til about 30mph and i'd start pulling hard and pass him. From a 20mph roll it was actually pretty quick. Just look for the R/T badge in the grill

Yah I still like chargers. Especially the awd option you can get in the rt. Ive seen some new awd rts run 0 to 60 in 5 sec flat. And a supercharger to that woukd put it at a probably low 4 sec 0 to 60. If I bought a new charger I would go for the awd rt.and not the rwd rt.
