I think 12.232 is the best iv'e seen on the chat rooms, fully stock auto 392's
The engine sound is simply awesome!
That brief clip of it sounded a lot like my 5.7 with an SLP Loudmouth 2 system on it....and yes, it is a good sound.
What makes a manual trans SRT louder than an auto trans SRT? Is this difference between auto and stick loudness also on R/T's from 2010?
With 200 extra hp....... even a idiot will run into the 11's without slicks or all wheel drive.
The manual is louder than the automatic due to the engine not having MDS when paired with a manual and having a less restrictive exhaust without the resonators, that is also why it is ever so slightly more powerful with a manual transmission.
The auto and manual cars have two different exhaust systems as JRS200X said
AWD is heavy and not needed. The Hellcat has launch control and is capable of very very low 11 second passes on street tires.
I read that the 2015 Challenger was introduced at the Proving Grounds yesterday. Is that at all correct? No Hellcat though.
Yep press release for the Challenger.
What do you mean with press release? Just for the press I assume and still under embargo?
Why would they lift the embargo before NY?
It's just a few more weeks guys - be patient.
That's when the embargo began. Press received the release information.
Was Allpar there ?
I do not believe Allpar was invited. Dave or the other mods may be able to clarify better.
Sounds about right, before the debut of the 2011 Challenger SRT392s, Dodge took four of them to Drag Night at Infineon Raceway to get some numbers in... looks pretty close to your number Joe...
The first thing I though about when I watched that video were those pictures of the the 6.4 Ram. There for a second I was wondering if you took that video, but it was a parking lot full of Challengers and not Rams.
Thanks for remembering! I admit, I had to do a double take of that parking lot, but it would seem the boys and girls out of the Yucca Proving Grounds are creatures of habit.
Starting to think that the TFT shot shown today of the Challenger and the 4 second video on Chrysler's media page of the Scat Pack logo might be giving us a clue at the "Special Model". Maybe the special model will be nothing more than the upgrade of the Scat Pack Stage 3 from the factory!
But with a 6.4L instead of a 5.7L. And the proper brakes, etc...
Not that it's on the Challenger but interesting
