Nope. Good guess though.

The new models have 20 more hp then last years model but it is 200lbs heavier.

wow. now u got me thinking, if its lower et's then i may go out & buy one. was on stcok radials or did the car have DR's? if its higher then i feel better since with some mods i only ran a best 13.98 (i know it was only 1st runs).

second guess: 13.7 with stock tires
second guess: 13.4 with DR's

Stock street tires. It was all stock, the guy had only had it a couple weeks.

Third guess?

No more guesses? I think you guys might have given the car too much credit.
I saw the car make two passes. One I got to watch and the other I got to see him leave and then I drove past him.

Those are all really good guesses.

I didn't get to see his two time runs but the two elimination times were:
















14.44 & 14.57
I didn't see or hear any wheelspin.
So even with the increase in power it still runs the same times as a stock 06-08 R/T (non R/T pack or Daytona )

i guess the extra 200 lbs plus weight of driver offsets the 20+ hp gain. but, it's funny cause i went online to check out some numbers and Road&Track has it doing the qtr mile in 13.7 seconds, see below. I figured that was a bit quick being a stock r/t with extra 200+ lbs from the old version. wonder what conditions they ran the car?

That was an automatic?

I don't know much about the Chargers but I'm surprised at those times.

Nope, sadly it is not. My car with me in it and a 1/4 tank of gas is 4250 lbs. So you figure with driver the new car could be 4400-4500lbs. The other thing against it is the stock R/T final ratio used to be 2.82. I believe it is now 2.62. The new car is quite portly and needs more umph to get it going. I know of a Magnum that has cam and head work, trans work, and gears but most of the time runs 13.9-14.0. Why you ask? The car weighs 4600-4650 lbs with driver.

I assumed it would be more in line with Challenger times-, But I didn't know the gear ratio was a 2.82 either.

My (mostly) stock R/T runs 13.4 @ 104 (auto, 1/2 tank gas, my 245 lb fat a#$) and goes 4520 with me in it. Now that IS with 93 octane and the 91 CAI tune. Bone stock it ran a 13.7 @ 99.

I wasn't real happy with my times, But I guess I should be.

Interesting, seems like the weight is pretty even, other than the gearing I wonder where the difference is?

In really good air the new Charger(completely stock) will probably run 14.1/14.0. The first couple passes that I made with my car(stock except Airaid drop in) were 14.3-14.4 @under 100. So its close.
