• New muscle cars

    Was wondering if anyone has been watching any of the videos of the new Dodge Challenger and now Charger Hellcats?

    707HP and the Charger Hellcat has a top speed of 204mph. 10.8 second quarter miles - straight off the showroom floor.

    Very impressive.. Two different key fobs. One for "mild driving" to get better gas mileage and one for "full tilt".

    Would really like to have both the Challenger and Charger hellcats, or at least
    find a friend that will be buying one.

    Greetings Mark!

    Yeah, but I'm very skeptical about Dodges advertising.

    707HP and the Charger Hellcat has a top speed of 204mph. 10.8 second quarter miles - straight off the showroom floor.

    AFAIK, you can't program Chrysler computers because it's all proprietory circuitry; but the factory has opened up a new can of worms. Which will be exploited by those who want to be first in backward-engineering them.

    One has to wonder if they've departed from building rust gathering cars
    and have begun to build cars that will live in any envioronment besides southerun, read; no ice melting salt on the roads, territory.


    Have a day!
