Followed the gentleman on a two lane and then behind him on a 4 lane in traffic. I "might" have been aggravating him a little bit. His tail lights would get larger and then smaller and then larger. Even though he was running a steady speed limit.
The we came to a stop light and I eased up beside him. The lane I am in is a turn lane and then a merge lane. The merge lane is 6-700 feet.

He revved up, I giggled......had him by 6 lengths before I merged in front of him. But the V8 did sound so good!

Ya and he weighs a heck of a lot more. For most run of the mill opposition, the small hemi is enough. Ask me how I know :wink:

B4 I got Schwarzie (@4.2sec), I went through tires on the RT (5.8 sec+4400 lb; 2015 charger is 3900 lb vs 3200 lb for you) at the same rate I do now (every 20,000 mi or so).

You should be on the Frequent Buyer Plan :wink:
Why do you think they have a special red carpet with a label on it says (for Sarge only) that gets rolled out every time he comes around Mercedes? He buys everything from his dealer except for performance modifications. Oh, and wax - he buys that in bulk.

So what are you using to get the burnt rubber off the lower rear quarters:wink:; pre treat with WD-40? Or do you just use tear-offs like they do on helmet visors during a race?


On the weight question; I think we might be discussing curb weight versus GVWR; as in max load. I know; not much for two people and what luggage will fit in the trunk when the roof is down, but then again these weren't meant for hauling heavy equipment.

Yeah, Sarge must love his burnouts! I should get over 20k out of my tires.
