I Lost

but it was only by about 1 - 1 1/2 cars. I raced a new chrysler 300 C (has the HEMI) from a dead stop. We went up to about 90MPH and I was so stoked that I only lost by so little.... Those things have 340 HP, but weigh like 4000 pounds... It's kinda nice to see that I can kinda run with a $35,000 car. With a few mods...I'll take em...MAYBE

Now he may not have been on it all the way...but He was pretty shocked that I was keeping up like I was...

The 300 SRT-8 is the one that run's 5.5 0-60 and 14's in the 1/4... not the regular 300c. I think that's why I stood a 4 banngers chance...

unless its an srt model the hemi is horse shit, i beat a hemi powered magnum a few weeks back - they just aren't designed well and the power goes to waste.
