It's BRAKE not break, you're breaking my freaking head!!!!

If he had a turbo, I'd believe it. Those V8 300s don't have the 8 spd either, so I'd not be surprised that at certain speeds the acceleration can be held back some due to gearing, and it's a heavy, non-aerodynamic car. It's sort of like racing a lowered truck. The 8 spd is only available with the 3.6 right now, which can be really disappointing because they make it sound like it's available on all motors in the commercials.

I blew past a Charger SRT the other day, like he was standing still, the guy couldn't catch me, no chance... and he knew it, cause he kept putting coins in the parking meter.

I have actually owned an SVT focus, SRT 300 and Charger and there is not a snowballs chance in hell that our focus would keep with either of those SRT 8's, don't get me wrong I love my Focus and have even since traded in my Charger for a '12 Focus, but there is nothing like have that Hemi under the hood
