We got one in the dealership today. I was the one to do the inspection on it. Anyhow everyone starts talking about how it could smoke my car. It's bone stock and heavy. I smoke those crap piles. They do look good though. It's only funny that they want to race now that my tranny is pulled out. Just you wait. When I finally get mine back, it's on. Faster and stronger. I did offer to push mine and someone push the challenger. No takers though lol

Lol! I guess the day and age of a 4000+ lbs car running a 11.68 1/4 mile is no longer respectable? You should just sell your G8 tomorrow and buy the Dodge! ;)

Yeah tell them that the only way a Challenger RT would beat you ....with your car broke down. My buddy has one and he is still always amazed at the performance of the G8 :)

Yeah the Challenger R/T sucks performance wise, it's overweight and has a crappy 5 speed. Get a decent transmission and lose some weight and they would be respectable. But the G8 wins 60% of the time, all the time.... figured that movie quote would fit nicely here.

As soon as you landed that joke, I'm sure you IMMEDIATELY regretted the decision.

I don't even understand what the original post meant. So you didn't actually race one but just saw one in person? How is this a kill or did I miss an actual race?

Yeah, this is more of a bench racing scenario, but regardless, it would be barely a contest with a stock G8: with one as fast as yours, OP, it'd be worse than a rout LOL! It's amazing how people (i.e. your coworkers) get suckered in by appearances.

I literally pray for those to roll up next to me on the interstate. Now the 2012+ R/T? Mucho better performance wise.
