    Let me setup the scenario.

    I'm cruising up a main street in my city to get to the freeway. As I pull up to a light about 2 blocks away, a white 2013 or 2014 Charger RT(5.7) pulls up next to me and gives me the, now infamous, Vampire stare lol. I assume he's gonna try and get in front of me to the freeway on-ramp, so I cruise slowly and let him in front.

    At this point, we're under a freeway overpass awaiting the light to turn green to enter the freeway when he revs his engine. We both merge onto the freeway and he guns it around a tractor-trailer. He slows down about an 1/8th mile ahead and I get next to him to initiate a roll race. Again, looking like Dracula, he looks at me with those blood thirsty eyes.

    I honk 3 times and give him the jump, then I slammed my foot to the floor. It wasn't long until I put a few buses on him, then I shut it down. I slow back down to give him a thumbs up, buthe just kept rolling by without even glancing in my direction.

    Later, coincidentally, he gets off at the same exit I do about 40 miles away. We both have to make a right at this light, at which he tried to throw his rearend around the corner and show off, but he only spun the inside tire lol.

    Those chargers make a nice boat :) lol. Maybe he should have had a Boss Mani :p

    Edit: BTW, I'm new here and this is my first "real" post other than my introduction.

    Sometimes people seriously over estimate the power and speed of their cars. Easy kill.

    (I need to check my spelling more often.)

    Compared to pony cars you'd be correct. In its segment I'd beg to differ:poke:

    Good kill OP. Most R/T's are nothing to worry about.

    understandable but it comes down to a classic issue with alot of other cars other than chargers, the people driving them are mistaken on their class or tier. stock civic si's who think they can beat a new 5.0, 450000000000lb challenger r/t's who think they are in the same class as new camaro's......it goes on and on. and dont get me started on trucks. so many dam trucks around here think that since their ram 1500 has dual exhaust they can run circles on new 5.0's.

    Just had a guy think he was hot stuff in his Ram 1500 no longer than 30 minutes ago. I'm stopped at a light, alone, when I see a motorcycle and a truck coming towards me from behind. The light goes green and they blow past me. The Ram owner decides to get in my lane up towards the next light, which was about a 1/4 mile ahead. I switch lanes and get next to him, I look over and he's just smiling at me. The light goes green and I was gonna casually cruise to merge into his lane up ahead(I was in a merging lane) but I hear him slam on the pedal, at which point I do the same and leave him. Mind you, we're approaching a winding road and he attemptes to hit the corners as hard as I did.

    As you said, some people just don't know their place in line. I take it you've had these truck guys think they'll dust you too, huh? Hahah

    Interesting way of combining all kills in one thread! Good kills op, now go find something more competitive than Ram 1500 and charger R/T and report back.

    Thanks man, I didn't feel it was a worthy kill to start another thread. Hopefully I can find a more worthy competitor. I mean, My 5.0 is stock powerwise, so its on the slower side of the scale lol. Unfortunately, all the 'Vettes I encounter don't even want to give me the time of day hahah ;)

    Nice slaughter op.

    There's a 22 year old at work that says his 2005 GMC 2500 crew cab 4x4 duramax with exhaust and tune would destroy my car. I said "okay, I'll bet a paycheck on it" and he said what kind of car is it? Just a mustang?

    And I replied yes, just a mustang.

    Some people just don't get it.

    I take the treat of an RT or SRT the same as your common G35. Literally all of the ones in my area are stock or have every appearance mod with maybe new mufflers.

    The only charger/challenger that gets my blood slightly pumping is an SRT 392 but even then it's not much of a competition

    for you 5.bros the 392 Challengers should be just about the only thing that'll run with you. well those and the Heavycat.




    similar to the bolt-on Mach 1 guys...

    03 Mach 1 - 4:30 gears, full exhaust, intake, tune

    SRT 392 Challenger - tune, cat back


    the Mach was slightly ahead when he topped out 4th and let out of it....

    ^you think that's the norm? If so that Mach will be door to door with a 5.0 too, which isn't the norm either.
