    Here is me getting annihilated by a charger. Some sorta bee emblem was on the side of it. I was moving and he was basically pushing me to get out of the way lol. Then he just zips around me like nobodies business in the end. It was fun times. You get some good engine notes out of the vid at least.

    The 8-speed auto gave the Charger a slight advantage. The 6-speed auto in the wife’s Escape turns the 2.5L into a rocket in gears 1-3.

    I think the 370 HP and nearly 400lbs of torque also plays a part.

    Yep. On paper and fully functioning under warranty, modern stuff can't be beat economically or feasibly. I think the age old saying about MoPar still rings true today; "They may be built like a beer can, but try and catch one."

    At least he/she wasn't an unmarked Trooper. Your 5-speed swap and perhaps some boost might give that Charger a bit more of a challenge.

    I have to say that the transmission is god awful for the power the car has. It is just not in sync with what the engine is providing. The mans trans will no doubt give the car a BIG seat of the pants improvement.

    From the burnout in video above...



    I took the photo a day after...I like how the thrown rubber is still behind the tread marks.

    A couple of the larger intersections within that small town are littered with donuts. I will not risk doing that in such a populated area.

    LOL I wonder if they shut down the intersections and do donuts until the police come; like they do on the west coast

    Unfortunately we might be seeing more of that here in NJ; as they are shutting down the tracks. E-Town being the more popular of the tracks that was shut down recently.

    Sorry Dave for

    Both are still open to my understanding; or at least they have online schedules. Island is 1.5 hours away from me and Atco is 2+ hours. Or, I go to The Hole if they're still racing there LOL

    Route 78 in Newark outside the penitentiary. They shut down the local lanes and race IIRC. Haven't been there in over 2 decades
