Hemi Charger kills Mustang sixxer...

So I was drivin around killin time till the gf gets off work,
when a hemi charger comes up next to me from behind haulin ass on the beltway feeder...
I see him comin so I downshift and manage to keep up till the next light...
We take off and both of us spin like ****in crazy keepin us about dead even till we both hook and the charger starts pullin...
He doesn't pull hard,
but steadily through 4th till we shut down at the next red light...
In all he put about a car maybe a car and a half on me...
We take off again at this light,
but this time I feather pretty damn good and take the launch holdin it through second till he hooks good and starts pullin again...
Same result except he only puts about half a car to a full car on me this time...
We aren't up front on this light so I roll down my window and ask wut mods he's got other than his gynormous chrome 20"s...
(Hell... They might have been 22"s or 24"s for all I know... ****in huge though...)
Turns out all he's runnin is a pair of flowmasters...
Pretty sure he was auto cause he only spun in 1st,
whereas I scratched through 4th...
After that light we parted ways cause I had to exit...
Not a great story,
but I was surprised I kept up as well as I did...
Oh...
He also had another person w him in the car...
Not as big as the guys in the GT I raced the other day...
Maybe 160-170 extra lbs though...
Anywho,
enjoy...

Sounds like fun even though the outcome is expected. Those chargers are sexy cars in SRT-8 clothing. I want to get my wife one to haul the groceries in.

Yessir...
Just the 5.7 R/T...
The only reason I kept up is cause he couldn't drive,
he was most likely auto,
and he had huge fuckin wheels...
lol
