    Thanks. It was the right time to mothball it. Cooler and rainy weather moved in Wednesday.

    Well, Finally after a bunch of home projects, I finally pulled the RC out of mothballs after eight months (2 months behind schedule) and pulled the top. Gotta love that VE pump on the 4bt. Fired up in a split second after sitting for eight months. Intercooler and other goodies coming soon.

    Well, after researching and searching up to 500 miles away, I finally found the Challenger R/T Scatpack Shaker I had been searching for the last 5 months. And, it was only 45 minutes away from my house.
    2017 Scat with only 4700 miles, with every available option, and in showroom condition.
    With all the kids grown and after 37 years of 4 door sedans and SUVs, it was time to get something for myself. And, I love it.

    well, okay first big apologies with this temporary hijack...but since you asked :P ;D

    so what Mopar has essentially done is build the new Challenger T/As with a modern version of a 1970 Cuda AAR hood, which is still a sweet combo, but I just really wish Mopar would build the T/As with the actual modern Mopar T/A hood, which they sell...which is why I don't understand why they don't come from the factory as such.  Just my personal preference is all.  If we'd kept our 2017 Challenger R/T 392 Scat Pack we'd have done it completely up as a modern T/A, complete with hood, wheels, spoiler, decals, and side pipes 8)

    Here's a modern Challenger with a Mopar T/A hood (it should be semi-flat black...and it has Cuda AAR stripes...but I digress ;D ) -



    here's a couple pics of some original 1970 T/As -





    and a couple 1970 AAR Cudas





    and a couple more new Challengers with a T/A hood (there aren't actually a lot of pic online with the T/A hood, and I believe every one had to be done aftermarket -

    yah we had a 2017 - that fawker was the fastest machine I've ever driven - explosively quick.  After a while we just realized we were driving a throughbred race car and would never ever be able to use it like we really 'wanted' to use it, and se we let it go for something a bit more practical...and for sure less to insure.  But man, that thing was pure sexy fast and sweet.  Would have loved to do a full blown modern T/A {cool}

    yah we had a 2017 - that fawker was the fastest machine I've ever driven - explosively quick.  After a while we just realized we were driving a throughbred race car and would never ever be able to use it like we really 'wanted' to use it, and se we let it go for something a bit more practical...and for sure less to insure.  But man, that thing was pure sexy fast and sweet.  Would have loved to do a full blown modern T/A {cool}
    My car insurance barely went up. $66 for the 6 month premium. Affordable. But, that's how it is at 57 years of age. Car insurance goes down and medical insurance goes up. Funny how that works out.

    well, okay first big apologies with this temporary hijack...but since you asked :P ;D

    so what Mopar has essentially done is build the new Challenger T/As with a modern version of a 1970 Cuda AAR hood, which is still a sweet combo, but I just really wish Mopar would build the T/As with the actual modern Mopar T/A hood, which they sell...which is why I don't understand why they don't come from the factory as such.  Just my personal preference is all.  If we'd kept our 2017 Challenger R/T 392 Scat Pack we'd have done it completely up as a modern T/A, complete with hood, wheels, spoiler, decals, and side pipes 8)

    Here's a modern Challenger with a Mopar T/A hood (it should be semi-flat black...and it has Cuda AAR stripes...but I digress ;D ) -



    here's a couple pics of some original 1970 T/As -





    and a couple 1970 AAR Cudas





    and a couple more new Challengers with a T/A hood (there aren't actually a lot of pic online with the T/A hood, and I believe every one had to be done aftermarket -






    And quick highjack, these cars by far are one of the worst cars I have driven on a road course.  There is just not enough tire under this platform to make a truly good handling road course machine and they are about 1000lbs to heavy.

    They run great, stop good, handle terrible and I'm not sure about the most current units but there was not a way to adjust any of the suspension settings other than toe!    OK highjack over

    Phil! Did you drive a standard R/T or a SRT? There is quite a difference between the two.
    Now there's the "Wide Bodies" to choose from. Which is a whole other deal.

    I have driven them all SRT, RT,  SXT the V6 with the RT suspension (cant remember the option code) by far handled the best.  SRT brakes are nice. 

    Even with the ones the guys had done gear changes and added Quaffs/LSD it helped  but the tires would not last the day IE down to the cords on the front and all 4 were chunked real bad, but its a bolt together car IE the suspension units are delivered to Dodge and bolted in and that's what you get no adjustment.

    Even the wide body helps but it needs more tire say like a 345 in the rear and a 335 in the front but until dodge gets rid od the Mercedes E-clase design you are kind of stuck, mostly the car needs about a 1000lb diet then you might be able to do something with it.

    On the track the mustang just eats them up, they run good in the straights but the pony car goes right around you in the first turn.  The go fast track mustang weights about 3500lbs BTW which is like 700lbs lighter than the SRT.

    Well the Mustang is almost half the size of a Challenger.
    I wouldn't own a Mustang because I couldn't fit in one comfortably.

    We'll I don't drive road courses much at all... yet.
    And when I do... no Mustang will stand a chance against my Mopar.   ;D
    Road courses aren't a common everyday experience for most anybody.
    What I am saying, my truck can beat a Mustang... not on a road course. But at a drag strip. And most certainly anything with a little bit of sand or gravel on the surface. Let alone a dirt road... or dunes... or a gnarly hill.
    You can have those little go carts- most nobody knows how to drive.
    If you have enough money (Hellcat/ Redeye/ Demon) they can destroy any factory Mustang. And do it with legroom. I would never attempt to drive a Mustang across the United States. A Challenger... no problem.
    And besides, they're way better looking.

    Be careful Road Racing is EXTREAMLY addictive! well I would agree if you gutted the interior and redesigned the unibody, relocated suspension to get enough tire under the body you will do pretty well.

    Nothing is better than taking a USA made car with a V10 pushrod motor and ZERO electronic nannys to the track and just eating up in the Germans and Italians so much fun.

    man that's no lie.  I had an absolute blast road-racing my '71 Demon GTS-R, which I built myself, on several courses.  I never cared if I was faster than anyone else - I just wanted to have as much fun as I could within the limits of the car, and the car was no slouch.  It had a 440, 833 4-speed, 3.23 sure grip rear, wide 50-series tires, heavily modified suspension (stiff), and after checking my times I realized I was keeping up with the competition Cobra's...which left them about the same amount of incredulity as the guys surprised how well a 'truck' can perform.

    I can't help it - here's a couple crappy video's of me workin' it in the 2000 Cheyenne Shootout ;D -

    His Daytona works really well... as does his bragging abilities.   ;D
    My goal is to do as well and better than he does. At least when it comes to driving abilities.
