well the 5.7 Challenger has 370hp and 390tq vs the 5.7 in the 300 with 340hp?
c will lose. the cars weigh nearly the same, but suspension on the Challenger and the added power will put it ahead
edit: it will probably put some lengths on a C at XXX speeds

The new 5.7L for the 300's put out more 360hp and 390 lb-ft torque. I think it was changed in 2009. I'm thinking it would be fairly close since Dodge states the Challenger R/T gets up to 60 in 6 seconds, which is around the same as the revised C's.

ok i wasnt sure when the power upgrade was coming in..
should be much closer, if the Chally is a 6-speed and the driver is competent, it should pull more

C has 10 less horsepower and weighs slightly more. Also, with a shorter wheel base, the challenger may get a little more weight transfer onto the rear wheels on launch for a minor traction advantage.

sounding more and more like a drivers race....especially from a dig, if the C gets a good start
on a roll, i say the Chally slowly pulls, be interesting to see!!
but vs an older C, Chally will pull well

I do think the Challenger has an advantage in any case, especially if there were corners and curves involved the C would definitely loose.

Not quite the matchup asked for

My wife has the 08 R/T charger w/CIA and Predator, with our local LX club at the 1/8 and 1/4 mile tracks last year, she never lost to a 08 R/T Challenger auto or 6 speed and she faced the 5 or 6 different challengers in our group multiple times. Our R/T is the basic package and is about 150 LB's lighter than the Daytonas and she weighs less than 100 lB's and that is some of it,

I cannot ever remember the Automatic Challengers starting to pull back on the big end. The six speeds with the 3.73 Track-Pac could not get any traction out of the hole but would be really coming on on the big end but could never quite catch her.

The R/T's best run is 1/8- 8.79 1/4-13.89

Explain. Challenger RT, Charger RT and 300C are basically the same car and have the same suspension more or less. Shorter wheel base in the Challenger might benefit in an autocross course with tight turns but on a road course with the same rubber, it would be a driver's race.

I was more referring to the shorter wheel base. I think the ride in a Challenger is slightly tighter with less roll then 300's. I'm not sure if the suspension is different in a Challenger I just assumed it was.
