  1. Stock 2020 GT500 Dyno

    Whatever he is doing, it's paying off because at no point in my life have I ever been lucky enough to get a top tier performance car like that and drive it home. Plus, to get one that early, he probably paid $20-$30k dealer markup over MSRP.

    Not bad! With the weight of that car, it should run some pretty solid numbers down the 1/4. Let us know when you hit the track next year and maybe we can all meet up on a Sunday at Beech Bend. I'll grab some DR's and see if they'll stick decent.

    I drive the crap out of anything. :lol: Unless it isn't mine to break.

    You have got to be babying that car! I drive my junk hard. Just look back on past logs. About 98% of them were my daily drive to work.

    Sucks having to put an animal down that's part of the family.

    I think it'll be easy to mod the GT500 in to the 9's. And I love how it sounded on the dyno when it shifted. Sounds quick and has a pop like the supercars.

    Yeah, was wondering that because with TC on I still spin, but you can tell the car is killing power. I wish there was a way to log TC only and see what all it is doing. That said, I'll never turn TC off until I get DR's or slicks -- which will be next race season. All season 275 tires isn't something I want to try to drive aggressive with 760 rwhp.

    I wonder what all (throttle, brakes, timing, fuel, etc.) Traction Control uses to keep tire spin down and the max % it can take away from actual drive input (100% WOT) on my 2010 SS.

  12. The Challenger is Home

    I heard some wheel spin.... Trust me, these big 4,000lb muscle cars EAT rear tires fast. When I drove the SS daily, I was putting rear tires on about every 6 months. Even with Traction Control on, except to clean them off before a run at the drag strip.
  13. Good Weekend Deer Hunting

    Nice! We seem to be overpopulated with deer in TN so the more you put in the freezer the better! Plus, it makes the rods safer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
