Video posted after the jump
Ahh, YouTube: the equivalent of morning cartoons for us grown-ups, only now we drink coffee with our Fruity Pebbles. The post title pretty much sums this up. As more people get their hands on SRT8 Dodge Challengers, more videos of wanton tire massacre will surface. Today's round comes via MyRide, which set about tagging the tarmac at Willow Springs with a silver example. When the Camaro finally comes out, we expect to see approximately one bajillion videos exactly like this, with at least half sporting the inevitable Dead Milkmen soundtrack. Thanks for the tip, David!

      I agree with Norm, and IMO it's one of the few cars aside from Euros that looks good in silver. I'm not a fan of dull or drab colors but I would take a Challenger in silver any day and smoke'em.

        TriShield, this car is so good-looking (imo) that I would happily roll in the V6 in the B5 Blue like the one displayed at the NYIAS. Of course, an R/T in B5 would be even better...

      Reverse burnout!
      Lets see if it upshifts on the fly to the second reverse gear.

      I don't care if it has 305s on the rear, the SRT8 has less than 45% of the weight on the rear axle.

      So if you were going to purchase one, the biggest decision would what axle ratio to get, 3.73 or 3.92. (There are far too many potholes to get the 20", so the choice has already been made)

      uhhh, 425 HP with only 255s on the rear... You were expecting something different?

      How frickin' awesome! I still can't believe the Challenger is back and I'm going to be driving mine soon. It even looks good in silver.

        flashpoint, you're retarded. If you can't afford to put gas in it, dont buy it.

        i cant wait to see some of this action in the flesh. Such a badass car.

        Don't get me wrong, I love Chrysler. My girlfriend has a 300c while I own an S550. But this idea is stupid.

        If you take a long look at the Challenger's history, it was discontinued to to the gas crisis years ago. Now, gas is higher than ever and they are re-releasing a car with the same SRT8 that gets just 14 MPG city-highway (or less) ?

        Madness...These things are gonna sit in lots after the intial craze over them is over. The only Chargers that will continue to sell will be the 2.7's and 3.5's a year or so from now.

        This thing shoulda been a hybrid.

      Let's also mention that this is the first time we see the DODGE reverse light light-up. It looks as good as the tires lit-up.

      GM tests at the Nurburgring. Chrysler tests in parking lots.

      LOL

      they should have installed a LSD...one wheel burn outs are a little amateur o_O...either case, nice car and nice exhaust...
      • 6 Years Ago
      Big deal. A weak burnout session with a lame automatic challenger. Who would even want one of these with an auto?? Get a life, get a stick.
      • 6 Years Ago
      am i the only one who started singing "Bitchin Camaro" at the mention of the Dead Milkmen?
      • 6 Years Ago
      I'm tired of burnout videos. I know this car weighs 2 tons and is about as quick as a mustang gt, but can we see some high speed action?

      I used to do burnouts in my volvo 240d. No big deal.
