Dodge Avenger Forum
I had another run in with another SXT 3.5L Charger (nice looking in red) earily today around 7am. He passed me on the highway and gave a thumbs up and point to the rest stop just up the road. I followed him in. This guy just wanted to see how good a run he would have against the baby Charger. He said he had read mixed reviews, and one of the reviews stated that Dodge is willing to put the R/T badge on anything these days. I told him I had no problem, but I would like to see what his mods are. He showed me his CAI and he did have nice sounding pipes. I told him I had the Stage2 chip and in the summer I will have more performance parts put on. After the talk was done we headed out and started the run at a 30mph roll, I was in 3rd gear and he beeped three times and I hit the gas and shifted at 5,000 rpm's into 4th, and then again at 5K into 5th, I was already at 100mph and hit 120mph at 5,000rpms into 6th gear. I looked and he was about three cars behind me. After slowing down he gave me a thumbs up and turned off the highway. It gets better though. After thinking my Avenger was unstopable, I run into a Hemi powerd Charger at the outter city limits and I had my a** handed to me. At the stop light he did give me a thumbs up. So, if you run into a Hemi Charger and you want to run him, get a grip on yourself and think twice.
