The Charger was always a big car, It very easily could have been a 4 door in the 60s. But it wouldnt have been as appealing to the "hot-rodder" generation. So when dodge brought it back they brought it back as a BIG car. It just has more doors. In a way, it is living up to its name, and in a different way it isn't. The Challenger was a mid-sized car, and IF they bring that back too I guarantee it won't be a 4 door.

Since when was the Charger a 4-door? They already have the 300C. What a dumb marketing move.

Hey I do want to get technical. Go back and read my post i said THAT charger. That charger is the R/t and it has a 50 hp advantage. And the wrx may be a 2 door but thwe sti isnt. Subaru doesnt make a 2 door sti. Smart guy. Oh and ive done a 160 on a higly modified GSX-R 750. I said the STi was one of the fastest things ive driven not FASTEST. So you want to argue about anything else.

and it must have been an older 750 cause if you were on a newer 750 that was modified you could go closer to 180. unless you just got scared and let off. or ran out of road.

No it was brand new. It had 34 miles on it. My brother won it in a sweepstakes from smokeless tobacco. From the factory the bike was a rqace bike. The driver could never get it tuned just to his specifications so they gave it away in a drawing. I didnt run out of road i ran out of drag strip.

a mile per second would be 60 miles a minute so likie 360mph. Now i no for a fact you dont have a car that will do a mile persecond.

i was talking about the bike and my math was ****ed up. 180 mph divided by 60 is 30 30 divided by 60 is .5 so its half a mile per seccond. i dont like using calculators
