    I think the Challenger would have closed the performance gap against the SS if they tested them with the automatic transmission. The SS performed really well with the 6 speed transmission.

    The 245 rear tires on the Challenger also ensured the Challenger wouldn't place any better than 2nd place. I'm pretty sure the Camaro and Mustang have wider tires in the rear than the 245's.

    The Challenger is by far the best looking.

    This is what I was thinking as well.

    The Mustang has 255 rears, stock. I can't speak to the Camaro. And the Challenger doesn't have the adjustable suspension in the Scat Pack Shaker, does it?

    It would be interesting to know the rear gears in the other two. The Mustang would likely have the 3.73's if it's like my girlfriend's

    I'm surprised to see such a great disparity in the 1/4 mile times between the cars. I'd be curious to see how many attempts were made with each car.

    As a long time Chevy owner I wanted to like the new Camaro. On paper, everything works. But after sitting in one, I can't believe the Motorweek guys didn't mention it: outward visibility. It was horrible, bordering on dangerous. Part of going fast is being able to see and I'm not that big and flat didn't feel comfortable. No matter how fast the new ZL1 is I have ZERO regrets getting the Hellcat. At least I can see out of it.

    There is a lot of truth in this. We, Tams and I, autorcross and track day our car. I physically do not fit into a Camaro or even the new GT350 with it's ricaros. The Camaro I'm too tall, and the Mustang I'm too wide. 6', 38" waist, 30" inseam, 250lb. I'm tall from the waist up: Me in one of my Miatas: http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f193/redae86/DSC_9763.jpg . A big enough car is important. I hope Dodge makes the future Challengers able to fit 315 or better tires on all four corners factory. Hell - it's a heavy car... we need more than 275.

    I responded to the original post that is now deleted. I am not post #1 one. I believe Koolcat posted the link.
