I agree. Those things are heavy as hell, or at least look it. But I raced a new Dodge Intrepid a few weeks ago and I KILLLLED it! I was running kinda sluggish to second gear, and I still handed him his a$$ no problem. To be honest I knew he had more hp, but I thought it would have been a little closer than that

Yeah it is rated at 200hp, but only puts down like 130 to the wheels because Chryslers trannies are crap.

I've heard bad stories of the trannies in Chyslers. My (former) friend'* Sebring had his tranny die at less than 75,000 miles. That might not have been the first time it went too.

Chrysler in general is just crap. Plus those cars are heavy as hell..
But Bonneville'* aren't the defintion of 'light' either.

The 300M is in the same boat. Has potential, but not with that transmission. My father-in-law (ex now, this was at the time I bought this car) got to drive the Bonneville back from Portland when I picked it up. I drove my rental car we used to go up there. He owns a 300M. He was very impressed with the power, regardless of the fact the car hadn't run in 5 years (stored), had an eroded plug gap on all 6 of 0.090", and had bad plug wires and a clogged Catalytic converter.
