The two cars that I am considering between for purchase later this year



So this is the transmission in the V-6 Charger. See the higher version rated for 1000Nm (little over 700lb-ft) of torque? Yea I want to know why the SRT8 still has a 5 speed damnit, Dodge has no excuse

The show this year was pretty good. I went to the industry preview this year. You took some really good pictures. I love the exhaust tips on the new Vette.

For a quick second, I lost all comprehension that Brian took these pics. I'm like nah, he didn't take these, these look like magazine pics. So I saved one, he sure did take these...
Canon EOS Rebel T3i

Those pictures put my Nikon to shame.

Because the ZF transmissions are built by Fiat for one reason, maximum MPG. The transmission in the SRT8 is built for maximum 1/4 mile track speed and dunno pulls for bragging rights.

more is not better. you only need a bunch of gears if you have a peaky engine. if it has a flat torque curve you dont need it. how many years did all the v8'* live just fine with 4?

Correct but the 8 speed would improve gas mileage on the SRT8. We don't live in the same time as when they all had 4, people actually care about gas mileage now.
