Guys, don't confuse the 300C for the 300C SRT-8. The regular C only pulls a .79 at the skidpad and is a high 14 second car. They must have done some serious suspension work to get the SRT-8 to .9 and obviously the 425hp engine for the high 12'*.

ya bring on the Trailblazer SS Ls2 Corvette Derived engine and a CAI....STOCK...it will PWN the GC...the GC SRT-8 is the worst thing that the SRT lineup has...all of the Daimler Chrystler products suck...just wait till they blow the trans in like 20K

I'd take a Caddy STS-V over that 300.

I concur, sir Sol. Chrysler trannies are slushboxes. Until they change their reputation, I'd never own one.

Actually the STS-V is what I initially liked. Then it was tested. Tell me if it makes sence for a 469hp */C car to run a [email protected] only 103mph? And why does it only produce 439ftlbs with a M112?

I hate Chrysler'* trannies more than anyone here. I told myself i'd never buy a Chrysler again. So, if I ever get a 300C SRT-8 i'll debadge it and call it Mercedes, cause it really is more Mercedes than Chrysler. Oh, and these trannies won't blow because they ARE Mercedes trannies. Even Chrysler knows thier trans can't handle this kind of power.

I've always wondered...

What does the SRT stand for?
Stupid
Retard
Toy
(For those that were dumb enough to buy a second Dodge product)

Special
Required
Training
(To deal with the "Dodge" experience)

Seriously though...what does it really stand for?
