Stage 1 vs Charger R/T

I got to run my Stage 1 GTI (DSG) from a stand still against my step-dad's Charger R/T with cold air intake and exhaust...

It was dead even until about 90 MPH when he started to pass me.

I was surprised. I originally thought the extra power of the V8 would be too much for the GTI to handle, but it couldn't have been any closer until we got to high speeds.

I drove the Charger just before we lined up, and I started to think it would be closer than I originally thought.

The extra weight makes a huge difference, I guess.


I have a vid through the windshield, so you can't really see the Charger (you can certainly hear it though... Lol) til he finally passes me (plus the bottom half of the frame is my dash, since I just used my phone mount with the iPhone cam on), but I'll see what I can do about posting it.

Ok, got it up...

Like I said, it's strait ahead, so you don't even see him til he passes me, but you can hear him right next to me the whole time. And it's him chirping at the beginning of the race...

Here is the vid for ya....



Nice! Those first gen Chargers aren't as fast as you'd like to think. A gen 2 like mine has more power... recently I took out a modded 13 WRX and a brand new WRX.

Try and find a 2nd gen and give them a go!

Pretty solid keeping up like that from a dig!!

Thanks!

That's the first time I have ever raced... Aside from the time I tried to take a Mustang GT from a red light when I was stock... That's what convinced me to go stage 1.

We ran from about a 20 MPH roll before this and I smoked him. I thought I had a better roll, but he said it was really because when he hit the gas, he was at a goofy RPM.

I'm happy with the results though. At first, I thought he'd smoke me. But after a drove his car a few minutes earlier, I knew I had a chance. I just didn't think it'd be neck-and-neck like that.

After he drove the GTI, he described as driving a "little fighter jet." Lol... His Charger felt like driving a boat... Haha

I don't really have the ability... My phone mount only turns slightly and it wouldn't really have been enough to see much more.

Ah. So true. They always seem to dyno higher than advertised. Thanks for pointing it out!
