[1320] Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 by jmig3 [1320] Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 by jmig3
Here's James's Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 and among Mikhail and John his car's the odd one out, cause well... for starters the Challenger has no launch control like the 2013 GT500 and the Camaro ZL1 and that puts him at a slight disadvantage though it is mostly dedicated to do Quarter Mile drag races (hence the [1320] name. 1320ft is equal to a 1/4 mile) it is still a capable racetrack screamer and a decent drift car.

Just like the Camaro N690 and the 313 GT500, all of it's parts are custom made carbon fiber components and the suspension has been given a major overhaul

For the engine it's a 392 cubic inch 6.4L V8, equipped with a Vortech twin screw supercharger and intercooler kit, plus a K&N filter system and a Magnaflow exhaust kit giving it about 680hp and 600ft lbs of torque and it's transmission is also given a triple plate clutch and a 2-way Differential

For the suspension it's using a coil-over Eibach Multi-Pro suspension kit, Pdaft sway bars, subframes and bushings. And the brakes are Brembo carbon ceramic discs with 6-piston calipers and just like the GT500 if you want to stop faster, either just hit a tree use brakes off of a Bugatti Veyron XD

For wheels it's got a set of HRE CF40 carbon fiber wheels and semi-slick tires which are 315mm wide in the front and a monstrous 345mm wide at the back

For the exterior it's got a custom carbon fiber body made by AIT, it's got a rear diffuser and it also has fender flares to keep the tires poking out. All-in-all it weighs in at 3,300lbs after replacing the interior with carbon fiber and only sparing the electronics and the seats.

Oh and did I mention it has side-exit exhausts? XD

Those seams, is it true that those bumpers are tied, not hooked onto the car's frame? :iconmonkeythinkplz:

I think if it's like that, it would be difficult to change the bumpers when they're bent or broke, or maybe they're not what I think they are? :iconparanoidmonkeyplz:

Haaha... the faster way to stop is not use the brakes off of a Bugatti Veyron, but to hit a Bugatti Veyron and smash the Veyron into pieces.... :iconmonkeylaughplz:

Yup those bumpers are tied XD Since it's also gonna be used for drifting they're gonna have to be tied that way when the scrape the wall it'll just come off and not damage it too badly.

And "the faster way to stop is not use the brakes off of a Bugatti Veyron, but to hit a Bugatti Veyron and smash the Veyron into pieces..." that's probably a better alternative when there are no trees around XD

Oh, I see... isn't it better to have them bolted tightly rather than tied? I mean, those bumper ties can snap easily when the bumpers scrape the wall while in the real world it doesn't look good either. :iconwhatsthatplz:

Mwahahaha... yesss, smash the ugly Veyron into pieces. We still have Tuatara as the fastest car anyway... :iconyoyovuduplz:
jmig3 Oct 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah XD As Jeremy Clarkson would say: The "Tuatatatarahhararaawwor" XD
NotoAyako Oct 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, wow... I've never heard him saying that line. You think there's a Top Gear video about the Tuatara already? :iconwhatsupplz:
jmig3 Oct 22, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Unfortunately not at this time, but when SSC releases it, I bet Top Gear's gonna be the first to review it. :)
NotoAyako Oct 22, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It has to be... Quite surprised to hear that the Tuatara hasn't hit the road even until now, though... :iconderpyshrugplz:
jmig3 Oct 23, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, even though it was spotted in several shows.
