My dad just couldnt take it anymore, his cam only SRT needs more power :)

He had his 6 speed challenger driven up from FL and its sitting next to my old crappy car now, lol. He is getting an Arrington 440 and PWR heads installed and tuned by AJ/Hemituner. Ill let you guys know how it goes.

Aint nothing like Torred when it's all shined up n purdy. I like a bunch of other colors on the Mopars over the years, but Torred on boats like ours is pure love.

Can't wait to see this combo in action. It's always cool hangin out with your dad Dan. He's a hell of a guy. It was cool to see my wife and your dad make their first LX/LC drag strip passes ever against each other down in Bradenton this year. I fear that after this is done though, the outcome will shift dramatically.

Well we are making some progress on the car. Well actually its done, lol, but we are making progress on making it go fast :)

These 6 speeds are a bear to drive fast and well, lots of wheel hop when you break lose. Its really nasty how it feels, I thought for sure Id break something on it today when I felt it for the first time. It was so bad, I stopped doing burnouts and ran it with dirty/cold DR's. I basically had to ease it out of the hole and and it would still chatter the DR's as I got into it. We'll get that issue resolved but its not really a track car, its a badass street car for sure.

This is the best I was able to do today, as you can see from the MPH, the car makes some serious HP. The 60 foot makes me sad but its just not setup to go hard out of the hole right now. Im happy, car has low 11's for sure when the wheel hop issue is resolved.

Its going to be running at the Orlando Modern Street HEMI Shootout, come over and meet us/him. I think you met my dad once before, he called me talking about your car.
