Probably the one that is less likely to float on water.

Boss high 11's in the 1/4 , don't see a Challenger coming close , maybe the Dodge would win in a boat race ?

Re: Boss 302 VS Challenger 392

Have you guys seen that tech specs of the 2012 SRT/8 392 ?
FORD will loose a lot of customers with that, price for a FULL will be around 45K out of the dealership.
I wounder if anyone has any experience with DODGE Challenger SRT/8.

Re: Boss 302 VS Challenger 392

Just read an article on the 392... AW stated something in the 12's I think... Don't have the mag in front of me, it's in the "reading room"...

INCREDIBLE...it looks like the 2012 SRT/8 - 392 will be a GREAT competitor for the BOSS or any other stangs on the 40K price range!

I test-drove the SRT/8 (2011), which is not the 392 YET, and I was surprised with the handling, power and mostly COMFORT and SPACE over the Mustangs.

I wonder if anyone has experience with Dodges, preferably not on RACING, just regular FAST driving, muscle looks and driving fun.

TKS,

Re: Boss 302 VS Challenger 392

Fastest times posted on the dodge forums for a bone stock 392 are 12.4-12.6

stock 5.0 12.2 manual and 12.3 auto.

No one really posted no times for a bone stock boss yet. But one place swapped tires on a boss and went 11.7

The thing for 45K you can also get a new GT500 or a Boss if you look in right places. So that is what should compare to. Which the GT500 will do 11s with tires only..Best GT500 with tires is 11.1@12X

Will say the dodge interior is super nice though. Friends wife traded her 2010 GT500 in on a 2011 Chally R/T. It ran a 13.3 in the 1/4. He traded his 2010 Camaro in on a 5.0 and ran a 12.6 stock.

Also you put them on a road course where the Boss was designed to be and its game over for the 392 SRT8. The boss has taken down the GT-R/ZO6 at road courses. That is very very sweet.

Re: Boss 302 VS Challenger 392

All these new muscle cars are great to the general public. They have high HP,well designed interiors,handling and each one has the looks to appeal to all kinds of taste. IMO it comes down to what you are gonna use it for. I think the general everyday Joe will be more than happy with any one of the three. I would never stray from the Mustang myself because I am brand loyal but if I had to get a 4 dr because of kids I would stray to a Charger SRT8.........or a "V"!

Sure it's nice on the outside but I hate the inside and driving it was terrible....I really didn't care for the gearshift either....looks or feel.....but atleast Mustangs aren't alone in the muscle world anymore...we were running out of people to beat

Re: Boss 302 VS Challenger 392

One thing I did like about the challenger was the cool little steering wheel option that shows your 0-60 & 1/4 mile times.......pretty cool.

Re: Boss 302 VS Challenger 392

Bass all day every day, but I do admit that the challengers look badass,but so do the boss 302's and new GT's, more bang for your buck with the mustangs. Only thing i didn't like was the original interior for the Challenger, came from one of their sedans I believe. Also the fact that they weigh sooo much. But to each his own...

Not even close. Bone stock they go high 12's in ideal conditions. I love my 5.0 too but let's keep it real. Mine has full exhaust tune boss intake BBK tb and jlt and it runs consistent 12.4's on street tires. Auto. With a converter and a tire it'll be 11's... an m6 with my mods and a tire would go low 12's or high 11's. Not stock though. I watched 2 other stock 5.0's all night the auto was going consistent 13.1 the other was a manual seen him running anywhere from 12.8-13.5.

The past 2 summers I've run a lot of races against Hemi Challengers at TMS Friday night drags. 1/8 mile.

Not one race has been close!! No exaggeration. They are too heavy.

Here's an example:
