I updated my MPGs, did a photoshoot with some friends, and briefly drove a Charger RT.
1. On the MPG front, doing more hand calculating for the last week 1/2, I drove 230 miles of 95% city and 5% highway, and acquired an average of 23.8 MPG!! That’s .8 MPG better than the ST’s city rating! The computer said I did 22.5 MPG before I filled up tonight; talk about off by such a significant amount.
2. Drove to Dearborn and did some rolling and still shots with some friends. After we finished, I got to drive the Charger above in a parking lot. It was straight-piped, and sounded really good! Not obnoxious by any means in my opinion.
It’s weird, because in person, it’s not a big looking car nor does it look like a 2-ton boat. I’ve never spent much time around them, but I really do like the way they look; 4-door fastback look FTW. And for weighing 2-tons, it has a lot of pickup and go and handles better than I thought, the steering is good feeling, and it gets sideways in parking lots too!! And I can see the hood and out in front of me! ^_^
I LOVE THIS AUTOMATIC LIKE NO OTHER! THE PADDLES ARE GREAT AND THE BEST PART....
IT FARTS ON THE UPSHIFTS!!!!! :D
I actually want one more than I thought now. When blacked out in the right spots (the grille) it looks much better than the Challenger. I kinda want one more than a Challenger, and I’m all about 2-door cars.
The only thing I didn’t like is the fact that the neutral rev limiter is at just under 4000rpm, but I bet a tune could get rid of that. :p
All in all, tonight was good.
