@Speedy! Would tree the snot out of him!
Maybe speedy has a lot more drag racing experience than I do but I still have 20+ years. When I won Streetcar Takeover the last time I still averaged a .11 on a .4 pro tree off a foot brake. I'm always down to race; however, I don't have anything to tow my car at the moment so it would have to be local to Tampa/Orlando unless someone sponsors the trip and I can get the time away. I had two other guys that had 170's both tell me that they wanted to race me and they both changed their minds for whatever reason. I would love the chance to actually race someone with some experience in a 170. Demonology and I will likely figure out a way to get together and race soon hopefully.

.11 on a .4 PT is better than my avg off a foot brake :LOL: I always chalked it up to delays in the car's systems getting to WOT. I'd usually see a .2xx or .3xx. Sportsman I'm much better.

2023 Dodge Demon 170

Most of the Dodge content has been negative from the 149 mph limiter "lawsuits" to the people walking the lot showing unsold cars from what I'm seeing.

I saw a couple youtubers that decided to pass on their 170 purchase because they were concerned about it's return on investment.
What's really positive at the moment? Dealers engaging in illegal activity, Dodge's brand image tarnished, every current Dodge vehicle other than the Durango tanking, Wrangler tanking, Grand Cherokee tanking, Wagoneer tanking, Demon values going down, hurricane engines pushed, top selling Hemi vehicles losing their engines, Stellantis prices up 50% since inception, several lawsuits planned in the background, production Charger Daytona looks disappointing, and Stellantis laying off tens of thousands since last year...

I'm sure a lot of that would be overlooked if Stellantis pulls a Ford move and say they will put a V8 engine in their next gen vehicles. Even a leak would turn heads for the best

That's the problem. There is 0 positive news coming from Stellantis.

We can't afford to lose no horses.

Sir, to tell a family secret, my grandma was Dutch.


I could probably recite the movie. I love Mel Brooks.
