Default N/A vs 2015 Challenger R/T Hemi

So I was cruising down the local toll road, it's flat, straight and smooth. I typically cruise on this around 90-95. Well I attracted some attention of a newer Challenger that said Hemi on the side, but wasn't the SRT model. I started behind him and let him gun it and I followed suit
I eventually had to let off to keep from rear ending him
I chalked it up to lack of wind resistance due to drafting.

I tried to line up next to him but he stayed behind me this time, and wasn't budging. I took off at 70ish and he was hanging right there with me, yet I was slowly walking away. By the time I was up to about 120, he was a good 5-6 lengths behind me

On paper this should be a pretty good run, but with him having a slight advantage. Either way it was fun and I always enjoy beating up on V8s

I walked the SRT on a freeway in mexico. He came up behind on my ass as to say move, so I dropped into 3rd and floored it, left his ass behind nicely! Did this several times and in the end he must have been pissed because I got a ricer fly by.

Im boosted, 400 rwhp

I think the S2000 is a dog over 85 MPH. I'm surprised the Challenger was actually slower.

A tuned S2000 isn't bad over 85, it bumps to 115-120 then

I agree with this, my AP2 with the gern-tune on flashpro, full 3" exhaust and 8lb flywheel was pretty quick for an N/A s2k. I'd hit the toll road, roll on the throttle and before I knew it I'm going 110-115. The F22 is a beast

Looks a lot like the mustang vids I've seen lately.
