    If there were a track anywhere near me, I wouldn’t have bought a V6.

    So you don’t think you car is worthy of some track time? Shoot, I took my 2009 SE 3.5L to the track as much as I could. Even though the track was 170 miles away. I always joined up with my challenger friends at the track. I guess I am going to have to find some of my old videos of mine at the track in Baton Rouge.

    WHY NOT

    Race what you drive.

    Doesn’t matter if it is 16 seconds Or 9 seconds
    Someone will always be faster than you
    And you will always be faster than someone else.

    It’s all about reaction time, and running faster each time you race.

    And having fun.

    You need to add this to your bucket list. Find the track closest to you and see when they may have a test and tune night. Some tracks by me will have a car show on a weekend and let participants do "fun runs" during the day. Runs with and without traction control, manually shifting, etc. You'll have a blast. No stress, just fun.

    You have two tracks a hell of a lot closer than I do.

    I think you're Chicken :)

    Just do it

    I've never even heard of Top End Dragways, and it's a half hour from here. Brainerd is an hour and a half away. What would be the purpose of going there, to see what my 1/4 mile time is? I put bigger wheels and tires on and lost half a second in my 0-60 time.

    Well there is your problem, I ran 17in drag radials on mine and it kicked up pretty good, better than the stock tires and rims. Plus I have driven over 2 hours to get to the track i like running at, there is one closer but the track prep is horrible.

    My goal was never to have a car I could race. I like how it looks and that’s what I am more concerned with.
