for what it's worth...I could beat my buddies wrx with my old xjr which was rated at 390 hp 400 tq. So the srt8 is more powerful, and probably about the same weight. Like everyone else is saying, it'll come down to the launch and driver. My xjr was hit or miss on a launch, no lsd meant it would break a tire loose very easily. 13.5 was my best in the 1/4 in it.
