I bought a 1320 Challenger in July. Starting to cool off and I am taking it to the track some. Anyone else racing theirs?

Bought mine in May - as soon as I got to 500 miles it was on the track runs 12.00's at 114mph - no mods - its a blast to run the NMCA events! - They do not like the heat or humid air and will slow quite a bit

Nice! I will look for you there. I can't race in it but will do some testing during the "fun runs". Look for a blue 1994 Dakota!

IF I make it will just do the fun runs, I MIGHT take the 68 Charger instead.

I'm match racing a pal of mine who has one on Saturday at Keystone, best of three. Kaleb has gone 11.60s with his, I generally run around 10.90, 11 flat with my 65 Dodge Hemi Nostalgia Super Stock. My 65 is probably one of the most genuine equipped Nostalgia cars in the country....426 cubic inches, 11 to one compression, ancient Racer Brown cam, cross ram, "J" converter, and Super Stock Springs. No technology newer than about 1969, when I bought it. It's kind of an old vs new thing for a deal Keystone calls "Grudgement Day"....it will be fun. I'm going to spot him .6, it is for grins. He's a good kid, and it seems to have generated a lot of interest! Kaleb was runnerup this year at the NMCA "Hemi Shootout" for Gen III Hemis in Norwalk, Ohio. It will be fun!

I happened to race alongside one about a year ago. He ran 11.98 @ 114.07 mph. I don’t know if it was bone stock or not, but i thought it may be.

I haven’t got to run the 1/4 mile yet. My best 1/8 mile is a 7.64 at 92 mph.

I was pitted next to one at the Moparty. The guy that owned it said it had been 11.52 IIRC, it had a single Kirkey seat and no carpet. He said the engine was stock, no tune.

I don’t put much faith in the calculators. My
2018 Mustang ran a 11.92 with a 7.78 1/8th.

Raced my 1320 at the Mopar event in Lebanon Valley this fall. I drove 3 hours to get there and ran a 12.16 first run down the track. The car is completely stock with full interior. I am impressed! I will be an old muscle car until I die but, the new iron is hard to beat! This kind of performance with a warrantee and 23MPG to boot. One thing I found was that every other run after the first run the car lost a tenth. However, my last run of the day the car picked back up after a long cool down period. Anybody else have the same experience?

Yes the cars are very heat sensitive. I have a small fan that I cool the intake down between rounds, seems to help. I think an e85 conversion would help consistency a lot. How are your reaction times?

Wow, they are all over the map. I found that I had to try and leave between the second and third bulb! If I left on the third bulb my lights were in the 200 range. I would go red on the second bulb but, going between the two reaction times were in the 20's. This fly by wire thing is crazy. I thought that this car would be a deadly bracket beast however, I see that it would not be that simple.

i have always wondered how the "drive by wire" gas pedals reacted when used, especially at the strip.
is there a "tune" available to make this system react faster ?

supposedly the pedal commander solves the issue, it cleans the electrical pulse from the pedal to throttle body.

i have heard from some that it is hocus pokus and others swear by them .

i have not tried anything

I sure like street racing my 1320. its so fun


Thank you
