Default 2009 Dodge Charger SRT8 and Viper SRT10 Formula D article

Hey everyone,

Drifting is sport that is slowly on the rise, though some may argue it has gone as far as it can go. It is a niche racing sport undeniably. How do you guys feel about it? Does Dodge belong in it? Certainly, the Viper has done very well in it for some time. Can the Challenger step into the role of Dodge drifting specialist?


If you missed it, you can find the article here: http://www.dodgeforum.com/articles/2...formula-d.html

Thanks

Hi there. I've been snooping the site for a while now but thought I'd join today to post a comment.

I'm a long time Mopar man and I'm also a big drift fan. I recently came across this site, and it seems that your front page information about drifting isn't very accurate.

I don't think that there were any Chargers in the field, and I don't think that the crowd saw much tire destroying mayhem from the Challenger as its debut has been delayed until at least the third event, per autoblog...

Also, when did Dodge start making a 6.1L V10?

Hey MuscleGeek,

Thanks for the heads up; an edit was made, though I don't believe there was a mention of the Charger being used at this particular race.

there were a few typos that needed fixed...thanks for the heads up muscle geek!

i think that once the drift challenger is finished and ready for competition, that it will at least get a ton of attention. i saw it at SEMA last year, and it was a great looking car, and its been fully setup by mopar and nuformz to be a great drift car, so there is really no excuse for it not kicking some ***...
