Charger R/T Dominates M3, Scat Pack Shows Off for the Crowd
YouTuber’s 5.7-liter Hemi has been modified with a Greene Racing camshaft, giving this poor M3 no chance at victory.
The video above comes to us from the R/T Life YouTube channel and it features a few different Dodge Charger sedans exercising their Mopar muscles. This includes an R/T with a 5.7-liter Hemi taking on a BMW M3 and a Scat Pack with a gadget that is being enjoyed by a handful of different drivers, along with all of the onlookers on the side of the road.
Hitting the Road
The video begins with the host explaining that he lost his day job while waiting for some friends to roll up, talking in front of his B5 Blue Charger R/T. A short time later, two other Chargers roll up with a BMW M3 in tow and they all hit the road.
While cruising down the highway, the M3 takes a few shots at the Charger. For those wondering, this 5.7-liter Hemi has been modified with a Greene Racing camshaft, Hooker headers, a few other small items and a Greene Racing tune, so it likely makes far more than the stock power. On the first hit, the Dodge appears to get the stronger start, jumping out to a lead that the BMW cannot overcome. On the second hit, the Charger jumps out to a lead of about a half-car, but the M3 begins to close at high speed until both cars lift.
Certainly not beatings, but for a Charger R/T to beat and get out ahead of the legendary BMW M3 shows the performance capabilities of the 5.7-liter Hemi when it has been worked and tuned.
Test Drives in the Scat Pack
After the highway cruise, the cars stop in some secluded area for some pictures and a chance to let a Charger Scat Pack stretch its legs away from public traffic.
A Camaro V6 owner and a Charger Daytona each take turns rocketing up a short stretch of deserted road near what appears to be an old factory driveway. The purpose of these runs is to give the Daytona owner a feel for the Pedal Commander in another 392 Hemi-powered car, which sharpens the electronic throttle, while simply showing the Camaro owner what he is missing out on in not driving a modern Mopar muscle car.
For the rest of us, the second portion of the video is really just a chance to hear and see a Scat Pack Charger roar up and down a desolate stretch of pavement, so crank up your speakers and enjoy.
