I am a Caliber R/T owner and believe me, I am as proud as any of my beautiful ride.

However, the GTP comes with a Supercharged V8 and a sport-tuned transmission.

The 2.4L CVT is many nice things, but a straightline racer it is not.

I still believe you and maybe my R/T has a lot of breaking in to do. I have less than 300 miles on it currently and I do not see it outrunning many cars right now.

Hopefully, as stated elsewhere, the break-in will give this car a much needed shot of *****.

Last time I checked, GTP's had 3.8's.....just like the Bonneville I just got rid of
And not all of them are supercharged.

Well Mr. Shumacher...

I have about 330 miles on my R/T and really felt compelled to see how this car behaves in your "slapstick" mode.

From the launch, the car wasnt insanely fast, however, the shift from 2 to 3 and 3 to 4 was very, very pleasing and surprising. I felt some serious acceleration there and well, was happy

If nothing else, this car is a huge sleeper from a roll. Maybe once I get my miles in, I will have a go with some cars and see how it stacks up!
