Comments - Challenger SRT8 Races a Helicopter

Published: Oct 17, 2012
Description: There's little question that the Dodge Challenger - especially in SRT8 trim with the 392 Hemi under hood - is a monstrously fast car. But is it faster than a helicopter? It's a question few ...

Yes, I vote for the Challenger too.....it's just too sexy.
Aaron Crisp Oct 17, 2012
And who wins in the looks department? Challenger... All. Day. Long.
Justin Brest Oct 17, 2012
I highly doubt you "destroyed" a srt8 with "ease" with your standard vett. Even if that was true, I can guaranty that the challenger had ALOT better ride home then you did

Challenger for the win!
Conrad Reeves Oct 17, 2012
It's still a sports car... People don't usually buy challengers to break speed records, I mean they weigh over 4000 pounds. I'll still take a challenger over a vette because they look awesome.

Corvettes are $50k. They only get more expensive with higher models like the new convertible 427, z06 and zr1. Those are a lot more powerful than a standard coupe or convertible.
Conrad Reeves Oct 17, 2012
Oh really? That's surprising. An 80k sports car beating a 45k muscle car? You must be so proud.

SRT8 Challengers are "fast" cars, but not "monstrously fast". I destroyed a 392 in my Corvette with ease. And the funny thing is that the people that drive these actually think they stand a chance when they get behind me. Comical.
Description: Previous showdowns have been pretty equally matched between aircraft and automobile, so the outcome of this race is anyone's guess. You'll just have to watch for yourself to find out. (And d...

That pilot is GOOD. Well done my friend.
Khalid Alsayed Oct 18, 2012
Hahahahah good job pilot
Anthony J. Mitchell Oct 18, 2012
Damn, I missed the bonus race at the end. I hate when that happens.
Grant Paquin Oct 17, 2012
Very cool video
Tre Von Chambers Oct 17, 2012
Is it just me or is the go kart faster than the challenger??/:)
Ryan Spencer Oct 17, 2012
3 things: not surprising, that car kicks ass, and that guy can pilot the sh*t out of a helicopter.

When I read the title, I expected it to be saying "....and lost" at the end when I clicked on it

Did I just see Camaro seats in a Challenger? 
Carlton Salmon Oct 17, 2012
That looked like lots of fun.
Seth Pettman Oct 17, 2012
That's so cool!! The guy in the copter must have been having a riot lol
Dylan Bruder Oct 17, 2012
Those karts can really get up and go
Matthew Crighton Oct 21, 2012
This is such a sexy car. It's too bad it isn't lighter and more powerful. Mabey it could keep up with the 'stang and the camaro
Adam Munoz Oct 20, 2012
And no one comments on how badass the chally looks
Justin Brest Oct 19, 2012
the hemi, that is...
Justin Brest Oct 19, 2012
no man. the v8 can get better mpg actually. the 5.7 has cylinder displacement so it cuts it down to 4 cyl when your not stomping on it. the most I've got out of my rt is 32mpg on the highway which is a lot higher then advertised.
Author Norman R. Colson Oct 18, 2012
Possible, I'm still looking though but part of me wants a v6 cause it's decent on gas... V8 chugs a lot...
Justin Brest Oct 18, 2012
why buy new when you can buy new to you? I'm sure you could at least find a used r/t for around 20k.
Author Norman R. Colson Oct 18, 2012
*correction. Handbrake! LOL
Author Norman R. Colson Oct 18, 2012
We're still on that? I'd prefer auto now go forget to put your ebrake on and peace out.
Jörgen Nilsson Oct 18, 2012
And you can't handle stick shift, right?
Author Norman R. Colson Oct 18, 2012
It's a base model I can't afford an srt.
Miguel Jimenez Oct 17, 2012
@Author get a 6speed, you won't regret it!
Author Norman R. Colson Oct 17, 2012
Like a boss all I need is 20k!!!! And then it will be all mines, what a beast!
Matt Sutton Oct 18, 2012
Those shifter karts are very fast.
Matty Michaels Oct 17, 2012
Shelby, I think it's photoshopped
Shelby Cassandra Oct 17, 2012
That's a weird Michigan plate.
Luka Geo Oct 17, 2012
Omg kart had pretty much the same timing w challenger
Matt Sutton Oct 17, 2012
