This is something I have done a great deal of research on and I have a first gen 3.5 and a 300c with the 5.7. So lets get started, the hemi is way more powerful, however it limits throttle under 30 MPH even with TCS disabled, unless you have a factory scan tool that allows you to place the vehicle in field service mode, or a flash tuner. I like the handling ability of the intrepid, it is far better than the 300c especially in snow. I think the intrepid was one of the best all around cars ever made. It rounds fuel milage, performance, and size, better than 99% of the vehicles ever made at an affordable price range. It's easy to work on and parts are affordable. The 300c will spank it from a dead stop, if I keep it floored after 30 MPH it plants you in your seat, and it pulls like crazy to 150MPH. Now if I hammer down when already moving, a lot of time is wasted waiting for it to get rolling again, it goes really flat for awhile. If you look at performace numbers for 0-60 times ( 2005 300c 5.7 0-60 in 5.6 seconds to 2000 Magnum 3.5 R/T 7.8 seconds )and 1.4 mile times ( 2005 300c 5.7 1/4 mile 14.1 to 2000 Magnum 3.5 R/T 16.0) they tell the story. I usually figure one second is about 5-7 car lengths to gauge bumper to bumper positions on a 1/4 mile run. However I don't have the numbers for passing gear times, the 3.5 should be faster from 50-80 MPH than the HEMI. The new 3.6 pentastar is suppose to be matched with an 8 speed that will get it close to the 1/4 mile numbers of a 5.7 hemi six speed.

Listen kid. I don't hate on anyone, but I am known to call BS when I read it. I have owned 5 300Ms in my time, but I would never try to perpetrate total horseshit stories about them keeping up with a HEMI powered LX or DAK.

But hey if it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy thinking someone was actually racing you in a HEMI and you kept up.....by all means spew some more poop

I myself enjoy a nice heads up race from time to time, but the thrill of 30 seconds of adrenaline grows old.

You want to play with v8's? get them on a road track, and suddenly oodles of power and massive understeer can get trumped by featherweight civics.

And limiter from what I have found is about 196km/h

you people are FUNNY! Though it's so true! I said that my intrepid could beat a lambo earlier and technically it does but yeah. (Technically referring to its predecessor the Lamborghini Portofino concept)

Ha, those tires are new. Its all that Torque rippin them loose. Was going to attempt the Limiter disable tonight but Mother Nature decided we should finally have some snow. Took her long enough to bring it here anyways. When i do that, ill snap the video for you guys to see. And maybe my good friend 95intrepid99kid would be kind enough to upload that one too?

Didnt mean to start a Hemi war with this thread though hahaha.

This was one of the times i couldnt resist my need for speed. And the 35 seconds of pumping adrenaline was totaly worth it, But ya, its all about how your set up for what your doing. My limiter kicked in at 179 km/h.

well, from the 36 year old "kid" I can say this....maybe u don't know how to drive them? Or are afraid to push the pedal to the floor and hold it?? Driving a cushy 300m with all the toys, bells and whistles maybe put your brain into comfort mode and not race mode? I'm real glad you've owned 5 300m's...thats great for you....If u were in the car with me you'd understand what I mean...I never said I could beat them in an overall race...just that they didn't just pull away from me and destroy my R/T....thats all....usually they'd end up ahead for sure.....so call all the bs u want....i could care less...u certainly don't have alot else to do in crappy Ohio....lol

OK...I concede your superior driving skills and unparalleled lack of fear allowed you to "keep up"


And yeah all my M's were just too cushy to perform...

With the right combination of qualifiers anything is possible. I was once the best in the Western Hemisphere with only 4 qualifiers.

And English can be tricky. However, when "staying next to them", becomes "pretty much stay right with them", which in turn becomes "didn't just pull away from me and destroy my R/T", then my BS meter starts twitching too. So you were able to stay in sight?

Are any timing slips available to document your car's performance?
