430 miles on the odometer already!
Battery in the back? Talk about a short power cable for amps.
Which model has the Viper engine?
Sorry for the question about your friend! I didn't realize, until now, that you were just shy of 19.340duster said:the Viper has the viper motor...
the battery makes for good weight distribution and more traction, **** audio
that is their test drive mule magnum, thats why there are so many miles.
thats my mom in the stereo...and next to the magnesium magnum
there is plenty of room under the hood for it...but 40 lbs in the back helps alot...why do you think thats the first thing anyone does when they want to make their RWD car hook better? its the cheapest way to do it...sure, there is alot of other weight in the car, but the 40 from that battery helps quite a bit for traction, since its the equivalent of a bag of sand that people tend to use as wellpunk_32 said:Sorry for the question about your friend!

As for the battery in the back, I don't see how a battery would affect weight distribution that much. IMHO, I think it's because of all the other stuff under the hood and they got tired of people complaining about the battery in the Trep being hard to get to.
Yea 34 is getting up there, the one that I drove was loaded down except for Auto Climate Control (which I could care less) and a Navigation system (getting lost is half the fun anyways ) Had everything else though, it was 31K for it.bongobobny said:I have to agree with the comments on the handling of the Magnum. I took the R/T up to about 70-75 on an entrance ramp and man oh man, that thing acted like it was glued to the road. Ride was extremely smooth but I only drove 4 lane roads. Although not quite as nimble as the 426's and 440's of the muscle car era, throtle response was excellent. I hardly noticed any understeer (maybe a slight hint of it) or oversteer. Seat seemed very comfortable. 34K price tag was frightening...
One of the biggest adjustments was getting used to the new version of Autostick. Unlike our autostick, there is no separate position for autostick. Normal driving position is the same position as for autostick. Also took a bit to get used to the fact that there is 5, not 4 gears. In reality I only put 3-4 miles on it (which went by very quickly) but I was favorably impressed to say the least. Also of interest is the fact that the back windows go all the way down. How long has it been since that hapened. Rear visibility is greatly improved over the Intrepid when backing up, but could still use some improvement. Although stylish, those narow "slit" wundows don't give you the big picture.
Bottom line, would I buy one?? Probably, but $34K??? Makes me think twice...
The old Hemi's handled like trucks. They were O.K. in a straight line. When a corner came up you started to sweat. My old 72 386 Charger turned like it was on ice. The hemis were just as bad.Don Hardy said:Hey bongo - you are wrong. These HEMI's are quicker than the old ones .... unless you had slicks on it. They never ever could hook well enough to keep up with these.
