2015 Dodge Challenger SRT® 392 – Excels in Superior Performance
Defining superior performance can mean the Best of the Best. It can mean reaching height no one or nothing else has achieved. The New 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT® by Fiat Chrysler LLC has reached that defining moment of being classified as having reached the top in the top in craftsmanship, technology, and especially superior performance. With the driver in mind this car can be driven on the street during the week and then win at the track on the weekends.
Speed is not everything. Performance is everything. We often confuse speed with performance. It is human nature when traveling as fast as the car will go to think that it has reached its maximum performance. This is not necessarily true, reaching top speed in the shortest amount of time does not mean the vehicle is performing at it highest level. If the car is performing at its highest performance then the speed will come a lot faster and with less strain on the drive train and certainly the driver. The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT® 392 unleashes 485 horsepower with an astonishing 475 LB-FT of torque in a naturally aspirated HEMI® engine This performance deserves the highest attention and excitement to the driver and the thrill of commanding the best in a street machine. When we put it all together that’s 179 MPH track speed and in the 12 second range in a quarter mile. That’s excitement in a Street Racing Technology machine.
Performance is also improved by the way the other parts of the drive train and structure of the frame and body work together to achieve the overall way the car handles. Control of this massive engine by the driver is accomplished by a new and robust TorqueFlite® eight-speed automatic transmission that features rev-matching when down shifting. For those who want total control of the transmission and like to manually shift gears the Viper-like Tremec six-speed manual gearbox with a beefed up clutch will excited the most harden driver.
Another important part of the vehicle are the breaks. Standard breaks just are not enough to safely unleash the forward motion of such a powerful machine. The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT® 392 is equipped with the latest in breaking technology. The standard breaks features the massive Brembo® 15.4-inch two pace slotted and vented front rotors. These rotors are paired with Brembo® six-piston calipers and 13.8 inch rotors in the rear with two piece front rotors. When breaking from high speeds this breaking system will provide maximum control and stopping power.

Learning to Drive a Willys Jeep
Sometimes we sit around with an idle mind and start to reminisce about the past. We are prawn to let our mind wonder and somehow drift back in time. This happened to me a few days ago and I cannot get my mind to stop thinking about how I first learned to drive. It has been quite a few years ago and the details are sketchy to say the least. The more I think about this event of long ago the more I remember.
Learning to Drive
Living on a farm in East Texas and sometimes getting in trouble as most 14 year old boys tended to do, I would run down in the pasture and see if I could catch a young calf, throw him down like the ropers would do at the Rodeo and then run back to the barn before the Mama Cow could catch me. One afternoon after returning to the barn I hear my Dad laughing at my antics. Thinking I was in trouble again, I started laughing with him in hopes of keeping him happy. As the next part of this conversation unfolded I became more and more amazed at what my Dad said. He asked if I was ready to start learning to drive. Naturally with excitement my answer was YES! Well Dad was not one to stop his daily work and teach me anything; I always had to learn by myself. In later life this turned out to be the biggest lesson of all. Since those early days I never hesitated tackling any job just because I did not know how.
His next words were “why don’t you back that old WWII Willys Jeep out of the barn and learn to drive?” That was all I needed. Mom was always making me walk to the country store about a half mile away for something she needed to cook with and this was chance to get my driver’s license early so I could help her. Back in those days a hardship driver’s license could be obtained at 14 if there was a need.
Hard Learned Lessons
I had driven the tractor for a few years now and had a good idea about how to steer straight and turn properly, but I was not ready for that clutch. I am even thankful today I did not tear a door off its hinges backing out of the barn the first time. I would let the clutch out and it would jump and die, finally I ribbed up the engine and released the clutch and almost ran over two calves before I got it stopped.
I continued to drive the Jeep around the pasture every day after getting home from school until I felt comfortable driving it on the road. Dad then rode with me to ensure I could drive properly on our country road a few times before making the decision to let me drive the family car before taking me to take my license test. How happy I was when I passed my driving test and receive a license (this was before the days of drivers permits) to drive although I nearly failed the parallel parking test. From then on I have been driving on a daily basis. My first adventures in a Willis Jeep taught me the essentials of driving and those lessons are still with me today.
