Me and my friend run a couple rolls.
My small 3.2 v6 making roughly 220hp stock vs 3.5L HO V6 making 250-255hp
TIME TO ANSWER SOME QUESTIONS:
My only mistake here was mentioning 2005 when the car was indeed a 2004.
There was duct tape on the mirror. Unfortunately, my friend had BOTH mirrors knocked and snapped, and we couldn't find an 04 mirror to repair it, because 99-01 are the same, but this specific mirror is a dealer only part.
I know this guy personally, so he did know we were racing. He's in the military and has since left me the car tofix until he comes back from Germany.
The only thing wrong with this car is the Cat Converter and the mirrors. And trust me, that's not why it got dusted. So I don't want to argue on that one.
The real reason this 300m got dusted like this is because this transmission has an insane amount of loss by the time it hits the wheels, turning 250hp to roughly 160ish. The 300m runs 16s stock on an actual drag strip, where as the CTS runs 15.6 stock.
The first run, he was ready. On the second run, I didn't think he was ready, so I held out and waited. Regardless of how much "traffic" you see, please save the tears. Everyone with a car has done this at some point. My friend only had a week to enjoy himself before he was shipped back out for another 2 years, so blame me if I wanted to have fun during the small time I spent with a friend.
Before I had my CTS, I had a Blazer, which this 300m used to constantly smoke after about a block of keeping up.
So sorry to all the LHS Forum guys who have a tear in their eye over this. This is what would happen if a 300m stock lined up with a CTS stock. Just be glad I had the 3.2 V6, and not the 3.6 V6, or worse, the LS2 / LS6 CTS-V.
Fashioned by Function - Chrysler Airflow
The development and testing of the revolutionary, streamline designed
The Chrysler Airflow is an automobile produced by the Chrysler Corporation
from 1934 to 1937. The Airflow was one of the first full-size American
production car to use streamlining as a basis for building a sleeker
automobile, one less susceptible to air resistance. Chrysler made a
significant effort at a fundamental change in automotive design with the
Chrysler Airflow, but it was ultimately a huge commercial failure.
Limit Pushing - Chrysler 300m Top Speed Test (Almost hit a truck)
(Limited: 111 mph)
If you watch the end of the video, you get to see us almost hit a truck
while driving at about 100 mph.
The Chrysler 300M:
The Chrysler 300M was produced from 1999 to 2004 after Chrysler's revival
of the 300 name. Chrysler's goal of the 300M was to compete with similar
sporty sedan imports which was a market not yet probed by other American
auto makers. This time the 300 would be FWD with a 255 hp V6 engine car in
the LH platform. This engine would be the only one available for the 300M.
It was shared with the Plymouth Prowler and a limited edition R/T variant
of the second-generation Dodge Intrepid. Rated at 253 HP, and 255 lb-ft of
torque, it was connected to the 42LE, a four-speed automatic transmission
with Autostick, which allowed manual selection of gears. The 300M was much
more of a luxury car as opposed the older Chrysler letter cars.
