Also a combo of brands can be a great sucess...who remembers the Buick GNX with McLaren tech in it? Thing was a beast.
Doesnt really give any info on the Cuda, just tell us that it might have some Alfa parts? Well i don't think Dodge isnt going to **** this one up, rumors are the new Cuda will replace the Challenger. I give em hope.
Seems like an odd remake. I did the challenger. I think it looks great and is packing some ok power. However sitting in it has you looking at mainly hood and not road. If they do remake the Barracuda.. I hope they please give it a traditional gearbox.. ya know, where YOU do the work. I also hope they give it good power and keep it a two door. By good, i'm talking 320whp/tq+ and RWD.
They will most likely botch this like the Charger simply to get sales. The charger was a complete let down and now you see morons all day long with "22's" on them.
All you ever did see was the hood in those historic whales. Ever ride in '68 RoadRunner or Charger?
"The 3.6 makes 292 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, 42 more ponies and 10 more lb-ft than were produced by the old cars 3.5-liter V-6."

True they are all whales.
How much power is lost through the trans? Probably pushing 260/230 on a 4162lb car? Not slow by any means.. but who doesn't want more power?
I wonder how that 300s handles.. like a boat?
All automotive HP ratings are AT THE WHEEL, since the early 70's. NET. 'Vettes up until about '92 had less HP.
Not to veer off topic with this thread but.. Are you positive on this? Not saying your wrong. Every dyno reading I've seen almost always has a power loss. Generally between 10-20% for RWD/FWD and 15-25% for AWD.
