There was one (HellCat) at Irwindale this past Thursday Night..... Great tire smoker... Didnt put up any good numbers....

Not what I was hopping to see.... I was under the impression, that there was some better thought that had gone into this project?????

NHRA 10.8 on drag radials. Is that a Hellcat or just a SRT ?

The one shown at Irwindale Does not have the Hellcat `hood !!

Not to sure I'm impressed by any of this. Sometimes I think we need to get back to the "days of the Roadrunner." AKA 340 Darts and such. These new toys are expensive. Most of us that haven't made a living raping our employees to get rich can't afford them

I'm very curious how the aftermarket industry will support this car.

I'm guessing it's driver issues. I've never seen a Viper run quicker than 13.10 in person either, doesn't mean they're slow though. Put me behind the wheel, then we'll see how quick it really is (or if I can blow it up!).

you can put all kinds of power in something,if you cant engineer it to hook it to the ground youre up in smoke. mayybe a feathered foot to that gas pedal I might be able to get some numbers too. But like the viper thing. Hammer down and like he said no real numbers.
