So this brand new Hellcat has been parked in our condo complex for the last week, haven't seen the owner yet but my girl is stalking the cat.
Will let you know if I get the chance for a match-up. I know the hp difference but our car is really light so it would be worth a run.
There's a really nice 1-mile straight hill climb just down the street from our complex that would be nice.
(I actually showed that stretch of road in my resonator delete video)

Would be a nice match, you take him on the first turn. Rented a “Hemi” last year in Hawaii, wasn’t impressed, I think my Dad’s 1972 Buick Skylark 350 4BBL had more power.

Keep us informed, I say no contest, the cars a whale.

I love our voodoos, but from what I saw on the drag strips, those cats are pretty beastly.

I've seen more than one at the track running mid 12s to low 12s, so depending on the driver(s) it could go either way?

I've won many drag races versus cars 'faster' than mine. :cool:

Don't run it in a straight line race, it will kick you ass, on a twisty road, you will kick it's ass
I have a friend with a Hellcat, my last mustang a 2011 is way faster than my GT350, it ran 10.010 at the drag strip. My 2011 would beat him pretty easy at the drag strip, but on the street they were pretty equal.

The GT350 is a much better all around car than the Hellcat, but in a straight line the Hellcats are faster than a GT350, especially the automatics

Hey racer172 you win on looks alone. Four doors can never beat two. ;-)

You nailed it Don. I've encountered a couple of Hellcats and one Demon at track days. On a road course, the 350 will half-track the Mopars. They are drag strip cars and they are very good at that. Not beating up on Mopar, as the Viper ACR is a monster on a road course if driven properly.
