That's what I mean

Let me clarify

Maybe a Z06 will stay with it or beat it, but my point was about the insane power it seems to make and that small mods give it a lot more and that it is even underated at 707hp.

Can Chevy or Ford beat the Hellcat monster

I have read a few things which lead me to believe (duh) that the Hellcat is such a monster that Chevy and Ford will have a tough time offering a competitive product. Your thoughts.

My 3.5 Cents

I doubt that GM will miss the opportunity to put out a super ZL1. It may not be called a ZL1, but it will come. A 650 to 750 Hp car with all the extra new goodies will be irresistible to the current...
