So C&D ran an 11.4@128 on a cold track with the A8. Pulled a .94g LA as well, not bad for a 4600# car on skinnies!

Dont worry about it, as my signature (a quote from here) my GT500 is pretty worthless.

A few tenths dont bother me at all. Get the manual.

Looks like it's a little bit too much power for some:

I'm disappointed they didn't set some lap times with Randy behind the wheel... I'm also surprised that the Hellcat was only 0.05 seconds faster on what was basically a straight line "road course"

I'm not sure you want to see it. Theres a reason why they are avoiding track test. The Hellcat Charger only handle with the likes of an EcoBoost Mustang, Subaru WRX and a BMW M235i around the streets of willow with Randy behind the wheel. The Challenger will result in the same maybe slower.

Exactly, but I want to see a number to see where it actually stands. This is 2015 where car tests no longer are just 0-60 & 1/4 mile, but also track times. They still did the 1/4 times for the Z/28, which obviously was not made for drag racing.

No it won't beat the ZL1 on a track where maybe .01% of owners will ever take their car regardless of brand, however it will beat the ZL1 on the street where most everyone with a performance car will play from time to time, and also at the strip which is a much more popular venue even for the ZL1.

Dodge didn't build this to set lap times, it built the car to be the King of the Streets/Strip.

The Hellcat was designed differently from the ZL1..plain and simple.

Besides, how often do you hear "Yeah you know what, lets set a time and day and we'll go to Road Atlanta/Willow Springs/Laguna and run and we'll see!" vs "Hey...XYZ Friday night drags are only 20 bucks..come and run your car instead of your mouth".

Because lets be honest...that is where the majority of American racing is done

Without an automatic transmission (it appears) the Hellcat's power is uncontrollable. So, with a manual trans, its not a given that the Hellcat can beat anything. Kind of sucks for guys that like to row the gears

Add to that, keeping a car between the yellow lines is pretty important on the street too.

Great engine, great sound, I'm sure it would be a hoot to drive

After driving a 2013 GT500 with "only" 662 HP...I cannot imagine what a car with almost that much at the wheels would be like.

Terrifying mixed with amazing I think...

I have a couple concerns with this video...not accusing MTC of being biased or paid off, just a couple things that rasies my eyebrows:

1. they used a manual ZL1 vs the auto...(Aren't the autos faster?...)

2. If you look closely, you can clearly see the brake lights of the ZL1 come on at 12.25, with what looks like to be at least 30-50 feet left....now I am not a drag racer or a track guy...but shouldn't you wait to apply the brakes until after you cross the finish line?

Either way, This hellcat looks and sounds sweet. I can't wait to find one on the road!

0-60 mph in 3.9 sec (automatic) or 4.0 sec (manual)

http://www.roadandtrack.com/new-cars...-camaro-zl1-2/

11.93 @ 116 MPH auto
11.96 @ 117 MPH manual

http://www.autoblog.com/2012/05/04/2...11-93-seconds/

The times quoted in the press release – 11.93 for the auto and 11.96 for the manual – were recorded on the stock Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar G:2 tires. According to Chevrolet, the team knocked about a tenth of a second off those numbers with the Mickey Thompson drag tires.

I lost you after "No, it won't beat the ZL1 on a track". The rest is attempting to justify the car doing one thing well. Have you ordered your hellcat yet? What color did you get?
