Good questions for a Hellcat forum...

With the ZL1 we have no issues with drivetrain reliability or grip until you get close to doubling the power...

Too new of a transmission to know.
And no one is leaning on these things yet

I highly doubt that. Those cars are going to be built tough, biggest problem will be unlocking the ECM.

Respect the hellcats guys! One might get you good some day. They are still sweet looking rides and American muscle but I'm very very bias to Camaro go figure. If its true about them being locked it will only be a matter of time before they are not!!!!!! Ohhh the grudge match's that will ensue after that will have differant outcomes.

Not true...............

Now the drive shaft with drag radials or slicks may be a different story......and that's with stock power

As you guy's may have seen in my previous thread my dad got a hellcat. Every week we both drive around town and get a lot of attention.

As far as speed goes the hellcat faster, but not that much faster. Both cars are very loud. Interior goes to the hellcat, with the nice performance pages on the touch screen. As far as handling goes the ZL1 wins that of course. Both amazing and fun cars!!!

That's not true, there are some hellcats in the 800-1000 range on the stock trans with no issues so far. There are already 4 aftermarket companys offering many upgrades for the hellcats.

You can get the Hellcat up to 850hp for around 6-8 grand!

Because high horsepower cars are no joke. If you don't respect the power you end up with these types of incidents.
