    Same here. I'm just glad that they are leapfrogging each other. It was way to long for one of the big 3 to finally surpass the original Hellcat.

    The Camaro is nice but I would still take the Dodge and its Hellcat.

    Do you think we'll ever see the Hellephant 426 in a production car?

    Put them on the track, the Camaro will embarrass both of them even being down 110HP versus the GT500 and 147HP versus the Challenger.

    It's telling that Ford isn't even going to take the GT500 to the Nürburgring: https://www.motor1.com/news/301700/f...-times-shelby/

    It's a good thing there are Head to Head Competitions like this, to compare how good GM would be at different things that are not compared!

    I could get three turbo Souls for that money and still have enough left over to go for an ice cream cone.

    Luckily, there are other head to head comparisons:

    https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews...amaro-zl1-1le/

    "the more affordable ZL1 1LE manages to match or surpass the Shelby's performance while offering a much longer list of features" - for $19K less, as tested

    "The ZL1 is more stable, and it puts its power down better with its wider rubber, a more sophisticated traction-control system, and an excellent electronic limited-slip differential."

    "it's the quarter-mile that really matters. In that race, it's essentially a dead heat. A tire-smoking, fighting-for-traction dead heat, with the Mustang's 11.4-second run at 132 mph just besting the Camaro's time of 11.5 seconds at 124 mph."

    I think so. I can’t imagine an OEM going through that much trouble and expense just to build 100 crate units.

    How can these tests be so different in their results. In the video I posted, every single run had the Mustang continuing to pull away from the other two all the way to the end. I love the Hellcat, but I need more than just straight line. Camaro may be hard to beat on the track, but I would never find that out if I owned one. Mustang seems to get it all right.

    Probably like the "how much do she tow?" bench race.

    How many here have run the ring in the last 20 years, in their daily driver? I'll wait for an answer.

    ... And then there's different drivers and different reaction times and such with three different vehicles going at it like this. FWIW that is.
