    Goes to show how important weight is! Obviously totally different classes of cars, but all the talk about the Hellcat does drive me nuts as it is talked about like it is unstoppable and unbeatable. It is a very cool car and I'd love to have one, but physics gets in its way of beating cars like the Corvette just as physics gets in the way of the Corvette taking 4 people out to the store like the Hellcat can

    707 HP vs 510HP (with canned tune, headers and CAI maybe another 50HP) I continuously question the ability of Dodge to get power to the ground. I beat the hell outta a '15 392 Chally and I was without headers, but did run an aggressive tune

    In your typical 0-60 or 80mph the Stingray will typically win stock. The Hellcat does not put power to the ground, but when it does they seem to run low 11's.

    I'd like to see them race while rolling at, say, 45 MPH. The Dodge can't get it's power down properly from a dead stop.

    Cause that's the way a Drag race normally goes. Come on meng..

    The Dodge has l about 200 more HP. He should be able to at least catch up. If the Camaro SS pulls this ... Well I dunno what to say

    And what happened to this Z06? Let me guess, heat soak?



    I'm sorry I love the Z, but that Helcat engine is a serious powerhouse. And when equipped with the 8 Speed, it's a true monster.

    Sticky tires and those fat Dodges are fast as ****.

    You're out of your mind if you think a Corvette can beat a Hellcat in all conditions. Rolling race won't be close.

    Not to mention, that Corvette was tuned. It wasn't even stock.

    It was stock though. 707 HP is a tremendous amount of power, but it wasn't tuned or modded. It's not fair to compare modded cars to stock cars.

    I mean, it wins. But it's a bit like showing a ATS-V winning against a 550i or something. One's really a different sort of car. It's nothing against the Vette. In terms of handling and general track performance, it's one of the world's finest. But the Dodge is a larger, two row coupe.

    And when comparing stock (even against a Z06, let alone the standard car), the Hellcat is a monster and we can't take that away from Dodge. They've built they're own sort of racing machine.

    You're comparing a tuned 2 seat sports car to a stock 5 seat bruiser. Let that sink in for a minute.

    I can go and tune and twin turbocharge my Envoy so it'll beat a C7 Corvette at the local dragstrip.

    But what did I prove by doing so?
