    What opinions are out there about how a 6-speed would do with drag radials in light of the recently posted A8 time of 10.4? It seems safe to say that a 6-speed could go low 11s with a similar setup/conditions. How hard would it be to get 10s and would it be foolish to even try such a feat in the 6-speed (or would you likely blow out the tranny)?

    I know the Vipers and Z06 vettes out there are doing some 10s and 11s just fine with the same M6 transmission, but they don't have all of the extra weight to get moving like the Hellcat does.

    Im thinking to see 10s with a 6 speed would require some REALLY good smelling salts for Ronnie Sox...

    If it happens, it will definitely be in the technique of the hole shot!!! No come backs from a sh!t start with the manual I suspect. If it does, that is definitely a hell of of a driver...

    I'm sure it'll happen, that a 6M will hit under 11 seconds with DR's. Give the people some play time to get a feel for her and be amazed.

    I agree... it's only a matter of time for 10's in a M6... it might require a clutch upgrade and a perfect pass... the only question is who will be first!;)

    Upgraded clutch and other mods, well then sure you will see 10's... Was someone seriously doubting that?

    I want to see stock clutch with only drag radials pull into the 10's..... :)

    No doubt it can be done--an auto isnt a full second faster.

    Well, let's see it then! Stock clutch, M6 with DR in the 10's....[​IMG]

    11.19 is the best I've seen... You have an M6 right? Show us how it's done!
