    For those who have their hellcats and have had some time to mess with them have you figured out how to achieve the fastest 0-60? I have done very little testing and was just wondering if anybody has figured out how to launch the hellcat perfectly without any tire spin.

    This..... He didn't make a 10.8 pass. He and his shop are hacks. No where close to the top of their field.
    As for the 0-60 times.... If a current owner can't get their car in the 3's, try using the 500 HP fob and leave about 2500 rpm. I can consistently get my 392 in the mid threes.

    I agree HC1. I think Rawlings is one of those "Feminine hygiene cleaners" or whatever is was that Tammy mentioned a few weeks back lol

    If you have an A8, start in 2nd gear.. roll into the throttle until the tires hook and stomp it. This is how Motor Trend got 0-60 in 3.6/3.7 (can't remember exact number) on unprepared asphalt.

    Ummm, what... that Richard guy is only a tv face, I would never let him near my car, but on a side note, I was at a mopar meet last night and showed off the hellcat to everyone( they loved it) and I talked to the people running the meet said that they can get ralph giles to sign my car. how sweet is that.

    I used to love the show too. I thought the guy was hilarious! But he's getting more and more arrogant and I'm finding it hard to watch

    Too cool! I bet that was a fun meet up! I love having the only Hellcat in town, people follow me just so they can ask me about it when I park. I had a FedEx guy follow me to the gym parking lot on Friday to talk about it. I always pop the hood for them so they can see the HELLCAT! Lol;)
