    There are news reports saying an automatic gearbox software update will drop the 0-60 on the challenger hellcats to 3.3 seconds. Does anyone know if this is confirmed or just speculation and if we will be able to update the 2015s software if so?

    I saw RS had responded in a previous thread saying he hadn't heard anything about it.

    Negative on any source outside a simple google search with articles that popup which is why I was asking.

    "The performance will be on par with the rest of the cars in its class, so the top speed will most likely hit 200 MPH while the 0 to 60 MPH time for the 8-speed automatic transmission will drop to 3.3 seconds thanks to new gearbox software." Is that quote that comes up in a couple of different articles that pop.

    It's in another thread here. Sounds like BS. If the car picked up 0.4 seconds from 0-60, then what's it do in the 1/4 now?

    No author, no qoutes, no sources = BS
