    4Nines reporting for duty!

    Yesterday was the most expensive oil change I've ever had! I took my 2014 Ram 2500 Cummins to Mac Haik for some routine maintenance and after I dropped the truck off I decided to cruise the lot and see what they had. A sales guy came up and asked me what I was looking for. I told him that I was just there for service, but I would look at a Hellcat if they had one. I said this jokingly as I had already seen the cars in the showroom and there was no Hellcat to be seen. To my surprise, he said that they had just rolled one off the truck. My next question was is it black? Please tell me it's not black? He smiled big and said yes, it's black. Ugh! Well, lets go see this beast then :)

    So today I am the proud owner of a 2015 Pitch Black M6 Challenger Hellcat, and boy does it feel good :cool:

    I know the Hellcat is known more for its straight line performance, but I'm looking forward to building mine for road racing. I have my NASA license and we have several great tracks here in Austin that I look forward to flogging the Hellcat around, Circuit of the Americas being one.

    Here's my Hellcat with my Hellhound:

    Congratulations 4Nines. Great choice of colour. Be interesting to see how you get on with two tonne of metal on the track. Hoping to let mine loose around Silverstone Grand Prix circuit for a few laps on Monday. I am testing my old 911 fia historic race car but I think they will let me have a few laps out in the Hellcat.

    Thank everyone! I'm really excited to research and see what all aftermarket parts there are available that can help me get this beast around a track. I may also use this as an excuse to get with some manufacturers to make some new parts to aid me in my goal if need be.

    Now I need to get all my black vehicles together for a family photo shoot :cool:

    I wonder if anyone has compared track times with an A8 vs M6? Traditional logic would say M6 but this A8 is fantastic. Would be curious to see which is faster on curves. We know the answer on the strip.

    I haven't seen any track comparisons, but maybe I can do a test and find out. Last time I was out at COTA there was two Hellcats there, but I wasn't there long enough to find out how well they ran. Hopefully I can make the next outing.
