    The first run I was trying to be quick, the 2nd was for fun. I did a run at 500 hp and was 2 seconds faster... but where is the fun in that? I was out to have fun and not be competitive. I've been autocrossing for about 9 years and have received a trophy in several classes. Yes I know how NOT competitive a hellcat is at autocross. My normal autocross car is down for maintenance and I was wanting to run.

    Nicely done. I did not see any cones flying and I bet everyone appreciated the aggressive demonstration. So how much different did the times look when you added the skidding?

    About 5 seconds. It's definitely not the fast way. People always enjoy it. I do it towards the end of the day as it's pretty hard on tires, even in the 240.

    Who says you can't autocross a Hellcat?! Might not be the fastest around the course but I'm sure it is fun!

    Nice !
    The autocrosses I've been to don't have any money for prizes so it's all about fun as far as I know!
    Hellcats=fun
    Miatas=lame

    I disagree, if you can drive you can be competitive in anything man. Depending on your autocross course. The optima street car race gives a lot of points for auto cross, and there are challengers and chargers there. Most autocross places also have classes, If you are not competitive in the stock class it would surprise me.
