    i drive a m6 challenger hellcat and a buddy of mine has a c6 z06 with a couple of bolt ons. I dont think theres a better car to throw you in your seat than the hellct but my buddy insists that the z06 will "throw you in your seat" harder than the hellact. Has anyone driven both?? Would love to prove him wrong because both of our cars are in storage right now.

    This is interesting to me. I took my dad for a ride and he's telling me how my Uncle had a Road Runner back in the early 70s and how fast that car was. So I floored it at about 30 and let off at about 95. I don't think he was that impressed because asked how much I gave it. Wondering if the newer suspensions give the ride a more tame feel almost reducing that raw power feeling?

    I have owned 3 Z06's and currently own the 15 Stingray Z51 A8 with 465HP. My 2008 Z06 was a manual with 505HP.
    I can say from my present car and previous car no way is it the hard pull push u experience with the Hellcat. And sure the Corvette gives you a nice pull kick but not the TORQUE. Just ride in your buddies car and have him ride in yours. Truth will be told:rolleyes:

    So get out his accelerometer and compare the G-Forces displayed. No need to discuss it any further. Just make sure the road has the same amount of snow on it and remember to reset the gauges before the test-off.

    You are exactly correct, the torque (and traction of course) will rule this one. It should be fun, someone should do it. If it was summer we would up here this weekend. Unfortunately we could run a Jeep SRT8 against any of you right now ....AND WIN!

    It probably won't throw you in the seat harder, but if you ever race him, be careful. Bolt ons C6 Z06's are nasty from a roll. It's definitely, fast, but probably not as fast the Hellcat.

    I had the enjoyment of a spirited side by side with a brand new Z06 on I-95 coming home from Florida . Probably the most Beautiful Blue Vette I have ever seen. Especially in the rearview mirror . lol .....I'd call a feel out more than a true what do you have ; but the Cat pulled from 5th on. Ended with exchanged thumbs up and very apparent relief from my wife and his female companion . :)

    At 3100lbs the Zed O6 is a formidable adversary...Basement 11's on a tire and a good driver. As much as I love the HC, I can also give credit where it's due.

    If you get pushed by an elephant you're certainly going to feel it more than if you get pushed by a cheetah. :)

    I agree with this 100%. I know for a fact that my Hellcat is (a lot) faster than my old blown 2006 Charger R/T. But the R/T felt like it was pulling a lot harder and had more of a head snap when you floored it.
