    hey guys. Racing is pretty big in the Detroit area and so are HC. Tonight on the way home from the local hang out, a buddy of mine with a 16 HC challenger ran our buddy in his 06Z. The z is tuned , full exhaust and small cam. Shocking, but all 5 runs went to the Z. I know they are much lighter, but the car is a 480 wheel car and it pulled a good 2-3 cars on the HC. They did 5 races and the Z pulled every time. I was very shocked at the outcome. Thought the HC would have got it given the 8 speed auto.

    I wish I could have the Hellcat for a daily driver and a Z06 for a track car but I can't really afford both and I can't fit in the Corvettes anyways.

    Since you mentioned all the 5 runs went to Z06. What was the ET both running so we have more detail on it. Tuned car can make other car slow but it'd be nice put more info.

    06Z 480 HP wheel car with a small cam and full exhaust? I had a 2007 Z06 with an intake, tune and ARH long tube headers that had 497 SAE rwhp.

    Lol. I'm sure a lot of people would . He also has a low 10 second charger HC as well. Last night was just a friendly roll race. He actually thought he was going to get out ran. He said when his car was stock, it felt like it pulled harder than his Z

    His car should beat a stock Hellcat with those mods. If i was able shift my modified Z06 like a pro it would probably be just as fast as my Hellcat. Me driving the Z06 vs me driving the Hellcat 0+ mph i would say the Hellcat is faster.

    Guys the C6 Z06 is NO JOKE!!! I've got a good friend that has an 09 with long tubes, CAI and a tune. It's a very impressive car. They are light weight and the suspension works very well to get them moving.

    I think that I just read a call out from BODUKE!!!!

    I have a C7 Z51 Supercharged and some goodies 650whp 580tq it screams in the upper revs but the HC is more fun to drive in my opinion

    Tell your Buddy to make sure the HC is in the 700+HP mode. He is probably running in 500HP mode. LOL

    Not surprised at all. My buddy has a 07 Z that has gone thru a lot of changes. Bolt ons and tune will get them to trap around 130. Cam and heads can do 135+ depending on recipie. If the Z isn't bone stock, a stock HC will not hang with it let alone beat it.

    Sold an 08 Z06 that had CAI, headers, and a tune and made 500/480 HP/TQ at the wheels. Best run was 10.77 @ 131.

    Stock C6Z vs stock Hellcat the Cat is a little faster. A few bolt-ons to each and the Cats quickly walk away in the 9's ... LS7 needs heavy internal engine mods to go that fast.
