    Anybody watch the TopGear episode this week on the History Channel? Charger Hellcat was compared to the CTS-V Sedan and P85D D. Let's just say the word "Hells-ya" was used many times. I was smiling the entire second half of the episdode.

    Season 8 episode 4.

    Which Top Gear? BBC is up to season 17, so this must another version of the show.

    It's the American one. 8 seasons already? Wow... I didn't think they'd last. No where near as good as the BBC version (Which stopped at season 22, I think, before Clarkson got canned... the new BBC show / season with Matt Le Blanc should be out soon, if not already.)

    I have pretty much had it with all the recent British invasion crap. British actors in American roles, talk show hosts etc. I am glad for the American Revolution. Time for another one? Just visited the Battle of New Orleans(war of 1812 I know) site where Andrew Jackson kicked them al the way back to England. 2000 British casualties to less than 20 for the Americans and they outnumbered Americans greatly.. Kind of like a Hellcat victory. Hell yes. Want to race Jaguar boys?

    Pretty nice endorsement for the HC. Calling operator error in the tug of war the higher HP and heavier car should have won - tires on the caddy are 295s though..

    NO NO NO...it's season SIX, episode FOUR.

    Here are the RESULTS:

    Drag race between Tesla, new CTS-V and Hellcat. Tesla clobbers everyone off the line. Hellcat is a smokey bad launch. But it doesn't matter as they climb into triple digits. The Hellcat overtakes and wins easily.

    Then a test of the towing power. Caddy wins, but I think this is about tires more than torque.

    Handling test "impressions." The Tesla does poorly. Period. Pro driver says the Hellcat is "made to drift and it's hard to believe anyone can just buy this thing!" He then says if you plan to grow up, buy the Tesla, but if you want to be a 12 year old and stay young, get the Hellcat.

    Hellcat is "the one to get" but all three cars are judged incredible.

    Now all three cars are put on a track with the same driver. Caddy wins this one easily, followed by the Hellcat and the Tesla in last place. Times:
    CTS-V 2:01:11
    Hellcat 2:05:53
    Tesla 2:05:55

    I knew the CTS would win, but even though the Tesla looked bad on the course, it still did well because it has so much instant torque. Hellcat is still called "The car to have for life"

    Fun show and a great showing for the Charger Hellcat!

    Video is finally on youtube. The madness starts at 22 minutes.

    You will notice they say "Hells-yeah!" many times during the episode. I just ordered my PA Vanity plate to say "HELLSYA" since I found it so awesome.
