    This seems about right. Hellcat was just a few tenths behind the Z06 on street tires with an even higher 60' time. Which is what I would expect since the Z06 weighs 800 lbs less. I wish the Hellcat had brought some stickies though.

    Hope that was driver issues and not the TCM fix on the Hellcat times....

    Fix? Not sure what you mean. But if he used traction control it would have been way slower. It did exactly what it was supposed to do on street tires with cold temps.

    FIX, as in why all the cars were delayed getting a reflash, Hellcat should have posted better numbers period............

    most tests have given the HC #'s like that....very few have gotten 11.2........

    i know if richard rawlings would have been there he would have gotten 11.2 and kicked everyone's ass....while yelling WHEEEWWW

    when you see the A8 do that bad just think how the M6 would have done?

    will you take the HC if your driving a M6 HC and get beat by a A8 392?

    12.11 is slow for 707hp. I'll chalk it up as driver mod needed.

    One of "my" requirements for the Hellcat I get is an A8... Not negotiable. With that said, if somebody wants to give me an M6 Hellcat I'll gladly take it even if I get spanked by an SRT392 A8.

    No disrespect meant for anyone likes to 'row their own'. I love manuals BUT for me it's automatic all the way...

    The 12 was due to traction the trap speed shows the hp which is consistent with a low 11 pass. 2 second 60fts suck, I ran 1.57 with my CTS-V on drag radials, that netted a 10.7 at 127 mph. Hellcat is right there with proper tires

    the hellcat would benefit most with sticky tires because of the weight distribution, car weight and tire width advantage the vipers and corvettes have and the horsepower advantage the hellcat has

    If your going to do a comparison they should have had the same driver doing all the runs, I would chalk it up to a driver not knowing his car yet..
