    Earlier today I was talking to a couple buddies about the Hellcat I ordered when another guy I know walked up and suggested "real men buy Mustangs".

    We all looked at him, confused, and asked if he was joking (SURELY he had to be). I asked "do you even know what a Hellcat is?"

    He replies "yeah, of course... that's that Dodge thing that makes a lot of noise but gets left in the Shelby Mustang's dust!"

    I literally LOL'd and asked him which MAGICAL Mustang he was referring to? He smugly answered "I'll show you" and started googling God-knows-what until he yells "ah-HA!" and begins to tell us about a 620(?)hp Mustang, then says "can your sweet little Hellcat compete with that? I asked if he was referring to the 662hp Shelby from last year and he didn't appear to know what I was talking about.

    I then, of course, told him about the 707 ponies on tap in the Cat and he was visibly shaken as he desperately asked "well, how heavy is it, it's gotta weigh SO much more than the Mustang".

    He then started googling (or trying to) the Challenger and asked "what did you say it was called? Hellcat R/T or something?"

    He kept INSISTING the Mustang would smoke it in the 1/4 mile. I told him what kind of times the Cat was putting down and he says "it's one thing to claim this or that, but where's your proof???"

    I showed him the recent video of the Hellcat with drag radials and race gas ripping the 10.4 1/4 mile and he went silent. He tried to say "it's an OK time, I guess".

    After a brief pause and several attempts at bringing up some "factory twin turbo upgrade you can order that gives the Mustang 850hp" he tried to change the subject altogether... LOL

    My other buddy leaned over and whispered "this guy has obviously never even heard of a Hellcat..."

    Desperation is a STINKY cologne!

    Thought I'd share the story, it was pretty darn funny!

    I have a coworker who has a 662 horse GT500... and he is absolutely beside himself that I am getting a Hellcat.. he constantly tries to explain to me the weight difference, power to weight ratio, etc...

    My response to him was... "dont be mad at me because you bought the wrong car..." lol

    In situations like this, I still refer back to HemiDave's writeup:

    Granted, it's for a ZL1, but a Mustang could be applicable too. Even so, I have a lot of respect for ZL1 and Shelby... and that's not stinky cologne, it's fear you smell.

    Time for a funny break - originally from HemiDave.

    .................................................. .................................................. ..
    You hear the approaching Hellcat exhaust note.....undeniably Hellcat....

    Your heart quickens.....hands tighten around your ZL1's steering wheel....

    Your buddy in the passenger seat say's..."Kill dat fat ass pig!!!"

    You see the 4 Halo's coming up fast.....fast as all Hell.....

    Your mind whispers to you.."It cant be coming that fast ..the calculations don't add up.....don't worry....it's not real."

    But your eyes....ohhh your lying eyes.....see the demon...about to have you for a snack.......

    No road course in sight....you think..."What the F do I do now!!!!"

    Your heart is racing like mad.....gonna come out of your chest....Hurts like hell

    Sweat pours down your face....this is real...this is no road course pleasure day ....

    This counts.....The pressures on.....Damn!!!...you think...Where is the RING!!!!

    The Hell demon is now upon you...FUK!!.....It's F'in Hemi Dave!!!...

    Red light....side by side now....no one around....clear road...no intersection ahead....

    .....You think...$hit no!!.....Oh HELL NO!.....

    ...Your boy see's your fear....he hears the Hellcat exhaust.... roar...and roar....glass cracks....buildings shake...

    ....Your ass puckers just a bit... just as your boys puckers.....

    Why did you eat that burrito!?!? ............

    You now realize that calculations don't mean $hit......but it's too late

    You know you have 3 choices now.......

    ......One..... Witness a probable straight line ZL1 death.....Your ZL1....

    ......Two....Ask Dave to head over to the RING....(which you already have pre-loaded in your GPS for such a situation)

    ......Three...Turn left and say you don't street race......

    WOW you guys I own a GT 500 convertible and a 2012 SRT-8 392 ( got a hellcat in the black hood hole).

    They are different cars. I like them both. No reason to trash talk them. Any modified cars vs a bone stock car is not a fair race. the Hellcat is faster than any stock Mustang. But its inexpensive to modify a Mustang and make it pretty fast. No a Saleen or other conversion is not a stock unit. Yes I plan to run my GT500 vs my Hellcat this spring at the track 1/4 mile on test and tune night ( Tuesday night). I think my GT with tuner, exhaust, cold air and smaller pulley will give the Hellcat a good run. Once we re tune the Hellcat then its game over.

    But trust me you are not comparing apples to apples. why not compare the Hellcat vs the Porsche Boxer??? Or compare it to a GSXR motorcycle.

    really????????????????? sorry to say this but some of you need to grow up.

    Ford guys in general, and especially Mustang guys, bring a WHOLE other level of stupid to the equation.

    I've met very few Ford people I like; my mom and stepdad because, well I have to:D, my old boss at Halliburton who loved his 7.3 but the man is smart and knows it's limitations, and a co-worker at Halliburton also who had a 7.3.

    Other than that, most are in the ignorant column. They are completely brand blind and refuse anything that might be better/stronger/faster than their Fords.

    One Mustang I would buy, however, is an '03/'04 Terminator Cobra.

    It didn't seem to me that it was as much about the cars as it was about the seemingly majority of idiot drivers who have them. That was my take on the read anyway.

    Personally, I am a fan of both Ford and Dodge ... never have been overly fond of Chevy, but must admit the new Stingray is really pretty! A good car, is a good car ... no matter the maker.

    Yes, your car is amazing! You are correct, it isn't a fair comparison. I am a die hard Mopar fan, but respect all fast cars. I will also give my Corvette nemesis crap because he gets a kick out of giving it right back to me! He is a turd and very arrogant about it! But, you are right. I shouldn't judge all Corvette drivers as being like him so, I try not to. I wouldn't want everyone getting a Hellcat anyway, I like having something special and perfect for me! I do refuse to grow up too much though. You only live once and I am going to enjoy every minute while I am here! ;)

    I respect all 3 car brands, no need to hate on anyone, it's the drivers who hate just like guns don't kill people, people kill people , although a bit harsh comparison. There will always be fan boys and loyalists as one adopted grand father I have would say. Let's just all get along :)
