    After driving the Hellcat from Colorado to California, besides being absolutely blown away. I found that while on long straight shots the car obviously shined. Most of my drving so far has been on the highway.

    And thus I found my favorite gear...5th gear!!!! It is for sure the sweet spot and it just wants to go into the 100's with of course no lag. It was so fun to drop it to 5th at 65 mph and shoot off into the night like a rocket ship....

    During my 1,600 mile drive got to break in the engine and came to rhe realization that Dodge truly hit this out of the park.

    So now of course there will be the battle of HP supremacy with the other manufacturers, but its noce to know we were able to be apart of history with this Hellcat beast... And at least no one will beat the name and badging!!!!!!!

    Anyways, anyone have a favorite gear, I would like to hear about it... Once I get the Cat Cquartz and tinted ill post the pics....

    2nd cuz you can roll into the throttle in sport and she breaks into controllable wheel spin by pedaling the throttle carefully-sounds awesome and you are accelerating fast but can still ease off and save your license lol...

    When I read the title of this thread, I immediately thought SECOND gear!!!

    Then I read the responses, nice to see so much agreement...

    It has to be 2nd tire destroying acceleration, and then way to cool ping/pop in the headers on deceleration then the awesome pop back in the exhaust when you roll back on the throttle. I can just keep doing that all day it sounds like nothing I have driven. Even my drag car does not sound as cool just because it is SO Crazy loud.

    I'm going to have to agree with most everyone else for exactly the same reasons, sound, instant acceleration and for not hitting super ridiculous speeds around town.
    I just gotta say the sound of the full throttle shift from first into second is absolutely addicting! Acceleration isn't bad either!
