    Have a ? For the hellcat challenger owners.....how fast have you had it? There is a lot of vids showing top speed on the chargers but none of the challengers except one on a dyno
    So im asking.
    Is your auto or stick. How far did it take you to get to that speed. How far did it take to safely bring it back down to posted speeds? As can tell im not asking about dyno runs.
    Iv had mine to 146. M6

    152 m6. Rolling at 80 on the hwy then punched it down. Literally felt like 3 secs to get there haha. I slowed down to what i thought was 80 again only to seen i was still doing 110. The carb is so smooth

    A8 and 96 mph is tops so far but it was enough to dust a new 5.0 mustang that was stalking me on the highway .. He was cool about it after that he followed me to the store and said knew I didn't have a chance just wanted to hear the cat roar never seen one before...

    Mid 140's also. IMO I am happy unless I need to bust it faster on a track. It is a beast, kinda an oxymoron on this thread, be safe folks.

    I was hoping someone has had a challenger topped out to see just what it will do (real world not on a dyno with no wind)

    I'm taking the Fifth. Careful here folks, your post could come back and bite you some day. Like anything else, once posted on the Internet, it never goes away. IMHO, this is a discussion that is better left for face to face meetings over Slurpies in the 7-Eleven parking lot. Just sayin'. :cool:

    I had a dream of hitting 157 rather quickly. it was smooth, comparable to 85-90. From what of the dream I remember anyway...

    155 chasing deputydog down the interstate. Felt safer than my old school hot rod at 80.

    100 for the first time yesterday! I'm still amazed on how fast it got there from a stop. My 392 was fast, but this is "almost" stupid fast for the street.

    171 mph on closed runway, had just shifted into 6th gear at about 150 mph or so. Had PLENTY more speed in it, MPH were climbing stupid fast but ran out of room. The car was steady and stable, felt like I was going 80 except for the wind noise and screaming engine

    There's already a top speed thread, and many Challenger owners, like myself, have posted there.
