    When I used to drag race my 96 Viper GTS, it would run between 119 to 122 MPH in right at 12 seconds. It was iffy if you would hit the rev limiter in 3rd gear or not at the end of the quarter. Sometimes it did and others it did not. Does the six speed Challenger Hellcat face the same issue in the 1/4 mile, or will it rev high enough to finish the 1/4 mile in 3rd gear. I finally went with a larger diameter drag radial on the Viper that would have allowed it to get to about 126 MPH in 3rd before hitting the rev limiter, but never got back to the drag strip to see if I could get it to go that fast before I sold it.

    Lots of drag racing info being posted, but it seems most of it from automatics.

    Top speed in 3rd gear is 120mph. So the 3-4 shift is mandatory and ET will suffer. When these cars are able to be tuned, and the rev limit raised, a 3rd gear run might be possible... Then I think you are going to see some really good times out of the M6...

    I have a May 6th track day coming up in my M6.. Radiator, radiator hoses, driveshaft be damned....

    I agree if you have to do 3-4. What about 1/8 mile what RPM in second I presume?

    The drag strip near Columbus Ohio opens Sunday for a test and tune. I will let you know what I am able to do.

    1st time ever doing a 1/4 mile. 6M on all seasons. Crappy old country road at 50 degrees. Screenshot_2015-04-12-22-23-45.png

    image.jpg Well I got to the track. However I could not get the car to launch. First time I keep breaking loss in first and second gear. Second run I tired to launch easier and bogged down. Then it spun again in second. So I hate to post these numbers as they are really poor examples of what the car can do. i left the tires at 32 psi, did a decent burnout, had esp totally off, suspension in street mode.
    i hope to get a little more practice with the launch in this thing. The end of the track is amazing with how much the car is pulling. You do have to shift into fourth which is not ideal. As you can see from my reaction time i was more worried about getting off the line but even taking my time didn't help. I lined up with a scat pack auto with dot slicks. He ran a 12.45.

    For both of you the time doesn't concern me... Got trap speed however does. I know the autos are physically faster but your almost 8-10 mph off ... That scares me

    Yeah this completely scares me. Hopefully it's just practice is needed behind the wheel. Scat Pack owner must be bragging like crazy.

    My M6 is due next week. I have track experience, not much, but some. I'd be turning the car back into dodge if I ran a 12.9!!

    Ill be using two different tire set ups when I go. I have 28" Mickeys mounted on the factory rims for daily use, and I will also be experimenting with some 26" tall Hoosier slicks. Those will effectively make my gear ratios shorter, allowing me more time to get in the power band in 4th at the end of the track...if they hook.

    If this car only traps in the 1 teens with a halfway good launch and drag radials, Ill sell it....seriously
