    Any thoughts on the competition? I know the Hellcat is producing almost 200 HP more but it seem they all fall into similar 1/4 mile times, 0-60 times and top speed.

    ZL1 runs what, 12.5-12.8 stock at 114-ish, roughly? And 0-60 in 4.4?

    Shelby is about 11.8 @ 125, 0-60 in 3.5.

    Hellcat is right on par with the Shelby, I think it's been clocked by C&D at 11.7, SRT claims 11.2.

    Not much competition from the ZL1. I like the ZL1, I'd love to have one, but nothing touches the Hellcat in terms of raw emotion...people that aren't even car people are excited about the car. I don't recall the same reception with the ZL1 nor the Shelby (it was mostly car people hemming and hawing about the 662hp)

    all the 1/4 mile and 0-60 times ive seen from the magazine testers havent been close to dodges claims.....Richard Rawlings is the only guy who can get an 11.2........while many magazine testers have gotten close to Fords claims on the GT500.....

    the contest between the 2 would be very close

    Will come down to traction. Once you run a car time and time again you begin the process of learning how to launch it. Your times will go down. I figure my 60 foot times will be 2 range until I get the feel of it.
    Magazine drives are good drivers but they run different cars and different tracks so they really don't get a chance to get the feel of it.

    I have a buddy that's going to help me line up my Hellcat (if it ever comes in) against my GT500 sometime in the future. I want to put the same sticky M/T tires on the Hellcat as I put on the Mustang before trying this. The GT500 leaves very hard once the tires are warmed up so I am hopeful to see the same thing with the Hellcat. If so, I think the Mustang is going to be in trouble but either way, it should be interesting!

    FYI - Motor Trend documents the ZL1 at 0-60 3.8 or 9 and 12.1 1/4 mile

    Depends on if the driver can race or not.

    What do you guys do to warm up your tires a little? A small burnout?

    On a normal drive? For the first two miles, leaving the house, I always stay under 35 mpg
