    No.....Neither are mine. I got it from MMF . Some of the Racers on there attend it and reported the Hellcats times.

    Speaking of pics/vids, did you ever get any real confirmation, that the ~10.4 ET reported from a Hellcat was done via the help of nitrous? I've seen pic's, of a bone-stock Hellcat engine compartment, which was supposedly the cat that turned that ultra-quick time at the quarter-mile. But, I've also heard rumors of N2O usage, --somebody told me that you knew the truth, can you enlighten me!?!

    Incredible! I can't wait to see what a Charger Hellcat does in the mile. At those speeds, those aerodynamics really come into play

    I do not know anything for certain just have heard it said that a small shot was used.

    The top speed of Charger HC is 5 mph faster than Challenger HC due to the aerodynamics, but that's top speed, which takes a whole lot longer than a mile to get too. So in the mile I'd say 1, MAYBE 2 mph more. But the question is, since the Challenger is lighter (about 125 lbs lighter base form but if Charger has sunroof that adds probably another 30 lbs to it), it gets out of the hole faster, so at what point does the better aerodynamics of the Charger overtake the weight advantage of the Challenger. My guess is the average Challenger would be ahead somewhere until 120-130 mph range, then the Charger would start to creep ahead and gain 1-2 mph more in that mile.

    This post is a perfect example. The autos are well documented as being measurably faster than the manuals, yet in this Texas mile, the auto Challenger was only 2 mph faster than the manual, so doubtful the 10% better aerodynamics (ie: if Challenger is .35 coeff of drag, the Charger would be .32) would make much more than 1-2 mph difference up to 175 mph, especially considering the Challenger is lighter and therefore gets a better start

    With so many variables (power variances between engines, weight of drivers, quality of gas, options on the cars etc etc) you could run 8 speed autos 10 Charger HC against 10 Challenger HC in a standing mile race like this, and it could end up in a 5 wins for each.

    That makes sense and I would agree with and I do, the reason I'm saying the Charger would probably take the win in the mile is the famous Hellcat known as "Fatt-Cat" on youtube ran a Charger Hellcat a few times and the Charger pulled on him slightly every time on the top end. That's what made me think the aerodynamics are more significant than I previously thought. But you're right, it could possibly be different gas etc. I know the driver of the Fatt-Cat car knows what he's doing and has quite a bit of seat time racing.

    Love it! Tons of fun and effortless power. I have almost 6000 miles and my Nitto 555R's are at the tire place ready to be mounted. Can't wait to actually be able to put down all this HP.

    Lot of variables , but if we are talking just aerodynamics, The Charger is 12% more aerodynamic according to SRT.

    Challenger Hellcat has a.380 cd and Charger Hellcat has a .330 cd according to SRT.

    Probably approaching 100mph is where you might begin to see a slight difference but definetly above 150 mph.

    Hellcats should only race other cars that can keep up, not other Hellcats, Oh there aren't any. J/K

    Just have fun knowing you have the baddest machine made on this planet
