    Just wanted to say Hello to everyone on this site. Man what a great site. I have gotten so many useful information about this savage beast of a machine its great. A little about myself, I live just outside of Pittsburgh and thus far have only seen 2 Hellcats in the area, (one is Sublime and the other one is Red). Man I try to look for those cars every time I work because I am out on the road alot for "work" related purposes.

    Ive been a mustang guy my whole life. Had a 1990, 92 Fox body and 2 SVT Cobras, 09 and 04. I fell in love with the 12 Charger SRT8. In my eyes handled much better than those Cobras ever did even though the 2004 Terminator I had with a Kenne Bell was ungodly fast. I got Charger while living in Harrisburg, PA. and just ripped up the Interstates out there with that beast! Not gonna go into detail but I absolutely fell in love with Mopar and the Charger and Challenger line up. No more Fords for ME!!. Really been studying this site hard to see which Hellcat I want to get, I honestly love both of them but I do have 2 younger kids so the Charger could be a bit more practical but since when is 707 practical LOL! Its freaking Badass!. I'm hunting everyday for more of them on the road and waiting to finally be able to purchase one hopefully this summer or if they ever start making them again by next spring! Hope to learn plenty more from all you guys and I'm insanely jealous of all of you that are lucky enough to be driving these beasts around.

    Well being that I have never driven the Hellcat that would be pretty difficult to compare! lol I only have my 12 Charger SRT8 and a handful of other cars to compare it to. I have sat inside and revved the Challenger Hellcat and my reaction to that was priceless. Man, I sound like a little kid on here. The Cobra was just wildly fast and very "torquey". First gear useless, 2nd gear almost the same. It dynoed around 608 RWHP which is funny because its probably not even as MUCH as the Hellcat at the rear wheels. I had drag radials on it but once I switched to NITTO street tires the traction loss was very noticeable over the DR. The car had no suspension though IMO. It was very hairy at times going around corners and I never took it to the track. The 12 Charger hands down, almost night and day, had a better suspension, ride, feel, etc compared to the Cobra. Cant imagine what the Hellcat will be like.....

    okokok...so it sounds like you use to live on the wrong side of the state and now found yourself and moved to the correct side....but we need to know, Penguins or Flyers?

    and if you say Flyers then you are banned!!!! (not really b/c I don't have that kind of power lol)

    HA! I only lived in Harrisburg for work.... Transferred back to PGH a few years ago. I love the Penguins but man they made it difficult this year to watch and root for..

    Welcome. Quite a few PITT cats here. Was looking forward to a Ducks/Penguins matchup, but that isn't going to happen now. Too bad.
