    Interesting video on how to drag race your Hellcat.

    We Race Dodge In A 2015 Hellcat Challenger

    One point I didn't know was track mode actually added traction control and street mode has less.

    Enjoy!

    Interesting about "Track" slippage vs. "Street." Would have been nice to see them hit the 10s a couple of times with the drag radials.

    So HotRod recommends -

    Custom Mode
    HP - 707
    Transmission - Track
    Paddle Shift - on during burnout, off once going down the 1/4mi
    Traction - Sport
    Suspension - Street

    Makes a lot of sense on the setup. The ET's I thought were great for the trap speeds. Typical Fontana air robbing mph! Nice to see these cars still run low 11's even on street tires. Good prep at Fontana these days.

    Very nice! Cool to see those kinds of times consistently on stock tires. Man, I want my car!

    Thanks! Lots of good information for a novice like me. I was glad she said low-12s cause that's what I did my only time at the track. I only got 3 passes though and the car had 520 miles on it. I feel sre that I've improved since them.

    Got a M6 drive in Sport/Sport/Street mode. Does anyone know of a Hellcat instructional race video for an M6? Heard launch control is tricky with the M6.
