    Well, here is a video by a group of journalists that apparently own the Hellcat in this video, yet can't seem to figure out how to launch the car...

    The Guy that hosts TFLCar is complete and utter TOOLSACK. How this guy gets access to cars to test as an "automotive journalist" is beyond me. I believe they did purchase the red HC recently. This guy was in some of the first HC videos on the web and the only reason I bared to watch this Tool drive the car was because I wanted to get as much information on the car as I could because I had purchased a Hellcat. (Left a deposit) in August 2014.

    The guy should stick to driving minivans or something more suited to his level of driving skill or lack of. He probably has the car in 500 HP mode. The only thing more annoying than his inability to get a decent run out of the Hellcat is his lame commentary.

    Just a question a lot of people can't. They sit back and critique people who go to the track but have no clue how to launch. This should be a tutorial on how to launch your cars properly so you wont get beat.
