    I have contacted SRT and asked them to have an experienced SRT driver do a re-match against the Telsa P85D! I am sure Telsa had one of their test driver/engineers drive their car! I am sure Dodge/SRT has some drivers that can drive a Hellcat professionally! Poor Johnny was set up!! I don't mad, I get even!!!

    85D should still win, the torque is there immediately.

    The Telsa P85D is all wheel drive and that is its advantage. To make it fair the Hellcat should be allowed racing slicks!

    This is what I got from Tim Kuniskis

    Agree 100% -- the Hellcat is much better (quicker and faster) than that video suggests.
    Luckily, there are many others online that highlight that -- and the comments from Hellcat fans support that as well.
    And, this was one of the reasons that when we launched the car, we had the performance times certified by the NHRA – we didn’t want people saying/thinking they weren’t real.

    What's the point? They're going for different audiences. The Tesla isn't a true sport sedan and costs $120K. It's not like any prospective Tesla buyers are going to see a Hellcat beat it at the strip and go, "well I was thinking of getting an eco friendly zero emissions car, but instead I'll get a car where you can actually hear dinosaurs crying when you floor it." It's a no-win situation for SRT. If they win, there's no upside. If they lose, they get mocked.

    Wrong. Hellcats routinely post both quicker AND faster times at the quarter-mile. The Tesla is easier to launch, but if the Hellcat doesn't redlight, and doesn't choose to turn off all traction control, it'll blow past the Tesla (did you note the Tesla's speed was 'only' 114mph? Hellcats often are more than ten mph faster through the traps, and like a half second quicker.) But, these cars appeal to different buyers anyway. The Tesla is for those rich folks wanting quiet luxury, and the best fuel economy. Hellcats are for buyers that aren't necessarily wealthy, but demand the most dominant muscle car ever created.

    Remember, the Hellcat times are registered with the NHRA!!

    The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is the fastest muscle car ever with a National Hot Rod Association-certified ¼-mile elapsed time of 11.2 seconds at 125 miles per hour (mph) with stock Pirelli P275/40ZR20 P Zero tires. With drag radials, the run dropped to just 10.8 seconds at 126 mph!
