    I honestly can't believe the sheer ignorance of some people. Every time this picture or another one like it gets posted on Instagram, people fall all over themselves about how the Hellcat is AWD or FWD. One kid, I call him that because he's still in high school, had the nerve to tell me I should be ashamed because I don't know what drivetrain is in my car! :mad: Really, you ignorant little @#$%@?!?! He kept saying "look it up" so I challenged him to post a link, ANY link, that said the Hellcat's are FWD. Of course, nothing but silence after that.

    Ok, rant over. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming...

    Btw, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE my Rear. Wheel. Drive. Hellcat!

    Just tell them to put their money where their mouth is and you won't prove anything unless its worth $100. Then watch them shut up.

    While a FWD muscle car would be laughed at, I would love to see Dodge offer an AWD Hellcat at some point down the road.

    AWD would no doubt help the average driver to get more consistently good 0-60 and 1/4-mile times.

    I did. His response was that it was a "...rear wheel drive conversion...a bunch of tuning shops are doing them." Finally, after I sent him links to SEVERAL articles, INCLUDING Dodge's ordering page which proved it's RWD, he said "you honestly thought I was serious?" I said, "No, I honestly thought, and still do, that you're an idiot. You were arguing with several people about this now hush, the adults are talking." Haven't heard from him since.
