    The highest setting I can set the Hellcat is 2000 RPM. I would think we should be able to launch 2250 or 2500 with the MT drag radials on a prepped track. What do all others do out there? with a 2000 I get a 1.66 60 ft time and 7.11 in a 1/8 mile prepped track with 100 degree weather. One other problem is it getting hot in the staging lanes by not able to push car. Have to start to get out of gear into neutral. I am thinking of adding a aux fan in the front of the intercooler exchanger and power up in the lanes.

    There is a red lanyard inside the center console to the right of the shifter (automatic) that can be pulled to allow you to put the car in neutral while in staging lanes. No need to start it then while waiting. You just have to pull up that weird little oval'ish shaped tray and it is under there.

    Thank you very much for the info! I would think there should be some way in order to tow it.

    You're welcome, oh and by the way, thanks for making the pinch weld jack pads! I use mine every time I change the oil, works great. :)
