    Okay I need to verify something here. The specs show the Hellcat A8 comes with 2.62 gears and the M6 comes with 3.7s. When I build my Challenger Hellcat on Dodge.com it shows my M6 with 2.62s. So what gears actually come with the M6?

    I thought so but just wanted to double check. Dodge.com should fix that. It confused old guys like me who expect accurate info.

    My 2014 Core M6 had 3.92 gears in the rear. Snap your freakn neck. I'm pretty sure the 3.70's are to achieve the top end number.

    Using a lower rear end gear in a boosted car is normal.

    In a NA car like the 392 your using the mechanical advantage of using a steep gear ratio like a 3.92 to get up and go.

    But for a boosted application like the Hellcat you don't need to use the rear gear as much. Your mechanical advantage now is the blower. With a lower rear end gear you keeping the car in boost longer.
