    P90DL is fast and the owner doesn't try to hide his excitement owning such a wonderful gadget, but when waiting at the traffic light next to it, I just have one word "soul-less", I mean, this thing makes no noise at all, a creepy yet capable car, but my HC is more like a real world vehicle.

    Then in the next traffic light, while I was still checking the P90DL, to my right lane, there is this grey GTR driven by a teenager. I would rather have a GTR than a P90DL, though I probably like to have own all of these cars, haha. Anyway that kid has AWD and is quick off the line, but again more like a toy vs a real muscle car.

    All in all, I don't try to race with any of them as cops are normally hitting people right after rush hour ends, so I will let them "explore" what is ahead of me, haha.

    My buddy at work has a heavily modified GTR (800+) it is a good looking car red with white interior and it has the ability to put the TQ down...snap your damn head off your neck, buuuut it is very "clunky" i feel like my HC puts the power down smoothly and can be a very good road car. We did 40 mph roll on and I JUMPED out easily by a car length, but once his turbo's spun it was over. It was like slow motion he crept up on me and about the time I could see his car in ,my peripheral it then went to FFWD and he was gone like a slingshot. He later told me he was stunned at my HC performance and wasn't expecting what resulted.

    Stock for stock not too sure he would have ever caught you-but those GTR's are deadly in the 1/8 mile...was just talking to a friend today that drove a GTR on a road course and said it was so easy to drive fast on a road course anyone could do a hero lap-our cars will take much more finesse and yes will be slower...but I bought mine to drive and enjoy as the baddest true muscle car ever!

    the hellcat is roomy, fast in a straight line, handles fairly well and is comfortable, like a bored and stroked Harley kind of,
    the GTR is a fantastic sports car, but its the tuner car fanboy dream ride too. Butt from what I've seen theres no way in hellcat that the hellcat can touch a GTR on any type of autocross or road course, given similar driver skillsets. And roll racing is meh......

    GTRs are tiny rich boy rice rockets. Cool cars but men have a hard time fitting into them.
