    Well no damage to my Hellcat

    Drove into town ( Waukesha ) with my work truck. It decided it no longer needed second gear. So I had to stop by my buddy's engine and transmission shop. He told me he would not work on it until he sees my Hellcat.

    I go home get the Cat, almost the entire way stuck be hind a POS Prius

    I am not making this up!

    Got to the shop and picked up my buddy who owns the shop, he has built almost every one of my cars by the way. Let him drive the cat back to my house to pick up my truck for service. On the way home we are having a nice hellcat like ride home, on the freeway and I look over and ask him, "is that a CTS-V? " he says "yep" The two cars are driving side by side for a long time and he blips the gas while downshifted into 4th. The guy in the CTS/V bites. The Cts guy hits it hard takes off at about a length away, we hit it in 3rd, close the door and run out of space with the traffic ahead of us. But a little more room and he is toast. I can tell you it feels a lot faster in the passenger seat than the driver seat. By the way the CTS/V is pretty damn fast and it was black not blue.

    Probably wasn't stock, my modded V ran 10.77. They respond well to mods.

    did not lose

    we gave him the jump of a car length and caught up to him, just reeling him in we had him and he knew it. I agree it was not stock but my car is right down to the drive shaft and tires, only thing not stock was my first oil change.

    mildly worked CTSV's and Cobras are nothing to sneeze at, usually approaching mid 6XX++ HP.

    Cobra, Shelby, and cts-v cars with mods are nasty fast...one car I would stay clear of after they mod it is the new gt350, can you imagine that thing with a supercharger......
