    Guys and Gals , I would like to offer my sincere apologies on embarrassing the Hellcat community! That race between the Tesla and I was supposed to be fun and for entertainment purposes ! I had no idea ( Brooks) the Tesla driver and his Internet companies would use this for Tesla propaganda ! After I was called out several times over the PA system in front of my sons and friends , I reluctantly accepted the challenge ! The Tesla driver who was the promoter of the event knew that I never tried or practiced launching this particular car as I only had it for a mere few days , so I made it clear that if I broke traction I would do a burnout down the track! It is clear in the video that I red lighted and braked it hard to then throttled a long smoker! Ive already voiced my displeasure with him and he assured me a rematch via his friend ! Again , I apologize for all the press on this! Johnny

    Johnny you have NOTHING to apologize for as you haven't learned the new beast yet AND you were set up. Once you get the launch down send him a rematch challenge. We appreciate the video.

    The sad fact is, these cars are way under tired. It is a flaw of the LX platform. You need some really good air and a perfect launch to get those low 11s. And you need a lot of seat time. Unlike an awd car, you cant just jump in these and go.

    You need some 305 MT ETs Johnny. They will complains about using DRs even though their car is AWD *roll eyes*

    No apology necessary...I actually enjoyed watching you do a 1/8 mile burn out over watching the Tesla. :p
