    I am getting SO sick of people trying to make themselves feel better about their regretful purchases of 'lesser' cars by tearing apart the Hellcat and not giving it the credit and respect it deserves!

    That was one of the BIGGEST reasons I stopped frequenting the "Talky Challenger" place from the past and started hanging around here. The V6 guys would tear down the V8 guys at EVERY opportunity and try to talk up their slow, cheap azz purchases. It always felt like they were a stupid little Chihuahua or Yorkie on the end of a leash that NEVER knew when to stop barking until someone got fed up and punted it into a swimming pool.

    I'm not saying there isn't a time or place for the 'entry models' but if you honestly buy one, then sit back on a forum or attend a car meet and try to insist that you somehow made the "better, smarter choice" and that your whiz-bang 6 cylinder is in some way SUPERIOR to something like a 392 or Hellcat, YOU'RE CRAZY (and stupid)!

    For example, there is a video posted on the YouTubez reviewing a Scat Pack Challenger... AMAZING car! Beautiful, powerful, sounds GREAT, good value for the money - I have nothing but love for the Scat Pack (and 392 for that matter)

    But the comment section provided me with the chance to witness some of the most ABSURD statements I have ever heard when this poor SAP tried to tear down our beloved Cat to make himself feel better.

    He said things like (and these are DIRECT QUOTES):

    ...and my PERSONAL FAVORITE:

    He also went on to finish with this very insultingly hilarious line;

    What a TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!! I'm sorry but I had to vent somewhere and post these dumb comments for ALL to see and laugh at.

    I responded with the following comment:

    He then went on to INSIST that the Hellcat was DOUBLE THE PRICE of the Scat Pack (he even admitted paying $47,000 for his Scat Pack - since when is a Hellcat $94,000??????)

    I've responded on YouTube so many times that I stopped looking at the comments. The people who know the least talk the most.

    My personal favorite are the guys that talk about modding their junkers and smoking the HC at half the price and somehow think ANYONE cares.

    Basically it comes down to jealuosy. I have learned that most people that I know that have the money to purchase one of these cars seem to have nothing but nice things to say about the Hellcat. It's the people that have no way that they could ever afford one that seem to really tear the Hellcat apart on every aspect. Lower model Challenger owns, Ford owners, Chevy onwers. Doesnt matter.

    There is nothing wrong with having a 6 cylinder or the standard 5.7L or a Scat Pack. Not everyone needs or wants 700+ hp I get that. I have no less respect to a lower model owner unless they want to be complete asshats.

    I do the Challenger wave to any Challenger v6 all the way up to Hellcat. Doesn't matter to me. Everyone has their reasons on why they choose a specific model and thats their business.

    I didn't realize there was a Challenger wave until I bought the HC. Sure enough, just like the motorcycle wave.

    What's the challenger wave? I'm jealous. Can you do the wave from a charger? Or would I be a poser?

    There is no doubt that ANY fool (no matter the forum) who is knocking the HC and saying his "(insert ANY car of less performance here)" is as good or better than a Hellcat is 1)Stupid, 2)Jealous, 3)Trying to compensate for something, and 4) clearly NOT a performance car enthusiast.

    This type of BS is all over the internet, regardless of the brand. You will see a few respectful posts by some owners of other cars saying how great the HC is, etc. But there are ALWAYS stupid, ignorant people who say "I will NEVER own a Hell Kitty (don't you love that stupidity?) because my V6/V8 Brand X is cheaper and sounds way better to me!" rather than the truth which is "I'm so F'ing stupid and really jealous so I will just insult the HC".

    Simply amazing.

    I do not bother replying to stupid people, as it simply encourages them to continue talking/typing. If you respond to them, you are: 1) acknowledging their presence, 2) giving them the attention they crave, and 3) it makes them think you actually give a flying f**k about their opinion. As I have said for decades ... stupid people should not be allowed to breed, so gently sterilize them before puberty.

    Yeah well I laugh at HC owners when I blow by them in my Prius while they are pumping gas. Who's faster is all relative.
