    after doing a search and not finding an answer....

    Car and Driver had an instrumented test of a M6 Challenger Hellcat. Has any seen an instrumented test of the A8?

    Any testing / data on the M6 vs A8 for Quartermile times and trap speeds? Which is faster?

    The A8 is faster by .5-.8 in 1/4.

    My stock M6 with DR's ran a 1.8 60' & 3.3 0-60 mph. I launched around 2500 rpm. I'm going to launch it harder this year and expect to destroy my clutch and replace it with a McLeod. Banging gears is a blast!!

    Very nice!

    Do you expect the stock clutch to hold up?

    No sir, but for now it's still holding up fine. Hopefully it can hold for another year, but we will see. My goal is to get an 11.1 bone stock (except my 20" dr's). Everyone was fighting a bad cross and head wind yesterday so I really feel with the right conditions I can achieve that. Once I hit an 11.1 stock, then I'll start the expensive process of adding more power.

    Here's another vid. Really puts it in perspective how hard this beast can launch.
