    Anyone race an RS7 yet? I've got two friends both with RS7s that want to race my HC. I know I'll have issues off the line. Anyone have any first hand experiences with one of these Germans yet?

    Hmm.. I dont have any first hand experience with that particular car, but going to be close I would think. I would guess weight is about the same and I believe the RS7 is just over 600 HP. Going to come down to how good a driver they are vs. you...

    You will have to play catch up so getting grip from the start is key. You can win the 1/4 mile battle.

    Very fast off line. They also have some top end speed for a 4 door Sedan. My wife wants one of those

    You should have some grippers on the rear, otherwise we have seen what happens against tough opponents. As is said above get to a safe place (track) and run a 1/4 mile for good measure.

    FYI- my wife has a S6 and it is 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds (about the same as a RS7) and it is faster on the street to 60 than my Cat, however, I think that the Cat will walk the S6 down over 60 or 70 or so (IMO). She will not take it to the track so this is all speculation, I drive the S6 and the all wheel drive from the dig is outrageous.

    Yes my buddy had a battle with a new RS7
    The RS7 is faster from 0-60 mph after then the Hellcat is a rocket :D:p
    In the sprint the Hellcat is faster too.

    Yep, I might add that it Bi turbo, same engine in the S6, S8 and Bentley, difference in HP between the cars is the tune. If you tune it is well over 600 HP, and AWD. Do not screw with it from a dig, unless you have a lot of space(at the track) going to have to walk it down on the top.

    This is great info, thanks guys. We have this no fly zone deal out here in AZ that is 1/2 mile December 12th and 13th.

    Omega Motorsport Events

    So that will be the venue for probably both of them. Will let you guys know how the day goes. I'm sure there will be a lot of people wanting to take on the HC so should be fun day.
