    I noticed the Hellcat doesn't have a strut tower brace. Is it strong enough without?

    i'm sure it's designed and engineered by SRT pretty well as it is but i'm not an expert :)

    I noticed the same thing, but wondered if there is enough room to shoe horn one in? I'm sure there will be or is an after market one in the mix.

    I assume it has struts? Where can we find a pic of the front suspension?

    I'd say no room for a brace....but I'm guessing.

    I have to agree,, plus off you notice there is a coolant tank that sits in top of the passenger side strut

    I think the car was designed more for straight line performance than road racing so with that no strut brace needed.

    The Hellcat was designed with both in mind. Google it.

    Yea, I really thought it was designed for track as well as drag strip. I guess I've just been reading too much on the GM sites! lol

    Richard petty's garage is in the process of designing one at the moment. They said they should have one available shortly.
