    Poking around on the internet today instead of working like I should be and stumbled across this jewel of a "news story" plastered to an ev forum/website...who really cares? My immediate reaction wasn't anger or an urge to sign up on their forum and bump my gums, it was uncontrollable laughter! I just want you guys to be aware in case you run into one of these fanboys not to be drinking anything while listening to them plead their case, you will end up blowing it out of your nose. Aside from being a choking hazard, it's just plain unsightly. Enjoy....


    """DragTimes has set/matched its own Tesla Model S P85D 1/4-mile record (quickest/fastest production electric car) with this latest run:

    “New record done on ADV.1 wheels and stock OEM Tires.”

    The time of 11.6 seconds matches the previous P85D run in which the Tesla obliterated that 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat.

    However, in this run, the Tesla’s top speed is 116 MPH, versus 114.6 MPH in that Hellcat crushing run.

    As for that Hellcat owner, he’s asking for a rematch now, but he’s tweaked the car from stock by fitting it with drag radials for an unfair advantage and it’s been recalled for fuel leaks. Apparently, the leaks aren’t related to how much gas the Hellcat guzzles as the throttle is depressed, but rather to some faulty seals that allow the fuel to leak out. Sounds dangerous to us.""""

    Yeah any fool who watched the video knows the Hellcat smoked the tires half way down the track. Can't wait till Johnny shuts them up and good!

    I hadn't seen that video yet, thanks for the link. The HC appeared to have launched in either launch mode or second gear...pretty soft, and still stomped a mud hole in the tesla.

    I get some smart ass comment about that Tesla run weekly. Not to mention it's the only real kill of a HC on the internet which drives trolls posts in every comment section of every HC article written to date. To the point...I've got a dog in this fight, that's why I concern myself with it.

    And that same race, a stock Neon would have smoked the Hellcat. Would we all be up in arms then looking for Neons to prove a point? I think not.

    Look at the bright side. You can put a panini sandwich in that toaster. Then wait for him at the finish line. By the time he gets there your lunch will be ready!
