    So I am a New Hellcat owner and loving it. Was wondering what everyone who owns a hellcat is coming from. As the title states, my hp keeps going up!

    640 HP

    Coming from a supercharged Arrington piece of junk R/T with 600 rwhp. Does the garage get bigger each time ?

    The Arrington part was junk not the R/T part

    Mine was a 2015 Viper GT. Love the Challenger so much better than the Viper.

    How do you like your Hellcat compare to the Viper?

    Those are some good looking cars. I am wondering what prompted the trades from the Viper to the Vette to the HC... What did you like about each of the cars that was specific to each one?

    Thanks. Each of the cars were great in their own right. I also had a 900 HP supercharged mid 9s 2012 mustang. As far as the viper, it's an awesome car. Raw hp and I have always been a viper fan. Had a few gen 3 vipers, and the new viper gen 5 is head and shoulders above the older ones. I Owned it for a little over a year and and 6k miles and have nothing bad to say about it. It's an attention getter and loved the power and sound of the V10. I have never owned a corvette and woke up one day and decided to get the C7 Z06 A8. Again wasn't disappointed with its 650hp supercharged motor and A8 trans. A bit more room with the Z and was really impressed with how well it drove and how fast it was. With that being said, the mustang, viper, And Z06 were all third vehicles as I was DD a 2015 SRT charger 392 while I had a Hellcat on order for about 8 months. I really liked how big and comfortable the charger was and couldn't wait to get my Hellcat. Than I came across a Hellcat Charger in OH, everything I wanted, and for MSRP. Couldn't pass it up. Now I have the speed of the viper and Z06 with the comfort of the Charger. Like the best of both worlds! I have changed quite a few cars in the last couple years but I know I will hang on to this Hellcat for years to come.

    I had an 1988 Honda CRX. And I like how comfortable I feel now.

    its most likely higher than 707....more like 730+.....they test the engines and it has to be a min of 707 to pass

    Two totally different animals. The viper drives exactly has they were designed to drive. But yes, if you had to pick a viper or a challenger hellcat to daily drive, the decision is a no brainier.....Hellcat.

    Well yes, as a car on a public road, but I know you will agree on a road track, I may prefer a properly prepared and maintained Viper.

    Dudes that have them at the track actually have said, keep the Hellcat unless you have the coins to just bring the Viper to the track for fun days and can own both.

    I got rid of about 400 hp of a 300C SRT8. So the extra 300 hp is very fun.

    i was going to ask about the supercharged RT's and 6.1's and 6.4's and whether they felt as good as the hellcat when you stomp on it as well as all around town. but ill make a new post for that
