    Good read about the Z06 getting its a** handed to it in Motor Trend. It's not a stand out amongst it's competition unlike the Hellcats which in thier circle have none. I'm so tired of Corvette fan boys comparing the cat to the Z06. Just an opinion not going to argue here just for the record.

    I just bought a Challenger Hellcat and have had some people ask me why not the top Corvette? Hmm, let me see. Pay $40-50K more and still have the slower car. Sure OK.

    Front cover MotorTrend car comparison article for April. Not to flattering regarding Z06.

    I have both, and I can be very objective since I love both of them.

    Z06 is the slower car? I don't think so.

    Hellcat according to Car and Driver:
    C/D TEST RESULTS:
    Zero to 60 mph: 3.6 sec
    Zero to 100 mph: 7.6 sec
    Zero to 130 mph: 12.4 sec
    Rolling start, 5-60 mph: 4.0 sec
    Top gear, 30-50 mph: 1.8 sec
    Top gear, 50-70 mph: 2.4 sec
    Standing ¼-mile: 11.7 sec @ 126 mph
    Top speed (drag limited): 199 mph (manufacturer estimate)
    Braking, 70-0 mph: 154 ft
    Roadholding, 300-ft-dia skidpad: 0.92 g

    Z06 according to Car & Driver:
    C/D TEST RESULTS:
    Zero to 60 mph: 3.0 sec
    Zero to 100 mph: 6.8 sec
    Zero to 160 mph: 22.9 sec
    Rolling start, 5-60 mph: 3.2 sec
    Top gear, 30-50 mph: 1.7 sec
    Top gear, 50-70 mph: 2.2 sec
    Standing ¼-mile: 11.1 sec @ 127 mph
    Top speed (C/D est): 185 mph
    Braking, 70-0 mph: 128 ft
    Roadholding, 300-ft-dia skidpad: 1.19 g

    There really is no category aside from top speed where the Hellcat will win. The car is about 900 pounds heavier than a Z06. And I think it only wins in top speed because of the level 3 aero on the Z06 (with the Z07 package) which gives it tremendous downforce for the road courses.

    The Hellcat is a great fun car and I love it, but you can't fight 900 pounds of penalty.

    What is your point? The article has a ACR Viper, Porsche and Vette in it. Sorry the Vette don't look so good in comparasion. No Hellcat mentioned. And no Dodge product does less than seven minutes on the Green Monster.

    We have seen all the road and track acceleration times over and over. My 0-60 is better on street tires in a cool day than 3.6 seconds, so they don't mean shiz. It is a drivers race get over it. Who can't break 11 seconds and beat 11.1 seconds in your 1/4 mile time above. Not even the topic of this thread. Enough, the Vette got beat on the road course. We will video more if that this summer and post up for everyone to talk about.

    In the article, the Vette actually posted second fastest time behind the ACR but ahead of the Porsche. They rated the Porsche higher because they said it achieved its results with less horsepower.

    I posted this info because somebody in this thread says the Hellcat is the "faster" car then the Z06, and I just don't see in which category is the car faster. Now if you are talking about one driver being faster than another, or one modified car is faster than another modified car, then that's a totally different subject.

    Yes, and I addressed that in my first post in this thread. Definitely the Hellcat has a higher top speed vs a Z06 with the Level 3 aero that comes with the Z07 package.
