    They stopped by this evening chatted for a bit then let them check out the hellcat.

    Asked them if they wanted to go for a spin, my fiance's sister said yes!

    So we roll to the on ramp of the freeway and I start at 10mph and said ready! The car lost some traction at the punch but I let go then BAM!!!!!

    it hooked up punched it again!!!

    My fiance's sister said OOOOOOOOOOO, I shift next gear she goes OOOOOOOOO, shift next gear and again OOOOOOOOOOOOO !!! Her boyfriend was planted into the seat holding onto the bar by the window LOL he was like woooooooh man that was so fast!!

    I felt like tunnel vision and things were flying by so fast it was like six flags theme park astroworld, I felt like my guts were smashed into my seat.

    Adrenaline rush still 30 minutes later I'm not sleepy anymore.

    Is the Hellcat REEEEALLY that crazy fast?

    I hope so... Hopefully it's not like the 392 that felt quick when it was new but now that I'm 'use to it' sometimes it doesn't feel as fast.

    Can someone become acclimatized to the speed of the Hellcat or is this thing just balls crazy no matter how many times you drive it?

    My 392 only felt truly fast if I was in the right part of the power band - is the Hellcat fast everywhere or are there 'dead spots' where it doesn't immediately respond? (like the 392)

    You will of course eventually get over some of the initial shock factor. That said, even after 3300 miles the thing still amazes me when I push it hard. Highway pulls (where traction is usually less of an issue) are simply insane. During my break-in, in my on-board video I did a quick punch at 70. Based on the video and the speedometer, it went from 70-92 in around 1.5 seconds. The engine is broken-in now and seems even more responsive. I'm not going to say what my logged top speed is, but it pulls HARD, even in triple digits.

    I'll just quote the SRT Engineer on a TFL Charger video: "Hellcat pulls HARD up to 180".

    That's a good point. You get used to stuff and what was once crazy feels normal after a while. I wonder if 707 HP EVER feels normal. I really have no idea...
