I'm just trying to justify the hellcat's msrp. I honestly think it should start at $50k (and scat should be a little lower). I can justify going from scapack (current car, $43k msrp, got it for ~$37k) to $50-53k, but when everything is said and done you're out the door another $30k... Seems steep when a $35k car can keep up with you with minimal mods/no F/I.Who cares...I’m not buying a Mustang. There are a lot of fast cars out there but just not the same feel as a Hellcat even if they are as fast or faster.
The guy in this video literally has only E85 and a tune. If the race was from a dig, I would say OK, the hellcat struggles with traction, but from 60?? I'm very surprised.FBO and E85 18+ 5.0 is a tight race vs a hellcat. Tight enough to where if the hellcat owner sleeps on reaction or starts in wrong gear, the stang will get the W. Now do FBO and E85 to the hellcat and the cat will put buses on the mustang
This exactly, I have ran 3 different FBO, CJ and E85 A10 mustangs, one with SERIOUS weight reduction versus my stock CHallenger Hellcat with a drag Pack and only the weight reduction mustang was a close race tille about 140ish and then I walked away from him. The other two faired a good bit for the first few seconds but didn't come up with any win. This guy ain't telling the truth or all the Hellcat are spinning from the start. So many A10 mustangs swear they could smoke hellcats until they ran me and then they all cried because they say I wasn't stock.....idiots.FBO and E85 18+ 5.0 is a tight race vs a hellcat. Tight enough to where if the hellcat owner sleeps on reaction or starts in wrong gear, the stang will get the W. Now do FBO and E85 to the hellcat and the cat will put buses on the mustang
Don't forget mustangs are lighter by about 1/2 ton. I would say 18+ mustang and 392 are going to be pretty similar in performance on the strip.Who only tunes their car for a new fuel and doesn't do anything else? I've seen the stock GT A10 gives a 392 a run, but I can't see just fuel making up another 200 ponies.
