Too true! But I read elsewhere that there are issues with too much wheelspin in the 1/4. As mentioned, put some drag slicks on there and bet the time would go down.

Even with drag radials the car is severely traction limited. Look at the trap speed. It's much less affected by the driver's skill level...

The price has been reported at 60k and at 59k, the difference is likely destination charges, etc. But for a while these will sell well OVER sticker price as stealerships gouge clients...

It seems the 11.2 is actually over performing for its trap speed though? Lots of cars on that list that should hook up better have the same ET with higher trap speeds?

We were running 129-131MPH depending on weather and that was about 10.20-10.40, so they are not far off when drag radials get put on. 60K? That's it? Still a lot of money, but seems like a bargain compared to other super high horsepower cars.

It's not gouging. Buyers always set the price. If buyers feel it's worth the premium, they'll pay it. If not, they won't.

And it should be noted they are HOT sellers, the stealers fight over allocation...

The intention of this comment was meant as a joke. This is crazy performance for a car that is under 100K too bad this is still out of my budget.

The Hellcat charger may be my next kid hauler. A charger wouldn't be my first choice, but they drive well in current trim levels. 700hp and massive brakes would make it that much better. And Uconnect.

Yes, someone with skill, and M/T drag radials, in great 'air', on a prepped track, will put this beast into the mid-low 10s. Maybe even quicker than that with skinnies on the front, full on drag slicks, and a little suspension work (i.e.; removed front sway bar, etc.). wink

There is something to be said about a real back seat and trunk though!
