Forums are not letting me edit the post title. I posted a fresh working link and the YouTube channel has new videos added : - ) !!!

Let me know what ya think guys. Wish i had more videos because there were a lot of good times. Some surprising V's and a few close loses against some highly modified cars. The winners were even impressed it ran really good for a while.

I think it's pretty obvious the Hellcat owner likes to just roast his tires instead of launch. I'm not even sure he was seriously racing that was so bad lol.

I'd gladly take on whoever's in that vid on my only mod of Nitto drag radials...much different story then :) lol I've already absolutely roasted two Sti's in my 1100 miles that I've put on my Hellcat so far. :) Wasn't even close...put them in slow motion. I think it's pretty obvious that a regular WRX should get smoked pretty bad. But good kill. lol

stock hellcats aren't that quick....seen tons of them trapping like 122 mph with small mods. They wake up as you add parts but in near stock trim they are pretty sluggish. Don't see why an STI dragging one is unbelievable or worthy of a ricer excuse.

So running 10.7's and 0 - 60 in the high 2's stock with just drag radials is sluggish? lmao

lol using the glory run as your standard is like stock turbo SRT4 guys telling people about the 10 sec stock turbo pass (or referencing a low 13 second stock pass) as if that applies to majority of cars . Figured someone so old would know better than to bench race like that lol

Truth is there are PLENTY hellcats running high 11s @ 122 (nowhere near 0-60 in 2 seconds lol) at ANY drag strip on any given day.....let me know if you need some examples lmao


PLENTY MORE where that came from too

No glory runs my friend. It's the norm on drag radials at the strip period. You're just being ignorant. Anyone who can't hit those times is having trouble driving. If you want to post vids here:

Kids first time at the strip, intake (which adds no power) and MT Drag radials. Also his FIRST pass so it's not hard:


2 hellcats running high 10's with just DR here:

I could keep going. There's pages of videos of stock Hellcats running these times with drag radials. It's a common result posted on Hellcat.org. I think that would disqualify a 10.7 or 10.8 as "glory runs". It's common. And 0 - 60 in 2.9 or 2.8 is common running these times. I'll remember this thread when I head to Rock Falls in June. :)

Like I said.....tons of hellcats running 12s and 11s @ 120-122. It's a stock automatic car ...stop acting like it requires any special talent to drive it

Have you driven a HC? It's actually not the easiest launching it even with the Auto on stock tires. Drag radials make life a lot easier as you can see in the vids. It's extremely easy to screw the launch and screw the run on stock tires.

Did you even watch the vids? Everyone including a guy going to the strip for his first time easily get high 10's on drag radials (a 10.7 at 127.8 on his SECOND pass). The people you're seeing must be on street tires as that what those times fall in place with. Low 11's.

If you think (because this is what you originally said) that Hellcat's incapable of high 10's, are sluggish and run 12's all day, and that a 10.7 is a "glory run" then you're clueless. :hi:

Street tires dont cause the car to trap 122 lmao

I didnt say the car isnt capable of a 10.....I said there are a PLETHORA of them trapping under 124 mph and running high 11s

Stop acting like a low 120 mph automatic car is some kind of hard car to drive lol.

Rewatch the vids. Nothing close to low 120's in any of them and nothing remotely close to even low 11's let alone high 11's.

Plethora? So you've seen a majority of them run? Haha! That's extremely uncommon my friend. I rarely see times like posted on hellcat.org. I've seen a ton run and when you see high 11 or low 12 it's because they fucked the launch up and can't get it to hook. Drag radials makes that all go away.

Again have you tried to launch a HC on stock tires on the street? Please answer this, if not your argument is invalid saying it's easy. You're trying to launch 700hp on 275 wide Pzero garbage tires. Again, it's extremely easy to blow any run on stock tires like what was posted in this thread. Hell stomping on it from 40 is a challenge...

Every HC owners first mod should be 305 Nitto 555r's. Whole different car then.


In any case, in the original vid the power said the Hellcat's tires where totally bald. Overall pretty embarrassing for the Hellcat owner. lol He should have blown the damn doors off a regular WRX. I ran into a Sti not long ago and we went from a roll. I rolled into the throttle giving him a slight jump and proceeded to put bus lengths on him instantly. Wasn't.Even.Close

Last time.....drag radials don't cause your trap speed to be in the low 120s. Yes I've driven the car before and cars MUCH FASTER (including my bs neon lmao) so yeah I know that it's not trapping 122 due to street tires lmao.

Here are 6 examples of Hellcats trapping low 120s....I know they're all broken according to you or some silly shit. I think even if I posted 20-25 you'd still be saying that they don't trap low 120s lol. The idea you don't realize there is a spread in trap speed with just about all cars is hilarious.....they are not all identical; some cars run better or worse and that's why pretending they all trap high 120s and run 10's is moronic. Even SRT4's trapped anywhere from 99 to 103 stock....but somehow you think the Hellcat are all trapping the same lmao







Now go ahead and create 6 ricer excuses for these....

.
First off lets get something clear, we need to know if the Hellcats in the vids are A8's or M6's. M6's are considerably slower. I guess I'm referrring to A8's which I failed to mention.

But I see you nit picked HC's with shit drivers and all your vids are 12 second runs...no where near the norm for Hellcats. A majority of the times I see in person and on Hellcat.org for A8's are high 10's on DR's and low 11's on street tires.

Bottom line if one person can run high 10's on DR or low 11's on street tires....then the vids you nit picked of of people running 12's in the same car means somethings wrong and they're not driving it to it's full potential. OR are there factory freaks out there? Cmon Could definitely be a shitty M6 driver though.

And there...in bold, you just contradicted your original statement. You stated most trap low...so is your statement just as moronic as me saying most trap higher? Haha! There can Most definitely be spreads in trap times, transmission, heat/humidity, elevation etc etc And I know DR's/60ft times only primarily affect ET...sorry if my prior comments seemed like I was referrring to traps.

But again, a majority of times posted on hellcats.org and what I've seen in person are all 125+ traps and high 10's to low 11's. 12's are a joke and not the cars potential.
We could nit pick slower vs fast vids all day. The fact the there's a shit ton of vids with the time I qouted means you're grabbing vids of shit drivers or one of the other elements I mentioned earlier.

All in all I think you might have something against HC's, as you seem to want to down play them labeling them as "sluggish"...referring to a 707hp car. HA!

From what I've seen it really boils down to the driver. Cars like that come stock with crazy amount of horsepower require a driver mod and tire mod. This guy wasn't used to the car yet but the Hellcats can run nice if driven properly.

If my Hellcat trapped 120-122 I would take it back to the dealer to see what's wrong. 120-122 is typical M5 trap territory, not Hellcat which is typically 125 - 127.

Bone stock, first time at the track, I ran 11.4 @ 126 with a 2.0 sixty foot. Got that down to 11.2 @ 127.

Added an intake and tune and hit 10.7 @ 133 still with a shitty 1.9 sixty foot with NT555R drag radials. With better tires or even just better launch technique I'm sure I can hit a low to mid 10. You try to build an SRT to hit those numbers that motor will last maybe a week.

I also find it funny an SRT4 owner would call a Hellcat sluggish. I owned an SRT4 a decade ago and it was one of the worst cars I ever had. Check my post history, had it upgraded with a bigger turbo and supporting mods. I will NEVER get a front wheel drive turbo vehicle ever again.

In our Orlando street racing group SRT4s are a laughing stock, they are not competitive whatsoever and the supposed "built" ones only want to do 60 or 80 rolls LOL (and still get beat by GTRs, Hellcats, E63's, etc..)

The only people buying SRT4's now are those that can't afford anything else. Something breaks every weekend. SRT4s have, unfortunately, entered "ricer" category much like the turbo honda civics.

I see an SRT4 on the street and they see my badge and tires, they get scared. I daily drive with wider wheels and 305 drag radials. I have a pump gas tune and race gas tune with shift points raised to 6400 rpms (from stock 6000).

I have a youtube channel with a bunch of videos starting from when I was stock:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0wT6KnGsWQDCriesVm9EsA

Keep on an eye on the playlist as my videos are added by SGTR whenever he records one of my races.

Edit: LOL even my "new" sig is old.

Oh, in your "street racing group", goodness, do the members have time to sell your girl scout cookies on top of late night "street racing"? It is truly difficult to put in words just how fucking stupid you sound by putting together your street racing bravado while bagging on the SRT-4.

You go on a full half cocked rant about a car that costs less than half what the Hellcat costs brand new. Then you take it even further by insinuating that even built, the SRT-4 is a shitbox. That's fine, there are a good number of these "shitboxes" that will eat your car up and spit it out.

Just because you once owned one doesn't stamp your ticket to come back here and act like a shitbag simply because one person is bagging on your car. It is truly unfortunate because the Hellcat is such an awesome machine, that some of the owners are dickless wonders like yourself.

Next time you want to go full retard on a rant, try not to forget where you are doing your rant at.
