Not sure if this was directed at me. In 2006 I dated a mixed race Cuban friend of mine for a few months.

if the V is a 6" extension, the MeowMix has to be at least an 8"

Thanks man! It's surely getting there. Need to buy a sheet of the lamin-x and totally cover up the side markers. Going to debadge the DODGE from the trunk lid this weekend and probably order a set up the newer SRT badges for the front and rear that have the hellcat head.

Riding in the V sounds a lot better than riding in the pussy from hell!

Not in the market for a new vehicle right now. Anything with an SRT on it is out of my price range.

Would I love to drive one...yep...Do I want to it to sully my current driving enjoyment...nope.

I didn't like these at first because of the weight but came around over time. It won't put down a blistering lap time, but it does make you feel good and laugh when driving it.

Not many cars out there today with such a purpose as it's hard to market. Although, they did still have to use the horsepower figure.

I drove my bosses' hellcat today and that has more power than what i would know what to do with. He has the auto. Putting your foot to the floor makes 100 come so quick. At 25-30 and punching it lays a patch of rubber quickly. He told me to take it for a drive and tell him what i thought.

The downshifts are pretty cool, i enjoyed that. The brakes shave off speed nicely. The center of gravity seems to be a bit higher than what i would have been used to in the 911. The power was so nice and easy to apply. I didn't have a lot of seat time to get comfortable but it rolled nicely.

The one downside is that you have every knucklehead driving a camaro or rustang revving their motors at you.

My foot was to the floor a couple times and it pushes you forward pretty quick. I didn't have a chance to change the other settings to track mode.

Did you play with the manual shifting at all or leave it in auto? Manual shifting with the paddles is pretty fun, especially in sport and track mode. With the transmission in track mode (even in auto) it shifts very hard when you apply more then 1/2 power.

I haven't had too much interaction with the Camaro and Mustang drivers except once. The day I did the 67-98 video posted, I had a guy with a Mustang coming up next to me on the interstate, revving and making his car lurch forward. I stomped on the gas for a few seconds and he wouldn't come back up beside me after that.

Those are pretty awesome from what I've seen online. Have yet to see one in person though. What did they have it priced at?

I would get that once in a while in the Vagon as well. I think some people don't want to race, they just want to see you step on it once b/c they know what you're driving.

I did use the paddle shifters once to see how quick it would downshift. It wasn't as instant as a ferrari or lamborghini, but it was quick enough. I did the same thing at highway speeds. I was harder on it the 2nd or 3rd time as i was a tad bit more comfortable knowing what it might do. With that much power, i didn't know how badly is was going to spin the wheels at 70mph and i didn't want to find out the first time.
There are few factory cars out there that could match the straight line quickness this has. I think i escaped without harming anyone or myself.

When you first enable the paddles there is a delay...but once you are in that mode, its pretty damn good.

Wait - you're telling me there are crips inside of the transmission of the new NSX?

Beautiful

man that is one big reverse camera

how many inches in diameter are the exhaust tips? Are they bigger or smaller than a GT-R?

Does the FLEX always have to photobomb the HellCat pics?

Wow - debadged look really nice! It does bring a bit of attention to the backup camera. I wonder if there's some kind of tinted clear logo you could put over it without hurting visibility that much.
