    Default Pobst Hustles Hellcat Muscle @ "Streets"

    Go to 5 min 5 sec. Better in-car video than most MT reviews.

    A lot slower than I thought it would be. Interesting.
    Do you understand?

    Me too. Tires probably had a lot to do with it, but I am pretty sure that the comparison cars were similarly shod.

    The Hellcat powertrain is astonishing. So much power and acceleration at any speed.

    That is one of the cheesiest designed cars I have seen since Pontiac went tits up. The interior looks like it was modified using knock-off bits from Ebay. The exterior is no better.

    stick some same size NT01s, and watch it drop 4s. Looked like Randy was tip toeing as fast as he could around the track since he just couldn't get any traction in and out of turns. Barely 75% throttle anywhere besides the 2 straights, rest was sub 50% throttle lol.
    With that much power, at least throw some decent sticky tires on them to not kill the driver...

    I think its 500lbs too heavy for sow anyways lol.

    "Tip toeing" - very good description of Randy's answer to the big hp vs. modest grip dilemma.

    Meh. The Hellcat's a drag racer, not a circuit racer.

    I'm impressed, Randy went down the chicane pretty well in a big car he doesn't own.

    Still slower on the back straight than the NISMO GTR.
