Excellent run! Is this you Newcadman or someone else. Not sure due to the first person narrative.

Definitely not me. A buddy of mine who is a real Mopar/ Hellcat fan and is on their SRT forum sent me this vid and info in an effort to persuade me to sell my V ( which by the way is not going to happen ) !

A little better ET on the same trap speed? Nothing surprising about that. Still can't turn. But the knuckledraggers love it...
They aren't all knuckle-draggers. Most are just ADHD and lose interest in any competition that isn't over in a matter of seconds. :duck:

I do admit to not understanding why anyone would buy a car for the purpose of drag racing. I mean motorcycles are MUCH quicker, with 0-60s in the 2s and quarter miles in the 9s stock even back in the '90s.

They buy cars because they're afraid to fall down on the pavement. The same reason dirt bikers take their precision machines out and fill the works with mud and sand.
