Down you go, with a lot less hp...this is whatcha call a hole shot win and proof you can't buy experience. :)

It doesn't play on my phone. I guess I will have to take a look later.

Too bad...it's a good race, he was catching up by the end but, not enough real estate.

Did the Hellkitty trap 121? If so, that is the slowest hellcat I have ever seen. Most trap around 124 - 128 MPH.

Still good run in your Mustang. Any idea what your 1/8 was? Looked like it came off the line nicely.

Yep, 121. Even with auto, you still need to know what you are doing and, the air wasn't great that night either. I too, have seen many Hellcats do better than this guy did, at this same track. He seemed to be trying hard but, maybe I had him demoralized, lol.

1/8th was ok, 7.42 at 96.58. The car still leaves too soft, bc of the stock torque converter. 1.7 60 here. Obviously I can still cut an ok light, which was the source of the win here.

6.4 pounds/hp for the Hellcat v. 8-9 pounds/hp for an unassisted Mustang should make this no contest for the Hellcat...even with 100 shot like I'm using here, I'm still down on power to weight compared to the HC and, that's where I needed to beat him at the lights and I did.

Wait 'til they get a new platform and more HP in 2018. The kitty will grow up.

Well, I may just up the shot to 150 and shoot for 10s on my stock car; I figure if the 100 took a second off, the additional 50 may give me the 1/2 need for 10s :)

I have no experience at 1/4 mile racing but I thought reaction time was not included in the ET. Thought the start of the ET was tripped by the sensor at the start line.:hide:

????

Reaction time determines who left first when the lights go down. I dropped-kicked this guy and that's what often wins races, not the ultimate ET each car pulls.

If this would've been a street race, he would've beat the Hellcat and no one would say "Oh, but the Hellcat didn't take off till afterwards, doesn't count rematch".

If I saw the times correctly, the Hellcat was faster. You outperformed the Charger though. They had to run you down, and ran out of room.

Yes, that's correct...you can't buy skill as an option with your 80k Dodge.
