    Technology has become so advanced you can drive a reliable 707hp car and get 20mpg... All for $60k.

    Yeah, but you can haul more with your truck and they probably weigh the same. ;)

    Traction issues mostly with stock tires (all of 275 wide on the Hellcat), same as the GT500. Runs high tens on DRs (picks up .4 to a 10.8 from a 11.2, but only gains one MPH) with no other mods, just like the GT500 picks up a bunch with better tires.

    I went to the "SRT Experience" earlier this year, we spent an entire day of back to back events with SRT's that were not modified in any way, we pushed these cars to their limits and not a single failure

    That alone made me happy with my SRT purchase

    I'm a fan of the looks of these cars but we all know how Chrysler pumped up the numbers on this car. I'd be interested in some road test vs gt500 and others.

    I read a review on this by Top Gear that said it handles and brakes pretty well too... and it's only 500 pounds more than the Mustang people... Everyone talks like its literally a ton more.

    umm 500lbs is a lot. Especially when in drag racing every 100lbs comes out to "about" a tenth of a second. So thats roughly half a second slower than a comparable car thats 500lbs lighter.

    It's a nice car I'll admit, but it's just not my cup of tea.
