    No, Indigo Blue. I think it looks alright, that red isn't very brilliant in hue IMHO. It is a one of one built so far and they're half way through production.

    The Hellcat and the Demon might be fast in a straight line, but my stock ZR1 will hang with the both of them. A simple supercharger pulley change and a tune and I'll see them in my rearview mirror. Also, I'd like to see them try and pass my ZR1 on a road coarse or chase my azz at 205mph. A Viper don't scare my Vette either ! ! !

    That's a shiny sports car you've got there.

    Have you ever noticed women use a lot explanation points? Maybe they get heard better like that, I don't know because like most men, I don't know much about women other than they smell nice.


    The Demon or Hellcat seems to be the car most want to stack up against, doesn't it?

    The new ZR1 already kicked the new Ford GTs butt . Wonder how bad it could kill a Mopar. There is no Dodge that stacks up to a Corvette ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    That ZR1 is very quick. But, I have a friend who owns a 2012 ZR1 and a new Hellcat Demon. Both are stock, with low miles. The Hellcat Demon ate the ZR1.

    Is there any way you could turn up your rhetoric? :rolleyes:

    Realistically speaking, there's always somebody faster. Probably 99% of the guys on here know that. Some dude that just pieced together a twin turbo LS powered pro touring Vega beat the latest Bugatti today. Tomorrow somebody will beat the Vega with a Tesla. Who really gives a chit?

    Bark all you want. :)

    Surprisingly, it seems like the majority of Hellcat owners are doing mods. The last line is the best stock powered time. Dodge advertised low 11's with factory rubber and high 10's with drag radials. I've read first hand accounts of 10's with stock rubber, but conditions have to be just right. The Demon is a 9 second car from the factory.

    Yes, you nailed it. '08 Challenger, I think it was.

    I wish the chart had cars weight too. They are about 4,400 lbs.

    They’re great cars. Most of our cars would get beat by a cheap crotch rocket. With them (or 2 seat chevys) it’s good to race by seeing who can get 4 people to the next town the fastest. Best to compare apples to apples. By the way, I like them all.

    Last night I got back to the airport from a weekend trip, when I got to my Charger in the garage there was a new Red Demon parked next to me. I guess these Mopars like to stick together, anyway, the car had drag slicks on it that had the consistency of Bologna skins and I could see rubber fragments all over the rear quarters, seems like the owner is enjoying his new toy...

    Don't want to wear out a thread, but I thought some of these colors and names were cool. My bud picked "Garbage Can" while mine was "Toe Tag". Love to see Root Beer on a car though...

    Somebody, with a car just like mine ;-], ran 11.57 @ 124 on Friday at Beech Bend with the first pass the car ever made. Completely stock, pump gas, factory tires, in street mode. One other pass was made. Unfortunately he ;-] spun and then left off. Several Demons were there.

    The Destroyer gray one was running 10 flat (heard it already had the crate PCM and it had the skinnies up front and Hoosiers in the rear) and the other ran 10.80's and looked to have the off the trailer factory wheels and tires.

    Amazing. But how do they get away running those numbers without a cage?
