Challengers Hellcat vs. Stingray Corvette.
Which one is hotter? Hellcat, or Stingray? Well, if you are familiar with driving, you will probably, bet on Stingray. Z06 Chevy Corvette Stingray is charged with 6.2 liter engine and 650 horses. 8-gear automatic tranny.0-60 Stingray shoots is just 3.0 seconds, fake information, literally. In real road conditions 3.5 – 3.9 seconds, tested many times. Logically, Chevy is lighter, aerodynamic, and as a result, it must be faster. What do we have on the other side?
Dodge Hellcat, it look meaner, but let`s glance through specs. Hellcat has the engine of the same displacement, 6.2 liter, but it charged with phenomenally 707 horses. The same 8-gear automatic transmission, like in Chevy. Dodge is bigger, meaner, and has heavier weight. Both cars are RWD, acceleration on both of them is like on jet plane. Well, let`s see, who`s the best? First line-up from rolling, step on the gas, and Stingray eats the dust! Hellcat did it very simple.
Probably Chevy driver just missed the moment. Second shot and situation is quite the same. Chevy has a good jump, but Dodge has long lasting acceleration. I am very disappointed by Chevy, how could Supercar lose in front of Muscle car?

Maybe Stingray has problem with the gasket. Gasket between steering wheel and Driver`s seat. Or, maybe, Chevy`s 8-gear transmission, engine`s power is “suffocated” in this tranny. I think, Stingray`s driver is quite frightened of his car, because he hits brake when other cars appear on horizon. Man, you have Corvette! You can overtake from both sides any car, and fit in smallest gaps between them, nobody with Dodge cannot do this, even in his dreams.
Dodge is good only on straight stripes. This is really powerful ride, but it is built for drag, and not for real racing.
However, Dodge looks hotter, and if I would choose between Stingray and Hellcat, I would choose, probably, Dodge!
