The point is you can hold your own with a Hellcat on the street if he gets too much wheel spin at the line. Trust me and don’t get psyched out. You can compete with anyone! Also note they did not average in or tape all runs as some times were truly embarrassing. In a street race things get interesting as the street changes things. A pity now that we live in a 1984 world and welcomed it in with our cell phones, that killed street racing. A pity that...More a matter of perfect conditions and prep than the car or driver being weak. 2.9 is a halo run.
Beating someone that isn't racing you isn't really winning much. Otherwise I'm dusting Vettes, Lambos, and Mclarens on the weekly. The only car I can say I for sure pulled on is my friend's Challenger RT and much longer and the power difference would have caught him up.
It's that pd blower. I tried like heck to get good 0-60 times after the LMS Magnuson blower and there is just too much torque unless you have drag radials or slicks. Sure, once you are going 60 on a dry road with good tires it's a blast, but actually my 15 was more fun with just the LMS tune 0-60 in the 4.3. I haven't been able to pull that off with the Supercharger. 4.5 is my best so far.I found that Hellcat vid. She got between 4.5-4.7 0-60 in a car that claims 2.9. After 30 attempts she got a 4.3. This has nothing to do with her being a woman, just the real world vs. the advertised claims:
I just traded in my 2018 Grand Sport Convertible M7 for a 19 GT M6. I had major back surgery and had a hard time getting in and out of the vette. Not at all disappointed in the GT. Roomier and rides better than the GS. The clutch and stock shifter on the vette sucked. Had 3 vettes and put MGW's in all of them.At least get a Grand Sport. It's a massive upgrade over the Stingray.

That is a 2015 model year Hellcat. I don't think Chrysler claimed 2.9 seconds 0-60 back in 2015. I think it was the Hellcat Demons that claimed 2.9 seconds. The 2015 Hellcat was tested 0-60 around 3.7 seconds, which is still much faster than the videos you posted.Turns out the gal is faster than the guys. This Hellcat ran 5-5.5 with one driver. He got out frustrated and two pros could only get 4.5-5.02 or so. Last run they kicked the fat passenger out and went even slower. Where’s the 2.9. Where’s the beef...
I have to tell you, with the money that you saved from owning the vet I strongly strongly encourage you to put a Whipple on it. Lethal performance is having a sale on the whipples I think on the 6th. It just runs so good and the drivability is like stock it's amazing. It'll only add about a hundred pounds to the car and make all those long gears and high RPM band so so so much fun!I just traded in my 2018 Grand Sport Convertible M7 for a 19 GT M6.

Get the GT500... most obvious answer ever lol,Not a Mustang vs. thread or inter-model thread.
Anyway I was at a dealer lot and noticed the V6s are holding their value where I live. Like as used 2016 is asking more than I paid new for my 2017 V6. The dealers here are also for 2018, bringing in base GTs with upgraded radios or PP1. I actually, seriously, considered moving into a V8 if they would give me my money back on the V6 and not screw me somewhere else. I bought it from fleet sales so this could actually happen. I could get a second chance here!
The rub is that if I go 5.0 again I will give up getting a Corvette. The V6 was a DD and the Vette would be a weekend. But the GT would do both.
So what do you guys think? And don’t screw around as I can actually do this. The only concern is the motor trouble on the new GTs. My V6 is absolutely trouble free and I kind of feel bad to give up a car that is a perfect DD. So should I keep this and get a Vette or go cheap and trade in?
