    Sure, and I should have elaborated...both cars have similar ride handling, engine dynamics, exhaust sound..but just due to the poorer visibility attributes in the Challenger, it made driving the Charger "feel" different..even if it was just in my head.

    Stomp the pedal, they both go like a raped ape. Handling on tight turns, corners..again both are neck and neck - from my experience. I drove both trim models and after I test drove the Challenger first, and then the Charger, it was a no brainer for me.

    That's fairly untrue. They both do pretty well for their size and bulk.

    I didn't drive the charger. What did it for me with the challenger was how it felt, to me, like an updated old school musclecar. I still feel like that. Give Dodge modern tech in 1970, the current challenger is pretty much what they'd make.

    Ah, that's what I was thinking but I wasnt sure if you thought one felt quicker or handled better.

    Poop pack is such a horrible name for a car. I can't stand hearing people say "scat". Gross

    On a side note, do they make manual trans Chargers?

    A V6 camaro 1LE ran about the same time around VIR as a hellcat charger, and VIR is a power track. The chassis that those cars are sitting on is ancient in automotive terms, and wasnt really that great to begin with. Huge power is getting those things remotely decent lap times. Nothing else.

    The Camaro is an actual modern sportscar, and a superbly handling one at that.

    God at < $35k I'd be tempted like crazy since we get their supplier pricing shit on top of that crap.

    Be fair; the V6 1LE runs incredibly well with all that grip.

    The platform certainly isn't a corner carver, but it does handle well for its size and plenty well for street use.

    It will be interesting to see what the wide body Challenger can do on the better factory tires.

    I'm loving these Hellcats more and more each time I see them in person.

    I was at a local cars and coffee event yesterday and a Hellcat did a first through fourth rolling burnout leaving the place. Absurd.
