I beg to differ, some people know how to drive.
Put it on a track with a Z06 and see what happens...[/quote] I don't recall saying that it would beat a Z06 at the track, that's an assumption on your part. It is a good handling car, for It's size and power, if the driver understands that it doesn't do corners like a Z06.

These cars do handle well although I'm sure not as well as a Z06. I think they're an excellent balance of handling and comfort, I like the higher ride height on my Challenger, it's really easy to get in and out of. I know it sounds silly, but I hate riding on the ground and twisting myself into a pretzel to get in and out of a vehicle. My Challenger has no problem taking on and off ramps at a pretty good speed, and feeling extremely stable in the process.

A step down? In which way? The Hellcat looks better, sounds better, rides better, with more power and a nicer interior.
Is it a C6z06 or a C7z06? Looks being subjective, the Hellcat and a C7z are pretty similar in 1/4 times but the vettes turn a lot better than that boat.

If going around corners is the objective, find a nice example of the 5th gen Viper ACR.

Vipers are nice. In fact, I don't know why Dodge doesn't bring it back and put a Hellcat or a Demon motor in it...then they'd have a car that's fast in a straight line and around corners...

Nah, the V10 is unique. In a straight line, the difference between a 5th gen Viper and a C7 Z06, is splitting hairs. With one or the other just edging out the other depending on the phase of the moon... I've found that most owners are like me, and have modified the V10 for more power anyway.

Yes, that is the question, Charger or Challenger? I personally love the looks of the Charger.

The Trackhawk is nice, but the wife and I preferred the X6 M. If you're in the market for a sporty SUV, drive both before deciding.

I have a 2018 Charger Hellcat. Here is a link to a Hellcat forum I frequent with a sticky on known problems: https://www.hellcatforum.org/threads/information-of-known-hellcat-issues-reported-by-owners.3557/ Just make sure you don't buy a Hellcat that has been tuned, abused and put back to stock. My build quality hasn't been too bad except for the passenger side fender isn't perfect. The Charger is a great passenger car especially on long trips. OP, feel free to ask me anything on this thread or PM me. [Linked Image]
