DD I will say SRT all day long. When you say track the Hellcat should rock 1/4 mile but that is lot of speed and power for a door slammer with no cage. Also if you can hook it up. I am strong believe in once a car goes over 500HP it is actually slower on a road course. Why I picked a SRT with electronic suspension and a 6 spd manual. More than enough power to get you into trouble fast if you loose respect. The Hellcat is going to be struggling to find hook up and will be all over the track after 2 laps of spinning tires. I drove a couple and could have bought one for about 4K more than SRT if I wanted one. Dealer has 13 of them. So much for the collectability. SRT is very well balanced from the factory. Add the beefier roll bars and front and rear strut braces and you got your self a very capable road course car. Probably as good or better than 70's Trans Am race.car. Power is pretty close but the edge to the race car. Handling and traction goes to the modern car hands down. Brakes- No contest modern car. Weight advantage race car. If you are just about drag racing and smoking the tires at 80MPH the Hellcat is for you. First I would suggest shopping insurance first. My buddy just got his bill. 3 times the money than to insure his 360 Ferrari Spider which is worth more! Its the #1 car now wrecked within 5 miles of the dealership. Once he say the his insurance bill "Looks like I will burn up a set rear tires and be trading this baby in". All depends what you at looking for. Roasting the tires at 80 is pretty cool the first couple of times. Then it just gets expensive.
