This is what people don't realize about the Hellcat. It has so much power it takes a lot of practice to get a good launch. If you go back and look at the testing videos even the professional drivers had a hard time launching on a well prepared track.

Is that an A8 or a 6 speed manual?

Sounded like the A8. Definitely needs some DR's or a lot more practice. All the car magazines said starting in 2nd on the A8 yeilded he beat times through the 1/4 mile.

He needs to shut off the traction control and at least do a small burnout. Then turn it back on if he wants. That looked like the tires didn't even get cleaned off

So is your new "intel" that a manual cant run an 11.9 at a drag strip?
Not saying that a manual can't run 11.9 (don't want any part of this argument), but the owner of the car has confirmed it is an A8. :)

No burn out & he walked it off the line..
Put a set of 17" DR's on there & blast off & we might see 11.00 territory..
(if the drive shaft holds up..)

We have already seen quicker than that on DR's

Seeing the driveshaft problems, I might go one step further and get slicks to better absorb driveline shock even with an automatic.
