This "upgrade" makes you a rare bird, indeed, Brian. Most guys upgrade UP TO a Helcat. But you're headed the opposite direction. What's up? We're curious.Hi All
Out of a 2015 Charger Hellcat into a 2018 Challenger R/T 392 ScatPack fully loaded, pitch black,auto. Presently in Brampton waiting for a railcar to ship to BC
Ha... did ya get that, fellas? "The HC had too much power." Imagine that. This comes from someone who's "been there, done that."The Charger HC was great, don't get me wrong...drag strip in the morning-opera in the evening, I've had Vettes, ZL 1(awful car) but the HC just too much power. I love the look of the shaker scat pack and went with it, you can never have too much gun-but you can have too much HP. BTW, wife has a Jeep GC SRT...so now I wait at the mercy of CN Rail. As well, the Challenger more my car than the "families" grocery getter.
I typically did upwards to 70 miles for a night of cruising with my high school buds.The HC was an impulse buy and don't get me wrong, wonderful machine and if you race it-nobody will touch you. But for a street stomp and steer guy...the R/T will be just fine for me. IMHO, the HC was just too much as if you stomped on it, even with the nannies on...it was right on the edge of going wrong. So would I spend another $30k to have a hellcat over a R/T, nope, not for the street. I wouldn't even want to think what a Demon would be like! I'm old enough as well to remember the day when if you had a big block and turned 13's-14's...you had a fast car, that didn't handle, overheated and $10 of fuel for a nights cruising.
