Beautiful car! I have a B5 Blue Challenger (2015) and Love it. I don't own a Vette anymore but someday may be a used one. My only complaint with the car is the weight (obvious). Even not being a Hellcat the Scat pulls pretty darn good all things considering.

I had a C5 from 2001-2011 then bought a C6Z , sold that to free up money to by my house then few years ago decided to try out the Challenger when the Scat Pack came out. I have not ruled out a used Hellcat when I get sick of my Scat Pack. I just love the B5 Blue color still and not ready to upgrade yet.

Driven a HC? You will upgrade once you do.

I had a C6Z before this

Nice pics. Don't quite get the artistic value of the cooling towers but other pics are pretty cool.

A stock Hellcat requires skill to launch properly. Too much HP for the tires. A widebody Hellcat has 305 tires.
Stock Scat Pack vs Stock Hellcat times only vary by a few tenths.

If everything is equal, the Hellcat will win every time and by a wide margin. Also, don't forget Trap speeds.

having owned my Scat Pack now going on 4 years I can attest to this. It's really no contest if the Hellcat driver can manage the power and hook up.

This is very much like getting a GS vs a Z06. Might as well get the z06. And in this case, get the Hellcat!!!

My brother wants a scatpack, cant swing a hellcat. But hes prob saving up for his midlife crisis car (AMG GT).

If I were ever in the market for a newer Mopar it would be either a Sublime or F8 Green Shaker Scat Pak Widebody 6 speed Challenger. Bar none........ My brother just bought a new Hellcat Plum Crazy Widebody 6 speed with Red seatbelts and calipers. Looks awesome believe it or not. He's also got a '17 Go Green Shaker 5.7 6 speed as well-1 of 1 of 53 in Canada. Single and makes too much money.

if he has the Hellcat there's no reason to have the other ones to sell that. Also how is it a one of one but also one of 53? LOL sounds like somebody just wants to brag just brag about nonsense.

Curious, why did you go back to a C5?

I love Hellcats and yours is awesome! I've gotten to do the Mecum Dodge thrill ride at a few spots around the country and had a lot of fun w/those professional drivers taking you around. i really like the Dodge cars. Still cant believe how loud these things are stock. I just saw pics of the new widebody charger today. I'm really trying to justify a scat pack as a daily in Ohio. I think it will be ok w/winter tires.
