While I am sad to be selling the Cobra and I am super pumped for a car I signed papers on last night! I always loved/wanted a Competition Orange Terminator, but the cars are old and still going for big $$$$. I wanted something with a lot of power stock and capability for the future.

I found a car in Michigan that I was entertaining, but before driving out there I wanted to do a test drive. I figured if I was going to do a test drive I might as well pick a car that I would be potentially interested in. I was looking at earlier model year Hellcats....I wanted to stay away from 2015's as the first year model and the 2017+ were out of my price range. Reviews on the 2016's looked good. I showed up at the dealer at 8PM and told the guy I was interested in test driving the car. He initially was hesitant as they get a lot of folks wanting to take cars for joy rides, but then walked into the dealer to grab the keys.

Guy gets in to start up the car and I am standing behind it. The car fires up and I was blown away at the exhaust sound note, sounds so nasty! I knew from that moment I might be hooked. Got the car pulled off of the front row and in for a test drive. Car is an absolute monster and if I am being honest I pussy footed the car most of the drive. The one time I tried rolling into the throttle in 2nd gear it just obliterated the tires! :rofl: The car is big, but doesn't feel big. It is a big purchase, but this is something I will very much enjoy!

2016 Challenger Hellcat
Color: Go Mango
Miles: 4,500
Transmission: Manual

I got a hell of a deal on this car I feel, very happy with the purchase. Here is a pic below.....cannot wait to detail this thing!

Go with Toyo R888R
What is the difference between those and the standard R888?

I would like something with a slightly stiffer sidewall, not a full blown drag radial.

The et street ss is a solid over all tire, might not last a real long time on a banger car, I make it 7-8k miles on them and quite a few track outings a year, been driving in the rain a lot lately with them as well

Congrats on your purchase. I can’t say I love The Hellcats with all the problems I had with mine but when it was drivable it was a Beasty Cadillac.
