I like a good challenge, but this one I don't get. That's too much effort and expense.

I drove my buddy's hellcat yesterday. It didn't really do anything for me.

It's slower than your car 0-60, and about the same quarter mile. So meh.

I guess? It felt slower than the RX-8. Certainly it's slower than any Tesla in the real world. I knew these things were boats, but you don't really understand just what that means until you drive one. His is the wide body version and it just feels enormous and floppy. It's also geared very tall so it doesn't really feel sprightly.
