So kinda like a Trackhawk, then. Looks better on paper with its 707 hp than it runs in real life. Compared to a Challenger anyway.
Oh well, at least your pickup is a 2-door.

Today I passed the 1500 mile mark and opened her up LOL. And well uhm well yeah I opened her up and yeah she's a fast but......well she's a truck you know. Those damn Hellcats spoil it for everything :geek: and I mean anyone thinking their new 150k Ram TRX is going to like uh smoke everyone:whistle::whistle::whistle::whistle::whistle: Yeah good luck since I am driving a 2 door lowered and in so many ways a 2 wheel drive truck. Whats even cooler is I had a chance to race no lie lol a new BMW M5 and Mercedes AMG. Damn those things are fast and DAMNIT I should have had the Redeye today. But oh well and yeah we did some roll racing and yes the Super Snake blasts and yeah she sounds sweet and yeah uh huh as the M5 and AMG blast me at about 100 and the Super Snake just like uh yeh the speedo stops at 120 and not sure but the M5 and AMG 150 in my eyes plus. So a huge warning for anyone buying the TRX your going to be smoked by many many others and sure its cool and I really love my Super Snake for what she is. But she is a tank going down the road and yes a FAST Tank at that but no way a GT500 and or Hellcats by any means. And keep in mind this past March I ran a Super Snake Lifted 4 door 4 wheel drive and obliterated him in my GT500. Summing it up trucks are trucks and cars are cars but nothing replaces the Hellcats kick in the ass fun or GT500s as well. And oh yeh I added some Carbon Fiber look rear louvres today.

If it's any consolation m5 and e63 from a dig are a big no no for any form of hellcat including a demon on the street.

On a roll hellcat all day baby, redeye is just icing on the cake.

Fast trucks are just that, trucks that are fast.

Truly awesome CC. What does it drive like. I would have though in 4WD it would grip and go. I did have thoughts about trying to get one of these as a replacement for my daily driver Lightning but they are a big chunck of money. What sort of gas mileage are you getting just in nornal driving out of interest.

Thank you for the compliment and she is pretty stiff and will beat you up. The race suspension is just that so on bumpy or lousy roads shes like riding a Bronco lol. Gas mileage is 18 and possible 20 if you keep your foot out of her. I love the truck and if she wasn’t so stiff then I would say nice daily. And or if your commute is nice roads then yes but otherwise debatable. And the rear leaf spring setup is not a good design since you will drag snd hit things trust me on that.

Your thoughts are much appreciated CC. I think the Lightning continues to be the better option. I'm on my fifth one and I average about 25,000 miles a year. Definately don't want something that beats me up. many thanks and enjoy :)

Thanks for making this video CC. It would be great to see another video when you can start to really get into it. I guess you have driven a Ligtning over the years. How would that compare on ride comfort etc. Does the shelby have apple carplay ?

Thanks and yes it has Apple Car Play. I never owned a Lightning nor drove one but my guess is the lightning was a softer ride.

It’s a Shelby hellcat Daytona 500 sport truck 😉. I like that interior looks great. I saw one in person the other day was the darker gray like your 500 just got done being buffed and waxed at the local car wash. Definitely one of the nicest pickups I’ve ever seen. And I’m not really a truck guy I don’t usually bat an eye to pickups but was impressed at the looks in person

Is your truck lowered or can you raise and lower the suspension like that stock?
She has a customized race suspension and is lowered. No raising her higher and a worker of mine said damn air bag her lol.
