    So modded GTR vs modded Hellcat. The title actually is very vague. It truly doesn't say it all. Do you have a GTR and a Z06 or do you have some kind of morphodite GTR/ZO6?

    Come to drag strip on Friday night in Baytown.

    Or honestly just cruise on any major freeway Tues/Thurs/Fri/Sat late at night.....lol. You will run into one.

    It's a big car town.

    Just drive around Katy on a Friday or Saturday night after midnight.

    Where you'll get laughed at with anything less than 700whp.

    All those cool 1320 videos? Most come from that area.

    Haha, sorry for being vague. I'm not looking to win or lose any races....just have fun. There are some stock gtrs, modded GTRs (none with built motors) and a c6z with bolt ons. This is just for fun as the lot of my group of friends have never run one. I'll check out the baytown strip also!

    Not sure why it matters. I have a GTR with upgraded turbos on E85. My friends have FBOE85 GTRs on stock turbos and I have some other friends with Z06's (660 rwhp c7z). I make over 700 but the others are probably more around 650

    No hellcat but we had an 800+ rwhp maro and a 760 rwhp Chevy SS. Great group for anyone in the houston area.

    I was just curious what car you had. Your thread title is confusing.

    You missed out last night...

    Me, a FBO e85 nitrous Hellcat, and a M6 with unknown mods were having fun.

    I was out looking for e85 and this Hellcat rolled up behind me at the pump and we were bs'ing for a little bit. Neither of us were out looking to play, just wanting to fill up. Great guy named Charles. We went our separate ways and I went cruising. After circling half the city, I decided to head home and was headed back when I see two cars come flying past me. I saw one was a Hellcat and decided what the heck, why not. I pulled up beside him and it was Charles! We decided to have some fun and let the M6 line up with us 3 deep.

    Me and the kitty were pretty evenly matched, until I would occasionally miss a shift (Stock shifter...yes, I know I need a MGW). As for the M6, you could here the turbos singing and the exhaust, but after the first 1-2 seconds, the Hellcat and I just left him by football field lengths.

    But, the M6 guy was a good sport and kept trying, so I dropped back and let him play with the kitty.

    After they had to slow down for upcoming traffic in front of them, a group of five bikes came flying by, so I figured I'd go play with them.

    I drop down and go around the kitty and the M6 to catch the bikes. I passed 3 of them like they were standing still and caught up to the 2 other lead bikes and flash my lights to let them know I was coming around. By the time I was passing them, 5th gear was maxed and I was in 6th. The 1 bike that could keep up was close to my rear quarter but slowly falling off.

    We both let up and he signalled he wanted a 50 roll and I obliged. He signalled and we took off. He got the jump while my turbos spooled, and as soon as they came into boost, my rear tires spun. The spin wasn't too bad and I've got the panhard adjusted well for the back end, so it stayed straight. When I got traction, he had about 20 feet on me, but I was reeling him in......until I went into 4th and couldn't get it into gear. At that point, I let up because I had already lost and the bike kept going. Good fun and I wasn't even looking to play.

    Like I said, Katy is where it's at.

    Wally, we have a few cars that would love to play. Problem is we are more of an early sat-sun crowd. Cars will range from 400-900hp, sry no hellcat though. Lmk

    So far I've been lucky enough to run a green one and a white one with a black hood (plate said 3.3sec).
    I agree Katy does have some nice rides

    Honestly, I don't take the car out much. I drive the s550 (bone stock) daily and my Suburban on the weekends.

    Yes, Katy on a Friday or Saturday night is a blast.

    I wish I got Charles' info. Really cool guy and would enjoy meeting up with him and his crew again.
