YouTube user bigtruckseriesreview is frustrated with the ass-whoppings that Dodge SRT Hellcat drivers have experienced at the race track.

To put an end to this, he's listed 7 rules for Hellcat owners that he says will help the Hellcat avoid embarrassment at the track:

  • Only use the red key
  • Use the shift-light system
  • You need wider rear tires
  • Do not race anything with AWD
  • Do not race anything with retracting spoilers
  • Do not race electric vehicles
  • Do not race any jet aircraft
At least two rules were broken in that race against the Tesla Model S P85D.

It's a known fact that the RWD Hellcat is challenging to pilot to its potential, whereas the P85D is simply a mash-the-pedal-to-go racer.

Here we present our 7 rules for racing your Tesla Model S P85D:

  • Realize there's no key required.  While your opponent searches for this thing called a "key," give him/her a smirk.
  • Race anything that requires shifting
  • Stickier track tires aren't really necessary
  • Race anything with RWD
  • If it plugs in & has a retracting spoiler (examples - Porsche 918 Spyder, McLaren P1), then you might want to consider sitting it out
  • Race ICE vehicles and electrics, but watch out for anything electric on two wheels
  • Go ahead, race a jet aircraft.  Then send the video our way.  We'd love to see it, regardless of the result.
Basically, if you into racing your P85D, then go for it. Chances of losing are slim.  Just be on the lookout for those million dollar plug-ins (Porsche & McLaren) and think twice before challenging an electric two-wheeler.

Or maybe 7 rules really boil down to just 1..."stamp on the accelerator" - see video below
