Yeah, sorry. It sold yesterday.... they do have a 2016 new white charger hellcat they will sell at an awesome discount i know though. I'm not sure if they are getting another Demon. I don't think so, but ...just order a widebody challenger hellcat there at invoice, pulley, tune, drag radials and you have the same thing for 30k less..... then keep the 30k in the bank for retirement. They both going to depreciate like a rock anyway. It is a Dodge after all... narrow body hellcat taking a beating now.

Stripes are easy to take off if you don't want them down the road.

Love the octane red without stripes. Ask the dealer to remove them if you don't like them.

A few pics I took at the media introduction (not the highest quality versions):

Monochrome is fastest, though.







And one yellow for the hell of it:

That makes sense, it's "supposed" to make 840hp when the race gas and the "race mode" put into the PCM.

Power is about right. It is dynoing on drag radials, which rob on average 30-50rwhp. They also measured in STD vs SAE. So it looks to be in the range it should be.

If the grip is there, flashing the converter is faster.

It isn't the drag radial that is the issue. When guy that run slicks they will dyno on a drag radial. It has to do with rolling resistance. It is when people don't adjust tire pressure. Low air pressures increase rolling resistance and that can lead to low readings.

True story, I was helping a buddy with his NMRA drag radial car. We made some small changes after his last race and wanted to do some tuning. After a run it was off on power. Second run was the same. I noticed the tires looked low. They were from the last race. Aired them up and we picked up the power we were off. We are not talking 20-30 hp. It was closer to 100.

Think of pushing a car on flat tires. Way harder to push versus when it has proper air pressure. Same thing with the driveline turning the low pressure tires.

The dyno drum surface can tear up any tire. Especially if they spin on the drums. No doubt.

Where is the video of you doing a burn out in it with you hanging out the window waving the signed paperwork around?




And that is a sharp color on that car.
