From what I heard first come first serve.
Thx for the info.
So, the 5.7l guys can have a Mopar PCM and now Demon, what about a PCM for 6.4l guys?
Mebbe I missed it.
...but in the Widebody Hellcat thread, oh2o said that the WBHC was going to have a full competition suspension, and electric power steering. My concern is about the electric power steering and Demon. Is Demon going to get E-Power steering? If so, how much parasitic loss does that add back into the useable power column for Demon?
Inquiring minds want to know.
How can I properly bench race a Demon without knowing these important details? ***He said with tongue placed firmly in cheek.
You must really want the 500 horsepower out of the 6.4L as much as I wanted my 400 horsepower out of Scat Pack Stage 1 kit for my 5.7L. Word of the wise my Scat Pack Stage 1 kit cost 4/5 of what the Demon kit cost with only gaining 25 or so horsepower!
Yes, Demon does. Not much. Steering will have multiple levels of steering settings in the car. There is a specific steering setting for Drag Racing!
Thanks Bob. I know it's not much, but when you are building the worlds most bad [I should have my mouth washed out with soap for using such terms] factory dragster, you go all the way with it.
The Demon has all the Drag Racers out there covered...
I think people need to look past the horsepower details alone of the car and how much racing technology each Demon (crate or no crate) get.
Believe me, all of the advance stuff you all have put out is not wasted on me. There is so much to this car. It is about so much more than just power adders. (Something which non-drag racers pointing to the Hennessy Exorcist simply don't understand. There is no comparison.)
I've seen "Door ajar" but do not recall a "Hood ajar" option....... so the engineers are trying to avoid a drag-racer leaving the hood open...... seriously, THAT'S thinking of everything! If anyone thinks this is a joke, I challenge you to see how many times something as simple as shutting the hood completely is when your mind is on drag racing...... I've not did it..... yet..... but come close and witness the results from friend who forgot. Nice option. I'd love to see a total list of all the things that went into this car.....
Hey us 6.2 guys had to go aftermarket too! lol. Now Mopar wants to dio this for Demon, could mean good news somewhere for the 6.4
I had thought it was confirmed the WB Hellcats will have line lock also?
On Demon, yes, it will have line lock and Trans brake. The Widebody Hellcat is right now unconfirmed for line lock, as it is going to be a road race car, not a dragster.
Maybe I missed it, but have they said if the driveshaft is going to be one or two piece?
I know 392HEMI is underrated, and it doesn't make sense installing a factory CAI and louder exhaust but the horsepower rating is only 10hp higher than the 2012 Charger SRT that I had..
I know Dodge were able to pull a lot more than 500hp out of the 392, but I don't know how they did it or if it is any different than the Scat Pack or TA/Daytona...
The Hellcat WB isn't going to be a "road race car" (IE Z/28, 1LE), so much as it's going to just be more capable than the non WB Hellcat.
Careful, so far we do know that its getting a different suspension that appears to be more handling focused.
The regular Hellcat can pull 0.9-0.92g..
Add wider tires on four corners with lighter wheels plus a competition suspension setup, and you should see a noticeable improvement...
Maybe you should face teh facts? Everything we know on it so far points to it being a better handling car. As it sits now the hellcat is only a couple seconds slower depending on the track
