    They are the greatest. There were rows and rows of hellcats. Old shool hemi challenger cuda roadrunner charger. The newest technology in all the old bodies. Trucks, vans. GTX . There were even decent deals in the car coral.

    And of course. The DEMON

    2 different people have said 9.35@149mph happened that day at Gainesville. That They didn't gain 9mph necessarily, But more or less was certified to make up for -DA.
    Here's an article saying "don't think of the 9.65 factory time as the absolute limit for your Challenger, tim k quote "Just make sure you've got an NHRA-approved cage if you decide to go that route (plenty of which are available through the aftermarket). Because with genuine, non-DOT drag slicks and an experienced driver, the Challenger SRT Demon will undoubtedly run deep into the low nines."

    This should not surprise anyone. Both @MoparDanno and I have been telling people that the car is much faster in the right conditions and that there will be Demon’s in the 8’s much sooner than some people may expect.

    Yep,

    Patrick is out there wringing them out. He got a white widebody stick car for the drive portion, and I think he was aiming for the yellow Demon for the track bit. They also are doing SRT Durangos and possibly Trackhawk GC's all at the same time.

    This is perhaps the best ride and drive ever in the history of cars IMO..... 4 of the baddest vehicles on the planet, and you get to beat on... er, sample them to your hearts content.

    Yes, a white Demon would be on the top of my list... then probably F8 Green followed by a toss up of Destroyer Gray and Granite Crystal.

    After seeing destroyer gray in person it moved up a few notches. My favorite color of all time is B5 blue. But lately my vehicle purchases have been red so Octane red is hovering at the top.

    But man I love that yellow jacket
