    Biggest hint in the dyno picture is the 3 gears. Clearly a face palm moment in my opinion. All the talk of torque multiplication is aligned with tire video releases so I'd venture to say the 815 may fit in there. The 757 is the real head scratcher, unless it is that limited on pump gas, that's the black key hp, or perhaps it references a standard hellcats power boost.

    1121 and 757 I'm not getting the gist of.

    I also felt like the 2600~ at 35 could be the stall speed on the TC but it seems mighty low for a drag car. And 35 being 35% more grip.

    Does anyone know what the auto hellcats have for a stock stall speed?

    The graph for the gears is BS. That is the shift pattern for the new ADR package in its drag settings... notice it only uses the three lower gears for drag racing in the quarter mile. Look at the numbers above in the same picture.... even though this picture was Durango SRT it clearly shows HELLCAT dyno net numbers, Demon dyno numbers and the Demon ADR with race gas numbers...

    Well after rechecking the graph, these are my thoughts.

    Pump gas:
    815hp
    757 lb/-ft

    Race gas: (based purely on graph)
    900hp
    825 lb/-ft

    I have no idea what the license plate or the vin# tells us. I need to think about them more.

    Jumping in here.... I am putting the HP number at just shy of 900

    Follow me.... 707 hp @ 6000 rpm with a 2.62 final drive 3rd gear pull (2.10 gear) =3404 wheel torque
    Demon 3.09 gear and 18% increase in torque from new converter for 36% increase in wheel torque

    3404*1.36 = 4631

    From perf page pic 6500 rpm 3rd gear and assuming 3rd gear same. = 883 hp or close to that, parasitic loses etc

    also... top speed of Demon is not 200 mph... closer to 170-175 mph

    thoughts?

    I thought about it/researched it a little more lol

    License plate:
    2576 probably means 2576cc supercharger. For the sake of comparison, the stock hellcat supercharger is 2380cc.
    35 probably means 35 inches of mercury (converts to 17psi). Hellcat runs at 11psi.
    Note: found this theory on autoblog

    Vin plate:
    001121...no idea. Production ends November 2021???

    Maybe the VIN# is the last vin. Meaning the production is limited to 1121? I don't know why on earth they would pick that as a number however so I'm probably wrong.

    So happy the Demon head isn't a decal. That looks like a true emblem. Nice scoop Batman!
