Hellcat Challenger Sniffing 9s

by Patrick Rall on

We have seen a few 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcats blasting down the quarter mile, but today’s video shows what I believe to be the quickest of the Hellcat cars, nearly getting into the 9 second quarter mile range. This Challenger runs a stunning 10.03 at 140 miles per hour.

The owner swapped to a new lower pulley for extra boost pressure, added a free flowing cold air intake setup, methanol injection, a 50 shot of nitrous oxide, and an engine tune to bring those modifications together with the best outcome possible.

Next, to put that power to the ground safely, a stronger driveshaft has replaced the stock unit, and the factory 20 Hellcat wheels have been removed in favor of a set of 17 inch wheels wrapped in 28 inch drag racing slicks. So a pulley, CAI, meth injection, nitrous, a tune, driveshaft, and slicks allowed this Challenger to run a 10.03 at 140 miles per hour.

This run was made in the heat over the past two weeks, so in some cooler temperatures, this 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat will almost certainly make it into the 9 second club, and it looks like he will do this with the stock transmission, the stock rear end, and the vast majority of the stock engine components.

This Challenger will likely be the first of the Hellcat cars in the 9s, but in seeing how little this guy has done to his modern Mopar muscle car, we are likely to see more of the Hellcat Challengers in the 9s as we get into the cooler autumn air.
