At the Street Car Takeover in Atlanta, Dodge Challenger Hellcats had blood lust and were out to fight the world. Corvettes, Mustangs, Fox Bodies, you name it, they raced. Whatever Atlanta threw at these Hellcats they wanted a piece of it. They lost some races but others they left their opponents in the dust.
The first match up was between a sweet red Dodge Challenger Hellcat on drag tires against a Corvette C6 Z06 that was purging nitrous. The race was close but the rodded Hellcat won by a nose and had an ET of 11.43 @ 131.41 MPH. The second Hellcat was another red machine which was paired up against a wicked fast Pontiac G8 that beat the Hellcat, but only be a few 10ths of a second.
A green Hellcat then took on a standard Challenger and ran a 10 second ET compared to the standard Challenger’s 14. The 2nd red Hellcat then took on a C5 Corvette with nitrous and drag radials where it lost to the 10 second Vette by almost a second. The Last match up saw the green Hellcat take on a Fox Body Mustang on drag radials, both cars ran in the mid 10s but the Stang came out on top.
Even though it lost a few of the races it’s always fun to watch Dodge Challenger Hellcat drag racing. These cars might be the greatest factory musclecars to roll of the assembly line. Not only are they fast stock but when they are modified they truly live up to their name.
