    `Only a week ago we saw what may just be one of the quickest 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcats around, with the car—and its female owner—completing the quarter mile in a time of 10.67 seconds. We now have video of a 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat that’s even quicker—a lot quicker.

    In this video from YouTube user Ross Kirkendoll, a Challenger SRT Hellcat completes a pass in just 10.03 seconds at 140 mph. That’s an incredible time considering the stock version complete with 707 horsepower needs 10.8 seconds to achieve the same feat when equipped with drag radials (11.2 seconds with ordinary road tires)

    That engine is strong enough to take a LOT more power than what's offered by the factory. IDK what mods were done on that particular vehicle, but I have to think some weight saving measures were done, along with extra power to get that ET. Now, if you could only get one! Dodge had to cancel 900 orders for 2015 and promised to double production for next year. I plan on being on the list, providing I get one at MSRP. There are a few dealers out there that don't jack up the price. The Hellcat is one sweet ride!

    In the good olde days [:supergrin:] I would have been happy enough with an 11 second street car, and it would have taken plenty of modifications to achieve that with a late '60's - early 70's factory ride. Now days, and if I remember correctly, the stock factory original Hellcat is capable of that. But, I still want that without all the computer bull****.

    Yeah, we are in the new golden age of muscle cars. It's mind blowing the amount of horsepower that is coming out of the factory nowadays. That Hellcat is beastly, I wonder what mods were done to it. I'm sure they will dipping into the 9's very soon. They do need some serious weight reduction, those cars are too heavy.

    How about a 9 second Z06 with just some bolt-ons, porting of the supercharger, tuning, and drag radials:

Jeremys first pass he ran 140mph shutting down at 1100ft.

    List of Mods-
    - Fasterproms custom tune by Jeremy Formato
    - Fasterproms custom 2.31 pulley
    - Fasterproms Ported Supercharger
    - Modified air box, and air duct with modified AFE CAI
    - Fasterproms Thermal reduction plates That reduce blower heat soak
    - Fasterproms Flex fuel kit- This is a flex fuel sensor that we make to allow us to run on blended e85/pump gas
    - Fasterproms 1.5Gal Expansion tank tank for greater supercharge coolant capacity
    - ARH 1.875 headers
    - Hoosier 315/30/18 dr's

    I have to guess that there were some of the older cars I saw at the Don Garlits museum that were 9 second cars. But they were not exactly stock.

    Single car pass, probably just concentrating on best ET so reaction time is moot.

    No launch control on that pass according to the comments. It did say he disconnected the rear sway bar to allow it to squat like that. Reaction time is moot, he was just going for a fast pass.

    I'll never understand drag-racing.

    How utterly boring.

    Too true......too true.

    Sadly, I just read something about 2 buddies going to a track-day, one in a 2013 GT500, and the other in a 2015 GT Performance Pack.

    And the 2015 (IRS) was waaaay better around the road course than the GT500.

    So, I guess the IRS does actually work well. I was hoping to not be tempted into another new Mustang.
