Dodge Challenger SRT8 vs. The World – Street Hits Part 2

June 8th, 2022

Not a Hellcat, not a Redeye, not even a Demon, this Dodge Challenger SRT8 owner ain’t letting it get him down. Tonight, he’s riding out loud and proud to do some roll racing on the interstate (of Mexico). Has this naturally aspirated (N/A) HEMI bit off more than he can chew? We are about to find out.

The Dodge Challenger SRT8 is often called a poor man’s Hellcat. Under the hood is a N/A 6.4-liter HEMI engine capable of producing 470hp and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. This rear-wheel drive Mopar is a heavy load at 4,170-pounds but this guy has cast aside 400-pounds of excess baggage. He’s also deleted the mufflers and catalytic converters. That make it mighty loud. Climb in and let’s hit the highway.

Our initial opponent for this evening is a Lexus RCF with unknown mods. These two cars come off the jump neck-and-neck. It remains close until the Lexus finally pulls away for a close victory.

Next up is a tuned Honda Civic with a full accoutrement of bolt-ons. Looks like the big Dodge sucked him up one tailpipe and puked him out the other. No contest. Challenger FTW!

A souped-up Corvette Z06 is up next, and the action keeps getting hotter from there.
