N/A Dodge Challenger 426 HEMI vs. Charger Hellcat and Challenger Scat Pack – Drag Racing

November 13th, 2020

This prime example of Mopar racing heritage comes with tons of personal history and a pretty blonde pilot. She campaigns this car in memory or her late mother and she is having fun doing it without the benefit of power adders. She’s taking on the supercharger, nitrous and turbo cars and giving them all they can handle. Let’s take a closer look and see what makes this Challenger unique in today’s environment of racing with forced air induction.

The Dodge Challenger is powered by a 6.1-liter SRT engine with a 426 HEMI Stroker Kit. It has an Arrington camshaft and a set of aftermarket aluminum cylinder heads. Despite not using a power adder, this Mopar makes great power and runs consistent low to mid tens in the quarter-mile.

In the first contest, the 426 N/A Challenger takes on a stock Charger Hellcat. She gets the holeshot and puts a whooping on the Hellcat with the quickness – posting a 10.63-second pass at 131 mph. Not too shabby.

In the next race, two N/A cars lineup. The white Challenger is equipped with the SRT Scat Pack. Both Challengers lurch forward at the light, but the Scat Pack car seems to lose traction and backs way out of the throttle. The 426 N/A car goes on to post a 10.3-second pass @ 132 mph and get the win.
