SpeedFactory Challenger in a Supercharged Dodge Challenger SRT8 Grudge Match Drag Race
Mopars at the Strip is an annual MOPAR car show and Drag Race event held at Las Vegas Motor Speedway every year. In 2009 SpeedFactory attended and displayed our 600HP supercharged SpeedFactory Challenger - the first modern Challenger to be supercharged. Next door to us was a supercharged Challenger built by CDC/Group 2. The inevitable occurred - and Rob Wolf, editor of Mopar Collector's Guide, did a "Pinks" style start for the grudge match on the 1/4 mile drag strip. SpeedFactory driver Eddie Rosa emerged victorious with a 1/4 time of 12.374 seconds at 112.66 mph, beating the other car by 4/10 of a second.
The SpeedFactory Challenger has the Stage 3 Supercharger package, featuring a Vortech Supercharger at 5.5 lbs Boost, Hotchkis handling package, Magnaflow catback Exhaust, and SpeedFactory Signature package. Installed options include Richmond 3.55 gears and Boze Tach style forged wheels. Everything else on the car is stock 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8. As shown in the video, the Challenger was on street tires. On drags, the SpeedFactory Challenger runs in the 11s.

Supercharged 572 Hemi Challenger SRT8 - Craven Performance
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
This has to be the meanest modern Challenger that I've seen yet. This
wicked machine is being built by Craven Performance in St. Peters,
Missouri. They brought it out to Mega Mopar weekend at Gateway Motorsports
Park today, so I decided to take a closer look. This beast is powered by a
fuel-injected, 10-71 Supercharged, 572 Hemi, that is expected to make in
excess of 1200 horsepower on the Dyno. They just fired this car
up for the first time a couple of days ago, so it hasn't seen any Dyno time yet. I'll definitely
keep you posted on what happens next with this car. I hope you find it
interesting....thanks for watching!
