General Mayhem: 707HP Hellcat Engine in a 1968 Charger! Roadkill Ep. 43

See the very first running, driving vintage muscle car powered by a 707-horsepower, supercharged, 6.2L Hemi engine from a 2015 Dodge SRT Charger Hellcat! The car is the General Mayhem, Roadkill’s 1968 Dodge Charger. In this episode, the Hellcat-powered General Mayhem is built and drag-race tested in preparation for a cutthroat drag race with a reality TV show at the first-ever Roadkill Nights event, where a makeshift drag strip was created in the parking lot of the abandoned Silverdome football stadium in Pontiac, Michigan. More than 10,000 people showed up to watch! And there’s a surprise, as the Mayhem’s younger brother is revealed!

Dirt Cheap Rat Rod! 1968 Charger Buildup and Thrash - Roadkill Ep. 23
Freiburger and Finnegan think this is the best episode so far! It's the longest, too. This show has it all: a Mad-Max-vibe 1968 Dodge Charger built with motorhome parts, sideways Dukes-style action, lots of low-buck wrenching, hilarious snafus, and cameo appearances by the Macho Grande from episode 8, the '66 Buick Special convertible from a pre-Roadkill episode, the ramp truck from episode 20, and the Fury from episode 22. Enjoy the last Roadkill of 2013!

Thrashing Roadkill Project Cars! - Roadkill Ep. 47
In this episode you’ll see a huge road trip that includes Freiburger-versus-Finnegan showdowns with crazy burnouts in the General Mayhem and General Maintenance; drag racing with the Blasphemi, General Mayhem, Draguar, and Vette Kart; and road-racing in the Vette Kart and General Maintenance. It’s all part of Roadkill Takes America, presented by Dodge, an event that was held in August of 2015. Roadkill fans were encouraged to follow along as hosts Mike Finnegan and David Freiburger road-tripped from Detroit to Ft. Worth (Texas) making stops at Beech Bend Raceway Park, Holley Performance, Comp Cams, Hallet Motor Racing Circuit, Tulsa Raceway, Hajek Motorsports Museum, Painless Performance, and finally Coyote Drive-In where episodes of Roadkill were shown on the big screen. Wanna know the best parts of this episode in our opinion? The massive burnout in the Comp Cams parking lot, the shriek of the Blasphemi’s blown Hemi at the drag strip, and the sound of the Hellcat on the road course. The worst part? Our driving skills on a damp road course. Don’t miss it. Roadkill thanks Dodge for a full season as our presenting sponsor, and welcomes all our official product sponsors: Optima Batteries, Eastwood Co., Dickies, Lincoln Tech, and Jeg’s!

Stubby Bob Fails, El Camino Wins, and Blasphemi Flops - Roadkill Ep. 44
It’s a project-car mishmash this time on Roadkill, powered by Dodge. It starts out Roadkill enough, with Finnegan surprising Freiburger with a ’50 Ford 2-ton truck that the guys thrash to shorten up into a bobber rat rod. Somewhere along the way the truck gets named Stubby, then Bob, and then it really doesn’t matter because the junk doesn’t get done in time to race from Atlanta to Wisconsin for the Car Craft Summer Nationals show. But the guys have to be there anyway. Watch as they thrash to fix the Hemi-powered Blasphemi ’55 Chevy Gasser, then cannonball to Wisconsin in Roadkill’s ’69 El Camino only to show up late. But there’s Roadkill fun anyway, with action on the autocross and the drag strip. It’s kind of a big mess, but a lot of fun as usual. Because Roadkill.

Farm-Find Rescue! Plymouth Duster Big-Block Swap - Roadkill Ep. 40
On this episode we present a new Roadkill project car: the Crop Duster! It’s a 1970 Plymouth Duster that Freiburger forgot that he owned—a result of multiple trades with a buddy, and at least 5 years of neglect in the dirt of a grape farm. Once he was reminded of the car, and with a 440 Mopar big-block sitting on the shop floor (salvaged from the General Mayhem ’68 Charger), it was evident what needed to happen. Freiburger and Finnegan headed up to the farm run by Steve Dulcich, editor of Engine Masters magazine, to drag the Duster out of its moss-covered indignity and attempted to get the 440 in the car and running, driving, and doing smoky burnouts within five days. Along the way, the trio did engine upgrades, butchered some headers, built a homemade driveshaft, cobbled together a used Exhaust system, did some halfhearted bodywork, and executed other mechanical feats the likes of which you’ve come to expect from Roadkill. Then it was off to the chassis Dyno and the drag strip. Hate to break it to you, but the fail in this episode is minimal!
