2010 Dodge Challenger 1320 Street Pak Drag Race Exclusive
HOTROD Magazine Editor Rob Kinnan is the first to make a drag pass in the 2010 Dodge Challenger 1320 Street Pak concept car. Rob pounds the car through several runs to find out what kind of numbers it puts up. This video is a must watch for muscle car fans...there's lots of tire smokin' goodness, a built 426 all aluminum HEMI cranking out 556 horsepower, open Exhaust and it's all wrapped in new Challenger sheet metal painted in semi-flat black and yellow.
Hangin' With Top Gear's Rutledge Wood at HOT ROD Power Tour 2014
Rutledge Wood from American Top Gear has been a big fan of HOT ROD, Power
Tour, and Roadkill, so he's had his 1949 Chevy Kurbmaster van at the last
few Tours. Here, at the 20th Power Tour in 2014, HOT ROD's Elana Scherr and
David Freiburger hit the road with Rut and the van. The aluminum-bodied
stepvan is on a moden Chevy truck chassis and is powered by a 6.2L crate
engine and 4L85E trans from Chevrolet Performance.
Tina Pierce of Street Outlaws on Day 1 of HOT ROD Drag Week 2014
Tina Pierce, who appeared on the Street Outlaws TV show as "the fastest
chick in Oklahoma" is seen here being interviewed by Mike Finnegan on the
first day of HOT ROD Drag Week 2014 at Tulsa Raceway Park. Tina's S10,
rebuilt after a wreck on the show, carries a 427ci turbo LSX engine that had a best run of 8.13 at
169 mph during Drag Week—and that's after driving it 1,000-plus miles on
the street. She finished fifth in the Unlimited class in her first showing
at Drag Week, which is presented by Gear Vendors and co-sponsored by Pep
Boys Speed Shops.
Hot Rod Corvette Hack - The Long Version
This is the video version of the Corvette Hack story that appeared in the
Nov. '10 issue of Hot Rod magazine. You'll see the Hot Rod staff shred an
'85 Corvette, cutting off parts until it was nearly a bare frame. The
point? To see how much the car's performance improved as it dropped weight
(into the Dumpster).

134112 / 2009 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/c4nlzdc
Number 76 of just 100 Challenger Drag Paks built for the 2009 model year,
this stripped down ready-to-build car hearkens back to the days of
factory-backed Super Stock racing. Regardless if you're interested in
preserving rare and exclusive Mopar metal or building your own Hemi-powered
racer, this 2009 Challenger Drag Pak offers the perfect starting point.
Dressed in a coat of Stone White, all the car's familiar lines are in place
and the untouched factory body remains laser straight. It's a regular
shell, not some exotic composite body, and the doors open and shut like any
other car. Only the lift-off hood with its impressive hood scoop hints
there is anything unique going on.
Lift the lightweight hood off of this Challenger and a familiar sight comes
into view -- a 6.1L Hemi. . Naturally, this isn't quite a production
engine. Inside the cast iron block, a forged steel crankshaft works with
forged steel rods, forged 12:1 pistons, and a hydraulic roller cam to build
a rock solid foundation. At the top, aluminum heads frame a high ram EFI
intake manifold with a four-barrel throttle body. Chrysler literature
included in the sale lists the engine at 385hp but, with this type of car,
that number is little more than a baseline.
Take a look under the Challenger and you'll find an equally blank canvas
waiting to be filled in. Underneath the engine, a specially modified
K-member features a drop-out cross member for added accessibility. A manual
rack and pinion steering setup offers control over the front wheels while
lightweight race-only front brake provide the stopping power. Behind the
engine, a T56 six-speed manual has been bolted up with the bright yellow
shipping support still in place beneath. From the transmission back, the
drivetrain becomes a choose-your-own-adventure scenario.
Inside, the car offers a stripped down interior. The front and rear glass
is glued into place for easy removal when it's time to put the roll cage
in. At the side, polycarbonate pieces replace OEM glass. A single piece of
carpet covers the front half of the floor beneath lightweight Viper seats.
The stock dash is in place but features little more than a few gauges and a
Dodge-branded switch panel. Behind the seats, a fully stripped trunk is
covered by a cable-operated trunk release.
Other weight saving measures include the deletion of the HVAC system,
windshield wiper assembly, airbags, rear seats, power steering system, Exhaust system, cross-car and side impact
beams, rear bumper beam and rear deck lid spoiler. As a product of the Drag
Program, the car also lacks a VIN so it can never be registered as a road
This is not a street (or even streetable) car. If you're not planning on
going racing or preserving it as-is, we've got some great alternatives that
will get you on the road a whole lot sooner. If you're ready to dominate
the drag strip like the legends of yesteryear, it's hard to imagine a
better starting point. Call, click or visit http://rkmotorscharlotte.com

2011 Mopar Challenger V10 Drag Pak
In 2009 and 2010, Dodge released a special edition Challenger called the
Drag Pak. Both editions sold out fast so the Mopar boys are building
another one for 2011. If the '09 and '10 models went quick, this one is
going to be gone before you're done reading this paragraph.
Instead of sticking with the 6.1-liter Hemi V8 used last year, the 2011
Mopar Challenger Drag Pak crams a 512-cubic inch, 8.4-liter V10 engine and
mates it to a two-speed automatic transmission. If those engine numbers
sound familiar, and they should, it's because that's the same unit used in
the Dodge Viper -- which produces 600 horsepower and 560
pound-feet of torque.
Go back and re-read that last line -- Viper-V10 powered. Drag-race ready.
Besides the massive mill, this Mopar Challenger Drag Pak also features
everything you need to start your professional drag racing career. Get your
reading glasses out because there's a long list of features, some of which
we've highlighted below (the rest can be seen after the jump):
512 cid V-10 engine
2-speed automatic transmission with shift assembly and built-in roll
Special body-in-white modified for drag racing
Complete fuel cell assembly
Polycarbonate door windows
Lightweight drag-race only front brake assembly
Race-style wheels and tires
Only 70 units will be produced and they'll each have a starting MSRP of
$85,512. There are also three available optional packages for the car. The
Competition Package costs $7,950 and adds an eight-point roll cage,
six-point safety harness and a mesh window net. The Mopar Body Logo Wrap
will cost you $950. Finally, there is a range of available body colors if
you don't like the Bright White paint scheme, and they run $6,800.
The 2011 Mopar Challenger V10 Drag Pak will make its debut at the upcoming
2010 SEMA Show in early November. Since there are only going to be 70 made,
that may be the last time you see one unless you run down to your local
Dodge dealer and fill out an application to own one.
