104 mph in the 1/8 is a long ways off from 9 sec 1/4 mile potential. Does look like the 60' was pretty slippery though.

The book says it will accelerate better using the transbrake.

He also said some functions won't activate until it reaches so many miles.

Very impressive for a car with under 1000 miles and he never raced it before.

I'm glad it's at the track instead of in some climate controlled room never to see the light of day........ Like I'm sure will happen with many of them.

The local dealer got one in, and supposedly the new owner plans to just put it away....... What a total waste. down

He was saying on other forum. Was having trouble gettingbtrans brake to work so he foot braked it. Stock ecm..91 pump gas. No torque reserve wich lets it have all 14 pounds boost in just 6 feet. So yeah the car will deff be faster after he gets the bugs lined out

Yep, and its already known that most people that buy these cars wont be getting them into the 9.8,s Most will run 10.20,s and 10.40,s The car Does indeed have the potential to run in the 9,s as already proven. But those were achieved with test after test in the most perfect conditions with a heavily sprayed down track.

Its kind of like back in the day when the V Maxes came out and were supposed to be a true 10. second street bike. With 90# Gleason on it with lots of experience he did run some 10.9,s.

But the rest of us common street riders could only muster 11.20,s to 11.60,s

This Hellcat demon is not truly a Turn Key 9.78 second ride, that Everybody can just jump in and run the Number. But, even with that said, it still is a Truly impressive car. up

Not really fair to say when the car wasn't able to use a few of the things that the car your comparing to did have (trans brake and full 14 pounds boost in 6 foot)
Wait till the issues are lined out and car runs as it should

It would be fair to say, that You no doubt will be one of the Demon owners to get there cars into the 9,s with your skills. Probably may need after market slicks to do it though.

The car that mopar ran 9.78,s with the track was sprayed almost the whole length. You wont find that at most normal tracks.

It wont need the whole track sprayed but running right after a huge event will help, along with a great DA. I am sure you'll see some 9-sec passes out of them here soon enough.

It's not that far off. These things pull a lot better than an N/A car in the big half. Pretty sure with some C14, the top tune and the stock tires will get you thrown out of about anywhere.

Like said above this was with the pump gas ECU so it wasn't the 840HP setup. If anyone is going to get one of these things in the 9s I am sure Ron is a good candidate. He posted some great detail on the Facebook page he made for the car.

You don't use C14 in a Demon. It has lead in it.
