When it gets a little warmer I'll tell you how fast I get it to. My goal is 9.65 since that's what they got. I realize they practiced 5500 passes to figure it out and they had optimum track conditions. It will be very difficult to launch/feather off the line for best et but we all need goals. I can tell you the other day it was 30 degrees and I had 32 psi in the tires for street driving. I eased the pedal down slowly to keep from letting the transmission kick down (if the trans kicks down the 8 speed goes to 6000 rpm/14 psi boost/800 hp). Before I got to the floor I was doing 100 and it started to spin the tires. The power is there. But it's gonna take a good man to get it off the line.

When Pritchett made the 9.65 pass the very next pass one of the high ups..at str.. made a 9.66 pass....so the 9.65 pass wasn't a fluke pass that no else can also do


Never saw a vid/comment or hint of a 9.30 pass, Anywhere. You stated No Proof, But Claim.

Personally, don't believe it ever happened. It took every trick in the book they could muster to get a 9.65. I'm sure that was backed up with a 9.66 right after as the track and DA conditions were the same.


My Point is, These cars are advertised as Turn Key, if everybody can put the drag strip package on from out of the trunk and run a Easy 9, or even a 9.65.

Not going to Happen, most will run 10.20,s to 10.40,s Some, will and may get into the 9,s as delivered from the factory.

It is one heck of a car, but its not going to run as the Marketing guys would have you think Turn Key. For the most part, I see disappointment over the web as to how these cars that Have been run down the track are performing, not Nearly up to par as they Thought they would...

Granted, Modified from stock, Even the Hellcats are running into the 8,s, the Demon will as well.


But I will back up, 10,20s or better from a Turn key Factory car, Waaay Impressive. up up


Just because was no proof dont mean it didnt happend. It was actually talked about on the hellcat forum BEFORE dodge released the time
Even told that was passes where it carried the wheels 15 foot on more then one pass
I dont know if it did or didnt....anything is possible
After people learn what the car wants. I think will be quite a few running 9s

Listen to the engine/shifts. Nothing like a Demon. A Demon has an 8 speed. It is shifting all the time.

From what I can tell, that's a drag pack car, not a Demon.

I agree, Drag Pack not Demon. I should have a two or three speed in it.

While I was surprised that Leah seemed to be the tallest of all the Top Fuel points leaders when they lined up on stage at the NHRA year end banquet, I bet she still weights a lot less than most but not all Demon owners. That makes the 9.65 in stock trim even a little harder to reach.
