Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Grudge races Chevrolet Camaro SS, deeply regrets it
Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Charger / Challenger. This pony / muscle car trio has withstood all trials and tribulations over the decades and still manages to create a lot of animosities among fans.
Fortunately, some homeowners choose the right place to vent the steam. Or rather dismiss their adversary in their relentless desire to assert fiery supremacy. This is surely the right way to settle a grudge. Not in the street, but on the drag strip.
The videographer behind the Drag racing and car stuff The chain takes a liking to the one-on-one, one-on-one match events a quarter mile from this intimate venue. So after seeing a few classic battles between America and Import for the first time in the form of C7 Corvette / Nissan GT-R and Challenger / GT-R meetups, now is the time to keep it in the family of ponies.
Well, actually, we’re dealing with their muscle car upgrades here, as the latest grudge skirmish sees the Dodge Challenger in the SRT Hellcat form and the Chevrolet Camaro in a fiery SS derivation. We also suspect that it wasn’t just pure stock fight, because as one fan remarked “it’s not just an SS. ”
Otherwise, the 707- or 717-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat would have no problem wrestling around the 455-horsepower Chevy Camaro SS, even though both have a powerful 6.2-liter V8 engine under the hood. But that’s the beauty of quarter-mile drag racing – you should always expect the unexpected and never start a race with preconceived ideas.
As such, although initially the mighty Mopar compressor seemed to have the upper hand and a slight advantage when it passed the videographer’s location, it turns out that it was just an impression, or maybe an illusion caused by POV.
In the end, to the obvious enthusiasm of the audience, all bets were off and as both rides showed that they shouldn’t be taken lightly, the lights signaled that victory ultimately belonged to the Crimson Camaro ” it’s not just an SS! ”
