    "The new 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT® Demon is the most-powerful muscle car ever with 840 horsepower and 770 pounds-feet of torque from its supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® Demon V-8 engine."

    :wow

    Hot Rod Network did an article on it. Their PR material said the car was "banned" by NHRA by implying it is too fast as a production car, when in fact it is merely due to safety requirements when a car can do 1/4 sub 10, certain safety equipment has to be in place like a full cage.

    The car was ineligible for NHRA races due to lack of required safety equipment.

    Incorrect. The car is 100% race legal as verified by the nhra. A car isn't required to have safety equipment because of the potential to run a certain time, it is banned after it runs that time. The car is allowed until you actually put down a sub 10.00 pass.

    In the video the guys said that they are banned but I don't know the details and speculations

    This is still silly fast for a production car thats affordable by middle class. Insane really.

    Anybody know why they put skinnies on the front for the drag run/setup? Whats the advantage?
