The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon had its second within the solar because the king of the quarter-mile, however there is a new fighter on the scene. Regardless of being far much less highly effective, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette may give it a critical battle in a drag race – so long as the circumstances are proper.
On this case, there is a inventory Corvette going up towards a modded Demon. The tweaks to the Dodge embrace skinny wheels in entrance and sticky Mickey Thompson rubber on the rear. The catalytic converters are gone, and it feels like there’s some further exhaust work, too. The Examine Engine mild apparently is not on, so with the cat-less pipes, this hints at the potential of a tune, too.
The percentages actually appear stacked within the Dodge favor, however wait and see what occurs. Within the first race, the Corvette leaves it within the mud as a result of the Demon is outwardly so loud inside that the motive force cannot hear the ‘Vette’s horn honking.
Within the subsequent run, each autos get a correct begin. The Demon begins sturdy for the primary second, however then the ‘Vette drives previous. It seems the Dodge is perhaps gaining again a little bit of the gap close to the top however not sufficient.
The ultimate race is generally a repeat of the second. The Corvette drives away, and there is nothing the Demon can do to maintain up.
So how does the Corvette with 495 horsepower (369 kilowatts) beat a Challenger Demon with a minimum of 808 hp (603 kW), though in all probability extra with the mods? Traction seems to be the reply, within the ‘Vette proprietor’s opinion. These races happen on an un-prepped stretch of highway. Even with the Mickey Thompson tires which can be practically slicks, the Dodge does not appear able to placing its energy down as successfully because the Chevy on this floor.
