    Watch, as the 2015 Dodge Hellcat SRT drag-races three very different cars and drivers. Our Hellcat enters the video at 2:50, the race section starts around 5:48. Enjoy!

    (From MotorTrend)
    We've reached the final day of 2014 SEMA Week brought to you by 76, and only we would dare to bring this ridiculous mix of vehicles together for a grudge race on an unprepped airport runway. Fred Williams, Jessi Lang, Mike Sabounchi and Mike Finnegan begged and bribed SEMA Show exhibitors to loan them vehicles for a ¼ mile drag race and, though Finnegan and Sabounchi failed, the group still managed to acquire a Jeep riding on tank treads, a fresh-off-the-floor 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat, the infamous Hemi-powered ’55 Chevy Bel Air from Roadkill, and a turbocharged 2013 Chevy Sonic to do battle.

    The racers are as different as the cars. Finnegan lives in the world of hot rods, Lang regularly pilots the best the OEM carmakers have to offer, Williams spends all of his time in the dirt, and Sabounchi hops up every compact car on the planet. Who will come out on top? Watch and find out!

    I think that she just didn't know how to drive it. But then again, they never said what mods were done to it outside of a big block hemi..

    it seemed to me she got a terrible launch in the Hellcat, and perhaps the wise owner of the vehicle had programmed in low shift points too! I've gotta feeling with the right driver, and red key fob and settings used wisely, the race would have a different outcome.

    I don't know. That gasser was stripped out, roll cage, drag suspension with a huge engine. It's soul purpose is to haul ass in a straight line.

    And you have to remember that she said she had never driven the Hellcat before. So with a little practice at getting a better launch the outcome may have been different.

    Are you saying with the proper driver that Hellcat would've beat the Gasser?
    Gasser specs:
    The engine is a 530ci Hemi based on a Mopar Performance crate engine. With a Comp solid roller cam, 10.5:1 compression, homemade 2-1/4-inch headers from a Hedman kit, and Hilborn stack injection powered by a FAST XFI controller and Aeromotive fuel system, it makes 700 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque. We were stunned to see 17 mpg a few times on the cross-country trip, especially with absurd 5.43 gears in the Ford 9-inch rear axle. The key to it all is the Tremec T56 Magnum six-speed manual double-overdrive trans installed with a conversion kit from American Powertrain. The car uses a Speedwires harness, charging and starting by Powermaster, and a Braille lightweight battery in the trunk.
