    Well after a long road the Swampmonster is finally completed.
    This 2009 Challenger SRT is very special. Its my first SRT. I ordered it in August of 2008. At that time the economy was in a tailspin. Credit and banks were tanking downward. Dodge was in the middle of a bankruptcy. The Challenger sat in Area 51 in Brampton for 3 months under 3 feet of snow. Dodge didn't have drivers to ship the units plus the platform was brand new with the 2008 models only limited to 6000 units. The 2008 SRT have ADM of 25-30K easy all day long. I found a dealer willing to sell to me at that time invoice which was 43K for a loaded 2009 Sliver SRT with sunroof.
    I started this journey 4 years ago with trying to get a full body, full interior spotless condition only 7000 miles on the clock full weight 4625 lbs 2009 Challenger SRT running 9's all day. I was dealing with a local shop which had never built a 9 second car before and to date still hasn't. It turned out to be a Disaster of a build. They Butchered my prize possession. So I made a major change. I pulled the Swampmonster out of the Dungeon in July 2014 and shipped it to the MAN !!! The Master himself Brent at DTP Racing. Brent went through the car front to back re building the entire car fixing all the redneck shady tree wiring. We first went to VMP Modern Hemi Shootout in September 2014 it ran 9.67 148 mph but the Southern Hot Rod War Viking couldn't handle the power and started slipping after 2 runs. Pulled that POS out and decided it was time for a real race transmission. I had M and M Racing Transmission build me a Badd Azz piece capable of handling the Steam. Well it sure did.
    September 2015 at VMP Modern Hemi Shootout the Swampmonster arrived.
    9.20's 150 mph like a bracket car all day.
    1.33 60'
    5.90 1/8 118 mph
    9.20 et 150 mph
    The mission is complete now. Its time for it to return to the Swamplands of Louisiana.
    Just a reminder before ANYONE gives a Shop a Build ask for References call the people ask questions get details. I made the mistake and it cost me 3 years and wasted $$$$.
    The Swampmonster will now meet his baby brother White Trash !!!!
