    Jon Sipple's newest run of 10.62 shattered his old record (10.86 ) for the quickest manual transmission Hellcat Challenger in the world. It doesn't look like thats going to be the end of it either. His Challenger's clutch was slipping at wide open throttle with the nitrous, so he's going to hit up Modern Muscle Extreme for a heavy duty replacement clutch that will better handle the copious amounts of H Pee's.

    Jon will soon be displaying sonic booms at local tracks sometime soon. Good luck brother.

    All right!!
    whats interesting is that it was a tune and nitrous, I thought for sure it would be deep rear gears drag slicks and a custom trans with a better drag racing ratio spread that would take the manual to mid tens.

    I wish there was in the car shifter footage of his runs. I'd like to see some close up video of the clutch work too.

    Did you post information about your clutch? Please send me the link. I am interested in that as a future upgrade.
