Camaro vs Hellcat

Decided to drive the beast to work this morning and left my house the usual time of about 4 am. Cruising in 5th gear just under 4k rpm on a long straightaway with light traffic (Yes, I'm under 100, but not much).

Suddenly I see lights coming up quickly in my rear view and as it gets closer, I notice it's a Challenger. So I speed up to match its pace. He seemed to be a rather reckless driver (weaving across 4 lanes of traffic around cars) , so I back off and let him go.

A few miles ahead, he takes my exit. Hmmm, interesting, I say to myself. I pull up at the traffic light and I see a purple wrapped car with bronze rims and tinted windows. I roll down mine and give the nod.

The driver looks over, then rolls down the passenger window. Watcha got, I ask? The confident reply, I've got a Hellcat with a chip. It's a Hellcat! I looked at the hood to confirm, then replied, sounds good. The passenger chimes in, yours sounds good too. What is it? I shrug and say I'm running 892 at the motor and 775 at the rear wheels. No response.

I poke a little more. What do you think? He says again, I have a Hellcat, then power brakes for a slight tire spin. I raised my eyebrows and say, that's great, but your tires spin too easily. Can you hook it up to the ground? Mine hooks up.

The light is still red, but it's about to turn green. He rolls up his windows. I leave mine down.

I'm not sure what he's thinking, but I reach down and turn off traction control, just in case. Suddenly, he power brakes again for a little tire chirp, then runs the red light, turns left and disappears into the night. Revving his motor on the way out.

That was fun, I thought to myself. He probably made a good decision.

Cool story, but while we're here, let's learn something. What is 892 front and 775 rear?

I believe he’s saying he makes 892 hp to the crank and puts down 775 to the rear wheels

I ran a Demon at XRP in Dallas back in December. He had a cam, CAI, headers, e85, pulleys, tune and 315/50x17 MT ET R tires. I had basically the same. He ran 6.33, I ran 6.29. Good race.

I liked how the driver could only say one thing. Maybe thats all he knew how to say?

The Hell Cat driver clearly did not know what he really had under the hood.

It says right in the post...892 at the motor and 775 to the wheels.

Thanks for the posts guys. She’s a lot of fun when I take her out. I believe a lot of folks think she’s just another loud POS red Camaro with red wheels. Truth is she’s straight up nasty.

I recently switched out my rear tire setup from winter OEM ZL1 rims with MT Street SS to summer 18” reps with MT Street R (see sig pic). She hooks like a mug and will reach up and slap yo mama. LOL!

A lot of those guys have trouble getting past the mid 11s. Taylor, what kind of 1/4 times do you get, low 10s? It would take a Demon or a fairly well modded Hellcat to take you on, I wager.

I haven't seen a Demon around my neck of the Dallas burbs, but that would be interesting. I am fairly confident I have a 10 second car, but haven't proven it on a track. Maybe one day...
