Let's take the slab of GM involved in the piece of 1,320 feet sprinting shown here, for instance. From what we can see in the clip, this Camaro features modest mods, such as drag radials and a cold air intake, but these might just be enough to give it the edge.
The Hellcat, on the other hand, uses its street rubber, while being completely stock.
Of course, the element linking the pedals to the steering wheels is extremely important and it seems the Dodge driver needs to work on his reaction times - keep in mind that the 121.4 mph trap speed of the car is close to the 125 mph oficial value of the animal.
In fact, a YouTuber claiming to have visited the playground hosting this battle (we're talking about Canada's Mission Raceway Park), has an explanation for this: "The Camaro driver is quite experienced I see him at the strip every drag night. [As for the Challenger guy] I think this is his first season at the strip so practice will help in the long run."
