Remember when the Viper was the SRT halo car? Well, those days of taking on Lamborghini and Ferrari on a budget are behind us, with muscle cars now being the top priority. And while it's still too early to bring you adventures involving the reigning Mopar king, namely the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye, we're here for something even more powerful, namely the retired Dodge Demon.
With all 3,300 units of the Demon having been brought to the world, there are plenty of owners out there who make full use of their machine. Of course, packing 840 horsepower doesn't always guarantee a drag racing win.

For instance, there are Hellcat owners out there who have tuned their machines with the Demon in mind. And we've brought along an example involving a Charger.

The four-door we have here might still its Hellcat badges, but the thing has left its factory output far behind. According to the owner of the super-sedan, the thing now packs around 900 horsepower at the rear wheels, hence the crankshaft horsepower approximation in the title above.

And, as faith would have it, the gym-visiting Charger Hellcat came across a Demon. Alas, the two weren't at the drag strip, but they decided to duke it out anyway.

The drivers turned to the usual rolling start shenanigan, since this is quicker, less disruptive as far as the traffic is concerned and allows the one behind the wheel to skip any traction-related problems.

The whole stunt is documented in the piece of footage at the bottom of the page, with the pair of Mopar animals racing on more than one occasion.

P.S.: Please don't use such adventures as an example and keep the triple-digit sprinting for the drag strip. After all, the advantages of the track are plenty, from the safety to the proper timing and the prepped surface that allwos one the make the most out of a machine's potential.
