By now, anybody with even a remote interest in muscle cars has seen what the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is capable of. However, the race isn't over yet.

You see, when the Mopar people released the Demon, we were told that the thing would deliver a 9.65s quarter-mile time, with the automotive producer even delivering the time slips to prove it.

However, no Demon owner to date has been able to reach that number, even though runs sitting at 9.8 seconds or perhaps even slightly less have been recorded using stock condition cars.

Demon aficionados expect the cooler weather to allow the uber-Dodge to make full use of its potential and we're looking forward to bringing the news to you.

Meanwhile, the aftermarket side of the industry has made the Demon even quicker, as expected. The current world record sits in the 8s 1,320-foot arena. Then again, the example that delivered such a run had been taken far, far away from its stock condition.

To be more precise, its 6.2-liter HEMI had lost the supercharger. Instead, the motor had been gifted with a twin-turbo setup, one that allowed it to deliver around 1,400 horsepower for the said run.

Then there was the hefty carbon fiber diet of the thing, which allowed the Challenger to lose around 600 lbs, with the vehicle tipping the scales at about 3,800 lbs.

So, until the stock Dodge Demon manages to hit its goal, we've brought along a piece of footage that can help fans pass the time.

The video, which can be found below, sees a stock Demon duking it out with a ton of modded pickup trucks, which come from Detroit's Big Three. Some of the bed wielders feature serious aftermarket goodies, with their owners obviously aiming to show the world they can take down the mighty Dodge Demon.
