Nitrous (Old) Charger Drags Twin Turbo Civic and GT-R, Absolute Destruction Ensues

Herman Young and his desire to make the Demonology channel one of the best places on YouTube for Mopar quarter-mile aficionados have recently led to the discovery, salvage, and rebuild of an LX Charger into a veritable 1,000-hp nitrous-fed monster.

Dubbed 'Silverback,' this reborn quarter-mile dragstrip fighter is now an integral part of Team Soul Snatcher (the name of his beloved, now defunct, Dodge Challenger SRT Demon) alongside other crazy machines like a 'Last Call' Dodge Challenger, now rechristened as 'Black Ghost' and packing around 1,200 horsepower of tire-burning love.

However, currently, the accent is on Silverback because Young is trying to get as many races as possible behind it ahead of various competitions. So, it is no wonder he is constantly visiting his home venue of Texas Motorplex – home of the NHRA Texas Fall Nationals and setting up races left and right. Besides, he's a patriot and never misses a chance to give the 'domestic versus import' brawls an opportunity to shine.

In the latest feature embedded below, he is at the quarter-mile drag racing facility located in Ennis, Texas (40 miles south of downtown Dallas), and during 'Race Wars,' he chose to fight it out with a twin-turbo Honda Civic hot hatchback and a "nasty," tuned Nissan GT-R driven by a fellow lady racer.

First on call was the R35, and the white Nissan GT-R sure looked ready for great things when it lined up at the quarter-mile marker. However, the 2009 Dodge Charger – a salvaged and rebuilt Mopar – proved too much to handle, and the nitrous-fed monster rocked the dragstrip with a spectacular victory. Secondly, the little red Civic was ready for the brawl, even though its driver and team probably saw what happened with the tuned GT-R.

We hoped their confidence wasn't just cockiness and bravery to not back out of a losing deal. However, the Charger again proved to be more than the small hatchback could chew upon, so it was another win for Team Soul Snatcher. Now that we see his rides are some of the nastiest out there, we sure hope that Herman will take the time to invest in some decent cameras – we really want to see the ETs and trap speeds of his projects!

Anyway, if you are not done with 'domestic versus import' drag racing, may we also recommend taking a quick peek at the recent video (embedded second below) from the Wheels Plus channel on YouTube, where The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway was visited by an aggressive BMW 3 Series and a Dodge Challenger Scat Pack. Interestingly, it seems these quick Bavarians are always something to behold, even when they don't sport the M3 badges of honor!
