In theory, the driver of the Dodge Challenger Hellcat lining up next to the fifth-gen Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 at a drag strip has nothing to worry about.
After all, the two muscle monsters are separated by well over half the second when it comes to the 1/4 mile sprint.
However, as real-life Christmas Tree encounters will teach one, the outcome of such the fight won’t necessarily bring joy for Mopar fans.
For one thing, and there are plenty of ZL1 owners out there who are willing to keep their Chevys up to date and have thus turned to aftermarket side of the industry.
Let’s take a slab of GM involved in the piece of 1,320 feet sprinting shown here, for instance.
From what we can see in this video, this Camaro features modest mods, such as drag radials and the cold air intake, but these might just be enough to give it the edge.
The Dodge Challenger Hellcat, on the other hand, uses its street rubber, while being completely stock.
Of course, the element linking the pedals to a steering wheels is extremely important and it seems the Hellcat driver needs to work on his reaction times – keep in mind that the 121.4 mph trap speed of the vehicle is close to the 125 mph oficial value of the animal.
