Another Thursday means more Demon propaganda via the horsepower fetishists at Dodge. This kind of time, the idea’s about the ultra Challenger’s completely new Drag mode and also also also adaptive suspension.

Compared with the Challenger SRT Hellcat, the Demon’s adaptive Bilstein dampers are “drag tuned,” which inside the racing community means they are designed to maximize load transfer to the rear axle during a hole shot by limiting rebound on the front axle. They’ll work in concert with what we assume is usually an upgraded launch-control system meant to kill every rear-wheel-drive competitor on a quarter-mile. Fiat Chrysler included a few different cryptic details of which may refer to Drag mode’s launch characteristics (disabling traction control, keeping stability control), although we’re not attempting to decode them until we hear more. Or, you can try cracking the “13.5 = 575 @ 500” formula inside the smoke cloud above.

To launch even harder than a Hellcat, the Demon employs spring rates of which are 35 percent lower at the front and also also also 28 percent lower out back. Anti-roll bars tone the idea down, too, having a 75 percent lower rate up front (a lighter, hollow piece, by the way) and also also also a 44 percent reduction for the rear. More details will trickle out in yet another video of which we ultimately have no choice about covering and also also also you cannot resist watching.

We are fairly confident the Photoshopped “815” marking on the Demon’s sidewall means This kind of drag-ready Challenger will make 815 horsepower. Which means our earlier wild-ass speculation isn’t so wild.
