There are tons of Hellcat owners for whom a 707-pony factory output isn’t nearly enough. One such example comes from the Challenger in this video, which also shows the risks associated with giving your supercharged Mopar machine the steroid treatment.
We’re dealing with the Dodge Challenger Hellcat that has been pushed all the way to 1,000 horsepower. For one thing, this video allows us to see the beast purging its nitrous before the race.
As the Dodge sprints towards the 1/4 mile horizon, the thing snaps a half axle, with the drivetrain failing under a monstrous assault of the engine.
Oh, and let’s not forget that the overly grippy surface of a drag strip also puts extra strain on components such as the one that failed.
Speaking of which, turning to thestrengthened drivetrain components doesn’t always mean you are safe. For example, we’ll remind you of the time when the tuned Hellcat destroyed its carbon fiber driveshaft during the drag strip adventure. It’s worth mentioning that the said muscle coupe had been tuned to 900 horsepower.
As anybody familiar with the Hellcat badge is aware, a factory-blown 6.2-liter V8 doesn’t need too much aftermarket attention to deliver the hefty muscle increase.
