Challenger Hellcat Widebody Brings More Grip, New Goodies




Quote:
Wider, meaner and faster, the new 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody ups the big cat’s already astronomical performance credentials.

The widebody Hellcat pilfers the fender flares first seen on the Challenger SRT Demon that add 3.5 inches of girth and oodles of grip. Dodge claims the Hellcat Widebody is 2 seconds per lap quicker than a regular Hellcat around the 1.7-mile road course at FCA’s Chelsea Proving Grounds.

According to Dodge, the Hellcat Widebody was always planned to launch after the Demon, offering a high-performance alternative to those who miss out on the limited-run Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.

But it’s not just a wider track that helps the Hellcat hustle harder, new 20-inch 'Devil’s Rim' split-five-spoke aluminum wheels wrapped in 305/35ZR20 Pirelli P-Zero performance rubbers (much wider than the base car’s 275s) are partially responsible for the 0.04g increase in lateral grip, along with a 0.1 reduction in zero-to-60 time. It will be the 0.3-second ET reduction down the quarter mile that’s most important to the Hellcat community, however.

The wider Pirelli Zero 305/35/20 tire with its huge 10.6 inches, should definitely improve traction over the 275/35/20 tire, that has .8 inch less width (9.8 inches).

I'm more interested in knowing how much more rubber you could fit on those wheels.

They don't mention if the wheels are any wider.

Wheels could be better. Demon wheels look good, these not as much. Believe they are zero offset if anyone wants to start looking around.
