2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack
Thanks! I've been trying to hit 11.50's more often. I hit 11.59 last month and then this month I got the 11.56 which was cool.
- catch can
- hellcat airbox
- Jay Greene tune
- Fastman throttle body
- Racestar wheels
- Drag radials / front skinnies
Suspension is stock. Running M/T ET Street R 305/45/17's on the back and M&H 28-4.5/17 radial front runners on the front.
I have tons of videos up under my Youtube channel under Novaguy383.Seen a guy up on Youtube also doing similar numbers with his 392, this is Hellcat territory and says a lot about how fast these cars can run with the right driver and hooking with the right tires. Great Job
No, it's very easy. Takes me 5-10 minutes tops. Four bolts and two harness clips underneath the seat. Entire seat along with the tracks comes right out. You need an E12 socket to get the star headed bolts out without rounding them off. Very easy.Wow - great run! Is there anything difficult about pulling the passenger seat? I've thought about it but never done it...Do you need a special socket for those star-headed bolts holding them in?
I typically run 11.60-11.70's but since the weather was pretty decent I pulled the seats to see if I could hit 11.50's.Carl, are you taking the back seat and passenger seat out on those runs? If not it should be worth a bit more to lose the weight, of course that's more work before hitting the track and makes it kind of tough to haul any passengers lol.
Thanks!Well done Carl! Excellent ET and fantastic 60' & MPH in less than ideal DA. Are you running the same TB you were running last year or did you change it over the off season?
It's hard to accurately quantify the effect of weight reduction on a particular car as there are so many variables. It seems that generally on a street car that runs say 12's to 14's that around 100lbs is good for .1 off your ET. The effect on ET goes down the faster the car gets though.Somebody mentioned this years ago so don't know if it's true or not......."every 10 lbs of weight lost is equal to "about" 1HP"
Anyone know if that's true?
The Fastman TB looks to be a good upgrade. Where any tune changes required to get it to work well?No, I changed out the Modern Muscle 87mm TB to a Fastman 84mm TB. I believe the Fastman is a better unit. It has a true 84mm bore vs the MM 80mm bore (which is the same as stock). The one side of the throttle shaft is also removed so when you are wide open it's actually flowing 88mm.
Yes, a tune is required for the 84mm TB. He also makes a TB that still retains the stock bore but improves throttle response that does not require a tune, but I don't think you pick up much power if any with that one.The Fastman TB looks to be a good upgrade. Where any tune changes required to get it to work well?
