The v10 drag pack challengers are for track only. They dont even have a vin number. The cars are really stripped down and have the safety featrues removed for weight. Not street legal. I think they are cool but I would want a street legal version and its not gonna happen.

Build test car #001 was built a few weeks ago, that paved the way for actual production to start sometime in March with the few changes that were needed.Still no word on which V10 is going in,I suspect the old viper version.

We have a 2010 Viper ACR-X (#004), an 09 (#50) 6.1L Challenger Drag-Pack, a 10 (#75) 5.9L Challenger Drag Pack in our collection and have a 2011 V10 drag pack coming. The first production unit was delivered to a racer in Houma, LA and it was in action last weekend.

The fact that these are not street legal should actually increase their collectability as it prevents most people from owning one, thus production is typically low.

Hi Gary
Nice to have another DP owner on the forum, we have been running DP # 28 the past few months and finished the season running a best of 9.465 @ 146mph, when setup they will run very consistant 9.4 to 9.5 runs all day long, if you are planning on racing it will be a must to have the suspension set up , the Roush set up is for shipping only.
Also as a side note , I have turned in to MOPAR an issue with the throttle peddle assembly , we had ours bend and stick to the tunnel at full throttle running thru the trap and had to kill the engine to stop, the engineers are looking into the problem.

The cars are built from bodies in white at the main Roush plant in Lavirna Michigan, on the other end of the plant they assemble the CJ and SCJ mustangs, it's to bad you did not get a chance to pick the car up there and take a tour.
What plans do you have for your car? We are going to be in the 8.2 to 8.5 for next year, going against some big name SCJ mustangs.

thanks for your answer...dale aldo told me they were "built in michigan" why so secretive.. Thanks for your answer. I bought the car as an investment. As you know on the v10s they stopped production at 50. The rest they told me they would sell off engine transmission. The car stays in the garage and i crank it up every week and just let it idle..thanks gary white
