The modern renaissance of the muscle car wars has been a dream come true for those who love factory-built street and race cars with insane amounts of horsepower. Detroit is back to pumping out cars with ridiculous power in all trim levels, and for now, the Dodge Demon is the king.
Todd Fullford put on a clinic for what the new Mopar missile is capable of at the YouTube Callout event, running a blistering 9.31 with only a handful of enhancements added to his Demon.
Fullford, who is known as SRTMush on YouTube, has been on the Dodge performance team for a while with his infamous nine-second Hellcat Charger. Recently, Fullford took delivery of his Demon and was ready to start begin changes to the boosted 6.2-liter Mopar. The car was even driven to Beech Bend Raceway in Kentucky for its maiden voyage down the track as Fullford tested it.
When Fullford arrived at Cecil County Dragway for the YouTube Callout event the Demon was ready to go with its new performance parts. The Mopar was now equipped with a 2.65-inch upper blower pulley, cat-less mid-pipe, 1,700cc injectors, Hoosier tires, and had been converted to run on E85 fuel. Since the car hadn’t spun the rollers yet on a dyno, Fullford estimates the car is making over 900 horsepower to the tires, based on its trap speed.
After a few shakedown passes, Fullford was finally able to get the Demon to hook and he was rewarded with a string of nine-second passes. The previous 2018 Dodge Demon record was held by Hennessey with a stout 9.38, but Fullford dropped the hammer on that with his 9.36-second pass and then proceeded to run a 9.34 and a 9.33, as well. Fullford’s record-setting day ended with a 9.31-second shot that featured a 1.32 60-foot and a 149 mph trap speed … almost fast enough to require a parachute.
