New England Dragway June 8th - Hellcat against Super Snake

NE Dragway is hosting NHRA races until June 5th. On June 8th I've been challenged by 3 Hellcats on a well prepped track. So, I said I wouldn't do it, but I'm reneging. So I'm getting drag radials and going to put some modified Hellcats to shame. So f you live n New England it will be worth the trip to Epping NH. The fun starts at 6pm on June 8th. Bring your modified mustang and let's all kick some Dodge butts!

I wish I lived closer. Should be fun to watch, and even more fun to drive.

I wouldn't discount the Mopars. They are a bigger, heavier car, but that can translate to more traction. The HellCat on its own is no slouch. With a few modifications and good drivers the cars are very quick.

I'll have to get the details that night. Definitely aftermarket drive shafts, drag radials, suspension work and tunes.

I live within an hour of the track, but have never been there. I will certainly try my best to go however.
Curious to see if any of the Hellcats are Chargers. They're a bit faster then the Challenger. Not that it should make much of a difference with the Snake having the HP advantage as well as being about 600 to 700 lbs lighter.
I hope at least the hellcats will be sporting drag radials and the 8 speed automatic transmission.
Should be a great take.

New set of drag sneakers. I like to call them Hellcat Killers. M/T ET drag radials 305/40R18....I couldn't have stuffed anything bigger in the wheel wells. Thank goodness for negative camber!

I agree, it is a gorgeous car. I wish I could be at the track for the race. I love a good grudge match.

I will likely hit my local track for some grudge racing in Thursday. I won't be running my car. I will likely be stuck in a MOPAR 😋

Once I get my transmission sorted out and fit a new set of tires on my car, I plan to challenge Project Pony to a little quarter mile fun. New Edge convertible vs New Edge convertible.

This is going to be a fun night. I was warned by one of the Hellcats that if I can't break into the high 10's and don't have a great R/T, I am going to lose. Oh boy. Hopefully he's just trying psych me out. I'm easily into the low 11's by my estimate, but I don't know if I want to drive the car hard enough to hit 10's.

He has run his car a lot and knows the torque curve of his motor, what launch RPM works best, and what tire pressure to have in the rear to get his best time. I don't know any of this for the Super Snake. I do have about 100hp more than him so hopefully that helps compensate. I'll be testing and tuning while he is running with known parameters. This is going to be interesting.

It's possible that Cat is seeing high 10s.

Those are the same DR'S I'm looking at picking up, it'll be nice to see em in action first. Can't wait for the videos.

Wednesday is looking iffy. Calling for PM thunderstorms and small hail. Unless the weather forecast changes, that doesn't sound like weather in which the Shelby is venturing out.

I'll put up a post Wednesday morning calling it one way or the other.

Good!
I've been looking closely at the forecast, as I was definitely planning to go, weather permitting.

Is the snake making early excuses about playing with the kittens?

Joking. I haven't seen any of the weather that was predicted. Hopefully it will pass you by as well. I got a bit of rain today, but luckily nothing like what could have blown in. I needed the rain, the trees were beginning to show signs of dehydration.

Who likes weather men, raise yourhand. No one? Not surprising.

So, the forecast has improved quite a bit. No longer calling for hail, but we may have thunderstorms right at 5pm (when we get tech checked). Supposedly by 6pm it'll be clear weather, and relatively cool. So, it looks like it's a go.

Car is ready. Front tires are inflated to max pressure. Rears will start at 32lbs as I drive to the track, only to be dropped to something between 18lbs and 14lbs depending on how she behaves. I fully expect to be in the high 10's without too much effort. I've done some calculating (for what that is worth) and I'm thinking this car could be low 10's and maybe high 9's if I get lucky, have the cahonas, and my shifting is spot on. I'll have slips to post tomorrow night!
