Stock-Power Hellcat Charger Runs a 10.71 Quarter Mile
Watch as a Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat with stock power rockets down the drag strip in the mid-10s.
We talk a great deal about the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat because that is the car setting the majority of the records in the Hellcat world, but we should remember that the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is just as wicked of a performance car. Although the Hellcat Chargers aren’t challenging the Challengers for the title of the quickest Hellcat cars, the supercharged sedan is the most powerful four-door car in the world, leading to some impressive quarter mile times of its own.
Today, we bring you a look at one of the quickest stock-power Hellcat Chargers on the road, which comes to us from the YouTube channel of Mike Alford. Mike is the owner and driver of this red Mopar sedan and with the original 707 horsepower, he has laid down some great quarter mile times.
Running 10s with a 4,500lb Sedan
Mike’s mod list is simple – smaller rear wheels with drag radials and a set of 3.09 gears. The engine is fully stock and there has been no weight removed from the car (shy of the rear wheel swap), so this is a 4,500 pound car with 707 horsepower and it runs well into the mid-10s.
In the video above, Mile Alford and his Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat are making a quarter mile run at Atco Dragway. After a quick burnout, he pulls to the line and you can hear how sticky the surface of the track is on this run, helping this supercharged sedan get out of the hole with extreme urgency. He stages and launches from idle, seemingly easing the car away from the starting line, but as he blasts through the top end traps, it is clear that this was not a gentle run – laying down a 10.71.
It should be noted that while the video shows a great run by Alford’s Charger, his Hellcat sedan has turned a best time of 10.65 at 129 miles per hour with only drag radials and the steeper gears.
Of course, the sound of the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is almost as awesome as the performance, so crank up your speakers and enjoy!
