February 16, 2017 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon claws the road.
In video No. 3, Dodge revealed that the Challenger SRT Demon will be factory equipped with 18x11-inch lightweight wheels and 315/40R 18 Nitto NT05R street-legal drag radials. These new drag radials measure 12.6 inches wide and were designed and developed specifically for the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon using a new compound and unique tire construction.
The added traction and higher profile of these new tires allow the Challenger SRT Demon to handle higher launch torque loads. So, since it can now handle more, Dodge decided to give it more … more torque multiplication.
The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has been upgraded with a higher stall speed torque converter and 3.09 rear axle gears.
Result compared with a Challenger Hellcat: ◾Approximately 15 percent larger tire contact patch
◾More than twice as much grip
◾Approximately 18 percent increase in converter torque multiplication
◾Approximately 18 percent increase in rear axle torque multiplication
These upgrades alone enable the Challenger SRT Demon to generate more than 35 percent higher launch force than a Challenger Hellcat, and there are seven weeks to go.
Fans should visit www.ifyouknowyouknow.com to watch the 'Multiplication' video multiple times. Just like the previous videos, nothing is a coincidence and everything means something. Follow along with other teaser videos to learn more about what's next from Dodge and SRT.
