Watch a Dodge Demon and Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 take each other on in quarter-mile action.
Sadly, this is not the new 2020 Mustang GT500, which still hasn’t been released to dealerships yet. That car will surely throw a wrench in the Demon’s undisputed dominance of the drag strip (at least, after a few modifications). However, the 2014 GT500 is still a beastly car that shouldn’t be taken lightly.
We have Demonology to thank for yet another great video that starts off with him at the garage getting a new upgrade. In this case, it’s the lower control arm for his Demon’s front suspension. Supposedly this will help the car take impacts a little better, which is definitely something that the Soul Snatcher (as he likes to call his ride) will need. You’ll see why in the video later.
Up first though is a Chevy Corvette. This one appears to be driven by a couple of young guns, which is strange given the car itself appears to be older than they are. That’s definitely a late-model C3 Corvette with a set of drag radials and an engine that produces enough power to lift the nose off the ground for much of the race.
As cool as a wheelie is, you actually don’t want to have too much lift-off from the front of the car. A bouncing suspension will bleed speed, and that’s what happened to the Corvette and allowed the Demon to catch it even though it had a better start.
And then came the Mustang GT500. This thing has at least 662 horsepower from a supercharged 5.8-L V8 engine, but that’s probably not what it has now. According to Demonology, this car has been modified, although we’re not told exactly what is stock and what’s changed.
Maybe you can spot what’s up in the video above. Take a look at the Mustang’s performance and see how it compares to the Demon. That’ll give you an idea.
