More Muscle Car Drag Races When Dodge Demon Takes On Mustang GT And Challenger Scat Pack

A Dodge Challenger R/T takes on a Scat Pack 1320 and a Mustang GT in quarter-mile drag races.

Challengers

Watch a series of Dodge Challengers compete along with a Ford Mustang GT and even a Demon in quarter-mile action.

Welcome back to Mission Park Raceway in sunny British Columbia, Canada! It seems that the raceway has remained busy with Challengers of all stripes driving through, including a new Scat Pack 1320 model and even a Dodge Demon. A Mustang GT adds a little Ford flare as well just so we’re not convinced that Dodge completely owns the drag track. Although they mostly do.

To start, we have a Dodge Demon against the new Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320. That’s the new package that adds a lot of the Demon’s drag race technology, such as Trans Brake and Torque Reserve. It does not, however, have anywhere near the same power as the Demon, topping out at 485 horsepower from its 6.4-L HEMI V8. That’s still a lot, but it’s nowhere near the Demon’s 840 horsepower.

We’re guessing there might have been an agreement before this race to give the Scat Pack a bit of a head start. The R/T Challenger roars ahead WAY before the Demon driver even places its foot on the gas, giving it quite the early lead. However, the Demon is a Demon, and it’s easily able to catch up before the end.

Still, we’re impressed by the way the 1320 can launch extremely consistently. In its next race against a Mustang GT, we see how well the 1320 package compares to a stock Mustang without any of the good drag race bits that were perfected in the Demon.

The Challenger is once again quick off the line, although the Mustang seems almost equally quick. It’s neck and neck down the raceway but the Challenger just edges out the Mustang with a final time of 12.10 seconds at 112.64 mph. The Mustang GT finished in 12.39 seconds at 112.33 mph.

Finally, we have the base R/T Challenger taking on the upgraded Challenger 1320. The regular R/T doesn’t have any of the same drag race gizmos of the 1320, so this is a great way to see what the new 1320 package gets you. Judging by the results, it seems well worth the money.
