    A lot of people are saying that the 7:57 on the Peefomance Pages video is the torque number.
    Somewhere they picked up a 787 or something they think will be HP

    One video does show a Demon Harness bar which looked like a 2 point roll bar

    Can you blame someone for wanting to get her tested beforehand?

    I with you; I just want to know the damn specs.

    I think we're still a month away from the full release.

    I had a good laugh when I saw they upgraded the driveline. No way it does 125 in the 1/8th but I could see a scenario where it does run 10.5 in the lowest setting. That's a few tenths better than their NHRA certified rating for the Chally HC (10.8 iirc) with DRs. From there you can crank it up. The damn thing better run 9s out of the box.

    So the Hellcat blower is rated at 11.6 psi. It looks to me that the Demon will be about 15 psi. They obscured it in the video, but the line looks exactly the same as the line on the last page. That line would mark about 15 psi... so I don't know how to math that out to how many more ponies that is, but that's my guess.

    edit: in fact, all 3 lines appear exactly the same. I think this tells us the Demon's boost. Hold on, making a gif...

    That has to be the boost line... maybe closer to 14 psi now that I'm looking at it on a loop like that.

    I highly doubt that. Same line for all graphcs, and a PD blower boost curve looks nothing like that.

    Nah, I think that's probably a swing and a miss.

    Same. Every time I see this thread move to the top, I just roll my eyes because I know it's just some dumb ass teaser with nothing substantial. My give-a-fuck is officially busted when it comes to this car.

    only one month away from the NYIAS. Other than some kind of incredible unveiling I think they've done this car an injustice with this marketing campaign

    Overdone no doubt, but saying if it is 1khp it will be disappointing is hilarious.

    I think it will be about 800hp on pump gas. No idea how much HP you can get out of race gas and a new map.

    3.9+221=405

    Who knows in Dodge-math land

    405 almost sounds like a displacement... but that would put it bigger than the current Hellcat motor, so I don't think that's it. Unless they're using some sort of super charger math to give a 'virtual' displacement number. I have no idea.

    Didn't even see that
    I dunno about those first 2 numbers... 22 lbs of boost? That woule be double the boost of the current Hellcat... I don't think that is it. The 405 = 6.6L thing is what made me say that in the first place. So close to the 6.2L that it seems plausible that some Dodge-math is making it a 6.6L or something.

    Have you not read the thread? This is dodge doubling down on the retarded marketing campaign.

    Not sure what is worse, the marketing campaign or 5.0this's constant crying about the campaign.

    3.9 seconds 0-100 mph + 221 mph top speed = 405 years in prison.
