Dodge’s Hellcat powered lineup has set the standard for straight line speed. But what if you want to go faster than a Hellcat… without paying the big bucks for Hellcat? We came up with 7 theoretical project cars that we think could smoke a Hellcat Challenger in the quarter mile, and they’re all under $15k. We’re not saying they’re GREAT cars… we’re just saying they’d beat a Hellcat. Probably. This is the D-List!
Thank you to Diymike for sharing his Civic footage with us! Link to his channel: kgfun.info/will/FbuK0pV2qbQqHGVXFeLGIQ.html

  • Btw we saw that another channel posted a similar video this week, but before anyone asks, it’s actually because James hacked into their server and stole the idea along with their Runescape gold Just kidding, we usually shoot our videos at least 6 weeks in advance and filmed this all the way back in December. What would your DIY Hellcat Beater be?

  • When you said "that's not the only K on this list," I thought you were talking about VW's 07k 5-cylinder engine. Half a Lambo V10, it makes 170 HP stock and does a pretty good job of handling aftermaket upgrades. Sounds cool as hell, too. These are a really popular swap with the 944 crowd, and I plan on putting one in my '91 Jetta. With a turbo. Because I'd love about 400 HP in that car.

  • I disagree that you're going to run 10's in a DSM for under $10k. Just finding one that is unmolested is hard enough. Then, assuming you don't even touch the engine internally, you're going to need injectors, ECU, turbo, exhaust, cams, suspension parts, a boost gauge (because the stock one is useless), intercooler with piping and BOV (unless you modify the stock one, and NO DON'T EVER CRUSH THAT THING BECAUSE YOU'RE JUST GOING TO RUIN IT), and potentially some kind of ignition upgrade. There's probably a few more things I'm forgetting. The point being, if you really shop around and pay budget prices, you might just squeak in at under $10k but it's going to be tough to pull off. And then there's the elephant in the room: you haven't even touched the transmission. If you've got AWD, you're going to break that thing before you ever see a 10-second pass. I broke mine just by shifting briskly into third gear while driving home, and I was nowhere near at the power level required for a 10-second pass. The transmission is the Achilles' heel of the DSM, so you're going to want to allocate at least 3 grand towards making it handle all of that power. And the shifter mechanism is sloppy as hell, too, so don't forget the bushings and short-shift kit. I ran 11.91 @ 115 MPH on a tiny little small 16g turbo in my 2G GSX. I probably had close to, if not more than, $10k just in parts on the car altogether. Sure, I would have gone a lot faster with a larger turbo, but I daily drove my car and I really liked the way the small 16g worked on the street, and the idea was to incrementally upgrade the power as I could. And that larger turbo would have cost triple what I paid for the 16g. Now, if I really wanted to beat a Hellcat down the drag strip, I probably would choose a DSM without a doubt, because parts are so plentiful, relatively cheap, and they're easy as hell to modify. You definitely DON'T need to crack the engine open to run 10's, and transmission aside, everything is basically just bolt-ons. But I'd be very skeptical of anyone claiming to achieve this on the cheap. You're just not going to do it for less than 10 grand without breaking the shit out of something important. Edit: The Camaro is not a bad choice. However, none of the people I knew who had powerful ones had any idea of how to properly drive it down the track. I suppose the Hellcat faces the same problem, but hooking up in an AWD DSM is stupid simple. My method: rev the engine to 7500 RPM and dump the clutch. Speaking of which, I forgot to mention the clutch previously. Mine was an ACT 2600 with a full-face street disk. That clutch took everything I threw at it. The car would slide a bit with all 4 wheels spinning before shooting out of the hole. Good enough for a 1.69 60-ft.

  • You're not going to find a Metro/Swift chassis in decent enough condition to handle that engine for less than 2 grand. These things aren't as cheap as you think they are, in part because they've gained popularity due to being cheap and getting great gas mileage (with a few mods and some careful driving it's not hard to get 55 MPG out of one of these cars). They're also actually quite a bit fun to drive when equipped with a manual transmission. I know this is going to sound crazy, but they don't build cars like these anymore (primarily because of safety regulations that have made cars larger and heavier). It's like a go kart on wheels. I had a '91 Metro convertible and an '89 Swift GTi (also a 1.3L 4-pot, with nearly double the horsepower of the Metro at 100 hp). They were a ton of fun to drive and I wouldn't hesitate to own either one of them again, providing I could actually find one in good condition for a reasonable price. There's a decent selection of aftermarket parts available (yes even for the 3-cylinder engine), and if you're lucky, you could snag one of the turbo 3-pots, but those are usually in the older chassis cars like the Chevy Sprint, or the Pontiac Firefly. There was a guy back in the day who bolted up a giant Whipple to the 3-cylinder engine and turned his Metro into a land speed record car. It was pretty cool. I forget how much power it made (LOTS more than stock) or how fast it went (I think it was around 155 MPH or so), but it was a really awesome car.

  • "Imagine taking your Arctic Cat to a drag strip" I'm a snowmobile enthusiast and that's actually a BRP Ski-doo lol. And ya I've done more snow drag races on those but they're still stupid quick on tarmac. Like Yamaha's Sidewinder, it uses a one litre turbo 3 cylinder or 1.1 litre 3 cylinder and those things can make upwards of 300 horsepower with just an ECU. My neighbour has one, but it's a mountain snowmobile for deep snow, but he races it in snow and that thing is a beast. I have a Ski-doo 600RS which uses a 600ccc2 stroke engine. Mine is a snocross sled though (racing on a circuit with jumps) Glad to see someone from the car community acknowledge the power of snowmobiles!

Cause front wheel drive ain't gonna do it, if that's what you were somehow thinking. This is definitely somebody who knows fuckall about really building a car, just using weight and horsepower to bench race a hellcat...
