Watch the 2009 Charger-swap Hellcat wipe the floor with a 1,000-horsepower Subaru STI

production Dodge Charger The Challenger Hellcats expire in December 2023. However, this does not mean that the Hellcat era is also coming to an end this year. It may take several years before that evade Gear enthusiasts and speed freaks can move on to electric muscle cars. For now, Hellcat-powered cars are still the stars of the drag strip, as evidenced by Demonology’s Hellcat-replaced 2009 Dodge Charger taking on the 1,000-horsepower Subaru WRX STI.

Dodge introduced the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 Hellcat engine in 2015. Delivering a maximum power of 707 horsepower at the time, the engine debuted in the 2015 Dodge Charger and Challenger. Thus, in 2009, it was not possible to have The Charger has a Hellcat engine under the hood. But this particular 2009 Charger now has a Hellcat engine as its core, thanks to a popular Mopar enthusiast and YouTuber named Herman Young.

Young was part of the team selected by Dodge to participate in the recent Roadkill Nights Grudge Race event. He formed a team with Lee Carter – Team Soul Snatcher – and partnered with Nyle Maxwell Dodge Power Brokers agency and Bailey’s Hyperformance. Each team received a Hellcrate Redeye direct-connected 6.2-liter supercharged Crate Hemi engine, a plug-and-play engine control unit (ECU), and $15,000 to create the ultimate race car for the streets.

Each Grudge Race team can use only a Dodge, Ram, Chrysler, or Plymouth chassis to build their bodies. Team Soul Snatcher selected a 2009 Dodge Charger, took the car apart and rebuilt it for the event. Young used his Mopar experience extensively on this design, giving birth to the proper drag strip monster called the Silverback.

Silverback continues to get into drag races after Roadkill nights

Roadkill Nights ended with Team Soul Snatcher losing in the semi-finals. Since then, Young has moved on and continued his hobby of modifying anything Mopar. He never stopped tuning his nitrous Silverback, increasing its power levels to 1,000 horsepower of maximum output. In standard form, the Hellcrate Redeye Crate engine can deliver 807 horsepower of maximum output and 717 pound-feet of peak torque.

Young brought the Silverback to the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas, to find a worthy opponent. Some racers didn’t mind racing against Young and Silverback, including Kraken Motorsports and their 1,000-horsepower twin-turbo 2005 Subaru WRX STI. This was a good match, and either car could have won the race. But it looked weird in the Subaru and Silverback race, resulting in a big gap and the STI losing the race.

Before the Dodge vs. Subaru drag race, Young had the opportunity to challenge Luna Rose Tran and her Hello Kitty GT-R called LunaTik to a rematch. Young has beaten Luna several times in the past, and maybe it’s time to let her enjoy the drag strip without caring about demonology. Meanwhile, Young is willing to race anyone he thinks can beat him in his silverback.
