Smack Talk Between Buddies Ends on the Strip, Whipple Mustang and Hellcat Throw Down

If you’ve ever had a somewhat fast car and also had friends with fast cars, well, naturally, it would follow that maybe a little bit of friendly competition would go down between you. It might start off with a little bit of smack talking and going back and forth, bantering about which car would be quicker from a certain kind of race and before long, you might end up out on the track next to the other person, forcing you to put your money where your mouth is. This can be an important situation as the result of such a race can be something that goes on for a while, giving bragging rights to either yourself or your friend which you might never live down.
This time, we check out a situation that has a decent matchup on paper unfolding on the drag strip. In one lane, you have a Coyote powered Ford Mustang that’s accompanied by a 2.9L Whipple supercharger and, in the other, we have none other than one of the big dogs off of the assembly line these days in a Dodge Charger Hellcat that also packs some pretty healthy muscle with 850hp in comparison to the Mustang’s 800. However, beings as it is a sedan, it might seem as if the car will be a little bit heavier, evening out the matchup with the stick shift Mustang.
If you follow along down in the video below, you’ll be able to see exactly how this race pans out and if the driver of the Mustang is going to be able to row gears to the point where he can come around the more powerful Hellcat, that has the edge of an automatic, and win the race to take home bragging rights. Who is going to be able to make their way through the finishline first? Check out the video below to find out!
