    Dodge Challenger SRT8 Runs a 9.53, Setting a New World Record

    Dodge Challenger SRT8 Runs a 9.53, Setting a New World Record-image2-jpg


    This past weekend, David Crockett and his 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 rocketed down the quarter mile in just 9.53 seconds during the Modern Street Hemi Shootout event at Virginia Motorsports Park – setting a new world record for the quickest modern Challenger with a 6-speed manual transmission.

    Before getting into David Crockett’s world record run, I want to clarify his record claim. In running a 9.53 quarter mile, Crockett’s 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 set the record for the quickest quarter mile time by a modern Mopar machine with the factory-equipped 6-speed manual transmission. Some of you might be wondering how this record relates to the current Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat quarter mile record set by the Epling Garage car at 9.06. Leon Epling’s record-setting Hellcat Challenger does feature a manual transmission, but it is an aftermarket racing transmission, not the factory-equipped TR6060, and that is the key difference between the two records.

    With the Liberty race transmission, Leon Epling’s Hellcat Challenger set the record for the entire Hellcat community, but in terms of those Mopar muscle cars with the original 6-speed, David Crockett’s Challenger is the quickest in the world. Not to take anything away from the Hellcat record-setting run in the Epling Garage Challenger, but this 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is being shifted with the clutch like your average street-driven cars – and David Crockett gets through the gears well enough to lay down a mid-9-second quarter mile. No Dodge Challenger with the factory-equipped manual transmission has run a quicker ET.

    David Crockett bought his 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 new and he quickly decided that he wasn’t happy with the stock horsepower. With the help of Josh Schwartz at High Horse Performance, this Challenger has been transformed into the quickest of its kind and the heart of that record is under the hood.
