2016 Hellcat Go Man Go
#1
Got some time this week to edit up the video from MSHS KY last weekend. It was hot but fun. My main race focus was the 10.00 index class but you automatically get the bracket race entry with the ticket so I raced in both. Ran a 10.07 at 140MPH right off the trailer in 3669 DA so I was pretty happy. Then I started playing with the tune a bit to try to improve my 60' as I knew the day would get hotter and the DA would go up. I'm not sure what apps folks were using but DA numbers the apps were giving were all over the place, so when I got home I took my time slips and looked up the weather data on Weather Underground and plugged that info in to Air Density Online and found the DA ranged from 3669 early in the day to 4298 in the afternoon.

I'm pretty happy with the car's performance and it's consistency. I didn't really have to do anything to it other than check tire pressure and cool down 20 minutes or so between rounds to run almost identical times. I may look in to some suspension upgrades for the fall to get that 60' down as that's really the only thing I think needs improvement.

Nope, it was hot, the guys posting the 8's passes were not during the event but at night. Just the facts, it was stupid hot. Speedy introduced himself, went to probably every pit. I don't think he is a bracket racer, I maybe wrong but I think he likes to throw down, bring the heat.

Guys coming from Arizona and running slow during the event, it turned out that my stock drive train was the 3rd quickest at the event (behind Epling and Grumpy, both pro mods). It just amazes me, I am running boost only, no nitrous, and all these super quick hellcats are slower. If I sprayed, hmmmmm. I did not because everyone was yelling at me, I blown up 3 blowers on spray.

Speedy is a good egg, made sure to introduce himself.

Meeting folks is a big part of it for me. I was disappointed to hear Simon was there and I never saw him.

Speedy,
Hopefully we'll meet at the Detroit MSHS. I was pitted right next to Cole and the Eplings. Between helping a bunch of other racers and dealing with my own car issues I was running around a lot. Sorry we missed each other.

Well the Hellcat built in Arizona by SRT Autoworks went a 8.90 no spray and 4500lbs in some dam bad hot weather.Plus no weight reduction minus the race seats. I believe Marc is the fastest Hellcat in the US with no spray and boost only weighing in at 4500lbs. Marc is tied 8th on the list as a pretty dam fast cat!
Hey speedy your videos are always the best! It’s like I have a man crush on you lol! Can’t wait till the next video. Lol dont make it weird.
