Dodge are keeping us busy each Thursday morning and by releasing teasers of their upcoming Challenger SRT Demon.
Detailed in the eighth installment of the campaign is a Launch Assist system designed to reduce wheel hop.
This phenomenon happens when tires slip and the regain traction and launch, thus storing up and releasing energy in a driveline, which can damage components.
Not anymore, as a Launch Assist uses wheel speed sensors to watch for signs of tire-slipping/sticking, if this is detected, then a control module reduces torque to maximize traction, almost instantly, with no necessary lift from a driver. The system is said to reduce loads in the driveline by more than 15-20 percent.
Compared to a Challenger SRT Hellcat, Dodge’s Demon also has the upgraded prop shaft that increases torque capacity by 15 percent, upgraded differential housing with 30 percent increased torque capacity, tweaked 41-spline halfshafts, which deliver 20 percent more torque capacity.
We also learn that the Demon gets the new four-point harness bar for use on the track.
Being that the rear seats were removed, and the mounting points are easily accessible, without cutting or drilling anything inside the vehicle..
That was really over the top. What do you think of this next video?
