    Careful, the quote you are about to read is drenched in estrogen. "The 840-hp Dodge Challenger SRT Demon from Fiat Chrysler is so inherently dangerous to the common safety of motorists that its registration as a road-worthy automobile should be banned." Somehow the hyperbole being spewn seems to be much more dangerous especially to common sense. If we really want to get down to what is safe for our roads more people will be killed or injured by senior drivers than those with a Demon. Frankly, no Demons are even on the road so how is the author coming to the conclusion that the car needs to be kept off public roads for safety reasons? Well, because the premature and negative conclusion fits the narrative. This is one of those same people that sees a gun and automatically classifies it as an assault rifle based on the appearance and not the application. You know what the world needs? More Dodge Demons. More manufacturers that take enthusiasts into account. More cars that are fun to drive and less vehicles that are tuning into appliances that remove the driver from the equation. What does this person think is going to happen? A Demon on the road is just going to suddenly start driving into people? Owners will be drag racing across crowded parking lots? A teenager in a Honda who just got out of seeing a Fast and the Furious movie is more dangerous on the road than an adult behind the wheel of a performance car they paid for and are familiar with. The Demon is no more dangerous sitting in traffic than any other car. A 5700+ pound sport utility vehicle crammed with luggage and passengers traveling over the speed limit on the highway that physics simply will not allow to stop in the same distance as a lighter car is a much more dangerous proposition than the Demon. Truckers who have not slept for who knows how long hauling tons of goods on the highway across the country are a much more dangerous proposition than the Demon. If anything, the Demon is safer than the standard Hellcat. It is built for traction off the line which means you can get into trouble a lot easier with tire spin on the standard Hellcat. The tires offer more grip, not less. How is the Demon a result of misguided corporate choices? It is built to be the quickest production vehicle in the 1/4 mile and achieves that goal. It does so on an NHRA dragstrip, not the street. Did someone forget those exist? A place where you can take your car and run as fast as you want to without endangering the public? The Demon is the result of incredible engineering, development, and effort. Dodge did not randomly roll some dice and end up with the Demon. What they accomplished for the money has never been achieved. This kind of fear mongering is an enemy to the entire automotive world: It is not banned for being too fast. The NHRA requires a roll cage for cars that are quicker and faster than set limits. If the Demon is 'too fast' so are a host of other street legal cars. All that is necessary to get them into compliance is a roll cage you hack. It is not the Demon that needs to be removed. It is this garbage from Automotive News. The author did not even have the courage to put their name on it. That tells you what the purpose of it actually is. Source

    BimmerBoost is filled with people chasing horsepower. Some of them get sick of trying to push BMW's motors to lofty heights. Fortunately, that is where the BoostAddict.com Automotive Performance Network comes in to cater to all enthusiasts. @lamboworld previously had a 2008 FBO E82 135i and a 2009 FBO E89 Z4 35i. Now he has a C6 Z06 that makes 585 to the tires naturally aspirated and goes well over 700 wheel horsepower with nitrous: Here is the full mod list: Advanced Induction 280cc head porting with milling of.03 Replaced guided with CHE guides OEM Intake Valves and Replaced Exhaust Valves with Ferrea Hollow 2040P BTR 660" Platinum Dual Spring kit with TI Retainers Chromoly Pushrods ARP Head Bolts Straub Bushing Trunions Hinson C7R Chain Comp Cam: 226/246, .60x/.61x, @ .050", 114+2 LSA Mamo Ported MSD Intake NW 102 TB 160 Thermostat NGK TR7 Iridium Plugs Haltech 103 Intake Kooks Headers and Catted X Pipe B&B Fusion Gen 3 Exhaust Mild to Wild switch on dead pedal DRM Bilstein Shocks with bushings lowered on Stock Bolts Monster LT1-S Triple Disc Organic Clutch with Slave and Remote 36" bleeder. Motul RTF 600 Clutch Fluid Elite Engineering 1/4" Tunnel plate with Thermal ABS Nitrous Outlet MSD Plate Kit Nitrous Outlet Heater Katech Belt Tensioner with Belt Nitrous Outlet C6 Stand Alone Fuel tank with C16 Nitrous Outlet Purge Kit Nitrous Express Maximizer 4 Progressive Controller Custom Nitrous Switch for Arm, Heater and Purge Lingenfelter LNC 2000 Timing Retard Custom Billet Aluminum Nano and Nitrous Bottle brackets SB Painted Proform Valve covers Coils Relocated under Haltech heat shield with custom MSD plug wires Skip Shift Eliminator R888's for the Track Custom Crystal Grey Powder Coated Spyders for Track Machine Face Cup wheels with MPSS and Jake Center Caps Eagle LED Tail Lights Lingenfelter Clutch Stop GM 427 Hood Emblems Not a bad way to go, is it? Especially with the tuning value C6 Z06's offer today.

    BimmerBoost member @pits200 has an automatic BMW 335xi with the VTT GC N54 turbocharger upgrade. The car has 115k miles on it and has not exactly been babied as it has been tuned for over 100k miles at this point. This is important to point out as the GC upgrade is obviously making big torque but his trans is holding the power at 26 psi of boost. It is running well as the drag race video below will testify to. He knows the transmission is on borrowed time but so far with a TCU flash it's holding together and not slipping. You can read his build thread here if you like.

    What if Cipher hacks it like all of the other Mopars in Fate of the Furious? The Demon might be more dangerous sitting in traffic than any other car :laughing-rofl:
