I feel like the Exorcist would have won if it wasn't for the +1hr it took to convert the Demon into drag strip mode. Replacing tires, center consoles, special fuel, ECU... Then it only wins by 2 car lengths.
Probably all the same stuff? They kept complaining that the Exorcist has 1000bhp, but stock tires, brakes and everything else that a normal Camaro comes with. The Demon only comes with 1 seat and a huge damn crate with parts only useful for the drag strip. The Demon came in 3rd around the track they setup.
Well of course the demon came in last on a course. It's a street legal drag car. A Smart car could beat an NHRA dragster on anything with a corner.
But my comment is still accurate. A 55k Hennessy-mod on top of a 62k camaro hardly qualifies as a production car. Chevy doesn't have the stones to put a car like that into real production. Hell, they can't even decide if they want to keep making a regular camaro or not.
