A Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat 2 MT proved to the muscle car enthusiasts that installing a clutch pedal to the vehicle would make it run faster. Furthermore, recent reported revealed that the make and model now has a competitive rival in the market with respect to its performance level. The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE SS nearly beat the Dodge at the Lighting Lap this year.

Last April, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat 2 was named as the fastest muscle car in the market. Despite its impressive performance, an owner of the model showed muscle car enthusiasts that it can still improve its speed with only one adjustment.

As reported by Torque News, the said owner revealed that with the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat 2 MT manual transmission model, adding a clutch pedal would actually make it run 140 miles per hour in a 10. 25 runs. In fact, the said owner raced Bill Gamble and beat his time with the said record.

Bill Gamble had been said to own a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat 2 MT that he installed with fine details to the car and made it perform better than with what it was bought for. Although he refused to reveal his tricks, the said Hellcat owner shattered his Sipple's record with the clutch pedal installed.

The Competition

The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat 2 MT has been winning several competitions over the year and it seemed like it has got some tougher competition now. As reported by The Daily Sun Knoxville, the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE SS model nearly beat it with only three seconds to spare at Car and Driver's Lightning Lap race this month.

With the 6-speed manual Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat 2 MT, car enthusiasts have proven that they, too, are capable of making a classic American muscle car perform better than the factories. Should the car maker consider their upgrades now that the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE SS is not far behind from beating it at competitions?
