What’s in the Box? The Contents of the Dodge Challenger Demon’s Drag-Racing Hellcrate

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

Here it isn’t even Thursday—which, lately, has been Demon day—but we have yet another slow drip of information about the upcoming Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Well, at least, about the drag-racing coupe’s accessory box. It’s a Demon-branded tool kit from Snap-on Business Solutions for getting the car drag-strip-ready.

We first learned the Demon would come with its own box of goodies toward the beginning of the teaser campaign, but what we could see was dark, and there was no specific information about what was included. Now we know the tools are for a “street-to-track transformation.” The crate includes a hydraulic floor jack, a cordless impact wrench and charger, a torque wrench, a tire-pressure gauge, a fender cover, and a duffel bag. Dodge says it will include 12 more parts, including Direct Connection performance parts, matching skinny front wheels for the strip, and a Demon Track Pack System.

The crate further shows that the Demon will be one of the most specialized vehicles to come from a mainstream manufacturer in recent memory. We already know it will be more powerful than the Hellcat, will have beefier driveshaft components, it’ll be at least 200 pounds lighter, and it will deliver its torque to the rear end by way of 315/40R-18 Nitto NT05R drag radials, among many other things. The car and its gear will be unveiled in full on April 11, on the eve of the New York auto show. Until then, get ready for more soul-sucking teasers.
