    6 Speed Top Stick

    I'm still a clutch using TR6060. Leon Epling with same horsepower ran 9.06/9.08 with a Liberty clutchless.

    Let's See Your Crazy Cooler Mods

    I had to have adapters machined, but I think Crazy Coolers now offers a kit based on my design. Yes the wheels are racing kart wheels/tires.

    Building a car is not for everyone. For Some of us it’s the love for the car. I’ll never get rid of mine for a hc. It means to much to me. But if you don’t have attachment to the car dump it now before you get to deep. it will never be a hellcat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Torque on the cradle bolts is 133 ft-lbs. Some info on swapping out the diff can be found here: http://www.challengertalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=617737 What specifically would you like to know? Sent from my SM-S975L using Tapatalk

    It’s funny, someone I know was talking to me about how they heard a hc was running hi 8’s. I said “ that’s top cat”. It went over his head. But for me, it brought back a memory of John at Vmp snapping an axle. I’m happy topcat is still getting out. congrats!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Josh and Tout/Top Cat sure made history with #1 "Helluva" Hellcat ride to Reaching the Goal !! Tout/Top Cat entrusted Josh to continue on for him with the R&D and T&T just as if he was alive. I am very proud of Josh for always working hard to gain the knowledge and putting his maximum effort to keep a promise to John and Blast his car into the 8's! Well Done Josh!!!! Linda TopCat Dodge Challenger Hellcat Runs 8s | RacePages DigitalThe forthcoming Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has certainly garnered a significant amount of attention with its 9-second time slip from the factory. However, it is the Hellcat that has been carrying the Challenger SRT brand into the forefront of the street performance market and HHP Racing has been on the cutting edge of it for nearly a decade. As the drag racing season is coming to a close in most parts of the country, Josh Schwartz snuck out to Maryland International Raceway one last time with Top Cat, a 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat. Armed with a nitrous bottle to compliment the HHP/BES Gen III Hemi, Schwartz knocked off an 8.883 at 154.99 mph in the 4,500-pound street car, besting the old record of 8.913 turned in by the Epling Garage’s Challenger.That time slip marks the Top Cat as the top of the Hellcat heap and also earned them the first 8-second equipped Challenger with an A8 factory automatic transmission. It is also a tribute to John Toutkoushian, who passed away in 2016, and his wife, Linda, lets HHP Racing carry-on his legacy with the TopCat. The pathway to the 8s was a well-laid plan crafted through extensive experience on thousands of Gen III Hemi-equipped Dodge vehicles that HHP is known for building.The heads and blower took a vacation at BES Racing where Schwartz collaborated with the engine shop on specific upgrades and changes to the 6.2L Hemi. The factory cylinder heads and factory supercharger snout were ported by BES Racing to keep air, fuel, and spent gases moving through the engine efficiently. A camshaft is the gatekeeper for the air going in and out of the cylinders and Schwartz shared his extensive knowledge on the Gen III Hemi engine with BES Racing in order to create a unique camshaft profile. The short-block is 100% stock as it came from Dodge, a testament to the factory’s commitment to excellence in the supercharged Hemi platform.The factory-supplied 2.4L twin-screw supercharger is turned harder with a 2.65-inch upper pulley and an ATI Performance Products Overdrive damper to increase boost pressure to 20 psi. American Racing Headers provided the entire exhaust system from the long-tube headers back to the tailpipes. All told, the TopCat cranks out 980 rwhp on the company’s in-house chassis dyno and Schwartz worked with Hemi Tuner Performance to get the engine calibration spot on with the VP Racing Fuels Q16 race fuel. Schwartz and Hemi Tuner Performance worked exclusively with DiabloSport CMR software in order to get the 1,000-plus hp combination to run smoothly and to have the transmission shift perfectly. On track, Schwartz admits to adding in a small shot of nitrous from a Nitrous Outlet plate system, however, the team hasn’t run it on the chassis dyno.Making horsepower is one thing, applying it to the drag strip is another and HHP Racing has extensive experience in that regard. In order to get the 4,500-pound street machine hurling down the track in sub-9 second fashion, the Mickey Thompson ET Radial Pro 275 tires are stuck to the ground thanks to help from HHP/Santhuff shocks and struts with a fortified IRS setup. Southern Hot Rod was tapped to build the A8 eight-speed automatic transmission and Pro Torque is responsible for the torque converter. The transmission and suspension help apply the enormous power properly and the result has been a best of a 1.369 sixty-foot time, an impressive feat considering the high race weight with driver.As a tribute to John Toutkoushian who’s passion ran deep for the Challenger platform, Schwartz said this couldn’t have been possible without Linda Toutkoushian, John’s wife. She is the owner of Top Cat and the driving force in continuing the go-fast tradition.

    SRT Brembo install on RT

    Check Cleveland Pick-A-Part, that's who I bought my brembos from. They normally have everything needed (spindles and knuckles) for less than $1500.

    OBTW - if you can find the Daytona rear caliper bracket you can put the big rotors on the rear. Also, I got dimpled and slotted rotors for all 4 corners, with pads and free shipping from Brake Perfomance for around $400 back when it did my brake upgrade. Sent via Tapatalk

    I believe they have run 1.6's and other than DR's and a tune (on one) both cars are basically stock.

    Arrington

    After building engines for the last 23 years under the Arrington name, I will be building engines for Better Built Performance in Rocky Mt. Va. We will be using the machines purchased from Arringtons along with news lifts, chassis dyno, and a first class facility to continue producing top notch builds. Several of Arringtons best will be working together to make BetterBuilt the place to go for hemi performance.

    JJ i get it.. i have had my engine out 3 times. bad piston rings. had to spend another 1000 dollars on that plus other parts i didn't want to get.. then the last go around the valve seals got beat up and had to have that addressed. pulled the heads ect.. another 600 hear 500 there.. trust me. I GET IT. at least you don't have to do the work and someone else is. for that you should feel lucky.. but either way i understand. just hope that they find the issues and will get you back on the road.

    JJ some folks build their cars over a year or two, you indeed are very much like me and want almost instant satisfaction. When it is finally done and works like it is supposed to you will forget all about these issues.

    Looks like my hubs posted pics of our set up before you made your selection, though we have replaced all the Billetech pieces with black which looks way better, and our motor is slightly larger so our hp and tq are different, but glad to see your build progressing to the point you can enjoy it now! I just had to give you a hard time about the black car comment

    Any hot rodder will tell you, there's more to a successful ride than just the engine. It takes a well-matched package of related mechanical components to ensure the power gets to the tarmac over and over again.

    6 Speed Top Stick

    I don't feel it does either anybody who has driving one of these 6 speed cars and understands the difficulties we have with them knows that a liberty sequential transmission does really have to overcome the same obstacles. But yes that hellcat is fast !
