Also one of the things I'm not in favor of which is modifying a vehicle into something it wasn't intended to be.I feel like a Hellcat engine is the last thing a car with frame weld issues needs lol. I know the problem seems to have affected a small number of models, but this chassis wasn't built to support this kind of powerplant.
The Ford GT wasn't made for straight line performance anyways, although it does do some impressive 1/4 mile runs. Trackhawk next to a GT-R is more interesting IMO.There is no stopping tuning shops from trying to produce the unconceivable. There are tunes that Hennessey has produced for the Trackhawk that allow it to outdrag a Ford GT lol.
they were powerful in former times. I'm not sure that modern engines are that reliable and can easily double their stock horsepowerWhile it may not have been designed specially for the drag strip, that's expected of a car that costs $450k. Many have come to realize that the supercar is actually more powerful than advertised.
