    Mopar offering an 800 horsepower 8.4 liter viper motor

    Pretty impressive, who say the Americans can't build a high specific output motor?

    Mopar has introduced a new 8.4-liter V10 crate engine at SEMA.
    Specifically designed for drag racing, the engine is hand assembled and features an aluminum block, a forged steel crankshaft and a JTEC controller. Thanks to these changes, the mill develops 800 hp (597 kW / 811 PS) and 695 lb-ft (941 Nm) of torque.

    If that sounds like over kill, Mopar has also unveiled a new high-output version of the Gen III 426
    HEMIV8
    . Producing 590 hp (440 kW / 598 PS), the engine weighs 100 lbs (45 kg) less than its predecessor and has cast aluminum valve covers, billet fuel rails and a revised windage tray to "provide excellent oil dispersion."

    In related news, Dodge introduced a Challenger body-in-white which is described as an "excellent starting point for [building] a race car." Stripped of all non-essential equipment, the shell allows chassis builders to get right to work rather than spending hours removing parts from a standard production vehicle.

    Love this.

    Domestic car companies know how to cater to a demanding customer. This is something all other car companies fail at.

    They are selling an already stripped chassis? How awesome is that?
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.
