Chevy Working On ZL1-Based Cobra Jet/Drag Pak Fighter For The Straight Strip?

2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1Gallery

Lately the talk has been all about how Ford would soon be building a new GT500 to take on the raging 580-horsepower Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, but the tables may have turned: reports are now emerging that Chevy is aiming to take the factory-built drag racing fight to Ford and Dodge.

Dodge has offered its Challenger Drag Pak, a heavily modified production car built for several stock-esque divisions of drag racing, for years now. Likewise, Ford Racing has put together a Mustang Cobra Jet package for the same purpose.

Chevy's entry is said to be ZL1-based, according to LSXTV, and may get the title of Stock Eliminator, after one of the classes it'll likely be eligible to compete in. So far there aren't any details on the package, either performance or otherwise, so keep your eyes peeled for more to come soon. One thing we do know, however: having all three of the American muscle manufacturers in the game will only benefit the competitors.~> 4-Sure '
* I'm look'in 4ward 2 seeing which one of the Top 3 is going to be the Winner

2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 spy shots

<!-- social -->Share This Page
[COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]Muscle [COLOR=blue !important]car[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] fans, hang onto your hats. We just received confirmation from a source close to the Mustang project--one we trust--that the Mustang GT500 won't be going twin-turbo any time soon--it'll stick with a supercharger. Better yet, the 2014 GT500 is due in early 2013 with even more power than the current 550-horse beast to better fight [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]Chevy's [COLOR=blue !important]Camaro[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] ZL1. After that, we'll get a redesigned Mustang in 2014. A lot of this information has been cast about as rumor or speculation, but this one source ties it all together and confirms it.

The twin-turbo versus supercharger debate for the next GT500 has been raging on blogs, in magazines, and through fan forums for more than a year now. The weight of the evidence has largely rested with the no-turbo camp, but for some reason, the rumor just won't die. It can now be laid to rest.

The more tantalizing bit of information relates to the upcoming 2014 GT500. Due in early 2013, it will get a significant upgrade in power to fight the Camaro ZL1. That also serves as a sort of back-door confirmation that the ZL1 will debut with more power than the current 550-[COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]horsepower[/COLOR][/COLOR] GT500, hinting that the 570-horsepower rumors have some merit.

When it arrives in early 2013, however, the next GT500 won't get more than a superficial redesign. The full redesign for the Mustang line won't arrive until sometime in 2014 for the 2015 model year. What it will entail, or what can be expected in terms of weight, [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]performance[/COLOR][/COLOR], size, or styling, we don't yet know.

We will keep our ears to the ground and our sources close, however, to bring you the latest word from inside the Blue Oval as the next Mustang takes shape.

Viper V-10 Powered 2011 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak Revealed

2011 Dodge Challenger V-10 Drag Pak

It's hard to beat American [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]muscle[/color][/color] for hauling tail in a straight line, and [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]Mopar's[/color][/color] Drag Pak for the Dodge Challenger is among the best out-of-the-box Stock Eliminator/Super Stock configurations you can buy. For 2011, the deal gets even better: Viper V-10 power for just $85,512.
Like previous Drag Pak Challengers, the 2011 V-10 model gets a solid rear axle with upgraded gears, competition fuel system with fuel cell, complete interior, gauge package, plus a two-speed race transmission. What's new is the 512 cubic-inch (8.4-liter) V-10 engine borrowed from the now-defunct Viper under the hood.

There are only three available options: a Competition Package that includes an eight-point roll , six-point safety harness and mesh window net; a Mopar logo body wrap; and a choice of body paint colors.

Only 70 of the 2011 Drag Pak Challengers will be built, and with rather low pricing for a race-ready car, they won't likely last long. Production starts early 2011, but orders are open now at Mopar.com.
