A whiteboard and the TI-84 calculator or the drag strip and two Dodge vehicles with SRT badges? Yeah, we thought so, for that reason we will spare you the drawn out Engineering Explained video and answer this question the manual way.
So what is the problem on hand? Essentially, The Fast Lane Car wants to know which is better in the drag race, hp or number of contact patches? Of course, that’s the relative question.
You could have the all-wheel drive car with 100 hp and it will get smoked by the Camaro ZL1. When hp on both vehicles is fairly even, usually the all-wheel drive car wins.
Within the Dodge family, a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is a four-wheel drive machine of choice and it makes the impressive 475 hp from the 6.4-liter pushrod V8.
On the other hand, we already know this Hellcat makes 707 hp from the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 as if it were written on a back of our eyelids, and power is going to two tires at the rear that struggle to maintain grip. And who wins between the two Dodge siblings?
