charger hellcat explodes on dyno

Last Call: A bit too much of that Dyno MIGHT!

Someone commented on the below video that at least the vehicle is already on a trailer. And that’s both hilarious… and sad. Watch this Charger Hellcat go kablammo on the old dyno.

    Hopefully the dyno run wasn’t trying to measure the effectiveness of whatever modification just voided the warranty.

      Something something Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act something something “its factory” something something FCA quality….

    Well, he either found a weak point that needed fixing anyway or stressed his drivetrain beyond anything it would have otherwise seen for the sake of curiosity. Either way, I can’t feel sorry for the owner, such is the cost of this hobby.

    Ouch. Are Hellcats known to fail? Not exactly a standard engine, pluss, it’s a Chrysler. In theory, I can answer my own question.

      The Hellcat is fine, it’s the transmission that’s spilled its guts. Factory equipment on the Charger Hellcat should be a ZF 8HP90, which has a pretty good reputation otherwise.

      Amazingly Chrysler offers a warranty for the Hellcat engine for 5 years or 60,000 miles. This surprised me as in the days of my youth when I taught how be a street racer, the factory warranty on the 426 Hemi was “running when you start the engine the first time at the dealership”. I guess in these modern times of computer controlled timing and soft-rev-limiters, it’s a lot harder to blow up your engine than it used to be. Of course a quick glance at the internet shows that you can buy plenty of ways to void your Hellcat warranty.
