Earlier this week, Dodge unwrapped a full slate of new additions to its factory-backed Direct Connection performance catalog including a Direct Connection Dodge Challenger Mopar Drag Pak Rolling Chassis for grassroots drag racers and a Dodge Challenger body-in-white kit.
The new Direct Connection Dodge Challenger Mopar Drag Pak Rolling Chassis (Part # P5160604AA) offers a foundational blueprint for National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) and National Muscle Car Association (NMCA) competitors, giving the grassroots racers that fuel the sport the tools to create their own vision of a drag race car.
The Drag Pak Rolling Chassis with 4130 chromoly-tubing and a fully TIG-welded roll cage is NHRA-certified for 7.50-second elapsed times.
The Direct Connection Drag Pak Rolling Chassis arrives already equipped with a four-link rear suspension engineered to launch hard and stay planted down the quarter-mile. Double-adjustable Drag Pak-specific tuned Bilstein coil-over shocks, Strange Engineering 9-inch rear end, Strange Pro Series II racing brakes and Weld Beadlock lightweight wheels with Mickey Thompson drag racing tires combine to provide racers a formidable quarter-mile package. Working off the Drag Pak Rolling Chassis, racers have the freedom to finish building their dream drag machine with the powertrain, driveline, and engine management system of their choice.
Also for grassroots racers, a newly available Dodge Challenger body-in-white kit (Part # P5161750AC), delivered without the roll cage, is available with a standard e-coat or with an optional choice of exterior vehicle colors for the 2023 model year.
The Direct Connection Drag Pak Rolling Chassis is available at a U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $89,999, while the Dodge Challenger body-in-white kit is offered at an MSRP of $7,995. Both are available by contacting the Direct Connection Tech hotline at (800) 998-1110.
