How Is The Challenger SRT Super Stock Different From A Demon Or A Redeye?

What Is The Difference?

We have been getting a lot of questions regarding the 2020/2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. The newest drag racing package from Dodge//SRT has a lot of people wondering, what is the true difference between it and the limited edition 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. So we thought we would take a more in-depth look at the true difference between the Super Stock, the standard Redeye Widebody, and the Demon.

The Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock is powered by the same supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® high-output V8 that powers the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. However, in Super Stock form the powertrain was recalibrated for an additional 10 horsepower for a total of 807 horsepower (just 1 horsepower shy of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon’s 808 horsepower without high-octane fuel). So basically, its the same setting as the Demon without the optional High Octane mode from the Demon crate.

  • Lightweight 18-inch x 11-inch Demon wheels in a Low Gloss Granite finish, riding on the same sticky 315/40R18 Nitto NT05R drag radials as the Demon
  • Like the Demon, it features all-aluminum Brembo four-piston brake calipers and 14.2-inch vented rotors
  • Just like the Demon, it features a performance-tuned asymmetrical limited-slip differential with a 3.09 final drive ratio
  • Other Demon features include Line Lock, Launch Control, Power Chiller, Race Cooldown, and Torque Reserve

  • It does not have the Demon’s Transbrake (we have run both the Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 and SRT Demon, both cars performed faster without the use of it).
  • The SRT Super Stock does not have a “Drag Mode” setting, instead, it has a “Race Mode”.
