YouTuber Turns Challenger HELLCAT Widebody Into An Actual Boat

WhistlinDiesel Turns Challenger SRT HELLCAT Into A Paddle Boat...

YouTube sensation Cody Detwiler, widely known as @WhistlinDiesel, has once again captured the attention of automotive enthusiasts with his audacious exploits. If you recall his notorious 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT HELLCAT video, where he humorously outfitted the car with buggy wheels while dressed like an Amish person, you’re not alone – that video has amassed nearly 21 million views on YouTube. Detwiler is back with another attention-grabbing adventure involving a HELLCAT.

This time around, he’s equipped with a HELLCAT Widebody featuring the same distinctive rear graphics as his previous car. Embracing the notion of the Challenger’s substantial weight and nickname as a “heavy boat”, he’s transformed the HELLCAT Widebody into a makeshift paddle boat. Detwiler playfully asserts that the Challenger carries more weight than “his haters’ moms.”

Securing the HELLCAT onto a sturdy pontoon deck, the rear wheels ingeniously propel the modified vehicle onto the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Notably, this isn’t Detwiler’s first foray into aquatic car experimentation in Florida – he previously gained attention for taking a modified Chevrolet Silverado known as “Monster Max” out onto open waters. This time, the Challenger’s aquatic counterpart boasts a ship’s wheel at the front, although the exact mechanism for steering remains a puzzle.

In his quest for enhanced performance, WhistlinDiesel ingeniously affixed wooden 2x4s to the paddles, aiming to harness the HELLCAT’s 717 horsepower more effectively. However, when engaged in Track mode, the sheer power effortlessly dislodged the added 2×4 paddle extensions, sending them soaring into the air.

The video’s climax unfolds at Cleetus McFarland’s renowned “Freedom Factory,” where WhistlinDiesel tests the modified car’s abilities on the facility’s massive skidpad. In characteristic fashion, it doesn’t take long for the wheels to succumb to the punishing demands, resulting in both tire destruction and damage to the vehicle itself.

Detwiler’s latest stunt underscores his point in a playful yet emphatic manner: the Challenger SRT HELLCAT indeed lives up to its reputation as a substantial vessel.
