2006 Turbocharged Chevy Trailblazer aka ‘Big Booty Judy’
In This In the corner, you’ve got Cody Bose ’06 Trailblazer. That carbon-fiber hood reveals a popping The 402 Stroker or 6.6-liter V-8 is strapped with an 80ml Borg Warner Turbo and the result is 1000 horsepower. That powerful Big Block is paired with a 4L80 four-speed transmission. While this rig was originally rocking the standard 4WD, Cody wanted to know how this bad guy would fare with just the power to get to the rear wheels. All things considered, Big Booty Judy is a giant scales tips 5,000 pounds.
Don’t assume for a second that this Chevy is anything other than ordinary. Black paint may be plain jeans, but subtle modes like the Carbon Fiber Hood, Mickey Thompson ET Radial Street in the rear axle, and the skins in the front will suffice to tell you that you’re looking for something deadly. As ridiculous as it may sound, Cody says he even takes his kids to school, but with luxuries like proper chairs and heated seats, you can use things to run your school.
Here’s how the two stack up against each other
2016 Supercharged Dodge Hellcat aka ‘Christina’
In That In the corner, you get Damien Daleston’s 2016 Dodge Hellcat. Now Damien says that with the exception of a few bolt-on, this thing is fairly stock. Okay, I think he meant it Almost Stock because the thing is upgraded pulley, cold air intake, with a lightweight driveshaft, a tune and he runs on E85. Okay, only drainage stock. With all of these modes, Hellcat now pushes that 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 to 900 horsepower. It sends power to the rear wheels via an eight-speed auto. This mopper car is not light though with all these extra bolt-on parts and weight 4500 lbs.
‘Christina’ as Damien calls her her daily driver, where she takes her kids to school. He has made occasional cross-country trips, from Arizona to New York and back. He had never driven a car, and this was the first time Damien had taken his ride to the racetrack to see what it was.
Round One was your standard run-of-the-mill, 1000-foot drag to see where things stand between two cars. Due to the weak response to Hellcat, Cody traveled in a trailblazer without any problems. Although the SUV looked a lot like a wheelpin, it was able to keep most of those 1,000 ponies in the rear wheels.
For the second round, both cars started a 40 ‘roll. They hammered it over the cone, and this time the Hellcat must have been able to reduce its power, but again, it had nothing in common with the Trailblazer’s LS, which was able to come to the top by a large margin.
In a final bonus round, we see that both cars are turning one way again, the SUV is now standing, when the Mopar car was given 20 rolls, and finally, the Dodge was finally able to reach the first finish line. But, it didn’t really matter because Chevy had already been declared the overall winner.
And, with that, it was a wrap, folks. Some people on the Hunigan team could feel some donuts and it all ended in smoke. As a result of this conflict, it will never be easy for Dodge to tire on the charger vs. Chevy’s drag radials.
