8 DIY Project Cars Faster than a Hellcat

Thanks to Omaze for sponsoring today's episode! You could win a 2018 DODGE DEMON and $20,000 cash through Omaze! ENTER:
Dodge’s Hellcat powered lineup has set the standard for straight line speed. But what if you want to go faster than a Hellcat… without paying the big bucks for Hellcat? We came up with 7 theoretical project cars that we think could smoke a Hellcat Challenger in the quarter mile, and they’re all under $15k. We’re not saying they’re GREAT cars… we’re just saying they’d beat a Hellcat. Probably. This is the D-List!
Thank you to Diymike for sharing his Civic footage with us! Link to his channel:

    Btw we saw that another channel posted a similar video this week, but before anyone asks, it’s actually because James hacked into their server and stole the idea along with their Runescape gold Just kidding, we usually shoot our videos at least 6 weeks in advance and filmed this all the way back in December. What would your DIY Hellcat Beater be?

      My 94 short bed single cab F150 with a 351 stroked out to a 427 and twin turbos... that would blow the doors off most anything on the road and still have money left over from the $15k budget... but i had also picked up my 94 for $450

    You're not putting a busa engine in a geo for 15k... Materials alone probably, if you can everything yourself. And I mean everything, suspension, driveshafts, some type of axle to drive it. Cause front wheel drive ain't gonna do it, if that's what you were somehow thinking. This is definitely somebody who knows fuckall about really building a car, just using weight and horsepower to bench race a hellcat...

    I just parked next to an old geo metro earlier today. At a dollar general. Everyone hates them until gas is back up to over $4 a gallon then you can't find them anywhere, and mopeds are at least twice what they normally cost. It's like xbox or ps5 right now. Supply and demand sucks unless you're the supplier.

    Swap the Geo Metro with a supercharger’d series 2 3800 that’s already mated to a 4T60HD transmission and throw it in the back instead of the front for roughly $5,000 and 225ish HP

    *Porsche 918 with an evo motor, bigger turbo, bigger injectors, suspension upgrades (shocks, rims and tires) it's mid engine also but called "the poor man's porsche" ALSO an triumph TR7 with a boosted LS in it would do the trick, a mini cooper with a turbski on a LS 4.7L or a Honda S2000 with a super charged accord V6 in it or for that matter an MR2 with a 2JZ in it maxed out with a huge turbo or two those last ones might come in a little over budget but the others should still be well within range. also a Cadillac CTS swapped with an LS3 Would also do the trick. LOTS of options if you're brave enough to try*

    The civic that beat that hellcat makes over 600 hp its turbo and is built. A 400hp civic will not go 10's. And as far as the s10 goes.. why waste your time?? Itd be cheaper to swap a iron block ls in it and turbo it. It amazes me at the bullshit this show comes up with.
