The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is the world's fastest quarter mile production car. But how does it do that? How does it hit 1.8 g's of acceleration when powered by only the rear wheels? Rear wheel drive!? Physics tells us that the maximum force a wheel can apply to the ground is equal to the normal force acting on the tire multiplied by the frictional coefficient of the tire (F=u*N). So the car needs to be able to transfer all the weight to the rear tires, and have super stick tires. This video explains how the vehicle does just that!
We're looking at a 1977 Pontiac Firebird Esprit in Buckskin Gold Paint.

Take a look at the amazing display of "27" 1970 & 1971 Hemi 'Cuda and Hemi Challenger Convertibles on display at the 2015 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals in Chicago, IL.
