Drag Race: Corvette Battles Corvette, 900 WHP Hellcat and a Boosted Honda

By -

Hellcat turns heckkitten when confronted with glorious LS7 power.

This highway roll race action comes to us from the KFCOrBust YouTube channel. If that name sounds familiar, it should, as we have covered their channel before. Like, a lot. It also helps that KFCOrBust is an LS1tech forum member who posts about their adventures in the Kill Stories sub-forum. This particular video features a pair of C6 Corvette Z06s participating in a few high-speed highway runs. While these aren’t drag races by the traditional, quarter-mile sense, this video offers a series of great racing action with LS power.

Corvette Z06 Highway Duel

The Competitors

This video features five different performance cars in action on and unknown stretch of highway, including a two C6Zs, a Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, a Cadillac CTS-V and a Honda S2000. We don’t have any details on the Caddy, but we know that both ‘Vettes have head work, aftermarket camshafts and intake upgrades, while the Honda is turbocharged and the Hellcat is built to the tune of 900 wheel horsepower.

The Action

The first two races in the video above show the two Z06s going head-to-head. In each of those runs, the black C6 slowly inches away from the silver C6, taking narrow wins in both races.

Next, the Hellcat Charger soundly pummels the Cadillac CTS-V before taking on the silver Corvette. After the Z06 gets out to a small lead, the Charger tries to reel him in, but when the Vette driver lifts, he is still clearly ahead of the big Dodge. We don’t see the Hellcat run the black Z06, but considering that the black C6 beat the silver C6 and the silver C6 beat the Charger, it seems likely that the black LS7-powered sports car would have beaten the supercharged Mopar even worse.

Finally, the “bonus clip” showcases the silver C6 Corvette Z06 against a turbocharged S2000. We don’t know what all is done to the little Honda, but it must be making some serious power to hand the ‘Vette such a horrendous beating.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
