We’ve been featuring various videos from the JMC Rides YouTube channel as John has a great knack of keeping us entertained with his various C8 Corvette adventures. In this latest video, his 2020 Corvette is going up against a Dodge Demon with at least 808 hp, although that horsepower number is suspect based on the car’s mods.
John sets up the video with a bit of backstory about wanting to race a stock Dodge Demon. He eventually was contacted by an owner who appeared set to go, but then he went a month without hearing from him. Suddenly his phone rings again and the Dodge owner is now ready to go. Just one problem though as John hears the Mopar pull into the meeting spot, he notices right off that the car isn’t stock. Turns out it was cat-less and was wearing Mickey Thompson street racing slicks and skinny tires on the front. With no check engine light on the car, John is sure the car has also been tuned.
Following the quick drive to Mexico, the two cars square off against each other. After being left on a starting line by the mid-engine Corvette in the first race, the Dodge driver claims he couldn’t hear the Corvette’s horn over his loud exhaust, so the Demon will be sounding the horn to start the action.
The next two races are pretty much carbon copies of each other, and in both cases, the C8 Corvette gets the jump on the Demon and never looks back.
Following the races, John goes to his laptop and deconstructs the dig races. The Dodge owner did a burnout before all three races but it was no help on the non-prepped surface roads. At the track, John says his C8 wouldn’t have had a chance. But on the streets, it was no contest as the video shows.
