How Alex Taylors Dodge Challenger Lost 500 Pounds

From the November 2021 issue of Car and Driver.

Alex Taylor started drag racing at 16. Now 24, she grew up around cars at her parents' hot-rod shop in Booneville, Arkansas, and still uses it as a home base for her automotive YouTube channel, Riding with Alex Taylor. While the shop specializes in fast drag cars with a classic look—like her dad's '55 Chevy gasser and her 1968 Camaro—the Taylors are happy to take on the task of making any car quicker. They got a chance to test their skills on a modern canvas when Dodge invited Taylor to participate in a Challenger build-off competition. Dodge provided competitors with a bone-stock Challenger or Charger Hellcat to modify as they pleased. The winner would be last builder standing after a street-style drag matchup. The rules: stock-appearing body, stock engine block, and stock-appearing 2.7-liter supercharger housing. Taylor went for the Lotus approach, stripping everything down and making it as light as possible. The result was a focused build with simple electronics and big sticky tires, trimmed as close to kitten weight as a big cat can get. And yeah, she won.

"More power was the last thing on our to-do list," Taylor says. "We wanted to hit weight, because Hellcats are heavy. We just unbolted everything that could be unbolted and started cutting out what couldn't."
