The fastest time ever run at Pikes Peak is 7:57. That's way too long. If we removed all the curves, making a straight line from top to bottom, how quickly could a Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye reach the top?

ProTips
Slope of 6.4%
Redeye top speed 203 mph
A stock Redeye has a peak acceleration of over 1g. Assume this Redeye will accelerate at an average of .091 g (2.93 ft/s2)
The 12.42 mile long Pike's Peak course has over 156 turns
What you might need:
A calculator
The internet (unit conversions)
A smart friend
Some kinematic equations:
d=v^2/2a
t=v_f/a
t=d_remaining/v_f
