    Hello everybody, I just joined Hellcat.org and ordered my 2016 Challenger Hellcat last week! I should have it in March sometime. I was thinking of changing the tires to drag radials when I get the car after reading about all of the traction problems with this car. If I do so I think it will be a good idea to upgrade the stock drive shaft as I will be racing the car at the track every once in a while. Does anyone have any feedback on this and does anyone know if I replace the drive shaft if it voids any warranties? I am not looking to do any other upgrades to the car, just trying to avoid breaking the drive shaft. Thank You for your feedback!

    I have a DSS driveshaft.
    I spoke with my dealer before I installed it and he said the most it might affect is warranty on the differential.
    If a differential related problem were to occur it would be up to the regional warranty advisor to determine if he thought it was caused or helped along by the driveshaft exchange.
