    Found this video while looking at Barton and Hurst shifter videos for Challengers,
    If he can run in the tens how come Hellcats won't?

    In his other videos he describes having a 3.92 gearset
    Can the hellcat receive a 3.92 gear set or is 3.7 our only option right now? has anyone swapped gears in a manual ?

    I want to pull that off myself. I have my DSS aluminum drive shaft and a Bad Boyzz twin disc on order right now. I am also ordering a mounted set of 305 Nitto 555R's next week. Will consider a tune and a pully swap as well but need to see what we get out of the DR's, DS and clutch first.

    I have a bad boyzz twin setup in the box waiting for warmer weather to instal . Hope to make a 10sec pass next spring or fall with Only the clutch and tires for mods.
    If I can't I will add power until I do....
    Best pass stock with drag radials is 11.50@123 in a 65kmh headwind on a ice cold track with no prep.
    10 second manual hellcats are coming you can BET ON IT!!!!!

    Unless your track is out of this world with its track prep, it's going to be very difficult to get the launch and 60' time required to run 10s with a drag radial on the stock 20" wheel. Slicks on 17s, or even maybe a real good DR on 18s are going to be the ticket...

    Yeah, wasn't referring to you.. I know you have a handle on it. I just see these other M6 guys talking about getting the 20" DRs... which are going to lead to disappointment for most

    The Hoosier 10X28X17 slicks on a lightweight wheel would be good. For a Hellcat, that might be the only choice. Too bad Mickey Thompson does not make an ET Street R in a 17" or 18" size with the M5 Compound. That might be ideal.

    The Hoosier DOT Drag radial in the P325/45R18 size might do it. But that is 11.2X30.2 and requires a minimum 10" wheel. Not sure how that would fit a Challenger. Most likely would not be an issue. You need a lot of sidewall to store energy on the hit.
