    Guys that have broken shafts (Johnny and the black HC in Texas, any others), have you had any more problems since replaced? Do you think the replacement shaft is stronger?

    Cool, I am going to track soon. If I have an issue, I will get one from you. Thanks!

    Wonder if Dodge has better ones in reserve?

    Still have stock DS on now and used it at the track with no problems last week! Waiting on new aluminum one piece to come in!

    Cool, good to hear. I wonder about the black one in TX that ran the 10.48?

    Thx Johnny

    Yep , you now see how much power it takes to move this big boy . I have been discussing that 10.48 run with a few others while waiting in between runs at the track , It just doesn't seem possible for the Hellcat engine to self adjust automatically and increase horsepower without a tune on 109 octane !

    4/10 th's of a second in drag racing is a lot ! I'm guessing at least a 100 HP increase to get are cars to that mark!

    I think you guys need a tank full of 109 to either prove that it works or dispel the myth. If anyone can you guys could run a 10.4 if it really works.
    A piece of advice. I know the carbon DS is a bit more $. I have read somewhere that the carbon shaft cushions the impact on the drive train. Gives the diff, gearbox and half shafts a little easier time because of the torque reaction through the carbon fibre. I hope I am making sense. Would you guys agree.
    I'm not so worried about the DS but I don't want to lunch the A8 as I am on my own over here

    So using two calculators and let's say both cars are 4300 lb
    We know Doc did 128 mph yesterday and he is damn straight, that calculates to 704 rwhp. That is going to be tough to beat, stock.

    Now let's consider the 10.48 he also showed 131 mph. The same calculators indicate that requires 754 rwhp. No flipping way! I have said that before I owned one and before some of us put the power to the street and now the tracks. Still I am still saying no flipping way, he had to be adding something sweet to that intake stream somewhere.

    How does the Carbon shaft like the heat from being tucked between the exhaust and body ? I seen a sticker on one that said avoid over 300 deg
