    We just ran into an interesting problem that could had been worse. I would notice that my clutch would slip at high rpm launch and decided to go with a 3 plates bad BOYZZ clutch kit rated for up to 1300 lbs or torque. We came across that it had a loosed bolt from the hydraulic which it made a hole to the clutch housing and scratched it pretty bad. Check out the pictures and for 6 speed hellcats inspect ur housing if any damage. Hope my experience can be alarming and prevent an accident.

    To be clear the problem with the bolts coming apart from HRB that damaged the bell housing are all Mopar Hell Cat parts that failed not BBG's. We were made aware of this problem immediately and the speed shop replaced bell housing for safety. Point being, is exactly why I always mandate red loctite on all of our components and wire tie if your able too..

    This is why BBG's building clutch kits for the Hell Cat!

    BTW pictured is our BBG HC Billet Triple disc Bad Boy..!!

    Great install Lonnie, see you at Bakersfield Drag Strip this weekend after PRI

    Correct the problem is from Chrysler since they failed to properly tight up the bolts and I can't wait to see how Bad Boyzz clutch feels . Also for every manual transmission hellcats, check around the housing and hope it won't cause you guys an accident since Chrysler dropped the ball here.
