    Is there a bone stock Hellcat Challenger that can full throttle off the line without breaking the tires lose? If so, what size and what kind of tires? If no one can do this, why look for more HP. Harness the 707 first.

    Most recommended seems to be the MT Street ETs... Nitto's are also popular but don't seem to rate as high as the MTs for bite! Don't forget to get a drive shaft that can handle the power! DSS rated at 1000hp, lists for $899... Hope this helps!

    I was the first to break an axle. :D
    SRT requested to have it sent back,as they wanted to investigate it.
    I am told our axles are beefy. I broke mine on a cold night of about 45 degrees. My ET's were low 10's.
    There were no aftermarket axles at the time.
    My stock axles were on while running my passes into the 9's.

    Linda:)

    45 degrees, ha Linda you were making so much power, bet the D/A was very low and you stuck it good.
