    Doesn't seem like I'm going to get any faster at my local track. Leaving at anything more than idle causes a smoke show. All of these were recent so weather was 80-90.. Maybe when the weather cools down I can get a little quicker.

    What are you guys running on All seasons at your local tracks? image.jpeg

    Very respectable compared to a lot of other pure stock times posted! I would be very happy with 11.3's and 11.4's or even 125mph! A 1.67 60' is super with those tires! Nice going! Seems like a high 10 is reachable with tires. Did you get a lot of rubber up in your rear wheel houses? I haven't run it yet but getting that rubber up in the sound deadening Charger wheel houses is a lot more of an issue than the smooth ones in a Challenger.

    impressive numbers for stock all season tires, times will get quicker when temps cool down but track needs to be sticky and your tires do also.
    your 60 ft times say your getting close to under 11 sec. Drag radials may be difference

    Thanks I sure hope 10s can be achieved. Possible plan for drag radials in the future. Trying to get myself to order a Solid driveshaft.... Now that's different story
    Rubber in the rear fenders is a pain in the butt. I didn't know challengers had different wheel housings

    Thanks and I sure hope so I want to try to maintain the warranty..

    Very nice run with stock car. Also, DR tires don't impact warranty. FCA sold this car running 10's using DR.

    Thanks and I was referring to the driveshaft... I'm scared that the Drags will break the stock one but also scared to install the aftermarket shaft and have to take it off everytime I go to the dealer.

    So what if it breaks the driveshaft? I still have the stock driveshaft and if it breaks it goes on a flat bed and goes to the dealer to get fixed. I doubt that it will ever break considering the fact that I now have 130 passes with drag radials.

    I have seen a stock Hellcat with summer tires do a 1.66 sixty foot using launch control. But it was maybe the ONE time out of 10 that it worked good.

    That 1.67 is awesome. How are you setting up the car? What burnout and tire pressure? What track date and time was that 1.67? In good DA I would say you would be close to a street tire record! LOL

    I'm leaning towards that FCA fixed the driveshaft issue in 2016 since I'm seeing few more cars in 10's without breaking DS. I think new DS going in 2015 that should fix that issue too.. You are setting record on stock DS and I agree that if it breaks .. put on flat bed..

    What year is your car? I always wondered what the actual cause of the shaft breakage was? Wheel hop? Or just shock form dead hooking?
    I just want to run 10.xx and be able to hook in the street a bit. I don't really go to the track that often. If I can get away with 20-30 passes on a stock shaft that will be enough to track time for me to get the car to whatever I feel it's personal best is.
    I'm afraid my 2015 shaft might take a dump on me.

    Track date was June 11 2016 it was a hot day but that pass was around 11pm so temps were in the upper 70s

    Generous burnout using the paddles up to about third gear
    Tire psi between 22-25 psi I believe
    Car actually spun at the top of Second and third.. So the et really surprised me.
    I just was imagining what it would have ran on a drag tire without the spinning...

    My car is a 16. My drive shaft has seen it all ( but not abuse) so I don't think it will break. I have done 1.549 sixty foot. If I were running on street tires I would do a good burnout like you did and go to 20 PSI. I would launch way up on the converter and then just do a progressive roll trying to feel for the available traction. Yes, making lots of runs will teach you what to do and not do.
    I think on street tires the best I have seen is 11.10

    Also I might use street or sport mode on the transmission setting if it seemed like it was spinning on the shifts. My car will spin the Drag Radials occasionally when it shifts to second so I suppose it would need a softer shift on the street tires.

    Dodge claims the Charger ran 11.0 in their 2915 Hellcat marketing information. Has anyone seen the road test?

    Hmmmm.... Makes me wonder if Dodge changed the drive shaft design for the 16s

    2016 DS was changed for sure. I'm hearing less and less broken shaft now
