    talk to speedlogix and upgrade your rear suspension. The MOD parts speedlogix are selling, and I am in the process of installing, are far superior to the factory parts.

    Nope, I am lowering the HC so I used that as an opportunity to upgrade front/rear bushings, control arms, linkage, front rear sway bars, sway bar end links, probably a few other pieces in there. Speedlogix sells it as a kit for the 2015 Hellcat. Call them they will take care of you. I can tell you from looking at the OEM part versus aftermarket that the parts are night and day reference strength and weight.

    careful with the hop......std challengers have it as well, but with the Hellcat power you will tear up the car.

    I installed the Speedlogix rear lower trailing arms which helped a lot but I still have some wheel hop. I have on order now the Speedlogix rear upper control arms which should pretty much eliminate it. The wheel hop on our cars is usually caused by the soft weak bushings.

    The upgraded parts from Billet are far superior from the OEM. I wish I had the picture of the original stamped piece versus the machined piece that is twice as thick and half the weight. Not to mention the urethane bushings....

    Why are the arms bolted together rather than 1-piece? Seems like it would be adding weight and reducing strength.

    What exactly do these new arms do differently that helps prevent wheel hop?

    Just curious!

    i have an A8....i ''think'' ive felt it once on the street.....at the strip i have never felt it

    i havent heard much about it on the HC...i know it was talked about a lot in 2011+ 392's M6's.....i never experienced it with my 2011 A5.....i have also never experienced it with my 2013 GT500 M6....i know someone with a modern GTO who says its horrible for him at the track

    are you guys talking about M6's? what are your 0-60's (curious if your getting stronger times and its causing this issue)--im at 3.4 on the track and 3.5-3.6 on the street

    My A8 has done it several times on the street. It's done it with the factory summer tires as well as my DRs. Best 0-60 is 3.5 (with DRs) for me.
