If you own a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, particularly a modified one and enjoy taking it to the race track, this brand new product from QA1 might be just what you need! We all know Dodge and SRT did an absolutely phenomenal job with the Hellcats; they hit the ball right out of the park. The cars are pretty much bullet proof for the most part with one pretty important exception; the driveshaft. One cruise through YouTube and you’ll find plenty of videos of Hellcat owners literally blowing up their driveshaft into a million pieces at the track.
QA1 is hoping to solve that problem with their brand new one-piece bolt-in REV Series carbon fiber driveshafts. Made in the USA, these wicked driveshafts are designed and built with torture and punishment totally in mind. Not only are they optimized for strength and performance but they are also lighter than the factory units with a weight of 24 pounds. That means they are 27% lighter than the stock two-piece driveshafts!
Built with high temperature 3M Matrix Resin, they are rated for up to 1500 horsepower and 1000 ft-lbs of torque and are safer and stronger than steel or aluminum pieces. The strength and weight savings together provide extended transmission and differential life, quicker acceleration, and more power to the ground. These REV series driveshafts are 3.3” in diameter so they provide better clearance for exhaust systems. They are also precision balanced in-house at QA1’s Lakeville, Minnesota facility without the use of cheap glued-on weights, certified to SFI 43.1 specifications and are harmonic tested to ensure they meet NVH requirements.
Available for both the A8 eight-speed automatic and Tremec six speed manual configurations, these driveshafts have a MSRP of $1,649.99 to $1,734.99 USD depending on your application. They are definitely worth the investment for total piece of mind when you take your car to the track.
