New Carbon Fiber Driveshaft for Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcats
QA1 now offers its award-winning REV™ Series carbon fiber driveshafts for 2015-2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcats. Certified to the SFI 43.1 specification, these driveshafts are wound in-house for built-in strength and high speed capability while still providing weight savings over stock.
Rated for vehicles with up to 1500 HP with a max torque of 1000 lb*ft, these one-piece bolt-on driveshafts were designed to optimize strength and performance. A new version of QA1’s 3M™ Matrix Resin was designed specifically for high temperature applications and ensures ultimate torque capacity under the most extreme conditions. A high-strength structural adhesive bonds the tube to the CNC machined forged tube yokes using a proprietary 11-step bonding procedure, ensuring a more precise balance while providing increased assembly strength. Featuring a flange yoke rear attachment and a high speed CV joint on the front with a high speed sealing boot and high temp grease, the driveshafts also use a Spicer Life Series 1350 U-Joint, which provides durability and high torque capacity and is sealed for maximum strength and no maintenance.
In addition to being stronger than steel and aluminum, QA1 REV™ Series driveshafts for Hellcats are lighter as well. At just 24 lbs., they provide 27% weight savings over the factory two-piece driveshafts. The strength and weight savings together provide extended transmission and differential life, quicker acceleration and more power to the ground.
Carbon fiber also provides dramatic safety benefits, especially for racing. Many people have seen the damage that a steel or aluminum driveshaft can do to a racecar. In the unlikely event of a failure, a QA1 carbon fiber driveshaft splinters, so you don’t have to worry about it coming up through the floor board and seriously hurting you or your car.
Extensively tested before, during and after production to ensure the highest quality, all QA1 driveshafts are proudly made in-house in QA1’s Lakeville, Minnesota facility. QA1 also offers REV™ Series carbon fiber driveshafts in custom options in a variety of configurations. Visit the How to Order a Custom Driveshaft page for a custom order form.
