Do I need to upgrade the D/S on my 2019 Hellcat W/B?
I know the W/B axels are upgraded..

But is the W/B Hellcat Driveshaft same as Demon?

What is BEST D/S?
Stock Demon
Aluminum
Carbon Fiber
I plan on a 800-850 RWH
Thanks guys

Oh Crap. I should have read your post close . I seen 2019 and WB so I assumed redeye ..... Regular lowly hellcats don't get the driveshaft to the best of my knowledge.

Sorry . But I hope I'm not wrong

Carbon Fiber are not good for street use as stone chips can damage them or throw them out of balance.

Personally I think the best one is the factory DS, if you're upping your horsepower you need to go aftermarket for sure but then you run into all the issues people are reporting.

I ended up going with CCI driveshaft for my challenger. Haven't found any posts regarding issues/vibrations on challengers yet

I did a CCI in my charger. New build style.

No discernable vibrations up til 160mph...but it acts like a tuning fork for the factory differential and it screams more than a liberal. Not the fault of CCI. That is ZF and a differential made on a friday at 4:30pm.

Carbon Fiber are not good for street use as stone chips can damage them or throw them out of balance.
And fiber DS are not good for drag racing because the resin breaks down due to the heat. So carbon would be my last resort.

I run the DSS solid 4" with couplers and had one issue. Made like 300+ pulls and then the front CV boot came apart and DS repaired it in 2 weeks at no cost to me.
So I am sticking with DSS.

NOTE: they vibrate some at 80 mph cruising but I can live with that. Because this DS has not broken on me nor tore up my car or injuring me. I am over 400 pulls on DSS...so proof is in the pulling :)
