Is the RE & Demon the same or do they differ?
Same . The factory demon driveshaft ends on AA . The redeye has the same numbers but ends in AB .

Curious how much it weighs.
So before you install it you need to weigh it for me.


Please.

Actually you need to have Jim try it first to find out if it’s breakable.

Wow. Pretty heavy.
Demon driveshaft = 33 lbs 12oz
CCI Driveshaft = 21 lbs 12 oz.

But to me worth the extra weight . My vibration is finally GONE and the car is smooth as glass up to 225 KPH(139 MPH ). I am really happy with the outcome.

A big shout out to @oilburner for letting me use his hoist to install my new driveshaft today. It made it definitely easier to do. I`m not going to bore you with pictures as it has been done many times. I was a smooth install and I got to fix an exhaust leak and a missing nut on the starter heat shield. .

Also a big shout out to @motorheadmike for talking some sense in to me about the while driveshaft debacle . When installing the demon/redeye 2 piece driveshaft i noticed the the front section from the transmission to the hanger bearing it has 1 angle and the rear section from the hanger bearing to the differential has a different angle. Add that to the length of the 1 piece no wonder it vibrates . I personally have nothing but bad luck with 1 piece driveshafts on the late model challengers. I have tried multiple manufactures and multiple materials. There may be a weight penalty but worth it for me.

I did a test yesterday. I brought up the rpms a little higher than normal. Ok more than a little. LOL
Guess what...I felt the vibration I was having at the top end at times. Poop

its a much higher frequency vibration than lets say a tire out of balance. almost a buzz like vibration.
the faster you go the worst it gets like Hpindy said.

Mine was never that bad, but started having other issues after 12 launches or so.

Not everyone has issues with their driveshaft. Unfortunately I did . Like I said between 2 cars I tried 5 different driveshafts from 3 different companies and had bad luck with every ones of them .
Maybe my cars are junk

No only cartoon colors at the moment.

A large number of cartoons are about super heroes. I think purple is a good super hero color. :p

Hopeful the charger redeye has this beef shaft. Looks like it’s listed in parts, but I’ll wait for some results on a tire and 900+ wheel before I look at it.
