Dodge Challenger Drivetrain

Your Challenger's engine makes all the power, so it usually gets all the attention when it comes to aftermarket upgrades. But it's the drivetrain that makes all that power usable. The flywheel, clutch disc, throwout bearing and pressure plate in the transmission work in unison to deliver that power to the drivetrain, which then moves it to the U-joint — it's a beautiful ballet of moving steel parts that add up to create one of the sexiest, brawniest muscle cars in American history.

Of course, with all those moving parts, your system is only as capable as its weakest part. That's why we stock an extensive range of 2008-2022 Challenger drivetrain parts.

A new driveshaft helps you drop weight, but it also will increase responsiveness and give you faster acceleration. Ours are precision-crafted to handle the Challenger's large engine; even ones that have been modded for more ponies.

If you've added an aftermarket clutch, don't forget to upgrade your flywheel, too. We carry flywheels from some of the biggest and most trusted brands in the business, so you'll find one here that complements your setup and driving style.

When you mod your ride, your stock axles might not be able to deliver all the power to the pavement, and what good is that? AmericanMuscle offers axles made from premium metal alloys that are designed to take the punishment.

The right gear will get your beast into its power band much faster, giving you quicker acceleration and a healthy dose of low-end bite. Choose from a variety of gear ratios to find the perfect option for your Challenger.

It might not come with any horsepower or torque gains, but a shift knob can give your interior a custom look. Choose from a massive range of looks including classic, modern, and even specialty — pistol grip, anyone?

The Dodge Challenger drivetrain has a pretty tough job handling the huge power this slice of Mopar muscle is capable of dishing out. Dodge is known for building some robust drivetrains, but over time, especially if you’ve upgraded the engine to deliver even more grunt, parts of the drivetrain will need replacing. Some components, such as the clutch used with a stick shift, will need to be renewed if you’ve worn out the old one or you want a beefier part ready to provide lasting durability with a high-power engine tune. If you’re planning to have your Challenger tuned for more power that you can use at the track or simply to have more fun on the road, it’s a good idea to invest in upgrading your drivetrain to handle the performance. A competition clutch pack or torque converter lets you hook it up off the line without worrying about efficiency losses or having these parts let go. If you’re replacing the clutch or other Challenger drivetrain parts, our industry-leading clutch replacement consumables and transmission oils help to make sure you get the job done right and your gears live as long as possible. We can offer upgraded drive shafts to help cope with the big torque you’ll want for the lowest quarter-mile times. Our ring gear and pinion kits let you choose the best final drive ratio for your needs. Go short for improved standing start acceleration and pull through the lower gears. Choose a longer ratio for better economy and more relaxed cruising on the highway. Performance at the track can really benefit from a lightened, balanced flywheel. You’ll get snappier shifts, losing less time through the gears. To help you enhance your shifting experience even more, we can supply aftermarket shift knobs and other shifter accessories. For ultimate grip at the back wheels, a limited-slip Challenger differential helps to ensure you get as much power through the rubber as possible.
