Not worried about coverage on my new 1320. They purpose built it for drag racing, advertised it as such in ads and videos, etc. If they tried to deny warranty coverage after all that because I broke it drag racing at a track I'd sue their pants off. But as I said, not worried about it, even purchased additional factory coverage out to 96 months with zero deductable so I can race worry free for 8 long years. Can't beat that with a stick! Of course that means I have to leave it bone stock, but that was my plan all along anyway.

RacerX on YouTube just posted a video about this. It's titled something like "do I regret buying the Demon 170?" You should go watch it. About 3/4th of the way through the video he mentioned that a lot of Demon owners have contacted him saying that they also have had failures on their cars. Electrical issues, spark plug issues, engines blowing, rear ends failing, etc. He says that to his knowledge Dodge is doing a good job of covering these things under warranty. He himself is still waiting for a replacement engine for his car. I'm guessing it'll be a LONG time because Dodge wanted the engine shipped to Detroit for study and inspection.

That’s unfortunate if true. Although, slamming cars out during and after a strike, not overly surprising.

Why does he say he's been without his car for so long and has no idea when he will get it back?
Build drama? He is a drama queen after all lol. He showed the replacement engine sitting on the floor behind his car a few days after he took it in...
