Ill try to make the quick, as I cant really find a definite answer. I have a 2016 V3 (obviously) that should be in the 900+ rwhp club. I want to know what the weak link will be if I happen to take it to the track and launch it hard. I know the trans is going to need built at some point, but what will break if I don't change anything else? I'm assuming a driveshaft. How are the stock axles? Will the actual rear end handle power? Any and all recommendations and advise is greatly appreciated. Id rather spend the money now, then potentially ruin a fun day of racing!

Yes I’m sorry!! If I happen to take it drag racing. Most of my fun, probably 99% of it would be roll racing with buddies. I obviously would like to see what it runs one day. I have a drag pack and it has a Circle D converter also. Just looking for the weak links in hopes I can enjoy my first outing.

I don't recall my buddy @Dr.Salt with his Full Bolt On running into the 9s, remarking about weak links.

That's impressive if everything in the drivetrain is fully stock and capable of running in the nines on a consistent basis and not breaking.

Driveshaft/Transmission/Half Axles should keep you safe. Stock rear ends apparently hold up. This was the answer I got when asking the same question on the v3 facebook group from the guys at 1k+ at the wheels.
