Did you get an aftermarket clutch installed? They will sometimes rattle a little at idle. If not, take it back to your installer so they can hear it. Maybe cam vibration shook something loose.

Kudos for Dodge on a purposely built, street legal drag car but I still enjoy a more well rounded vehicle, works well on street, strip and road course.
