Does the grip stay neutral with adjustable Drivers?

Are you talking about the kind of grip as in where you place your fingers or grip as in Golf Pride/Lamkin?  I know some guys have reminders in their grips and rotate them to be functional for a strong grip.  Keep the same grip, position of the fingers, throughout the bag.  You would use to adjustability of the driver to effect start line.  So if you wanted to hit fades, you would have the face square or aimed left, aimed right for a draw.

No, I'm talking about your gripping of the club. Not the grip on the shaft. I used a Callaway FT-iq i-mix Driver. With that club I used a strong grip to reduce the fade or slice off the tee. Now I bought a Nike Machspeed Black with the Str8 system of adjustment. So my question was do I still continue with that strong grip or do I go to a neutral grip and adjust the club accordingly and square the club face at address? This sounds like a Duuu... question, but I've gotten conflicting answers to this question.

I would keep the same strong grip and see what face angle works best.  Doesn't make sense to use one grip style for the driver then switch for the rest of the set.  So experiment with the square face vs a face aimed more "closed" or aimed to the left.  If you struggle with a slice, strong grip can help reduce it and so can adjusting the face angle more to the left.  Some call this a "draw" setting, but all it does is help the face match the path.

In terms of the grip, I'm fine with a strong grip, just make sure the grip is lying in your fingers, guys can tend to have the grip too much in their palms.
