My thoughts exactly, watch the beginning of the vid, he works to get the burnout going, once he has it going the vehicles attitude shows no signs of fighting it like at first.

It sounds like it shifted into 2nd actually. I wonder if he did this manually in Track mode - start with brakes on to get it going and then let them off and run with it. Brake stand.. Maybe it will work? (Or maybe he has some crazy custom ECM or maybe he pulled some fuse?)

Re: AWESOME new Videos of the NEW SRT8's 2012 Jeep SRT8

Did anyone notice the brake lights be on thru the video?
Obviously a brake stand, software mod. probably not, but I can think of better ways to burn rubber......

Re: AWESOME new Videos of the NEW SRT8's 2012 Jeep SRT8

Yeah it looks like the brakes stay on the whole time. I wonder if this is just how the ECM works or if this is a mod to it. I say that because front wheels continue to show no power. I would be surprised if in a braking situation Jeep removes power to the front wheels, but perhaps I'm wrong and that is how this would work (stock with no software mods).. ??

Re: AWESOME new Videos of the NEW SRT8's 2012 Jeep SRT8

Did anyone read the comments by the guy who filmed it? The SRT engineers decided to goof off a bit and they made an adjustment with some "Special" Software. This is not and will be something you can do by turning the dial to TRACK and touch the brakes.

Brian- That is what my thoughts were. You can see him at the beginning jam the brakes then after that the whole time he is just feathering and burning. Sounds insane doing it too. The way our ESP should have been from the start.
