New SRT! Quick question

So I picked up my new SRT about a week and a half ago. I traded in my 2012 5.7 overland and could not be happier. This beast is blinding fast, handles incredibly when set in track mode and not to mention looks amazing. Man this truck turns a lot of heads!!

As an FYI my first use of launch control gave me a time 4.6 0-60 with only 738 miles on it. Not to mention it was about 86 degrees and very humid. I can't wait to see what this this does when it cools off a bit.

So quick question for you other SRT owners, does anyone notice any play / movement in the seat under moderate to heavy breaking. I can feel the back of my seat move forward a bit. I am not sure if this is a safety feature, but it doesn't seem right.

I will post more pics as soon as I have a chance, but this is what I have so far. The billet silver looks amazing with the split 5 spoke.

Yes I have noticed that a few times. I didn't think it felt right either.

Re: New SRT! Quick question

I've noticed this during braking/turning at times. I think it is something in there with regards to the ventilation for the seat...like maybe the hose/whatever is loose.

Re: New SRT! Quick question

Thanks guys. I am going to bring it in for an oil change and I'll have them check it out. I'll let you know what the dealership says.

Re: New SRT! Quick question

Just to clarify mine, the seat isn't loose. The seat itself doesn't move at all, but it *feels* like something inside the back does move. Just gives me a bump to say "Hello" occasionally.

I need to shoot a PM over to Milous to see if he has any exploded diagrams on the seats. As stated, I think mine is something probably related to the ventilation system in the back of the seat. Not sure I want the dealer to tear the seat apart to check though...

Re: New SRT! Quick question

NO movement...very quick de-cel moments on my recent trip (semi's drifting into my lane on a closed bridge) but did not notice any seat movement. I even checked/felt for said movement on stop and go thru hills and canyons ZIP....get yours checked at dealer
