Re: SRT8s running at a road course.....

Just spent the day at Thunderbolt @NJMP test tuning my race car for an upcoming race and I was able to get permission to do one session in the SRT8.

Well, this time I drove it in track mode with the traction control completely turned off (by holding the ESP button down for 5 sec. while in track mode till it beeps)......

It is a totally different beast with the TC completely off, it will drift, oversteer and behave like a sports car......utterly unbelievable......

Now I am really impressed with the truck...... HOLY COW.......

If I find the video footage I will post it in case anyone is interested......

Re: SRT8s running at a road course.....

I will load it up in a few minutes Scott, unfortunately the green Challenger SRT I talked to you about didn't want to play, I guess the guy bought the car only for glamour shots at the track...... go figure..... or maybe he was afraid of the truck.....

And famous last words " I won't be tracking this truck....Just wanted to try it out!" LOL...

Re: SRT8s running at a road course.....

Well, I wanted to try it with TC completely off, and see if it really shut off like you said it would........and it did.......

But I promise, now it is only going to be used as my tow vehicle......

BTW, it is uploading as we speak, but you know how slow youTube is......
