Vid was weak as it was the first run and I think he didn’t realize my power level. He didn’t hit it right away but never caught up. Last run was the best plenty of room. Powershifted 3-4 and didn’t lift until redline and had a lil over a car. Pretty sure I’d have my hands full launching and rowing gears at the strip against one. Cool dude - gave him a thumbs up. They are mean looking cars with the Widebody.

I was hunted by the cat. Going to log some time at GLD soon. Have yet to see what it can do. Not going to go crazy on the tire maybe just some Toyo TQs.

I don't think they're gonna be enough tire man. I thought my ET Street R's were awesome, but even they are spinning in 2nd gear. There's a nice fresh concrete road where I do all my 2nd gear datalogs and the car hooks awesome on that road, but on other roads the traction light is flashing at me.

I realized the other day how much power advance track kills, driving my car around I got down on it a few times just keep thinking something was wrong with the car, man this thing just feels like a turd today, traction control was on lol, first thing I do is turn it off when I start the car every time, I probably wouldnít if it was a manual though I can lightly leave black marks from a 25 roll on concrete Iím first if itís warm out, I think having 28ís helps a lot

I haven't been too eager to turn the advance trac all the way off because I don't want to end up on the internet...lol

I usually just put it in sport mode and toggle the first stage of traction control off. I figure if it gets too out of hand the advance trac will save me and it did last year big time fucking around with a rocket on the highway. Did a 2nd gear pull and of course spun through, but when I hit 3rd the car got out of hand and started to go sideways. I believe having the advance trac still on saved my ass on that one!

Every now-and-then, I turn it off. It just makes the car more unpredictable at lower speed rolls. It gets better when the roads warm up. But in general, I like to keep the rear end planted as much as possible.

The first time I tried driving without it, it was quite the shocker. As others said, it pulls some power.

So many Tards try to race me at stop lights since I bought my Charger. Lol.

They’re jealous


I just ignore them. I’m getting too old to risk getting busted street racing. Lol.

^This.

I don't really get anyone that eggs me on either. It's for the best anyway. I wouldn't get into an all-out race on the streets. I like giving it the old 1-2-3, but not with someone near me.

The only time I don’t turn advanced track off is in heavy rain, it’s the first thing I do when I start the car

Especially since you have a stick car. Any time you push that clutch in and out it "upsets" the suspension.

And I don't think you can turn Advance Trac off completely like you can in the 2011-14 cars. Which is probably a good idea for manufacturers to have some assistance there.

Seeing as new cars seem to have levels or stability control you can get away with it. Some cars will allow you to drift with a pretty severe steering angle before it steps in.

And like I just posted, some will not turn the traction control all the way off.

Just saying....you're really gimping the power imo....

I'm not going to call myself the best driver but the Cobra, Supra and Evo all had that shit turned off. The Supra could get especially scary at highway speeds when you would load everything up for full boosties. I could watch the back end start to do this




And then it was basically a guess as to whether it was going to violently downshift or stay in gear and lag until it rocketshipped.

Cobra would get silly loose but was always predictable. The Evo would track straight but would dance all over the damn road lol.

In my car, with the Sport mode on, going straight I can still spin and have no power cuts. It will allow me to drift and still not cut power. But if it goes too far, it will step in, cut power, apply brakes on whichever corner needs it and so on. So I am fine with that as if it save the car/me, worth it.

I mean what is the worst that happens? I lose a pull against someone? Better than being a star in someone's Youtube video crashing. haha




also, due to my cars rear engine configuration you can't completely turn the stability management off. So I can't be a bad ass even if I wanted to.
