    I have had my new 2016 Challenger SRT8 Ivory White Tri-Coat 6 speed for a week now and I really like some of the new electronics. I had a 2011 SRT8, 6speed, and really loved driving it.

    I have noticed considerably more exhaust sound in the cabin than my 2011. I think the active exhaust may be stuck open because when I put it in "track" mode I do not notice a change. Does anyone else notice the cabin drone at low speeds in 1 thru 4th?

    I believe that any malfunction of the valve(s) would trigger a MIL.

    find a sweet spot with speed & rpm that has a lot of drone and hold it while switching between track n street.. you should hear a notable difference

    Modes won't switch with accerator pressed. you have to let off gas to get modes to change
