    Just curious to know if Dodge solved this issue with the Challenger Hellcat. Installed an aftermarket kit on my '14 392/6 speed to solve this issue. Thanks.

    If the streets would ever clear, I could a get some miles on mine to find out... We just had another 12" of snow fall last night...

    Does it have anything to do with the traction control not totally disengaging unless you press and hold it down for 10 seconds? I am not having wheel hop issues, but a few were that had trouble with Track Mode. Apparently, the traction control does not fully shut off unless you hold it down. The baby sucks down and scoots, more problems with wheel spin. need bigger tires.:D

    Well, I am not going to say absolutely not because I haven't been able to get on the track yet, but I haven't had it happen anytime while screwing around on the streets here. Does it occur at certain RPMs?

    A company named hopnot has a fix if you are keeping it.
    Tammie, Am I hearing that it plants good when you release the clutch into second gear? Sorry for your loss yesterday. If that rookie corner gets there one second later, we are talking about how the Pats defense let them down!

    Tammie, Would happen with a hard launch and shifting to second at 5000 rpm or above.

    I have been working on my launch to avoid wheel spin and I have hit 5000 rpms into 2nd without wheel hop, but I may not be hitting it as hard as you are talking about.

    For some reason I thought I remembered different tire compounds being worse than others... I will be buying the MT drag radials in a month or so. I really want to get about 500 miles of stop and go driving on that clutch before really hammering on it.
