    When getting the hellcat dyno'd tonight the best out of 4 attempts was 450 hp for some odd reason. Traction control was turned off, but abs was kicking in and wouldnt let the hellcat max out. Does anybody with dyno experience or hellcat dyno experience know how to get the abs system to not interfere? Might be a dumb question, but it's the first time i've ever had a vehicle dyno'd. Everytime you could smell the brakes.

    TC is still somewhat active in all modes, in track mode hold in the traction control button for ten seconds to fully turn it off

    I wonder if what he thinks is abs, is actually the traction control turning on...450 is really low numbers

    Traction control stability control and abs all work in conjunction and share sensors

    If you use the calculators it does. From what I've read dyno's can vary or lie if test is done wrong which certainly is the case here

    Even with driver error, mph should be relatively consistent... driver will effect the ET more than MPH in most cases..and mph is a direct reflection of what kind of power the car is making.

    I agree but lets say the dyno says 725/660 but the driver can't grab traction on the road, track he's still in the same boat. Practice time at the track is the best and when I get mine Lapeer will see plenty of me:D
