    Press the SRT button, or load the Performance Pages...this will help you change suspension, traction, power, etc.

    That's probably true. You should set up your own Custom setting based on what's most comfortable for you. My Custom Drive Mode is set to Track Transmission, Sport Suspension, Street Traction Control (complete hybrid). 700hp mode. I don't drag race, though, so...

    Well I have just returned from my first try at the Hellcat drag racing at Santa Pod UK- it has been on and off raining and max temp 4 degrees Celcius - so hardly ideal - traction was the hardest thing up to 3rd gear - in the end I found Trans- Track; susp- Track: Traction- street : used paddles in manual and despite tone of wheelspinning got into 12's - tyres are Prelli Zero ones that came with it and I could not get any heat into them- Car is great - I need the work. My two sons running a stock 350Z and a Prodrive 11 year old Scooby matched my times - so that wont do! - Advice very welcome

    Wider tires! No way they should match your times! You need to get comfortable in the car, learn the feel. Same with the track and lights.
