    We were testing Linda's Charger this weekend and for the first time she noticed the car pulsing, well after coming back in AJ said we needed more fuel in the tank, usually I start with 1/4 tank and let go down to about an 1/8 as the car starts to heat soak but from now on will fill it to 1/4 after every pass. I don't know if all hell cats are reading the tanks the same but with the SC we don't want to go lean when racing.

    In one of the early videos of the charger tests one ran out at around 1/8th tank or so on the track.

    I havent had the same issue with the Challenger. I have ran down until the fuel light has come one and still no issue.

    Wow I actually had a similar experience. I had less than 1/8th tank and on my 3rd or 4th pass the car cut off about 1/2 way down the track for half a second. Then it dawned on me that the hard launch and heavy pull ran the sump dry!!
