    So I'm finally at 500 miles. Been kind of hard to stay around the 3000 RPM range. I work 3 miles from home, and luckily have a good business going.
    So, today, I take my HC out with a friend and have lunch.
    Get back to work, and my other buddy who owns the Hellbird build, is with a friend in his SRT Jeep, who has a few 426 Hemi's and winged cars (plural) of his own. $$$$$$
    They want me to show them the car, so only using the red key and in track mode, I decide to do some donuts in front of my shop. Well I notice the car slowed while on the gas and sideways.
    I didn't realize I could hold the traction button down for 10 seconds and turn TC to OFF (like my 2013 SRT).DUH!
    I don't know what I was thinking. It never even dawned on me. Just figured track mode and your good to go.
    No stupid,.....hold the button and turn it OFF.
    So now I realize I'm going to need tires in a very short period of time.
    I bet you though this was going to end badly, lol.
    Put a smile on my face. Now I realize this car is really stupid.
    I hope nobody wants their 20 seconds back for reading this.
    Have a great weekend, it's time for a beer.

    You have got to hold that button down for 5 seconds or something. Felt the traction control kick in last night when I lit them up a bit. Street mode. Was not going for a big smokey just a little roll on fun
