    Just been reading about the lastest Chevy engined Muscle car released in Australia (my home country). Its not in the same league HP wise as the Hellcat (its running the same Supercharged 6.2L chevy as the camaro approx 570hp), a bit lighter then the Hellcat.

    But the thing I found very interesting was the for the first time in a Aus built car this model had torque vectoring. It made a huge difference when on the power in corners, moving more power to the outside wheel and helping to stop the back dropping out and straighten the car as it was under power coming out of the corner. This has been around in some more expensive Euro cars for a while.

    Has anyone heard anything about the possibility of future Hellcats having this as an option or even standard, basically the more power you have the more benficial to have this technology.

    There is torque management on the hellcat and traction control. The best part, you can disable both completely; torque management is automatically adjusted in the PCM based upon the driver setting (Street, Sport, Track).

    That said, with traction control completely disabled, you can easily flip the back end of the Hellcat around very quick if you're not careful.

    Thanks for answering this :)
    thanks for confirming. I haven't done any other mode since my fiancé freaks out if I switch away from street mode. Scared to turn off traction control since she gets scared too.

    Thanks for the replies guys, I know about the torque management. So thats not what I was interested in, more interested in torque vectoring (its an enhancement that senses you are on power in a corner and moves some of the power away from the inside wheel and transfers it to the outside wheel). I am very sure the current Hellcat does not have it as you wouldn't see it losing the back end in every corner if it did. Not only that it would be widely advertised as well.
    [search for 2015 HSV GTS] on the web and you will see some videos and reviews talking about the Torque vectoring.

    They even recommend changes in driving style to get the best from it, as it works only under power (not brakes) so you brake early and get on the power early in the corner, as the power moves to the outside wheel it well point you more into the corner and keep you straight (not sideways). For high power RWD cars it is a big improvement, so the Hellcat would love it.

    FCA has the technology, primarily used in Jeeps.

    For the 707 monster, the less tech the better.

    But also remember in track mode, it has more traction control input then in sport
