    Anybody know if the tpms system inputs any info to the stability control??

    Like if the tpms thinks the tire is low going into a hard right turn at the track would it send a signal to the gyro / stability control to start pulsing the brakes? Even with ESC off??

    Any information appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Dale

    I wondered the same, Low pressure on DRs will light a dash warning. Will that cause the computer to pull power? I'm not hearing from anyone who has already raced their car, that this is a problem. I attended an event recently with several SRT engineers there. They didn't indicate that the low tire warning would cause any effects on power. I'll be at the track as soon as my MTs arrive so we'll see.

    are you sure you have the traction control all the way off? You have to be stopped with the traction on and hold the button down for 10 seconds and it will ding and say traction off. if it says drag mode or sport mode its not .all the way off

    I have ran mine twice with m/ts 305s with 18psi and never had a problem. I ran a 10.91 and 10.87 at 127mph

    Just remember when you shut the car off it will automatically turn back on and you will have to manually turn it off again.

    Yes it's off with the button but I think I need the bypass switch for the twisties because going in a straight line don't have any problems. I don't think even on these cars that the ESC button turns it off 100%.

    When I get my SRT track day scheduled I will ask that specific question.

    You hold that button down until it dings, it is off. Try it, the tires spin up much, much differently with mine. My '06 SRT had much less power, it was easier to tell the difference, same button, when it dings it is off.

    It dings but I'm not sure that it's 100% off...
    In hard cornering you can feel the ABS system working....I still believe that the DSS module (if that is what it's still called) is still affecting it in hard cornering.
    The switch on the 2014 cuts it completely off and you can tell the difference in the corners
