    I am a principal owner of American Endurance Racing and we had our first race at NJMP three weeks ago. We used great ceasers ghost as our pace car. I can tell you first hand that this car handles very well on a road track. Pushed it to 161 on the front straight of lightening and didn't have to push very hard.

    Is the car heavy? Sure. It does handle far better than everyone thinks it will.

    Wow that's gutsy! One wrong move and there goes your new ride. Very cool though.

    I had it in track mode using the flappy paddles. I can tell you that there is no way to fully turn off the traction control. The paddles are also intelligent and don't let you grenade on a down shift.

    So, you can't press the traction control button for 10 seconds (waiting for the chime) and have yours turn off? Your car must be broken.

    In track mode with traction control off you can still feel it on. Not uncommon that you can't really and truly turn it off, however, the hold down button idea is new to me.

    The SRT models have always had this feature. Try it, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    Although I've only put a few hundred miles on my Challenger, I've been very impressed with its handling. Far better than I thought it would be or should I say lead to believe. Looking at the cars behind you in that picture I bet they struggled to stay with your Charger :D
