    I hate to admit it, but I'm unable to grasp some of this stuff.
    I would like to totally disable all traction control, but can't seems to figure it out. I understand that this will create a potentially dangerous driving environment.
    Are there two different traction controls? Is one ''stability'' and the other ''traction Control''?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
    THANKS!

    I recommend reading the owner's manual, before getting crazy with the car. If you put the car into Sport mode, it does allow significant burnouts. However, to completely turn off all traction control, you hold down the button (beneath the touchscreen) for five full seconds. Don't be surprised if it fishtails into a curb and breaks a wheel, if you aren't used to a car with crazy power.

    Just make sure you have plenty of side room when disabling TC in case it gets away from you. X-Men is right, it is a demon like that.

    This ^^^^^^^ its a very wild and wooly burnout (if you know what you're doing) Otherwise I'd caution you against turning it completely off. The Hellcat is not the car to play around in if you don't have much experience. You WILL lose control.

    You have to be at a complete stop when you hold the traction control button down for the 5 to 6 seconds in order to fully disable it. Otherwise, it'll just switch between street, sport, and track.

    I just noticed there was a lot of instructions on how to turn the traction control off but nobody offered any direction on how to turn it back on. I woulda expected atleast a "not to worry getting it back on is easy" or something like that after all the concern expressed about turning it off. SUCH FAKERS!!!!!!! Don't crash dude!

    Seriously, dude? All you do is push the button again. I guess we figured anyone with even a little sense could figure that part out. Now you have all the info you need.

    Finally took the time to try this out. I went to a great spot where's there's no traffic and lots of road.
    W O W ! ! ! I was rolling at about 5mph, went hammer down. The car banged through 3 gears so fast it was spooky, she started getting sideways and I got out of the gas. It was a blast!!! But tons of caution MUST be exercised!!!!!!!!!
    It is crazy dangerous!

    My has been loosing its back end from the get go... in the first three gears. When you go through the owner manuals you also learn that it will take 300miles for the stabilization controls to dial in and the car starts to change a little over time. Also launch control comes on or available around 500miles. So safety thing until the engine and parts are worked in. 1500km and its still a crazy ride!!
