Still experiencing issues with my car ( I think ) car just doesn’t seem to have pop . Custom setting - sport trans , sport steering - street everything else . Just went for a romp and I can’t break the tires loose from a dig .. that can’t be ? Anyhow , I was wondering if another hellcat owner could meet up at some point and see what they think ? Going to the dealer over and over has become maddening .

Yes to all , 1600 miles
Stock PZero Tires? Can you bring up the performance pages and have the screen that has your TQ/HP dial on and have a passenger eye or camera on it when you're doing a pull? Should read close to 700 but not quite 717.

How does the shifting feel? Aggressive and snappy or delayed and sluggish? Might be something small and stupid, and I am rather sure they do a dyno/break in phase at the plant before the car even reaches the customer (could be wrong, double check me) so I think they would've known if it was down power before you even got it.

Shifting felt sluggish almost like it was stuck in street mode ? What’s really concerning is that it couldn’t break the tires loose from a dead stop . Tires - stock pirelli p zeros

I am in SoCal, it is a large area..... That said I am in the North County Coastal San Diego area.....
Is it stock?
I would recommend disconnecting the battery in the trunk wait a half hour and re-connect it.

Yea something is def wrong then, it should absolutely roast the tires even in street with it blipping power off and on.

Try with TC off (idk how to do it in an auto but I think you gotta be in park and foot on brake and hold tc-srt button for 10 seconds)

My 392 with 315 can roast the tires from a dead stop...something is definitely off. Is Eco mode on by some strange chance?

wth maybe they accidentally put a 4 banger in at the factory lmfao. But in all seriousness this isn't making any sense unless theres something electrical preventing the car from using its full power.:unsure: Random shot in the dark here but do you need to update your UConnect system?
