Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody
Burnout question. I’m not much of a rolling burnout guy but this day I thought I would give it a try. 2018 HCWB, Car was set to sport mode and traction control completely off. Just tapped the little peddle with a slight foot brake and the rubber was burning. Off the brakes for a few yards then shifted into second still very little pedal and mucho smoke. Hit 3rd and the car started to skate off the straight track to the left. I got off the throttle with zero rear visibility due to the humongous cloud of smoke 50 yards behind, the car started roll right then left rather violently. I did not hit the brakes or over steer, I just was trying to keep the car in the lane. I think I was only at 30 mph or so. There was pleanty of room on both sides but I can see how it could get out of control without our friend the computer. Usually getting off the throttle would bring my other drag car out of the burnout box straight after boiling the slicks. I know there is not much mile per hour out of the water at the track and that’s the issue I guess. Did I do something wrong or were the rear tires just hooking up causing the yaw issue?
