2011 srt auto

quick question, when I get on the car and it shifts, it boggs like a manual shift car shifting, between gears. I turn of the traction control, (hold for 3 secs) and it is still the same. Is this the norm??? How do I get it shift firm, other than wait for a tune?

these auto cars shift very slow.

just deal with it until tuning becomes available.

there was a report from some guy on here that said his car barks the tires going into second gear - i don't believe him and i never will.

it's almost impossible to get these tires to bark going into second with how their tuned from the factory.

just shifts way to slow.

The auto doesn't shift slow at all (at WOT). If you drive like a granny, if shifts like a granny though.

I'm not the one who originally claimed that, but I've had mine chirp a couple of times.

CHIRP, not "bark". There's a difference I guess.

I've also gotten it nearly sideways (drift style) trying to pass someone around a very slight curve in the road from a 20 mph roll and just flooring it. Moderate temps, no fog/moisture/rain affecting the road.

Believe it or not, no sweat off my back. It happens. These 392's are strong even with the stock tune.

Little off topic, but that traction control will make those moments where you're drifting while passing just about, so much worse I'm certain. Taken mine(manual) on the track many many times and it craves the drift.

it was someone else who said it.

anyways, i believe spinning at 20mph on a downshift, but i don't believe barking into second while going 52-53mph especially with how slow the auto shifts.

Completely on board with that one. Mine have all been at lower speeds.

I have chirped the tires a few times 1st to 2nd specifically in temps under 60 degrees. I have also spun the tires downshifting to 1st from a 20MPH roll.

But, driving normal the car BOGS like no tomorrow at the most inopportune time.
