I dont kow how it can tell if you need to slam on the brakes but I know the brakes work damn good on the SRT8's.
An old lady that pulled right out in front of me made me test the brakes. I actually had to pull over to the side of the road because the MUSTANG behind me could not stop fast enough. I ended up stopping wayyyy before I hit the lady but the Mustang was slipping right on by and almost hit her. If I handnt have pulled to the side the Mustang would have hit me in da azz.
I'm guessing this is something new for 2012 models. Don't think it's on 2011's.
Ready-Alert BrakingThe system anticipates situations when the driver may initiate an emergency brake stop and pre-charges the brake system to decrease the time required for full brake application.
The Ready Alert Braking system anticipates when the driver quickly releases the accelerator pedal and may initiate an emergency brake stop, after which the electronic stability control pump engages to set brake pads against rotors in order to decrease the time required for full brake application.
There's Brake Assist that:
Overcomes the tendency of not applying the brakes hard enough in an emergency braking situation by using the ESC system to instantly
apply the maximum available brake pressure
so you abruptly take foot off pedal? does it use the gyro sensors to also “sense” an emergency? I thought there were other parameters to the “brake assist” feature, I figured it has these sensors for the electronic stability program, not the traction control as I am reading this uses the tires rotation. I had been under the impression the ESP (dodge calls theirs “program” everyone else “control” in Electronic stability) used these two separate inputs for information, maybe a guru can help.
