I have the F1's on mine as well. Do they stick better than others?

Without STP one button push turns ESP Off to the point that you can burn the tires but leaves stability control ON so the anti-lock brake system works as well as stability control, on STP cars you hold the button for 6 sec. or so in Park and a chime will sound and the dash will say "ESC Deactivated" and then all systems are Off and you can spin the tires and do donuts/drifting without the computer trying to regain control.

After like 2 seconds it changes to this and remains that way until I turn off the ignition:

That's exactly how mine looks but it STILL won't breakt the damn tires loose!! !!

Apparently you get the ESP Deactivated function with either STP or the 6-speed manual trans.

Just an update.... I pulled fuse number 2 and my tires will now break free!!

Just thought I would post this just in case anyone else was having the same issue. I didn't even know about this "mod" (if you want to call it that) until some one posted up about it. I drive my call live an grandma almost 99% of the time and read how pulling the fuse can make the car relearn.... and it worked!!!

DYNAMO: Great pics, thanks much. I have the 6 speed and STP on a '12 R/T Classic with F1 Performance Tires, and can light up the tires at will with the single press ESP off and without going to deactivating the entire system. I'll have to see how it works out by using the 10 second press and having the entire system off. No mods other than the MOPAP CAI intake. With the cooler weather coming, and more miles on the odo, the Challenger becomes more of a blast to drive every day.

I haven't done any more than push the ESP button once to turn it off,and never held it down to deactivate it.My question is,does it return to ESP on mode after the ignition is turned off or maybe just pushing the button again to turn it on?My fear is that it wouldn't reset back to ESP on mode,then my wife would jump in to run into town not knowing it was going to be more "spirited".She's a little boogered by the power it makes anyway and I don't want her to be afraid to drive her dark blue beauty.

It resets after you turn the car off or push the button again so no worry's about your wife.

Just to recap...

2011+ 6-speeds come with the Track Pak and this allows full off/disable
2011+ autos without STP can only do partial off (Burnout, but stability control and ABS are still functional)
2011+ autos with STP can do full off like the 6-speeds.

Keep in mind that with full off your ABS will be disabled. Full off = no nanny systems enabled, it's up to you to keep the car under control as it won't do anything to help you with the traction, stability OR braking.
