Another nod to the theory that more traction combats wheel hop? Seems counter-intuitive, but the results seem to keep pointing that there is something here.

Look at the rear tires they put on a Viper. I'm guessing those tires are on the car because it can use that extra width (larger contact patch), not just because they look good on the car and they...

Your torque is dropping like a rock on the low end, so that makes perfect sense that you are having much less trouble coming out of the gate at full available torque. A supercharged 6.2 L v8 @ 700...

The "control" argument is really a strawman argument. Once you put autostick to work, you have exactly the same amount of "control". Granted, it won't feel exactly the same, but that is a different...

ABSOLUTELY, yes! 100+ temps are heatsoak imminent conditions, and running 87 octane fuel in those conditions is begging for the the engine to dial back to keep from knocking. If it feels about as...

Yesterday, I incidentally lined up with an AMG 550 "kompressor" at a red light. I had about 60 sec to visually take it all in. Everything looked "fast" about it, so I made the wise choice to not...

My exploration into the matter is that the ability to burnout is a fine line. You want to be able to do it, but not so much that it seems like the tires aren't really going to work to move the car. ...

Have to admit, after my rear suspension and tires became the grip-monster, I miss the opportunity to burn-out on demand a bit. It hooks like the catapult off an aircraft carrier, which is also...

I'll add that most wedge-head v8's from that age were as you describe (before the application of the aftermarket, hot-rodded cam, of course).

The Gen 2 Hemi, otoh, has a different story, though. ...

Since the summer weather came in, and with my rear camber zeroed out, burnouts are nearly impossible on my car. Those rear tires are locked to the ground like a vice.

Yes, you can easily do burn-outs in the auto (contrary to what another poster implied). You can do straightline burnouts even with the traction control entirely activated. The caveat here (and it...

Did they remove the "middle thing" or the "back of the car thing"?...that's where we need to start. ;) Then we can go over, which "thing" were you intending them to remove?

Given that it is based on a full-size car platform at this point, I doubt there is any merit to classifying the modern Challenger as a "pony car". No matter what it was considered in the past, I...

A muscle car still needs to be putting down some torque, regardless of the hp. Otherwise, any given boosted-i4 could serve as a "muscle car engine", and that would just not be the same thing (even...

Correct...that is why it is referred to as "semi-off" when you just press the Mr. Squiggley button. It doesn't intervene right away, rather at a higher threshold of lost traction and/or body motion.

I cringed when I saw that Challenger come back down on the front wheels. I'd have thought something would have got bent after that.
