  1. Emissions recall

    Technical Service Bulletins & Recalls
    Funny thing is.. I did a hard track day at Road Atlanta over the summer. I went to fill my car up on the way home and fuel started leaking out from the evap canister location (rear right wheel well). It leaked an alarming amount. However, I never had the issue again. The SRT and 2015 Scat Pack...
  2. ReadyAlert braking feature

    General Challenger Discussion
    Has anyone felt this feature kick in? Funny thing is, I have felt it many times before but didnt know what it was at the time. Over the years i have become very in tune to how my car reacts. It feels like the brakes become very sensitive when it kicks in. Its a pretty neat feature although...
  3. Track weekend at Michelin Road Atlanta Raceway

    Road Course / Autocross
    If you ever get the urge to do it again you should definitely come up and run Michelin Road Atlanta. It is a roller coaster of a track! I will never forget the first time I went under the bridge for turns 11/12. :lol:
  4. Gas leakage after track day!

    Challenger Issues & Problems
    Thanks guys. As a note, I did not overfill the tank. Once the fuel nozzle clicks off then I call it a day. I never try to top off as its a bit silly to do. However, the nozzle could have been defective and maybe it didnt shut off in time? I too was thinking the CEL should've come on if the...
  5. Gas leakage after track day!

    Challenger Issues & Problems
    A few weeks ago I did a HPDE track weekend event at Michelin Road Atlanta Raceway. After the second day I left the track and stopped by a gas station to fill up. After filling my car up I noticed what looked to be water dripping out behind the rear passenger side wheel well. Upon further...

    Mods, I just realized there is a dedicated Road Coarse forum section. Feel free to move this thread.
  7. Track weekend at Michelin Road Atlanta Raceway

    Road Course / Autocross
    Over the last year I have been getting into road course events with my challenger. My local track is Michelin Road Atlanta Raceway. I enjoy the hell out of it. It is a weekend full of adrenaline. I finally compiled my video from my last weekend HPDE on 6/15-6/16. Below is one of my runs during...
  8. 6.4L Temperature Maximums

    General Challenger Discussion
    That will be next on my radar. I appreciate the advice! I have tracked my car multiple times before and never had any issues with oil temps overheating to this degree. I believe the hot and humid day contributed to this. Lots of other cars were having similar issues with oil temps (including a...
  9. 6.4L Temperature Maximums

    General Challenger Discussion
    As always, your advice is always appreciated:smile: I have learned a lot over the last year. For any track weekend events I take off two days beforehand and one day after. This gives me two days to prep the car. I have created a checklist as well so that I don't forget anything. I change my...
  10. 6.4L Temperature Maximums

    General Challenger Discussion
    Thank you all for your replies. I apologize that I have not replied sooner. I ended up getting swamped with completing work to get my car prepped for the track. The weekend went really well. I moved into the solo class during my last event and have been putting a lot of effort into studying...
  11. 6.4L Temperature Maximums

    General Challenger Discussion
    I occasionally do HPDE road course track events at Road Atlanta. Last time I went, I noticed my oil temp got up into the 270's (approx as I'm going off of memory). I run Amsoil synthetic and change it before my events. However, it concerns me a bit that it got that high. We run 20 minute...
  12. Best and worst feature

    General Challenger Discussion
    Hahaha sitting in a new Camaro and then see if you make that statement.. I have never been in a car with such poor rear and side visibility before. 2015 Scat Pack here Best feature: A comfortable ride Worst feature: The adaptive A8 tranny. I get so sick and tired of having to reset adaptives...
  13. Floor Jack

    General Maintenance Discussion
    I am definitely going to go this route in the future. Now that I have installed my petty front/rear sway bars (and mopar springs), the car is a fickle ***** to jack up. Anywhere you jack on one side lifts the entire side almost immediately. I always get a little nervous jacking up one side and...
  14. What’s this switch in my 16 scat pack?

    General Challenger Discussion
    Maybe it pops a mini-turret out of the trunk and turns the uconnect screen into a targeting system? Jealous..
  15. Lowering my 2016 RT with Mopar Stage 1 springs

    Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    I have the Mopar stage 1 springs and it seemed like it took a month or so before they fully settled. Be sure to give it adequate time before getting an alignment. Every car will be different. I only had one tire slightly out of spec and it has not caused any issues with tires.
