  1. 5 speed auto owners...any troubles?

    General Maintenance Discussion
    Wow! :o
  2. 5 speed auto owners...any troubles?

    General Maintenance Discussion
    Geez, I hope so! That fluid might as well be the finest purity sno-cain in a kilo bag, right? ;) Are you saying the 8-spd's "never" need a fluid change because it is in there for "life" of the transmission?
  3. 5 speed auto owners...any troubles?

    General Maintenance Discussion
    Holy smokes! Check out this scoop I just got...there's an older and newer fluid type with the Dodge transmissions. If the older, the charge for the service is more like what you guys mentioned earlier. If it's the newer type, it's $1200 to get the service done?!? Crazy, right? Evidently the...
  4. 5 speed auto owners...any troubles?

    General Maintenance Discussion
    Now that these models have accumulated considerable miles, how is your 5-spd faring? Did you have to get it rebuilt after x number of miles? What was your dealer experience on this front, if you had the lifetime powertrain warranty? I'm wondering how they handle the torque convertor clutch...
  5. Having trouble launching my hellcat

    SRT Hellcat 6.2L Supercharged (2015 - )
    If you're getting a bad time, figure the amount of time spent in wheel slip, subtract that from your bad time, and add maybe .1 sec? The answer will be what you would hit if you pulled off an ideal launch. Does that work about right?
  6. Stage 2,3 scat packs, are they legal?

    General Challenger Discussion
    If you can smell gas fumes out back as it idles, I'ma guess it won't pass typical inspections. :p
  7. Best mods for better MPG

    General Challenger Discussion
    On the contrary, I think it does a disservice to our challengers to not acknowledge the mpg potential. If people believe only a prius can deliver acceptable mpg, that's the only car that will be in our future... I'd rather not go down that timeline without a fight ;)
  8. Best mods for better MPG

    General Challenger Discussion
    My theory on hills, it's not nearly as bad on fuel economy as anticipated. As long as you can coast on the downside for appreciable distance, should be able to recoup any heavy gas use on the upside. If the climbing side is relatively short and the coasting side is nice and long, you might...
  9. Best mods for better MPG

    General Challenger Discussion
    I think the best advice above all (in conjunction with sticking with the the premium octane, regardless of what the user manual says) is to find that balance between a spirited throttle and the gentle coast. The spirited throttle is when the engine is achieving highest thermodynamic efficiency...
  10. 2017 challenger r/t 5.7L - 0to60 time slow

    General Challenger Discussion
    The thing I've noticed, after much ownership time, is that there is also an audio quality to the engine that changes when that vct dials from default position to performance position. In the default position, the engine/exhaust sounds mostly smooth, and maybe even a bit more quiet. When the vct...
  11. 2017 challenger r/t 5.7L - 0to60 time slow

    General Challenger Discussion
    Get on a pile of cool, dry air with 30 mm Hg pressure, fresh start of the morning, one day...it'll feel like your hemi got hit with nitrous! :D
  12. 2017 challenger r/t 5.7L - 0to60 time slow

    General Challenger Discussion
    100 deg weather, city driving over 15 min, Florida humidity...fuggediboudit! ;) you have about zero chance of getting good air at that point Look at it this way...It's not like this is *only* affecting your engine. Every other car on the road will take a similar performance hit.
  13. Theoretical question: Hemi

    General Challenger Discussion
    Just a point of information...putting a big engine in a lighter vehicle doesn't necessarily promise big fuel economy gains. The less hard it works, the less efficient it is thermodynamically on the power stroke. If you purposely work it harder in that lighter car to make up for that, you'll be...
  14. Throttle Delay/Slight Bog

    General Challenger Discussion
    My theory is that the lag isn't the drive by wire, rather it is the vct dialing from economy mode to power mode. I also believe that heat soak effect exacerbates the lag effect
  15. It's HOT in Phoenix, intake temp 177

    Challenger Issues & Problems
    If you were sitting still with the A/C on, that IAT read (while stinkin' hot) is really not unusual. It's the radiator fan baking your intake equipment with very hot air from the radiator...think of it as essentially a forced convection oven. They cook food really well, right?
  16. New '16 ScatPack 392 Shaker... shaking.

    General Challenger Discussion
    My 5.7 trembles the car a bit at idle. Y'all probably think it's broken, but it runs healthy and strong. Maybe it's because I don't run that fancy shmancy Shell gas all the time?
  17. Progressive's "Snapshot" and our cars

    General Challenger Discussion
    You know Mad Max had a solution already thought out for the car accident vs black box scenario (referencing The Road Warrior). ;)
  18. Progressive's "Snapshot" and our cars

    General Challenger Discussion
    I had always assumed this Snapshot thingy would immediately combust into a lot of sparks and smoke when plugged into any Challenger? :p
  19. Latest Dodge TV commercials doing us a disservice?

    General Challenger Discussion
    Also consider that the lead, alpha male of the group is Dom. Everybody looks up to Dom. What does Dom like. He likes old school muscle. Perhaps the movie throws everything in there to appeal to somebody, but it gives the biggest nod of respect to Dom and his preference to muscle cars, imo...I...
  20. Latest Dodge TV commercials doing us a disservice?

    General Challenger Discussion
    Yes, I've seen those. The problem is, when I try to download the YouTube in HD, I can only get the crappy low-rez version (something about being a paid member?). I'm looking for somebody who has archived it or maybe captured it on regular network broadcast (during a football game?), so I can...
