  1. Any 6MT track drivers use a Barton?

    Track Talk
    I use my '15 6MT R/T + Shaker for a daily driver and have had issues with notchy, clunky shifting. Many have suggested the Barton, which I love the feel of but seems to get stuck more than the stock shifter. Barton seems to think it's normal for it to be like this because there's less rubber...

  3. Impressions after installing Barton shifter

    General Challenger Discussion
    I was one allen key too short, but I got it in last night and it feels great. As others have said, it's a much more solid feel than the stock shifter and looks marvelous. Getting into reverse and first seem easier, though the notchiness getting into gears is still there. I'm noticing it...

  6. 6M or Auto?!?! (392 SRT)

    General Challenger Discussion
    So I am in the market for a (2015-2016) 392 SRT. I have considered all models but I feel like this is the one for me. I have always been a manual diver and for me automatics are boring- its just I hear such great things about the automatic and I am 50-50 at this point. I will just be using this...
  7. Missed a gear when shifting at high revs - manual

    Dodge Challenger R/T Specific
    Okay guys/gals, I've searched and cannot find anything on this topic so hear it goes. I was driving rather aggressively in the 2015 R/T and shifting from second to third at 4k RPM and missed. There was the usual high pitched split second grind and the 'holy sh**' moment when I backed off the...
  8. Stall When Putting In Reverse (cold start)

    Dodge Challenger SE/SXT Specific
    Hey everyone, After starting up my 2013 SXT the other day, I threw it in reverse (automatic trans), it attempted to engage, then stalled. This was on a rather cold morning. It's the first time this has happened, but I've noticed for a while that when I first start the car and put it in drive...
  9. Transmission HP limit?

    2015 Challenger Information & Discussions
    I installed a Procharger on my 15 Shaker a while ago and have been thinking of doing more engine upgrades to my 5.7L. Rotating assemblies with forged pistons and such will help the block. But I have yet to see anyone doing much as far as the transmission goes. Its got to have a HP limit on it...

    Challenger Issues & Problems
    So this morning while I was in my car I noticed a heavy clicking noise coming from underneath my gear console, possibly in my transmission. When the car is in Neutral or Park, and I press down on the brake, or release the brake, the noise occurs. The car drives fine and shifts fine. I have a...
  11. A8s & Autostick

    General Challenger Discussion
    Any other fellow A8 Owners love using the Autostick as much as I do? Unless I'm cruising (Lets be real now... Almost never "Just Cruising") I love switching that Automatic into Semi-Auto. Told myself I was going to get an M6 but came down to a good deal on an A8 and with using it as a daily...

  13. Transmission 'Jolt' on Hills Between Park->Drive

    Dodge Challenger SE/SXT Specific
    Hey, chances are this is regular behavior, but I wanted to describe what's happening here. After parking on a hill, in either direction, the car slides slightly after letting the foot off the brake, then I turn it off and all is well. However when I start 'er up, and shift from park to reverse...
  14. Automatic trans up shift issue

    Dodge Challenger SE/SXT Specific
    I have a 2009 Challenger SE V-6. At times when I slow down to merge into traffic and get back into the gas it acts as if there is slack in the rear axle or that it goes from 1st gear to 4th gear. Is anyone having similar issues? I would appreciate any help, suggestions.
