I have a 2010 RT PCP auto with STP. I changed out the 3.06 rear end to a 3.92 Getrag. Which rear end is in the SRT? I found the 3.06 to high for drag racing and not a true posi. Also if the car is equipped with STP than you can hit the ESP once and it turns it 50% off. Hold it in for about 10 sec and all the bells and whistle will go off. You are in complete control and without a good set of DR's you'll smoke 1/2 the 1/4 mile. I like to run the car in auto stick and not D. Car runs stronger and shifts at around 5600-5800 RPM by itself. Hope this helps.

Yes the SRT you hold the ESP button for 7 seconds or so and it disables it.

If you put the car in D and tap the T (shifter) handle to the right it will shift the car into 1st, tap again 2nd, ect. the same goes for down shifting just tap to the left. Running the car in auto stick allows you to shift the car through the gears. It also shuts off the MDS system and runs the car more aggressive. When drag racing and placing the shifter in 1st it will shift at about 5600-5800 by itself through the gears. Making for a more consistant ET. If your car has some miles on it from potential buyers test runs. With the auto's if you can pull the F2 fuse (under hood) and it will reset the adaptive driving computer to zero. Now drive it like you stoled it and it will also be more aggressive. Good luck

One slight misstatement in your comment, SRT's don't have MDS, R/T's with auto do. But basically what he said about manual shifting the auto.
