That's where the ESP OFF button comes in. Right in the manual it tells you to turn it off if you are in sand/mud/snow so that you can continue to supply power when there is expected slippage.
I didn't read the manual. That makes sense. I am guessing that's why the ESP off just turns it off to an extent then. That's good info to know. Thanks. I could have used that last night crawling up a hill downtown. I had traction but the car didn't let me go.
What do I need to do to get the car to slide/ spin? Even with ESP off if you try to do a doughnut, the throttle cuts out and it tries to get traction. I have to feather the throttle and its a pain.
Today we got hammered with snow. It was my first trip driving the Charger in snow. I wasn't worried since I have had 2wd trucks in the past and once you get used to it its not bad.
Anyways, the TCS is weird on this car. I was playing around and you can hold it wide open and it wont just spin. The TCS cuts all power and only drives at low RPM's and holds traction. I think its an amazing idea but it does bum me out a little when playing... I just had to comment because I was amazed how it worked. After I realized it I would jump on it like crazy and "mr squiggles" turned on and power was minimized. Weird stuff for sure.
Now I realize I need to install a NO ESP mod so I can slide around and drift a bit.
