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.
From the manual:
The ESP warning light, located in the instrument
cluster, starts to flash as soon as the ESP
system sensorís information varies from the
driverís intended path. The ESP warning light
also flashes when traction control is activated. If the ESP
warning light begins to flash during acceleration, ease up
on the accelerator and apply as little throttle as possible.
Be sure to adapt your speed and driving to the prevailing
road conditions. When the ESP warning light is illuminated
continuously, the ESP is switched off. To return to
the enhanced vehicle stability offered by ESP, press the
ESP switch (the ESP warning light in the instrument
cluster goes out). Avoid spinning one drive wheel. This
may cause serious damage to the drive train.
To improve the vehicleís traction when driving with
snow chains, or starting off in deep snow, sand or gravel,
switch off the ESP system by pressing the ESP switch.
