Sup!

New Hellcat owner here. Assuming you went through proper break in procedures, how long before you first went WOT? Mine is in the process of breaking in, but at partial throttle, I can already feel the immense acceleration prowess....so much it actually makes me nervous. Does WOT break the tires loose at 60mph? Make the car go "squirlly"? I'm afraid I may have bitten off more than I can chew. LOL.

Congrats on your purchase, jealousy abounds lol. Considering a car can get squirelly with a lot less power, I'd count on it happening with that much power. Try not to scare yourself bwahahah. Maybe black key time for a while.

Well I floored it this morning at 60mph after a topping off a full tank of gas. I could tell the traction control was working, because the car felt it was "held back". It chirped at first but then I had no wheelspin, and it accelerated slightly quicker than my 2015 tuned 392 Challenger for the first half second. However, I noticed the acceleration rate increasing rapidly (and g forces) the longer I held. After about 3 seconds I let off, but I felt if I kept at it would continue increase in acceleration rate and g force. Not ready to go that high yet.

This was in default mode. Next time I will find a nice long stretch and try track mode (which was like a night and day difference on my 2015 392 Challenger.)
