Finally got a chance to take some video, post Sidewinder Cam install. If you didn't see my install thread, it's here:

http://www.chargerforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=54061

One of my favorite 'demos' of this car (even before the cam) is to put her in '1', turn factory ESP button off, run her up to about 3.5K RPMs and then stomp on her. Before the cam, it would snap your neck back a bit and accelerate fast but never really get any scratch doing this (maybe every once in awhile it would squawk on a cool day).

On the original test drive (80 degrees outside and heat soaked) after the cam install, we did this several times and got a little squawk doing it at 3.5K, 3.0K and 2.6K RPMs. It was cool.

This morning (50 degrees outside and more time for the car to 'learn' the cam) I did the same thing and all hell broke loose! Check it out.

Run 1: 3K RPMs, '1', ESP Off (factory button)


Run 2: 2K RPMs, '1', ESP Off (factory button)


Run 3: 1.7K RPMs, '1', ESP Off (factory button)



You can see that if it didn't have to shift, she'd probably just keep on scratching. Once the Diablo comes in, I'll be able to put in paddle hold and run the limiter up to 7K RPMs and she scratch forever!

DAYUM this car is fun...

I'll be getting the car cammed after seeing this vid. The power is there. Nice to know. I liked the laugh at the end!

Nice dude!! Very nice

Do you have your superchips set for raised shift points?
I kinda like that 6k shift. Seemed like it was pretty much money on shifting right at 6k.

Wrong thread, but does the sidewinder maintain MDS?

Yep - SC: 91 tune, raised shift points. It pulls hard up to 6K where before the cam it was beginning to peter out. It likes more RPMs now for sure.

Yes - Still have MDS w/ this cam.

Thats awsome dude!
I'd love to see some MPG numbers for a long highway cruise.
I've had my girl for a year and a half and have never checked my MPG's except for long trips :)

Running 13.4X in the 1/4 using SC data acquisition (with a painfully calibrated speedo). Seems to be right in line w/ others with similar mods. Knocking on the door of stock SRTs...
