Yes, power brake... The rear brakes aren't applied as heavy as the front and the front wheels aren't getting pushed...

on my RT...
1. press ESP off button
2. Put car in drive (or 1)
3. hold brake with left foot just hard enough to stop the car from moving.
4. Punch it. (WOT)
...
5. Start planning for the next set of tires ;)

I can actually hold the car still and light up the tires... sometimes the rear will start drifting a bit but I could hold the front wheels 'til I was running on rims.

the problem with the power brakeing in chargers is the rear disk brakes. even if you do not hold 100% brakeing power your rear disk will hold. the Anti lock brakeing system will sence your tire spinning. after a bit it will hold tighter on your rear tire. not alot but over time it will tear your brakes up. i was hopeing you guys knew weather or not the parking brake holds the rear tires, frount tires or both. i am not a fan of power brakeing. if the parking brake holds all of then i think liner locks will have to be put in for me.

I have a daytona as well. I still have the stock michelins on it and I have had several cars w/ michelins. These tires don't smoke verry well. They leave dark patches of rubber if you power brake just right, but they leave verry little smoke.
