Sure...on my 2010 PCP R/TC six speed...ESP completely disabled is relatively easy! Push the button for six seconds!
And it gives great results!  2thumbs

Is that on a stock car or a Diablo modded one? I do that on my modded '08 but I never tried it before the Diablo tune.

Are you sure you can completely disable the ESP? On the Charger R/T, you can turn off the traction control and roast the tires, but the ESP isn't completely disabled. On the SRT and Police Package models, it can be disabled completely. Maybe the Challenger is different.

Firstly, this car is COMPLETELY stock!

But...it does have an edge....it's the "Super Track Pack" option. There's three settings for ESP.
1. Traction control on (default setting). Nail the throttle and get 10-15 feet of rubber, then it hooks up - hard!
2. Press ESP button - symbol lights up in the far right gauge. ESP is now at 60% effectiveness, and you'll get 20-30 feet of rubber at a hard 3000 rpm clutch drop.
3. The STP "Special" - press the button and hold for 6 seconds. On the EVIC readout it says: "ESP DISABLED", and a second later "ESP OFF". That's the ticket too 60-70 foot smokey burnouts!!

On the Challenger Classic with the STP option, the tires are upgraded to the SRT8 tires, the Goodyear F1 specials, in the same 20 inch size. They are notorious for inducing wheelhop.

So I guess the Challenger IS different then. Thanks for the info!

Hmmm......my '70 also has a 'traction control' device in it sometimes.

It's called W.I.F.E.


"Oh my god! Whats wrong with the car!"

"What the hell are you doing!"

"You're driving like a lunatic!"

I've held her button down for 6 seconds with no changes.
