2012 RT 5.7 Hemi 390 HP - Piece of Crap...
Just got back from the dealership. Complained that the trans was slipping. Dealer said NO, it is perfect.???

390 HP and I can't even "chirp" the wheels from a standing start???

I can rev the engine while driving and the RPMS go up but the truck doesn't do anything.???

With the pedal down it shifts through gears like its slogging through Jello.

Is this for real??? Is the dealer right?? What canI do and not mess up my warranty????????

$30,000 for 390 hp???????????

What gear ratio does your truck have. Also did you try turning off the traction control.

All the R/T trucks have 4.10 LSD, should be able to spin no problem. The traction control and torque management keep things pretty mild. If you want to experiment, go pull the ABS fuse which disables ABS, Traction control and the ESP. Then it should ruin your tires just fine! My 3.21 truck can spin the tires no problem!

Hers mine with nothing pulled just traction control off so not sure whats going on is the new tranny that much of a POS

My crew cab with 3.55 won't break the tires loose from a dead stop but it pulls really hard once above 2k. I think the torque management is keeping it mild also maybe the accelerator delay.

My 10 sport QC with the 3:55 was unable to chirp until after I installed the SC Cortex tune. Big difference after the tune even with just the 87 tune. The 91 tune, well what can I say it's a different truck. Unfortunetaly they have not cracked the code for 11's and 12's that I know of.
