Be in neutral with foot on brakes, bring RPM up to 3500 and drop into gear. You'll chirp your little boy brains out as much as you want.

Also, hang some fuzzy dice from the rear view mirror and you'll look the part.

This has been beat to death, but I can tell ya that I have the Express 2012 QC 4x4 and I could smoke the tires after my break in pretty well. I have the new Toyos 34" on now and it still rocks the tires by accident when hurrying in traffic

Gear swaps and custom tunes are the only way to get what you're looking for......I've said it before....if you want that kind of performance for 30K.....get a R/T Challanger. JMO.

Just wondering if the HEMI owners in the cooler areas are more pleased with the performance of their trucks. Hot humid weather sucks the power out of allot of these newer vehicles. A cool dry day (we have about 2 per year) here in south Texas is like a fresh dyno tune!

I think it's sad you couldn't brake your tires loose with a 4.10 rear end bud. And an R/T to boot! I do it all the time with my CC 4x4 3.55LSD with traction turned off. There's an old saying, "Don't blame the equipment, rather, blame the operator".

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???????????
Did you test drive it before you bought it? also did you try to spin the tires if you test drove it
