    No more "mush pedal" for this kid! It's like driving a different car. Sport level 7 is absolute perfection for street. I haven't messed with City or Track settings, yet. I wasn't comfortable with bluetooth connection, so I went with the Super Gauge. Installation was easy-peasy! Once you get the pedal set how you want it, you've got a ton of monitoring options (Super Gauge only). I get tired of switching my 8.4 screen back and forth between radio and performance pages, so the additional monitoring will come in handy.
    Sport Mode... :driver:

    I had a Sprint Booster that was off my 2010 RT, recently i found out it will work on my 2017 HC. I’ll give it a try to see if it makes much difference in pedal response...just for fun.
    I’d never heard of the Banks unit.

    The way the power comes-on (now) is nearly identical to the 392 RT's that I've driven. It feels (to me) like Dodge may have the pedal to throttle delay time dialed-up on the 345. This question was posed to Banks; "Does the Pedal Monster also adjust the shift points? It feels like it does." The Pedal Monster does not change the A8 shift points. The TCM reads pedal/throttle positioning, so the shift timing feels different. All operations are thrown into a fast-forward state, so to speak. That's my assessment anyway. I wonder how (or if) this affects adaptive learning?

    I don't know if I'll buy one. I also heard they cause excessive rear tire wear and greenhouse gases due to the tire smoke. :D

    No oil temp or oil pressure monitoring available on the Banks Super Gauge (iDash) for Dodge Challenger. Something to do with the way Chrysler has coded the system won't permit access. Banks CS recommends that I try inputting "RAM 6.7" as my vehicle information. Kind of blows, since oil temperature/pressure are the gauges that I monitor most. Maybe they'll crack the code and include it a future update.

    Yeah, they're always great to talk with. Very helpful. What I like about the Super Gauge, is that you can make adjustments on-the-fly. No need to pull-over to switch settings or modes.
