    Owners, please do all of us (and future Googlers) a favor and post up detailed resolutions to your mechanical issues. I'm sure the first thing you did when you ran into a car problem was Google it and find two hundred posts where a bunch of forum guys expressed an opinion as to what the problem was and then crickets.

    We've all been there - freaking out when the car's doing something funky and getting frustrated because there are no answers on the internet, only conjecture. Let's do each other a favor and share solutions so the next guy with the same issue can find some solid answers.

    Hey, if you posted up your issue here and have never posted a resolution, how about doing it right now?

    Thanks.

    That's a great idea!

    I'll start with one... had a problem where every day, just had this dull, disconnected, almost zombie effect when driving.

    Turned out, we just had to buy a Challenger!!! Problem solved :D:D:D

    All symptoms are gone now, replaced with sheer delight and ultimate satisfaction!

    Yeah yeah. So you were forced to go to the dealership to get that resolved?

    Quick trip to the local dealer fixed us right up!!!

    Well, I say local. We ended up driving a bit further to get better service from Steve White Motors in Hickory, NC.

    For some reason, the three dealers closest to us are absolute jokes.

    About the only issue we've had so far, was a really bad grinding when trying to go into reverse. Was embarrassing for quite a while. Very harsh, very loud. But it slowly went away. Have found out too if you want to use reverse gear, drop her down into fourth or sixth first, then she slips right into reverse with no grinding.

    Steve White huh? Did you talk to Luke? He can set you up with the sweetest little Magnusson supercharger you ever want to see. It does void the factory warranty but keep it to a 6 PSI pulley and Magnusson gives you a 3/36 warranty. and don't believe that bologna about open headers killing your torque numbers. Last pull on the Dyno was with the zoomies open after heat soak from the first 2 Dyno runs. 20170316_195442.jpg 20170806_152533.jpg
