They asked...noted!6POINT1 said:In your last chat for the SRT 8 suggestions, did anyone ask for a limited slip and stronger axled rear?
Those two and most likely the closed PCM will be a deal breaker for me when it comes time to upgrade next year.
Thanks for the replies. Road force balanced twice, tires replaced once, and still the vibration (and common to 300C SRT8's). Will figure out that UConnect thing I am sure!Team SRT said:1) This makes no sense to us unless the wiring harness was damaged when the windshield was replaced.
2) If you can't fix wheel vibration, you need to go to a shop with a better balancer. You need to go to a place with regularly calibrated equipment and preferably a road force balancer and get each wheel/tire assembly down to 20 lbs or less.
Thanks for your question Chris.NasaRacer said:Coolant question?? My understanding is with the Factory HOAT G-05 coolant that the use of Distilled water is required per the LX service manual. And that HOAT is a Hybrid coolant unlike DEXCool which can be used safely with tap water.
My two local dealers are willing to do the Service Bulletin (Rapid Response) Coolant flush. But they inform me the back flushing is all done with tap water. Then once it is flushed they with add HOAT G-05 to bring the coolant mix to 50/50.
My issue is this will leave the system mixed with regular tap water and the ground water in our area has high level of minerals.
My contention is some sort of coolant flushing machine should be used to not only back flush the system but also replace all the coolant with a mix of distilled water and HOAT G-05 and not HOAT and tap water.
Can you advise me on the correct service procedure?

Realy...I have seen mine trigger the brakes on the Dyno....any other ideas?Team SRT said:The car works fine on the chassis dyno, (no we will not tell you what we got). The ESP system will shut itself down when it sees the fronts turning and the rears not. When you get done, restart the car and start driving, the system will reset itself and be fine.
You will lose your trailer tow capability and heavy load ability if you ditch the Nivomats. We don't know how it will affect ride and handling because we haven't tested your plan. You are on your own. You may prefer the 2008 front Magnum/Charger shocks to match the 2008 Charger rear shocks. Spring rates did not change for 2008.NasaRacer said:Thanks for the heads up!! That my plan will not work
So like I said ... If I am carefull loading my 2007 Magnum. How do you guys feel about me swaping a complete 2008 SRT8 Charger Spring/Shock Package into my 2007 SRT8 Magnum.
How will it affect ride height/handling? Is 2008 setup more about improving comfort or performance?? I know some people think the current SRT8 is too stiff. I think it is a pefect compromise.
Also will I have to make sure I get only 2008 SRT8 Charger Springs/Shocks?? Will the 300 still be softer??
Also guys ...welcome back to being a North American Company!!
a)SRT_Rocks said:Question about Caliber SRT-4:
a) Can you tell us the turbo size in camparison to Neon Srt-4 Stage-3?
b) Does the new shifter have a better/more positive shifting feel than Neon SRT-4?
c) Are the internal engine parts (Pistons, rods and crank) made stronger than Neon SRT-4?
Thank you in advance!
It's undetectable, thanks. Mostly, we appreciate the Amex Card left behind. We were tired of pizza, and the filet is *such* a welcome change.Y2K5SRT said:And has the loss of Stephens affected your typing speed?
True dat! Bring it to Belle Isle please...Team SRT said:It's undetectable, thanks. Mostly, we appreciate the Amex Card left behind. We were tired of pizza, and the filet is *such* a welcome change.
Well, at SRT Nationals in Memphis at the autocross, our Dynamics guy in the Caliber SRT4 beat the local hotshoe autocrosser in his SRT4 ACR (which had a couple degrees of front negative camber and 225 width Yokohama AVS ES100 tires) for the 3rd fastest time of the day (stability control not disabled). We also outran a Supercharged E36 M3 around the road course.svt2209 said:It has been said by many that this car can't even touch the Neon Srt4. What is your take on this?
Sorry, we can't share that information. But you could measure it if you really needed to know....lafrad said:Can you share Cam specs (0.050" durations, lifts, etc) on the Available *STOCK* SRT8 camshafts?
We are getting our hands on a customer car with a clunky front end for a couple of weeks this Friday! When we figure out what is going on we'lkl let you know.6POINT1 said:Does that mean us 06-07 "front-end clunkers" are on our own as far as a fix?
Yes there is an Ipod interface, but it is called a "UCI".NasaRacer said:I hate to ask some many questions ... but another person that couldn't make this Q&A had this question.
From a 2008 LX press sheet, It said something about Apple Ipod Intergration being added to the the "Uconnect Module"
You guys have any info on how this system will work? Will there be a plug and cable to hook to your ipod?
Please see #74. We're gonna be working on it thanks to you guys.HEMIN8R said:Please forgive me if I am going the wrong way about posing a question to the SRT Team. I am rather new to all this forum stuff. I am not even sure if my question is beinf sent and received, so any confirmation would be appreciated
My question relates to my 2006 300c SRT8 having a front-end suspension (dull)rattle over certain washboard surfaces and sewer tops .
I have read at forum sites that other SRT8 owners are experiencing the same problem. Some have said there is a problem with the Bilstein shocks. I have taken my car to Toronto Chrysler here in Toronto, Canada. The shop foreman has not found any solution to date and when he has contacted a hot line they have not been able to offer any solution either. I am scheduled to take the car back to the dealer the first week of Sept so I would appreciate your assistance in this matter.
The Dream Cruise was awesome for any gearhead. Sometimes our plans change on what we display. But you guys get information before a lot of us do, so sometimes this stuff happens.ResumeSpeed said:In a previous SRT session one of the engineers stated, in response to a question about the Challenger SRT:
"...but quite frankly, there has been plenty of speculation already. If you are a true gearhead, I would suggest you pay close attention to this year's Woodward Dream Cruise..."
A lot of us paid pretty close attention to the Cruise this year, did we miss something?
