slightly off topic but did you reload the stock tune before sending it to the dealer? i would agree that the tune is not the culprit.

Any updates? Did you run it all the way to HB Jeep or send it over to Hunter?

Also, just cause I am curious... was it cold out when you launched? The Pirelli's are pretty sticky above 60, 65 degrees, wondering if maybe there was a shock load from the wheel spinning ever so slightly and then hooking?

Im being told they will have the axle by monday, the srt guys are looking into it as well. Their suppose to call me back after they talk to the dealer. I took it to hunter just because they are down the street. It was about 70 degrees out side. Im thinking the tire just hooked and that was the weakest point, probably just defective. Jeep launched hard no tire spin. Maybe it just has to much power going to one axle and should have LSD idk...
