Eric Heuschele is the Supervisor of Vehicle Dynamics for the SRT Engineering group at Chrysler. In this interview, he explains why the 2009 Dodge Challenger handles so well, drawing an interesting analogy to the Porsche 911. He also describes Chrysler’s use of “knock-back mitigation” on the Challenger. It’s a problem common to high-performance cars with big brake rotors, and Chrysler owns the patents on how to cure this problem.
