Popping sound?

Alright so I'm not sure what is going on; I have a 2016 GT PP Manual purchased new not long ago, it has 1191 miles on it. I have noticed that when i first turn it on and turn to get out of my driveway or a parking spot it makes these strange popping sounds as I move that I think are coming from the front end somewhere, I can even feel the pops as they happen. It seems like it only happens when the wheels are turned. The popping seems to completely stop like there's nothing wrong after the cars been on for awhile. Could it be because the car isn't warmed up and the cold? (It's like 13 degrees out right now) what on earth could this be? I don't think this should be happening in a brand new vehicle!

I have experienced the same thing when I turn out of a parking space first thing in the morning but only when the wheel is turned as far as it will go. No clue what is going on. I drive a 2015 Manual non PP btw.

Same thing with my '15 GT PP, I alway thought it was the shocks breaking free after sitting still overnight, but I've read that it is the sh***y stock summer tires skipping on a sharp turn from being too cold.

That would make a lot of sense. Glad to hear that's all it is.

Maybe the summer tires are trying to tell you something.

I've been experiencing this as well. It'd be interesting to hear from someone running a different rim and tire set up and see if the sound is still there.

Summer tires are only good to 45 degrees F and up.

I'm glad to hear that it is normal. It's really annoying though. I feel like I'm running something over every morning or something lol. Anybody know if it's only when it's cold or year around? I've only had mine for less than a month.

I forget where the graph is, but summer tires start to fall off at 40-45F and by the time it gets to 20F, they are about as hard as dump truck tires for the first mile or so. Be very careful the first few minutes or better yet, save your paint and bodywork and get some take-off all seasons or winter tires for winter use.

RWD, Summer tires, and snow is just asking for a repair bill to happen.

Only when its cold. Usually when the temps are at or around 40 and above, normally do not hear anything. When in the 30 or lower range, you will get it when starting off with wheels cut left or right. Not just noise but you should feel a skipping or shuttering movement from the rear.

PS . . . More importantly is the loss of traction when accelerating and especially stopping. Add a little water to the mix and its all over when trying to stop.

If it's the Torsen I have it all the time. I notice it when I drive through my parking garage in the mornings around the curves going slowly. It's a little annying but I got used to it after i figure out what it was. Someone posted videos from YouTube on how helical limited slip differentials work. Something about the worm gears and when they rotate at different speeds it'll pop out to unlock the differential I believe.

Found a good explanation online, I think. I guess it is the locking you hear the popping. The worm wheel seizes on the faster spinning wheel to allow power transfer to the slower spinning wheel.

Interesting video, however, it doesn't address how the traction control system, which to the best of my knowledge, applies the brake to the free spinning wheel, supposedly causing the opposite wheel to turn.
Something's wrong here.

It's from your summer tires. Your not getting any traction and your tires won't get any. Either plan on buying new tires or new tires and rims.

I am running the stock Pirellis with the Pony Package (18') wheels. For the summer I run 18-9/10 Chrome Bullitts with Mickey Thompson Summer Tires.

There are several people who either didn't have a salesman that told you about trying to drive on summer tires in the winter or no on read their manual.

Good question, not really sure but I think the brake application is actually part of stability control mostly which will apply brake to try to prevent losing control. I imagine traction control applies brake as well but I think that's mainly to prevent spinning rather than transfer power, however it may have that effect as well. Also, only the PP has a Torsen differential I believe the others have a clutch pack LSD which would probably benefit more from the braking in this aspect as I believe there is a delay in the differential locking in that setup versus a Torsen. Again, just speculating here.

Sometimes brakes pop when the rotors have rust on them & the calipers "lock" up a little.

But that's just a single pop, when you first start to move.

I also have the same noise in my '16 GT PP. My buddy told me it's not normal with a limited slip. I'm glad to hear it's normal for the Torsen because there is no slip. I thought it was the Summer tires but it makes sense it's the differential. Thanks for the info.
