    I searched all the threads on the dreaded Condensation issue happening to near everyone. The consensus sez its normal to have a puddle of water under a Hellcat. Most everyone has agreed its either A/C or Exhaust condensation.

    However....everyone posts pics only. Behold!! The video of my Hellcat peeing on my garage floor in glorious HD! Mine is peeing off the "lip" of the passenger side of the transmission. See video (at 3:43 it will clearly show where mine is rolling off the "lip"). Mine drips mostly on passenger side...but also drips on driver side. In my case its crystal clear COLD water (no dirty sooty exhaust water). Makes me want to bottle it up and sell it to Californians to aid them in their time of need. ;o)

    I will admit that it's disconcerting to see "The Puddle" under my car every day. Your brain sez "OMG something bad is happening!". It not easy to train yourself to ignore a puddle under your car. I'm on my 5th SRT vehicle...Hellcat is only one with the issue.

    If it's clear cold water it sounds like you have an AC drain tube problem. That's the only cold clear water source. I don't know where it is supposed to drip but yours is running down onto the trans.

    I got a video of mine today. The drip on mine is exhaust condensation and it's dripping off the pipe directy ahead of the band clamps leading to the X pipe section. This was less than 30 seconds after startup

    Was Air Con'd On?
    Anytime you compress air,
    It produces water..(yes even internal combustion Engines with blowers)
    so...
    Condenser drain lines routed to this area my guess...
    Water...Probably not a concern!

    My car leaked on the floor as well until, the exhaust had to be removed just forward of the x-pipe to effect some repairs from my recent accident. Now the exhaust does not leak at all. o_O
