    image.jpeg so i traded in my 2015 SRT392 challenger for the 2016 Hellcat challenger yesterday. Several differances between the 2, or possibly the model year then.
    1.The suspension feels completely different such as Track was way firmer on the 392.
    2.Steering changes in the different SRT modes was much more noticeable on 392. Hellcat has pretty much no change and does not have abilty to change steering in custom mode.
    3. Brakes are not as touchy as 392
    4. Suspension over all seems firmer in HC
    5.throttle response was lightning quick in 392, not so much in HC. Are they both electronic as opposed to cables?
    6. I Love no sunroof in HC Feels twice as roomy inside. 1" headroom with sunroof in 392 sucked image.jpeg
    7. Leather seats seem to have more seat padding and seat a/c works better
    8. Is the fuel tank smaller in HC....oh wait, 17MPG not 23. As Emily Litella said Never mind
    9. The HK sound system is shit, on both cars. Hopefully the new firmware will help
    10. A8 mapping quite different, and that nakes sense.
    11. Phantom black 392 looked wicked. PCP is cool, wifes choice. Who am i to argue?
    What is the general consus on break in protocol?

    Re #2
    I think the HC has hydraulic steering and the 392 has electric.

    Yes we still have hydraulic steering so that is a plus in my book. Launch control is unavailable until 500 miles-useless anyway. My best runs were on sport trans and traction, street suspension. Book recommends 1500 miles before track use-I would change oil between 500-1500 miles-welcome and enjoy!

    I really wish it had electric steering. And I think the HK system is awesome. I don't get some of the complaints about it. Overall, I love my Hellcat Challenger. Just wish they wouldn't have raised the price so much.

    Agreed I wish they stayed with EAS. Selectable modes plus a bit of power gain because you don't have to turn the steering pump. Not sure why they did that. It can't be the power my Shelby had 662hp and EAS.

    First 500 miles just 500HP (and yeah just 500) and I wouldn't ride her to the moon shortly thereafter. I'd mix it up till u get a good 700 plus miles. And yeah u did the exact same thing I did had 392's 15 model's and traded up. And I really did like my 392's and can say whoever has the 392 u truly have a great fun all around car. And if u just have to have the HELLCAT (like all who own one LOL) than get it. But can honestly say the 392 is the best bang for the buck and just a fun car.
    Here's pics of my former and now newer;

    I might be wrong, but I think you can use all 707hp during break in but just follow the break in guidelines as outlined in the manual. You can always have some acceptable +/- allowance or variances as long as you don't exceed speed limits / 3500 rpm(by much..lol).

    The break in procedure guidelines are not the rule of thumb, just use it as a guide or a yardstick and exercise some restraint. Going for long drives helps in getting to the 500 mark in a hurry.

    I'd be interested to hear others chime in. I thought the computer controlled the 500 mile break in and allowed 500HP and not 707. But I learn something every day. So for others reading let us know.
