    I was told today at a car show that my new Cat with 200 miles will not release all 700 horses until I reach 500 miles despite the fact it says 700hp on the srt page with red key. True????

    Not true.

    The launch control is locked until 500 miles

    I just got 500 miles on our hc challenger. I could not tell any differance at all when getting on it. Dealer also told me that the 707 dont unlock till 500 miles on it. And red key only has 500 hp till then

    This 500 mile rule is a myth.

    My advice to you is to remember the name of the SRT rep that gave you that information. If you ever call them again and you get the same person, immediately hang-up and repeat until somebody else answers.

    Agree. I have 800 mi on mine. Launch control unlocked at 500 but no difference in power now compared to pre 500. wonder where that myth started.

    The "Myth" started/starts when what are the supposedly most reliable people that you speak with specifically tell you something to the affect of "the ECU will lock you out of 700+ HP until after the 500 mile break-in period".

    Why in the hell wouldn't you believe them? Because they're the "SRT" tech for the dealership???

    Na, that wouldn't make any sense... :confused:
