Am I the only Hellcat owner that doesn't want or need to modify his Hellcat?

    Let me start by saying that I am Car Crazy and probably have modified every vehicle I have ever owned.

    Better way to look @ it is every machine I've ever owned I have modified for more power. Don't care if it was a boat, car, motorcycle, waverunner, minibike, lawnmower I could go on.

    But these Hellcats are more than fast Enuf, just asked that Ferrari owner I blew away with his pretty girlfriend. Most cars don't stand a chance compared to 707hp. Every time somebody gets an inkling they can compete they become just dust in my rearview mirror

    Car handles great, more then you need on any road.

    I may just keep this Hellcat completely stock

    Anybody else out there think the same way or am I crazy?

    I'm with you with one exception...I am redoing the Alcantara seating to upgraded leather, turning the all black interior to black and white with red stitching. Under the hood, nada. Did put on Mopars mud flaps though.

    I am sorta with you, a few simple mods for me

    Mudguards, muffler delete, drag radials, lockpick. That's it

    Unless you plan to take your Hellcat to the drag strip, it needs little else IMHO. There's another post started today about "first mods". For the sake of paint protection, I would encourage Xpel or similar clear film on your front fascia and mud flap / rock guards in all 4 wheel wells. Anything else is really "aesthetic flavoring" to suit your taste. Enjoy your car!

    I plan to keep it completely stock throughout the warranty. Does that count? :D

    After that... maybe some custom paint and some hotchkis springs / sway bars to lower the car a little for a better stance and slightly better cornering.

    As for under the hood... I haven't decided yet. If I do beef it up... it will be bolt-on stuff.... headers / after market cats, water-methinol injector (Mainly cuz the gas here sucks at 91 octane max), and a performance tune. Nothing overly radical... just better breathing / altitude compensation (I'm at 4500-8000 feet constantly in this area). I may also go with a pully and throttle body, but I don't know. I'm not going for 9's at the Drag strip, so I don't see a reason to get deep into modifications for more power.

    all the car needs is drag radials (305's).....should have come as an option from Dodge since its pretty much a straight line drag car

    i am also a purist, but felt the need to add the AAR side stripes because Stock=too plain

    We will keep our Cat 707 stock till the warranty is out. Way to many issues could come up that would mess up our fun money. Lol

    Since I'm just a wannabe racer, and will probaly never progress past hobbiest racer, the car is more than I'll probably ever need.
    Also I'm not willing nor finacially capable of playing the competitive game.
    Visual mods that I enjoy are all that I plan on at this time. (Hedging my statment in case I win the lottery...)

    I MUST modify (personalize) any car that am proud to own. The Hellcat is most definitely on the personalize list.

    I am not touching NOTHING under the hood.
    I am not interested in tearing this HC up.
    I have cars to beat on at the drag strip.
    I like it exactly the way it is with Warranty !!!
