    Curious to see if there are any owners that have done weight reduction or contemplating to do it. What are available options for reducing those hefty 4400 lbs?

    I'd rather have a "hefty" 10 second Hellcat than a stripped out raggedy 10 second Hellcat. If speed is your only concern you can build something faster than a HC for a lot less money.

    Just weight for a tune, and you went need to shed weight, and you will be in the low 10s

    I would think making the Hellcat any faster would be a dangerous proposition...

    For a weekend, passenger seat, rear seat, and subwoofer/amp assembly are possibilities. All should bolt/plug back in. Maybe 400 lbs? Is it worth it?

    Don't forget you'll need that weight to hold down the horsepower to the ground and maybe more later on

    For every 100 lbs weight reduction = 10th a second in the 1/4 mile.

    This is true. My other car is at 550rwhp at 2790 lbs. I managed a 11.7 baking the tires but felt like it wanted to take off on me.

    Hmmm nice list of items. I'd leave the seats out of my car. If my friends want to go for a ride then, they can go install them themselves lol.

    Pull the subwoofer. Does nothing to improve the crappiest sound system this side of 8 tracks. :p

    WTH is going on with the sound system? My 2013 srt8 doesn't have the upgraded system and its pretty weak, but I've always heard the 900 watt system is incredible.
