    Does anyone know exactly what procedure dealer must follow before delivering a new Hellcat to customer, also what does the notice taped to top of supercharger say? Thanks in advance!

    Thanks Jim. I was wondering that myself. Nice to have someone in the know, working at a dealership sharing information.

    Don't forget about the lot boy taking your car out for a fast burnout and a hot lap around McDonald's drive thru.

    Is it a must they drive it? Is it just the tech that does this? Can you ride with them when they do it?

    IF the dealer is close i.e. 5-10 miles to the train depot where they unload, can they pick up and drive the car to dealership?

    Hey Guys, I don't know about anyone else but I intend to break my car in properly ,that being said, I don't need some clown beating the SH** out of it just because its not their car or money! And again what does the paper taped to top of supercharger say?

    Depends on dealer. And yes must be driven a min of 8 miles. I don't see why you would not want it driven????

    Most techs will treat it with care. But we must check it out. I do go wide open to check Trans shifts. And exhaust actuators. I would rather it brake on me.

    Don't get me wrong I don't beat it. Now worth losing my job over.

    A tech by himself or with the customer would be all good. Just don't need 1 GM and 3 sales people riding in it.
