    Until it goes down to about 1,000 or 900 rpm before you start driving it ?

    I always do to let it warm up a bit because when driving it goes down to about 700-800rpms to start.

    Once I actually get mine, I will apply the same principles I've always used. Wait until it idles down and then warm it up slowly before I get into traffic to get it up to operating temp

    Yes for a couple of minutes...ha let the performance pages come up before engaging! Then seriously after driving out of your driveway don't ever press it until everything is at normal operating temps.

    Agreed. We have a lot of cool (near freezing) mornings even during the summer, so your warm up time may vary.

    My neighbor was outside relaxing in their hot tub on this 25 degree morning. When I remote started the Charger, he nearly snapped his neck off. 'Merica!
