    Wow. That took a while but is was worth the wait. Ordered mine in September and just got it. I also have a 2014 Jeep SRT that I love and will be my daily driver, but this Hellcat is unbelievable! I am 66 and have ridden in many hot rods and fast cars, boats etc., but this is in another class, all by itself! Scary, actually. I am heading to Las Vegas on Thursday and will be running this monster on the drag strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Friday and Saturday at a big event called "Mopars On The Strip". They comp'd me and a buddy for the whole weekend (not rooms) because we are bringing the 20150323_171351(0).jpg 20150323_171419.jpg
    Hellcat. Then the weekend after that, we are running it, and the Jeep, at Fontana, CA. (Auto Club Speedway) Life is good!

    Congrats on the delivery of your Cat. Beautiful red Hell Baby! Assuming you will complete the break-in on your drive to Las Vegas. Be careful not to run that Baby too early before she's all broken in. Have fun and enjoy your 2 upcoming events. Enjoy you Hell Cat to them Max!

    Congrats on your new Cat
    I was just at springfest of LX's and a guy came up and told me about "Mopars on the strip" in Vegas this weekend he said anyone that shows up with a Hellcat will get to race for free!!! He said everyone wants to see the Hellcats run. Wish I could make it to LV but can't. I will be running cal speedway in Fontana this summer for sure.

    Congrats, it is a great looking car. Drive the Cat for a couple of days and I bet you will like it a lot. I am a few years behind you, but I know what you mean, the car moves fast. Easy to drive, have fun at the strip, I am jealous, we are working through more snow now.

    Smells like a setup. Your 1st time at full throttle with an almost broke-in Hellcat, on street tires. Not enough time to practice your 0-60 launches. That is critical. Catching them down strip is all about the horsepower, but every Hellcat that loses seems to do it in the 1st 60ft. Good luck. Don't let anyone push you into bad decisions.

    Congrats and welcome to the delivered club. You will be frustrated at the drags with street tires. Find some Nitto 555R 305/20's quick before you go.

    Free drags for 2 days plus entrance to their car shows and cruises. Only save about $175.00 but that's not the reason I'm going. Want to show off the Red Beast. Drags not that important as I really haven't had time to practice as it's still being broken in but I am going to look for a spot, maybe in their empty parking lot, where I can do some launched to get ready. I will make sure I don't do anything stupid!
