    I decided to break in the new Hellcat with a 300 mile road trip this weekend, as well as visit my mother. I can easily say it was the most comfortable, enjoyable, road trip I've ever taken.The car drives and shifts smooth as butter ( I have a manual ). IMAG0781.jpg I also kept the speed below 80 for a nice break in on the new car. If there are some technical readers out there I was considering dumping the oil now that it has a little over 400 mi., I took this picture of the emblem on the fender and got the pearl effect. Love my new Hellcat!, Bradley

    Beautiful color! From all I have read and discussed, I plan on changing the oil at 500 miles the first time then regular intervals. It has been mentioned to check oil regularly during break in because it may use some during break in.:) Congrats! I get mine tomorrow, I have a 300 mile trip to Oregon planned on Tuesday!

    Oh, I am sure I will be posting from the dealership tomorrow. I spend enough time there that I connect to their wi-Fi and hang out in break room! :D I have to wait for 4 hour detail and prep!
