    Did the SRT Track Experience, yesterday 11/15, at Fontana, CA. I really enjoyed it and got to meet other SRT owners and forum members...MVAF, 1 Sick Veilside and MoparConvert. too. I know the current format will end soon as big changes are coming for 2016. I would just like to acknowledge the entire SRT road crew for their hospitality and overall professionalism. Got to drive Vipers, HC Challengers..both M6 and A8, 392 Chargers/Challengers and SRT Grand Cherokees. A very positive experience and I hope all of those getting SRT vehicles in the future can attend for whatever is being planned for 2016.:D:D:D

    Sounds like a great time buddy! my question to you is how much faster does the Viper feel over the HC?

    We really didn't a chance to go WOT...at least not very long, so hard to tell. The Viper seemed "clunkier" and not a smooth as the HC...could also be the difference in suspensions I suppose. Drove the M6 HC...I have the A8. Although the M6 was fun, I am glad I got the A8

    On the road course we did at TMS you couldnt go WOT either. The best run I was able to get was in an A8 Hellcat boxed in by two staff drivers. That time I was able to slide through some corners. Otherwise the lead driver goes so slow that you really can't tell which car would be faster. I did my Hot Lap in the Viper and that was at least 15 miles an hour faster in the speed sections than the average run.
    What was a surprise was that because of the AWD the Jeep was faster than the 392 in the autocross.
