    Talk about anticipation and can't wait to break the 500 mile to experience the real deal. It's like when you were a kid and going on your first date or maybe your 2nd,3rd,4th,5th .....etc. I mean come on lets get there sooner than later and that's what I have been working on since Thursday of last week when I picked her up late in the day. And I have been driving every day while working out of my car. And finally just about there. When I picked her up she had 2 miles on her. Worked all weekend and finished at 426 today. So for me it will be 5 days before she can show me the real package. And the holding back has been hard. I've had my share of the wanna bees antagonizing me but couldn't do anything.
    So I am curious to all aboard who got to 500 the fastest and the slowest. And keep in mind I don't know if it's as fair for the fastest if you drove 500 miles plus to actually pick up your car. And it's all good if you want to share but most interested in those who took delivery close to home

    Took me about 9 hours. And it's fair. A lot of people had to travel many many miles to get their Cat.

    I drove 1198 miles to bring my cat home. I don't understand why you don't think it's not fair just jump in your cat and start driving and don't stop until you exceed 500 miles. See anyone can do it ;)

    Picked the car up on a 2PM Friday... Checked the weather forecast clear for 3 days so at 4PM drove 3+hrs to visit may parents 214 miles... put another 60 on driving it around... next day drove to my sons place 120 miles... put another 50 on it while I was there, next day drove home 130 miles... So 500 plus miles in the first weekend. Can't beat Puffy's 9hrs tho!

    Picked up the car 9/14/15 with 3 miles on it. It has 140 on it now. So it looks like I should hit the 500 mile mark in about.....hmmm....March or April. Actually with the small amount of winter we get it may be, May or June.

    Very impressive and can tell we all have just an incredible automobile that only a few of the masses will enjoy. When driving the HELLCAT it' just puts a SMILE on your face:). And you just want to keep on going and going......etc. and I am sure all here can tell of a story of driving some other vehicle and u just can't wait to get out of it:mad:

    I'm at about 425. Purchased 4 days ago on Wednesday but was gone Sat and Sunday.

    Few questions, other than the launch control being disabled for the first 500 miles, are there any other restrictions programmed into the car? Like is the car "detuned" for the first 500 miles?

    Also, when should we get our first oil change? I read in the manual that the car tells you when to get oil changed but that freaks me out to wait for it to say so. Is 3,000 miles too long to wait for the first change? Wasn't sure if there was some special motor break in oil that has to stay in for x miles or something.
