    Where to begin...expected to have the cat at the dealer last Monday , then it was delayed to the 26th, then the 29th.

    Got a text from my dealer yesterday with a picture of my HC. She came early!

    I couldn't sit still waiting for them to prep and inspect the car. Got the green light to come down...

    Couldn't keep the smile off my face when I saw the car initially... and I was just giggling like a school girl as I got into boost when we went to gas her up... The car had 9 miles on delivery and it was over 100 mph shortly after that.

    Unfortunately the car had .5 miles of break in before I opened it up (did get it to operating temps).... I gave it the good old college try.

    The overall package is super impressive...not just the power but the tranny and suspension and technology. Seats were very comfortable and the ventilated seats will get some good use in this humidity.

    I was surprised how stiff the suspension was but it was set in track mode... Haven't had a chance to play around with all the settings yet and hoping to put some good miles on her later today and this week.

    I'll report back when I get more seat time. For all of you still waiting...it's one hell of a car and I hope you get yours soon.

    On to the pics!

    Congratulations, NextPhase on getting your cat! I can see in your little boys eye, that he is just as excited and can't wait to get behind the wheel in 10 or so years. He's thinking Hell Yea!
    Enjoy and glad the wait is over for you.

    Congrats...and yes suspension in track mode is brutal. Play around with the SRT settings and find a combo or 2 that work for you. Nice pix and looking forward to hearing about your HC discoveries!!

    Track mode is firm but FAR from brutal.

    It is brutal if you have a full bladder...so if planning on using track mode, make sure you use the restroom beforehand;)

    Congratulations!!! A day that will always be remebered by you and your son. If you consider what childhood memories are etched into your brain...this would definitely be one (especially with the fantastic Sublime to bring extra wide eyed wonder!).

    Brutal suspension...Gen 4 Viper has a brutal suspension at all times. On the street it feels like they yanked the suspension off of a NYC hot dog cart. Hellcat set in "calm" is relatively old skool "floaty".
