    I got my new challenger last Monday and I have been running around busy since. Thought I would pop in and post three pics I have. I am in Aurora, Colorado for anyone around. I have been driving it at 500hp during break in and even that is fun! First part of break in is almost done with 476 miles on her. I have to admit I cranked it up once to 700+ HP just to feel that pull love it! First pic was from dealer as I was picking it up. The second and third pic was while I was coming out of store I had parked on the side away from everyone and came out and a RT came over and parked by me that made me smile. I look forward to seeing everyone on the road.

    500hp? what's that? lol.

    even in 700 hp mode, you are only going to tap into the 700 if you mash it. Watch the HP gauge while you are driving, rarely will you see anything above 300 (unless you are getting on it) and when you are cruising at highway speeds you are using like 20hp. My advice, keep it in 700hp mode and let your foot be the control....what if some bandits like in Mad Max come rolling up on you, you aren't going to want to take the time to switch to 700hp mode, you'd just want to mash it and flip them off as you become a dot on the horizon:)

    Haha...When you mash that Right pedal, keep your eyes on the road ahead...not on the HP gauge... You don't want to end up as a bug splatter on the back of a concrete truck.

    Congrats on the Hellcat!

    Went to lunch the other day and two guys were pointing and looking at a new Challenger R/T in parking lot when I idled by and caught their attention. Funny to see two grown men go immediately quiet and start drooling down the front of their shirts!

    Sweet choice - congrats on your new ride. Lived in Aurora, CO from 94-01 - what a nice area. Once you hit 500 miles its time to crank that HC up on E-470. Enjoy the smiles per gallon Glenn !!!

    Nice, congrats on the hc. Which dealer did you get it from? I'm in Highlands Ranch, I'll keep an eye out for you on the road...here's my hc, I'm sure I'll see you around.
