    Who will be the first: To drift, spin, catch air (train crossing) or crop tour their Hellcat on a gravel road? I know it won't be me!!! Bet it will be a Texan with Jerry Jeff Walker cranked out on the radio at 2am!... Or some guy from California fumbling for his I-Pad...:p Tammie excluded...

    Us guys up north, will hit a deer/ moose or an ice patch/ igloo in July... ;)

    Here in the Canuck, we still have gravel road cops, who pride themselves on mud & rock chips in/ on their cruisers & front teeth!:confused:

    Yes, we have pavement! Well, I've seen it under the snow a few times...

    There are lots of dirt roads in northern Wisconsin. There are several brand new hellcats up there now.
    Maybe one of those guys. The stones in the dirts roads will chip the paint pretty bad.

    Dirt roads are like the bad part of town,,I didn't leave anything there, so there is no reason for me to be there...boy I just hear all the rocks coming from the all season tires hitting my car,, that makes me angry..

    yeah its crap, thats why we pay 50 cents per gallon ( almost) in gas tax. They can't even pave the roads.
    Seems like they are alway crying about not enough money for the roads.

    It was a tough decision on my current car, but I eventually did put the Mopar mud flaps on, and I will most likely do the same on the Hellcat

    I hate even getting trapped on gravel due to construction or a wrong turn with my current car. I would imagine that air filter getting choked up all that much faster living on a gravel road.

    First... To the OP... Thank you Canucks for building these things. As for Texas, we have some damn good roads here to really open one up. Check out Hennessy in a Vette on the Houston tollway.

    We actually live on a gravel road, we have to travel about a 1/4 mile from the asphalt highway to my house, but the gravel road has nice wide grass shoulders, so that last quarter mile we just idle along in 2nd gear on the grass, LOL
