    Hi all,
    Im a new member here, ordered my Hellcat Challenger back in December and waiting on delivery. No news from the dealership yet on when i can expect delivery.

    I am wondering if any current hellcat owner(s) are open to the idea of a ride along? I have done a lot of research on them but have yet to experience its actual brutality :)

    So if any one is open to the idea id really appreciate it. I am of course open to compensating for it.

    Cheers

    Z

    Forgive me if you've posted elsewhere.......Did your dealer provide you with a VIN#? If so.....there are a couple of wonderful members who can provide you with status updates....including shipping. The main source is "Resume Speed" or "RS" as members refer to. The only reason I say this.....I had a sizable down payment for a Hellcat order since last summer. I bailed on that when I found one freshly delivered to a dealers lot. I had never received any updates as to my status. Buyer beware!

    I didnt receive a vin. I put down 10K to secure the deal so far but yeah i was assured i can back out at any point. Im planning to visit the dealer tomorrow and ask for an update in person.

    I ordered mine from the Downtown Toronto dealership.

    Similar situation I was in......until you get further build information.....especially a VIN#.......you don't have any idea of delivery date. Unfortunately some fellows have patiently waited for a year plus with no indication of when their order would be filled.

    Don't mean to be a bummer......but I sat for months with zero indication of the order being picked up by FCA. You'll definitely have to be your own advocate in this deal......otherwise....who knows how long it will take.

    I think there is a misunderstanding here. Im not worried about the driving dynamics. I have owned a few fast cars.
    Its just i have waited a while and yet to actually even see one outside an event scenario. It would be great to at least experience it for once, would make the wait more intoxicating after having a sip :) lol

    Thanks for the insight. Ill definitely have a discussion with the GM at my dealership. He was quite certain at the time i ordered i should expect delivery in 6 months. But I had no idea what that was based on.

    The dealer has to be instructed by FCA that they, the particular dealer, have open allocations for orders. The dealer can then place the order(s) and will receive feedback from FCA in the form of a VON and soon after a VIN. Without that feedback from FCA.......you and your money are just sitting on a list in space. The same situation I and many others had been stuck in.

    No worries... your concern does bring out a point though. I think a lot of HC owners would benefit from a say HC driver academy. I worked with GM marketing a while and ran a Cadillac Driver Academy, mainly CTS-vs at the time. The owners loved it as it taught them a lot about the cars and how they actually behave when pushed hard. I wish there were more job opportunities here in Canada with FCA. Id love to work on things like this again.

    That makes a lot of sense. Im going to ask specifically if they have received any news from FCA and if there is a VON. By the way what does VON stand for? Sorry if thats a noob question. If not i think i might consider a the SRT 392 at this point.

    Off the top of my head, von is v vehicle order number which is basically useless... Once you get a vin then it's going to be a real car
