    We are half way home.. Just under 300 miles today. The first hundred were excruciating, and fun at the same time. Our planned route included 100 miles of back country blacktop through north central Kentucky. That road was awesome, and would have been amazing without the 55 MPH limit. And then we got caught in construction traffic in Cincinnati, and a thunderstorm in Indianapolis. This car is amazing. The combination of fear and exuberance is impossible to put into words. For those of you that are considering giving up on your hellcat; wait.. it is worth it!

    Tomorrow brings the 500 miles mark.... And a car wash.

    My trip home was spent feeling out the car. It was about 350 miles and the first 75 or so was 2-lane 55mph country road. However, on that stretch I hit 93mph in a passing situation.

    It that pitch black? Looks nice, congrat's on a great car. More and more dragstrip and dyno results confirm, black is the fastest color; So don't be afraid to shift fast, and keep the hides smolderin' through second.

    I love this 55 MPH 500 mile break in rule from SRT....... Good Lord some states have 85 MPH speed Limits.... Gonna think something is wrong with the driver operating a Ferocious beast at 55 mph in a 70-75-80 zone..... Congrats on the HC tho.. Black is just sinister.

    Yeah, If I'd followed the 55/500 routine I'd be splattered all over I75. Most of my break-in was with the cruise set on 79.
