    So, I decided to edit this thread as I can't drive the Nurburgring yet. However, that will come. I will be posting more videos of me driving my Cat on the Autobahn. It is what I came back over to Europe to do. I love my car, so do most of you, but driving it to it's max is what I came to do here. Enjoy everyone and please request things....I'll try my best.

    I will be making a vid of the Ring eventually....it will happen. When I do, I will post a thread pertaining to that experience only.


    Lastly, here is my disclaimer:


    I didn't buy my Hellcat to sit and be pretty in a garage. If you did that, that is awesome and I applaud your choice. I bought it to drive the hell out of it here in Germany. Some might question how/why I do this or that, but really that is why we are all individuals. If you're on this site, you bought your Hellcat for your reasons as did I.


    I won't talk trash about why, even if I disagree with what you do. Please respect my choices as well. If you don't like that I plan to drive at speed and not drag race.


    Okay.


    But, don't be a hater, a-hole or some other silliness, as I don't want to deal with "Tommy, the Internet Tough Guy" on here. I think we are all mature enough to respect this. It sucks that I feel the need to write this, but people are people.


    Thanks and more posts to follow.

    Going to watch this Batman versus Superman: Dawn of Justice...however, I will have a clip of the HC on the Autobahn when I get back.

    It is my first video, so as I am not an editing expert yet...don't be too harsh...LOL!

    It'll be up in the next 4 hours.


    -Edit....

    It took me a little longer than 4 hours....got tired. LOL! But the video is up now.

    (Regardless of video or not..)

    You're not slow. I can't drive it on the track this weekend because they have an event, and there are no Tourist Rides (open track when you can drive your car on it) yet. However, I will have my car there and will have video up of the HC on the Autobahn going there and back. The Ring is later....

    I hope that cleared that up....

    Disappointing by the title, but have fun anyway.

    I need to work on my video capturing skills, but here is the Autobahn gentlemen. I only managed to get up to 164mph, but finding a straighter stretch is all that is needed there.....it's around town, I'll find it and post a better video. Let me know what you think besides the wind noise obviously. Around 5 mins in you will start to see the aero begin to visibly take its toll on the car with drag (obviously it is happening earlier too).

    All I can say is this car is amazing to drive the way it was intended to be driven, whenever I feel the inclination to hit the gas. Love it!

    Go for it Skittles. All looks legal and fun, be safe please.

    I put my camera inside. Does two things, cancels the wind noise so we can hear the car better and you can include speedo or one of the other displays to demonstrate the speeds. Camera outside and we just see a road and the wind noise gets different.

    Wtf, I need to go out and verify the back of the hood has that much play or is that our paper thin hood just attempting to suck itself up? Wow, what an interesting look at the hood beginning to rise at speed. Must be some unbelievable low pressures going on up there, or it is blowing in the front scoop and helping force it up a little. Wow! Damn, on our track we hit 150-160 every two minutes and that happens, wow!

    very cool video showing what is happening to the hood. As DGatzby suggested, an inside camera location would let that sweet sweet engine/supercharger whine be heard....but was so cool seeing that hood flex WOW!!!!!!

    Nice. I want to hit the highway and legally hit 150+ on my speedo. I have to do it illegally here.

    I will definitely try to do your suggestion for speed verification and to have better sound. Thank you for suggesting that...yeah, with the wind noise I didn't think the video would be appreciated...but that hood lift is very interesting to see...lol. I look forward to making and posting more video

    The hood seemed to flex more than most but understand why it happens. Just a bit scary the first time I saw it! Looked like it was going to blow off...
