    I was polishing my new Challenger Hellcat this last weekend when a neighbor and his wife came by. They were not familiar with the reputation of the Hellcat. They ask me to start it up which I did. After starting it I goosed it a little and my neighbors about jumped out of there skin. They could not believe how aggressive the exhaust was. Dodge did a heck of a job with this exhaust system.

    My Charger HC serves as a friendly wake up reminder for the neighbor. He's let me know that when he hears it start up at 0600 that it's time to be up and moving.

    He gets it...he's got an out of commission:( Mustang 429 cobra jet in his garage due to failed engine rebuild.

    Lmao that's awesome. I did the same thing to my parents back in December. I goosed it when they were checking it out during Christmas, scared the crap out of my Dad. He wasnt expecting it to be so loud. They both loved the car, they both drove it several times during the Holidays, My Dad was a 1/4 mile racer back in the day, and the Hellcat blew his mind.

    My 2012 SRT Chally had the "Hearthrob" system which is aggressive, the 2015 Scat Pack had Flowmaster Super 10's and the Hellcat is more aggressive than both.

    One of my favorite "pranks" to pull off happens when someone who has never seen a Hellcat comes over to my home to check the car out. I have an attached garage which leads into the main part of my home. When they ask if I might start it up so that they can hear the "roar", I respond with "sure, wait here a minute and I'll go in and get the key". After I get in the house, I hit the remote start button and just wait for the roar. It's interesting to hear the verbal response elicited by someone who has no clue about what's to come! It's all in good fun, of course, and I guess one of those "impish" behaviors that some of us never outgrow! Given the limited supply of Hellcats, I think I'll probably be able to get a lot of "mileage" out of this prank. :cool:

    My neighbors are nice, Ned Flanders-like folk and I was talking to the husband about how I hoped the noise when I started it up wasn't annoying. I like these neighbors. He said it wasn't and got that kid-caught-doing-something-wrong look as he danced from foot to foot looking over his shoulder for his wife, asking if I could start it and rev it a little bit. I pulled out the Red Key and brought it to life (you don't 'start' a Hellcat) and he had the smile of glee on his face that only people who think saying 'heck' is obscenely vulgar can get.

    Know what would be a good thing on the key fob? A Rev button...

    I must admit that I may have accidentally "goosed" it while at a green light waiting to turn right. Some pedestrians were intentionally walking slow holding up traffic. I saw one of them jump when I goosed it lol

    I doubt my neighbors even notice. I live in Long Island. I have the Long Island RR 200' away, the planes going into JFK at 1500 directly over my house, and 1/2 of my neighbors can't speak English to complain to me anyway.
