    One of the things I have enjoyed most about owning a Hellcat is the reaction my friends and family have when I take them for their first ride. I've had mine since Jan 8th and my girlfriends brother has been DYING to go for a ride. He was finally able to make it up this past weekend so off we went. After making a pass to make sure no police were around, I turned the car around and opened her up. I took her all the way up to 153mph and got 3 "Holy s***!!!'s and one "G*** D***!!!" within a few seconds. Around the time we passed 120mph, he grabbed the "Oh S***" handle above the passenger door and didn't let it go until we got home, even when doing under 25mph through the neighborhood. I was starting to think I was going to have to pry his hand off the handle. :D:D Needless to say, he was MORE than impressed with the power. DAMN I love these cars!

    HA! No. The only person that's driven it besides myself and the guy that took it off the truck, is my Dad. And he never got over 60. He was a little afraid of the power. :D

    I let a couple people drive it. Not car people so they weren't that excited. But my wife, I told her to take it one day by herself. She let it eat going out the driveway. Sounds awesome from outside the car.

    I took my boss for a drive. Haven't got a bit of shizzy from her since. She was the holding on for dear life and trying to pretend to smile one. ;) Pretty much lets me do what I want now and asks me if I was at the track or practicing launches after every weekend!:D:D She asks if we can take my car every time we have a meeting together. LOL I thinks she is addicted to the Hellcat tire shred. ;)

    I had a 9 year old in the back of mine yesterday out on country road. Stopped just long enough to get rev it a little and then pulled off a 5.0 0-60. He was all smiles and kept shouting "this is the best day of my life!". His dad told me today that they are going to have to surgically remove the permanent grin from his face.

    Went out one night to set the world land speed record with a friend along. Had to shut it down! The guy about twisted himself into a pretzel and made me nervous over about 100. I set my current top speed alone last week, I don't need all the squeezing shouting and crap from the passenger as I am enjoying myself.

    Best passenger was our Risk Manager also a Mormon Bishop. Turned into a very long acceleration ramp followed by a long runout to an interstate. Looked over and said are you ready? Not a peep until shutdown of my choice...all I heard was WOW.

    I am in the mid 140's now. I did it after I pulled a quarter timing etc after installing the Speedlogix trailing arms the other night.

    I've hit 158 so far. Just not enough road anywhere that I feel comfortable enough to do it without the fear of getting thrown under the jail...
