    Read the break in procedures that come with every car.

    Also, did you get if for your magical 74K all in?

    Congrats on the new Hellcat. Read your Owners Manual. It has everything you need to know about the break in...

    "Each supercharged Hemi is dyno-tested for 42 minutes for loads up to 90% at 5,200RPM."

    Sometimes I wonder about the break in procedure...
    However, if I purchased brand new I certainly would follow it !...

    Congrats on getting one.
    Did you get the A8?
    Post a pic if you can.
    The car is fun even breaking it in. But it does beg you to play. Oh that noise.
    Sorry mine's been sleeping for a month.
    Enjoy the hell out of it and be safe.

    Congrats on the Cat. Taking her home is one of the best feelings ever.

    I believe the break in procedure is there for you to get used to the power so as not to pull a mustang stunt. For the first couple of weeks I was terrified I'd get sideways if I hit the gas.

    Congrats!

    basics of break-in (painful as it might be) from memory...
    0-100 miles: 55mph max speed, less than 4000 rpm
    100-300 miles: 65 mph max speed, less than 4000 rpm
    300-500 miles: 85 mph max speed, limited short periods of WOT
    no track time until 1500 miles

    Welcome to the forum from VA

    Some things leave scars that you'll never forget!

    I find that very hard to believe unless you're posting USD figures. Post up the bill of sale then (black out your info) with the price of the car and tax....
