    After waiting over a year I finally got in the game and ordered a 2016 Charger Hellcat when the order banks opened. Here in South Florida the dealers want way too much over sticker so I found an awesome dealer in Wisconsin that sold to me at MSRP. It just arrived at the dealer in Wisconsin and I'm flying up this Sunday to drive it back home over 1500 miles. The best part about it is my best friend of over 28 years who is also a gearhead is coming with me. A big thank you to RS and Hellcat2912 for all of the updates of the build process. I can't wait and the break-in is going to drive me nuts!! LOL

    Congratulations! Wow 1,500 miles and I thought I drove far at 1,100 miles. Share some pictures when you get a chance. Are you going to tape off the front with painters tape to help protect the paint from rock chips and etc?

    Congrats on pulling the trigger and traveling to get a good (MSRP) deal. Keep us posted on your journey. With two of you - should be easier to grab some photos along the way. Travel safe and enjoy. Did 1400+ miles when I picked up my 2013 SRT. Break-in comes quickly.

    Yes, I have been thinking about it and I am going to get a roll of painters tape for the front, it is a great idea!

    Fyi- halfway home I re-taped mine to make sure the heat of the engine didn't dry the tape/glue to fast and damage the paint or at minimum would leave any glue residue. You might want to do it three times like every 500 miles.

    Have a safe and fun trip home. If any if the tape does get stuck and leaves a residue on the car there is a product that will get it off and not harm your paint it is called Goo Gone you can get it at most dollar type stores. I used it and dental floss to remove the dealers sticker off our Hellbaby.
