    Yes I expected to be disappointed...how could I not be...the bombast and hyperbole out of the car rags was clearly absurd, and I ordered the car without ever driving a challenger of any kind...and to be honest, I lean away from muscle cars; my car choices normally revolve around "light is right."

    So 6 hours after pick-up I feel as if I have been pummeled by the force of the hellcat. I explained it to a friend as driving...Lawrence Taylor. Fast and powerful...bordering on violent. Yet a team player.

    I did some miles, then got home in time to grab my wife and kids and head for ice cream and then a scouting BBQ. Want to feel like a star, pull up to a cubscout / boyscout event in a new hellcat. The fathers were as hooked as the kids.

    Thank you to those on the forum who welcomed, then guided and encouraged me in my purchase; I think I ended up with a great car and didn't lose my shit along the way. I waited for this car long enough to be frustrated with the process, but I know that I didn't come close to the wait time and frustration that many others have experienced. I wish those waiting a speedy delivery and a healthy dose of patience...it is painful but it seems worth it to me.

    If you see a granite challenger HC ripping around Westchester NY give me a flash of your lights and I will happily buy you the beverage of your choice.

    Keep the rubber on the road,

    now get Nitto's on the back and if you have an A8 do a 0-60 in 3.6 or less seconds......its an amazing feeling

    i wasnt impressed with the car fully until i tried 0-60's on a country road and saw what it can do.....amazing for a 4500lb brick
