    Well after many ups and downs my car was built last Tuesday passed inspection and was sent to storage and is now in JS Hell with no ETA's. I did very briefly have an ETA of 9/19. SRT has told me it could be up to 8 weeks if the car is shipping by train. I found out from the dealer that all of his previous Hellcats were shipped via truck. He most recently had one in KZ with no change for 2 weeks until it showed up at the dealership unannounced on Tuesday of this week. FCA has completed fouled up this entire process for everyone and the fact that they cannot even ship a built car to the dealer in a reasonable time period is completely unacceptable.

    Does anyone have any insight into how long this typically lasts until a car is shipping once in JS Hell?

    Mine stayed in JS for 2 months, but that was in the beginning before anything shipped quick.

    Could very well have been picked for a complete secondary inspection. I remember another forum member stating that his was also picked for this process and a special sticker was placed under the hood near the latch. How long in JS?. Don't recall...good luck and hope your HC arrives soon;)

    Mine was built 8/25 and has been stuck in "I" (Pending Inspection) ever since. Just to further rub salt in the 9/9/14 wound I think.
