    I was pondering on this and it’s a little old school, but what if we as a group sent an e-mail to a single individual about what is really going on with this 2015 Challenger Hellcat roll-out. Our target would be either an individual at Chrysler/Dodge/SRT or an individual reporter that reviewed the Hellcat these last few months.
    Here me out…
    We as a group would create a Template or boilerplate to send to an individual. It has to be a professional looking e-mail. It has to be cordial. Start our stating there seems to be a lack of communication between SRT-Dealers- Customer service and the consumer. Now, the contents would include such items as:

    1) Ordered HC’s since July and still no VIN#
    2) Change in build status with no explanation
    3) Multiple delays all around with no explanation
    4) Mention VOTS has been down since April
    5) Etc…..just add topics, not too specific…

    Then we finally end the e-mail on the frustration of not knowing officially; because it not only impacts our life financially but also impacts our lives in planning for future events.

    Then state, we understand unforeseen delays with vendors and rail schedules etc….

    What do you think? All these e-mails sent to specific people should have an impact; instead of an individual e-mail; which can be ignored. If it’s to a reporter, I’m sure we would have an impact on SRT on a Public Relations standpoint.

    I'm all for the email, Only thing I would change is how we word the deposit part, Most of us put deposits down way before the order banks even opened

    I
    I think it is a moot point now. Sounds like a little quality control is resolved and will send soon! Build more and get caught up...

    The problem I have is I work for corporate and we do build by last second inventory...... very frustrating. If its the next best thing, as promoted by corporate, then supply it!! (but they are not the Hellcat)

    Wont say who i work for but i have seen this kill product launches the last few years. Funny thing is you all don't know what those products are because they f'ed up the launch. But now we have to see 5 months of test drives, vin one sold on Barrett Jackson, and every Tom Dick and Harry drive one but US.. Ship the S.O.B's!!!!

    Dam I keep trying to talk myself out of this adventure, but I keep coming back here and getting pissed-off.

    Rant on, I am out.

    Isn't that funny the people that get to drive these things that have no money down. I know a small diner owner by me that got to drive one. Since they can't supply us our cars, bring in all the prototypes and distribute them around to dealers, call the people that have orders and money down, let them all have a test drive. It might appease the frustrated purchasers for awhile

    There are 2 Dodge dealers in Madison and I think only 1 of them is getting a Hellcat. It was sold way before I even went in to talk with them. Same guy the Hellcat who bought the first 08 they had and he has a Drag Pak car.
