    Personal experience, when you do get your Hellcat and your not used to the analog speedometer (0-200 mph), keep your speed in the digital mode on the DID, especially in the city. Try keeping 25 mph in a school zone while a radar gun is pointed at you ( its bad enough reading the analog scale on a 0-180 mph speedometer). I know its obvious, but I thought I would throw that out there….

    I do that in my Charger and agree with you 100%. The only draw back is I get annoyed when someone in front of me is driving 18 in a 20, (our children walk slower) I mean...COME ON! 20 kills me and this person is 2 under! argghhhhh! If I wasn't in digital display I probably wouldn't get so annoyed. o_O

    Tammie, Tammie, you're wired kind tight aren't you:confused: Those people are my fraternity brothers:D It's not me though, I'm pushing 26 mph. We have to be cautious around the kiddies though. You never know what they are going to do.

    Oh, I agree 100% this is more about the fact that the digital display shows exact speed and 20 is plenty respectable. Anything under is overkill and the digital display just jumps out where the dial doesn't really affect you the same way. Just an observation. I can promise you, I don't EVER speed in school zones and I am always careful when kids are around. Time and place are critical factors in all Hellcattery! :)

    I always thought those double flashing yellow lights meant "floor it!". I know that's what the single solid yellow light means at an intersection! :D

    The analog is hard to read so I set my top center display to be digital all the time (it is nice to be able to re-arrange the dash to personal taste). Compass on the left and outside temp on the right.

    The center display top may be a bit smaller than the larger digital display but I like to keep the big area for oil pressure gauge.

    Right on! I was just giving you a hard time:):):) I get as frustrated as you do. I don't get why even dinosaurs like me can't at least drive the speed limit in any speed zone under 50 mph. The answer is some people really aren't qualified to be driving. Scary thing to those of us that push the envelope, and ride bikes.

    I have my cluster set up to always display my digital speed at the top of the screen.

    I run with coolant temp on and the digital speedometer shows up just above it.:D
