    Factoid from this months SRT Technology article. Interesting if you have both keys;

    “The black key limits horsepower — that’s it,” said Jim Wilder, Dodge Challenger SRT Vehicle Development Manager. “There is still full functionality of everything else on the car.”

    When a driver starts the car, the vehicle recognizes which key they have in their possession. If the driver has both keys, the car by default will recognize the red key. Once one key has been used, the car must be turned off if the driver wants to use the other key.

    I hadn't asked yet, but was wondering about having both keys in the car with you. I really don't plan on ever valet parking my Hellbaby, but I thought about having it with me on that slight possibility. I am thinking the black key will probably sit in a drawer somewhere and then I will forget where I put it...,maybe I will use it for the first 500 miles so I behave, NOT! LOLo_O

    I will use the red key very sparingly. Bet money that if a cop stops you and you have the red key in you will get a ticket. Sure hope not.

    the valet mode can be accessed from both the black and red key fobs... from the touch screen.... it can be reset to off or default by un hooking the battery for a few min... the black key only limits the kitty to 500hp.. or in my case my 73 yr old dad to 500 hp ;)

    I heard that. I also read you can drop it to 300 HP. I can't think of who might drive my car, but if by some weak moment I let someone drive it, I would drop it down as low as possible. :D

    Yes there is a valet mode in the touch screen console which limits rpm to 4000, limits any ability to turn off functions and traction control, it is locked by a 4 digit pin code you set and unlock to get all features back when you get it back from the valet
