    Hi Guys and Girls,

    As of last Friday 3/25 I joined the Hellcat club. What a club it is! Needless to say, I was impressed by the power, build quality and handling of my new Challenger Hellcat. And to think that I almost "settled" for an SRT 392. Not that it would have been a bad choice, still a great car, but just not a Hellcat.

    My dealer called and told me that they had a Silver Challenger on the floor - loaded - with sunroof, black Laguna leather, etc. etc. I think the only things not on the list were the engine block heater (I don't need) and the red seat belts (I don't care for). I almost passed on the car but my wife took a look at the photo and twisted my arm. She reminded me, "You won't regret the things that you do, only the things that you don't do."

    I am no stranger to track events, ran in the advanced group at Willow Springs track events with both of my previous rides, an '03 Mustang Cobra modded for improved braking, handling and extra power, and subsequently my C6 Z06 Corvette. It has been an automotive progression up to the Hellcat.

    The build quality and power are remarkable. I am looking forward to learning all that this outstanding vehicle has to offer and hearing your experiences with your SRT's as well as getting to know the members here.

    Robin

    Welcome and congratulations on your cat. Sounds like you have an awesome wife. Did you get the M6 or A8?

    The best part about your your buy is that it's already broken in. So take it easy and take care yourself and that car. Congratulations and from one hellcat owner to another rock on
