    Hi all,

    I've done some lurking and like the vibe around here. Some of you who may have crossed over from LXForums might remember me. Regardless, wanted to jump back in now that I picked up my Sublime Challenger yesterday. Hoping for better luck this time. Quick recap for those that don't know what I mean...

    06 SRT Magnum, my car became the testbed for SRT Engineering when they flew Jeremy Anker out to program my car to fix an issue we all had with the 1-2 shift at WOT (it would "act" like it was hitting redline and the engine would cut power for a pause, then kick back in). Thankfully it fixed all of our cars. Kept it for about 4 years and bought a GT500 to go alongside it.

    Then we tried our luck again, this time with an SRT Challenger in B5 Blue. Sexy as hell, but had a recurring issue with the 6.1 stalling if you were braking and turning to the right. No dealer, nor SRT was able to do anything about it. Traded it off because I was afraid my wife would get killed in it one day if it stalled turning off a street.

    Now we picked up our Sublime Hellcat yesterday. I am very excited about it. It doesn't "feel" as powerful as it is, but it is a real beast. The fluid power delivery and the fact that it doesn't "squat" under WOT makes it feel less powerful, or at least less dramatic. Hating the crappy low volume of the Harmon Kardon system, but hopefully there will be a fix for that (I see it is an issue with many owners).

    Hey, how'd you get my Sublime and black hood? :cool: There's been some mistake! :D

    Congrats, great car & great color combo. Your combo was my first choice but I couldn't pull it off. I did land my second choice! Both of us, and a few others here, took delivery yesterday.

    Had, and sold, a 2014 GT500. Did a Revan Racing Stage 13-6 package. Was a great beast but I can only run one toy beast at a time at the moment.

    Enjoy!

    Wait your Hellcat doesn't feel as fast as your 6.1? Did I read that correctly? And I recognize the Magnum from the LX forums. Welcome!
