    Just joined the forum as I recently purchased probably one of the last sublime green hellcat challengers new from a dodge dealer. The guy that ordered it didn't pick it up as it came with the M6 and he wanted the auto.

    But I will be searching through for tips and tricks and updating with pics soon.

    Thanks everyone.

    Initiall driving experience was ear to ear smiles. I only have 30 miles on it as I picked it up after working late and brought it straight home. So I have not spent much time in it yet.

    What's a good mileage before using the red key and getting into it pretty good? 500-1000 miles?

    • Drive with the engine speed less than 5,000 RPM.
    • Maintain vehicle speed below 70 mph (112 km/h) and observe local speed limits.

    Might I suggest that the moment you are comfortable with all the instruments, switches and your visual cues. thrash it a couple of quick times, change your underwear and do it again...:D
