    Going to pick this beast up tomorrow very excited! anything you guy's can advise for break-in etc? car only has 700 miles, automatic, technically used but brand new in my eye's, also I know this will sound silly but the yellow front spoiler guards at the corner's of the front spoiler when car is delivered to the dealer can anyone advise if I can get a pair from the dealer or once they have been taken off that's it gone? Thanks for all the advise.

    Since it's used I doubt the dealer will have any of the splitter guards. They only come new from the factory.

    With 700 miles she's all broken in. Drive it like you stole it.

    I advise my customers who buy them and what I did with mine was I used the black key until I had 1500 miles on it. As far as the yellow guards. When we receive ours they are already removed at the rail head before they are delivered to us. Could be the trucking company we use from rail head to our location removing them to check for damage.

    I do sell them on eBay. But I ask 500 under MSRP.

    Congrats on the purchase-I would check for oil seepage in cooler lines and change oil if you aren't certain it has been done with 0-40 mobil 1 or Pennzoil ultra and an SRT or mobil 1 filter. Have fun these cars are ridiculous!

    Mine where removed during Dealer prep. I later requested the Service Mgr to save me a set from another car coming in which he did for me. I also believe I saw a previous post stating these guards had a Chrysler part number & may be available thru your Parts Mgr.

    All of the features are fully functional at 500 miles, your good to go.
    I wouldn't track the car until 1,200-1,500 miles
    The break in of the powertrain is posted and I can try and find it.

    OK boy's I brought this angry cat home! I have the brake and gas pedal stainless cover's haven't attempted to put on looks like just a flathead to manipulate over the pedal's? What else can you all advise as to how to drive this uncaged cat, red key fob in sport/track? I am not going to track it but I do want crazy lower end shifting and off the line power.

    So far I haven't tried anything but the red key. My custom setting, for now, is sport suspension, track transmission, and street traction. The track transmission gives real solid upshifts and revs a little higher than default. Sounds like that's what you're looking for.

    Look at your top speed page and let me know what it reads. (Arrows up and down and left side of steering wheel) Picked my TorRed cat on 5-11-16 up and it said 191 MPH.
