    Hello all
    Just purchased a used hellcat. 1000 miles. Green with black hood, nav, seats and manual trans.
    Going to fly into Detroit and drive home to Phoenix.
    Do these cars have any problems I should know about.
    Cheers
    Tom

    Hi Tom, and welcome to the forum! Grtz on getting a Cat, they have been very elusive for a several of our fellow forum members. There are few issues that some of the Cats have been having, quite a few of them are touched on in this section: SRT Hellcat TSB s SRT Hellcat Forum My suggestion would be to call the dealership before you leave and make certain that the fuel rail recall and radiator clamp recall have already been addressed before you fly out, so you cut down on any chances of a nasty surprise when you are on the trip home. I am certain lots of others will be posting some suggestions, if not tonight, then tomorrow. When do you fly to Detroit?

    April

    PS - I have had no issues with my Cat. :)

    Question
    From what I have sean on the trusty internet is that the engine is still making power at red line and has not leveled off. Can I get more power out of the engine. Has anyone had success?
    Thank you
    Tom

    Wait two weeks... fly into Detroit, do the Dream Cruise... and then you and I can convoy back to Arizona. I will be driving up next weekend and leaving Sunday after the cruise to come back. I mean if you are going to up there... why miss the cruise by one week?
