    After reading the post about 8 speed Automatics are no longer an option, I am only sure of one thing now. Nothing has changed things keep changing. From the start of the Hellcat purchase it has been a road of changing lanes and weaving in an out of traffic. If it is true about the auto option, that would throw a wrench in the system for me, because I am licensed to drive only automatics with hand-controls because of a logging accident in 1999. So for me I will keep my faith in Dodge and look at this as a mistake in the Dodge web-site until I am told differently by my Dodge dealer. Peace Grease and outrun the Police.:cool:

    Hi Abe. Yeah I called my Dodge Dealer and he said he didn't get a memo saying anything about the automatic being discontinued :)

    I ordered an auto but changed it when I was in C status. I just couldn't get myself trust the first year 8 speed in this high Hp platform.. I know too much about this driveline and its tolerance's which is why the 6 speed all day long.

    I agree But, I cannot drive a stick because of my accident. My pro-charged 6.1 Hemi has over 600hp at the flywheel and the tranny has never given me any problems yet. I drive it hard a lot of the time. And if they were built for 825hp then 707 should be a walk in the park for em.

    That would be a deal breaker sorry to hear that. Hope your doing better buddy ...
    You where lucky that hp bump usually needs a Viking trans behind it. Anything over 600 rwhp on the stock tranny is iffy at best .

    Im gonna sit in my lawn chair and watch the show the next few years cuz I know for a fact the improvements they did are substantial but to what limits.
    I was on for an auto as well via traffic etc but woke up one morning in a cold sweat and changed

    Yeah all is good and once again thanks. Yes the Hellcat will be the perfect drug. You know sometimes it is kinda funny when I am racing and we stop to talk to the other driver,They have no idea I drive with hand-controls and when I jump out of my Challenger into a wheelchair they are stunned. LOL. I never let it slow me down. 162mph is my top speed to date. If I had more road here in Pa. I could run it past the 180mph on the dash.:cool:

    Where a big family plain and simple you new owners will see that real fast among the older owners.
    Melvin has a great attitude I can tell he is and has been to the top of the mountain..

    Its time Melvin gets a good rest and the treatment he deserves from this community and Dodge!
    Life too damn short ..

    I've seen buddy's give motors,blowers,drivelines,etc.. to friends who needed them to keep them in the game . Ive seen the good side of people and the bad.. I stick with a solid crew!
    Mopar really means family to many!
    Melvin you need anything hit me up buddy!
