    nothing limits your horsepower save the black key. When using the red key the only thing that limits the horsepower is your right foot.
    As the miles pile on I have 1900 on mine. You'll find the engine loosens up a bit and the exhaust gets louder.

    Yes have my 25 year old neighbor a ride he couldn't believe it was so fast I just went through the gears and kept him pined to the seat lol he loved it and thanked me for the ride. We live in a very small town and haven't seen any hellcats yet so I'm looking foward to meeting somebody around here that gets one . Having fun

    A) you get more comfortable driving it
    B) it gets faster
    C) it gets louder

    I have 1250 miles (in NJ) have never used the black key and now drive it (M6) in Track mode about 75% of the time. Its a riot to drive.

    And my local Police Officer gave me a "thumbs up" today from his cruiser!!!

    I started running it hard after the break in period (~1500 miles) but I couldn't resist a wide open on ramp or two during that time. I now have 4000+ miles on my Charger (in PHX). I haven't noticed much difference in the car. I just had my first oil change. I drive it almost everyday. I only use the red key. I have driven it pretty well split between 707 hp with street trans and econ modes. I switch to track trans when I give rides though which has been fairly often. Other cars are pretty much ruined for me now. And I still grin when I crank the car on.
