    I'm trying to figure out how many members on this site have a Hellcat Charger or Challenger.

    My cat just spun the crankshaft in the crankshaft pulley last night. There have been a few others
    on this site with the same problem. I'm trying to get some idea of how many of these have happened
    per thousand or per hundred cars.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks to all!

    Thanks to everyone for posting. I sincerely hope that NONE of you have any issues and most certainly not a catastrophic one like some of us.

    I'm trying to arm myself with as much factual information as possible before I hear back from the Dodge folks about refunding or replacing this
    problem laden car.

    It would be helpful to know how many have had this problem vs how many have a car with a cat motor in it. I think there are five owners on this
    site with this same problem. If I knew how many others on this site have a Hellcat motor I could do some simple math to find a percentage of
    these cars having this problem. I'm sure Dodge knows a more accurate percentage then I'll ever come up with but the more correct information
    that I can have the better. Who knows, enough of a cost to Dodge maybe they'll issue a TSB and or recall to pin all cranks for anyone that wants
    it done.

    Thanks again to everyone.

    I have put 1440 miles on my Hellcat Challenger in the 6 days since I picked up the car. The only problem I have had so far is I can't stop giggling every time I get in and start driving. Never thought I would be lucky enough to actually get a car.

    1200 miles on mine but those were easy miles just getting her home from the dealer.

    Is your Cat bone stock? Were you at full throttle when it happened? I've heard about the problem before. Just wondering if the engines or tune had been modified from factory or if it happens to completely unaltered cars.

    Challengerfarmer...my car is bone stock other than the xpel protective film over the front end and the hood.

    I was not at WOT, in fact, I had just started the car and was trying to get out of the parking lot of a Lowe's home improvement center
    when the car went from "all systems normal" to what the heck this thing doesn't want to turn and I almost jumped a curb and hit another
    vehicle.

    I'm not sure if you can figure out who has a cat on this site, really need a census or something but I don't see how it would be possible to find out.

    Wow
    That should make all of us that have a Hellcat just a little nervous. Hope the factory comes out with a recall or already has the problem solved on newer cars and are maybe just warranting the rest as they happen.
