    Well today went well , my sales guy called me said we've got a new bright white A8/ Brass monkey in here guy won't call him back . Deal was at msrp as was my billet m6 . Apparently the gentleman who ordered this one had three others ordered in Ohio and I'm guessing the other ones came in before ! After about 10 seconds of thought and the offer for my used one I said yes . Long story short m6 got old shifting down the track and I walked away with 4 grand more than what I paid for it , only negative that came out of this is that I've gotta start break in all over again ......

    So what was the main reason to go with the A8? Are you driving it at the track a lot? I just ordered mine and and second guessing the M6...

    so you got a brand new car for msrp and traded in your old HC for $4k over msrp (which you paid msrp for)

    so you made $4k profit????

    Ask StellasHC about why he is trading in his M6 for an A8?

    Are you kidding me? After all the crazy banter between you 2 in the early spring. I'm very surprised.

    Pretty tough to launch the m6 I think , before I took the car to the track I had issues with the clutch and flywheel . At 1200 miles it was shot had to get fixed after that It's never been the same . IMO there is to much that can go wrong with the manual with that much power . I plan on adding power down the road and from what I gather the A8 is a beast . I don't track a ton , main reason for switch is I think the auto will hold the power better . If you just like cruising around the city and back roads the manual was a blast .

    Yes sir I couldn't believe it either , it's odd because my dealer has a used m6 sitting in the showroom . And now my billet , plus a new B5 m6 coming in 5-6 days that is unspoken for .

    yep..........he's a drag racer....and the M6 HC isnt as good of a drag racer as the A8 is.......with the value of used HC's being what it is its the best time to swap......and maybe even break even

    I haven't driven a manual in years. Always missed it and thought I'd miss it with this one as well but I knew it was the smartest choice for me.

    Haven't missed it at all! This thing is awesome. Soft when you want it and bangs the gears like a pro when you feel froggy.

    StellasHC clutch failed on him just when he got a 1.8 60 foot........He said the clutch was going before that final launch....The Hellcat clutch is a weak point......No one has or is making a replacement clutch that can hold the Hellcat power....StellaHC is not waiting around for that to "maybe" happen.....
