    well my buddy who has a scat drove me to get my cat, on the way home we drove in tandem and were cruising on highway and ripped by a trooper he got a ticket for 1500 doing 90 and change.. feel bad but coulda been worse.. typical paint imperfections, jacked up taillights and tons of rubbing compound all over back of car.. top speed was 196??? dealer couldnt have done it i was there for pda, car had 14 miles. 196 top speed from dyno at factory?? or driver?? also what is this plastic bag?? was empty in glove box(keys mabye)?? ill psot more in the morning but the dealer is getting new rear panel and tail light assemblies as they agreed they were awful, still bought it tho.. i could go on but dont wanna be to picky.. but you guys werent kidding these things are freaking animalistic..

    That's crazy the top speed is 196mph! I'm not sure what the factory does before shipping. My HC Charger said 85mph when I picked it up which I wasn't happy to see; now it says 160. My dads Challenger read 92mph when he picked it up! I had a small bag like that, but mine had a small rubber pad in it???

    Had to find that little baggy as I was wondering what it was for. I was mistaken, as its different from yours. What I was thinking of is for the License Plate Install, the pad goes on the back of the license plate to protect the bumper. So I'm not sure what yours is for.

    Mine is for the back of my front license plate as front plates are optional here in Arizona.

    The 196 is must likely a factory ecm thing,, last year when we started getting our cars there were a few with high numbers like that,I would not think twice about it,, unless you live in the desert you not getting to that speed in ametropolitan area.please enjoy the car

    congrats on your new ride, don't worry about the 196 MPH no way it ever happened, maybe on the dyno at the factory but I doubt it.
    rubber on the fender, well that was probably some dumb sh*t at the dealer should not have happened but it did.

    you buddy needs a good weasel to go into court and get the fine reduced ( weasel I mean lawyer):eek::eek::eek:

    jaque Congratulations. Don't worry about the 196. A lot of Cats had spurious numbers like this for top speed. Keep it though. Be cool to show people down the line

    Congrats!
    Break it in and then drive it like you stole it.
    The 196 gives you a goal to reach for
