    After almost 11 Months since deposit, I finally got my Cat. As many others have said, this car is worth the wait!! I have yet to go over it with a fine tooth comb, but the fit and finish is fantastic. This first 500 miles is going to be an exercise in patience, even with the reduced power. The only thing I am not too impressed with is the sound system. Maybe there are some settings that need fine-tuning that I haven't found yet, but the factory Alpine in my 2014 Ram Sport sounds MUCH better. I have removed all of the badging except for the DODGE between the tail lights, and pinstriped the wheels. Amazing how de-badging it has made people ask me if it's an R/T, a 392 or what. Bottom line is this car is a blast to drive and its power must be respected! A big thanks to BB and the crew that built Rocket, you did a fine job. And of course Resume Speed has been a fantastic asset to this forum, and was spot-on along the way! Donate and donate often.....

    Thanks, I'm digging it too! Got the idea from my V-Rod, it's flat black with the red stripes on the black wheels.

    Car looks great,, you picked the fastest color...btw, be prepared for everyone asking if it's a hellcat..I got asked by six people this weekend if it was a hellcat..one guy even challenged my answer,, saying it don't say hellcat,, and wanted to know if I just put the motor in,, and asked where the supercharger is..Funny part is that it was a car show and he was driving some kind of hot rod.. The nerve of people..either way, you picked the best color

    I'll just act stupid and tell them "I think it has a 6.2L something in it, not really sure. Just saw it on the lot, thought it was cool and bought it"
