    Just got back from Charlotte today from the SRT Experience. They finally have the Challenger Hellcats!!
    I want to to first say that the SRT experience was the best time I have had in a long time. I took the wife, who is not a car person, and she had a blast and wants to go again. How lucky am I.
    We were given access to 392 Charger grocery getters, soccer mom SRT Grand Cherokees, beastly Challenger Hellcats and even 2015 Super car Vipers. Are you frickin kidding me! Let me at em.
    I started with the Viper, eh....not for me. Car is gorgeous but cabin space was not designed for a big football player. The Charger 392, smooth and lite feeling, acceleration unreal and exhaust note was perfect. Hugged the track like it was on rails. Grand Cherokee, beautiful suv, plush, throttle response was amazing, on the road course it was squirrely and tires screaming all the way through the course. The Challenger Hellcat........what can I say but WOW! I already know the power it has but now to experience the handling on a road course was absolutely amazing. The Hellcat exhaust screamed like a Nascar in the straight aways, hugged the turns and apexs and power slides through the corners rediculously.....this from a 4000+ muscle car, whhhaaattt :confused:.
    Needless to say, the rest of the day my seat time was in the Hellcat the rest of the afternoon.
    I suggest everyone go and experience this for themselves. Have fun and enjoy!

    I hope it's the same cars at the one in North Texas this October! I want to drive the Hellcat and the Viper to get the most out of the experience as a Hellcat owner. That's awesome!

    They let you drive the Hellcat and the Viper? This is very surprising to me. Hell, I'm surprised they have Hellcats at all. I attended a month ago, and they had neither Hellcats nor Vipers.

    The last time I attended they had two autocross type courses and then you were also able to drive on the big race track. Which of these three courses were the hellcat and vipers available to drive on?

    I attended, as well. Outstanding day!! I was totally surprised but I fell in love with the Viper. Amazing power, great braking, unsurpassed handling. Still going to order a 2016 hellcat challenger but the Viper was a pleasant surprise. Of course the Hellcat was the star of the show.

    The only disappointment was that we didn't get to drive on the big track at Charlotte. Was surprised. However, the road course track was fun. Would love to have let the Hellcat stretch his legs on the NASCAR track.

    Great fun though. Thanks SRT Experience!!

    When I went back in '08 they had Vipers but we didn't get to drive them. We rode along with an instructor driving the Viper. I'm really looking forward to going again in Sept.
