    Good morning all just got off the phone with SRT:

    Below is the following updates for today

    Black hoods will not be available till late February early March and cars that of been ordered with them will get them first; while new orders will begin quickly after. They claim they will not ship black hooded cars until all hood are available.

    Brass monkey wheels and sunroofs are still not available and no apparent date for their release

    The color B5 Blue has been canceled , no hellcats will be shipped with this color.

    All allocations have been changed to monthly with the next one being the first week of January. SRT has no dealings with the allocation formula.

    Production has ramped up with the hellcats bringing on a third shift to production.

    If your car is allocated before another carat your dealer; your car will receive a vin before the car after you. This means that the next car could be built and delivered before the your car has been completed however your car will be in the construction process before that car was allocated, so your car will begin prior to the next allocation at your dealer don't worry about the car after you taking your allocation like I was.

    SRT can I give you any information on a specific car until vin has been produced.

    I hope this is helpful.

    That would explain why there is a Black hooded car that has been shipped.

    Has ResumeSpeed read this yet? He is the only source I trust. I don't doubt that SRT believes everything they said is true and correct. I, however, don't believe most of it. No black hoods, agree. No sunroof, agree. The rest, not so much agree. It would be great if they brought on a 3rd shift for production. Thanks for posting the information.

    Does the dealer know if they have allocation. I've got a car in BX status and am #1 at that small dealer. They keep checking status but I get the feeling they're not sure when/if they will get one. Guess that's par for the course?

    SRT hotline...listen closely in the background, "hey Bob...could you check hellcat.org for the latest information so I can pass it along to this joker I got on the line"

    They probably even got the month to month allocation news from RS here lol

    I have been told that the dealer knows the first of their allocations based on what they have been initially told. At least through December of 2014. I had a deposit at a small dealership first back in October they called me back 2 weeks later claiming they have no allocation for these and they can't even put the order into the system. I went to another dealer that had an allocation of 4 and was put in the system. You do have a Von # and a build sheet correct? If you do your car will eventually be build however 2015 or 2016. I wish I could help you more. If you don't. Go to another dealer. Dealers that have Hellcats on their lot not being sold will hurt their allocation.

    B5 cancelled? Doesn't make too much sense given that is it orderable in Canada...
