    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg Just got my vanity plates in... Here are my impressions after having a Gen 4 Viper and Cammed C6 most recently.

    Likes:

    Power: it can be driven at a reasonable level and with tons of comfort. It is not hard to drive it easy and it begs to be drive harder. It feels about as fast as my 500whp corvette or the 540whp viper. Once I can modify it i think it will be easy for us to get 900whp with bolt ons. She is a beast stock!

    Handling:

    I believe she is on par with my Base C6. They both felt a little sloppy but capable. The Viper however was a much tighter car then both. The steering is decent but could give a little more feeling. I didn't buy this car with the expectations that it was a track carver so it suites me well. I think it handles very well for its curb weight and in fact a little better.

    Interior:

    I think the interior is above and beyond the previous cars listed. It is very comfortable and has a ton of ammentities. This was what I was missing with the other two vehicles. My only gripe is that I wish I had gotten the Laguna leather :-( .... I never ordered one so I got what I got ....

    Transmission :

    I bought an M6 because I don't own anything automatic. Shifts are smooth by a little notchy at times. The gearbox shifts better once warm as all cars do typically. Clutch feel is light and easy to handle. I have driven in and out of traffic and it feels fine. Overall a very solid combination.

    Overall :

    Do I wish she was lighter and not as wide? Yes - then I could have faster ET's and get into my garage easier. With that being said I couldn't be happier with my decision. Let the modifications being!

    I am also very thankful for Hellcat.org. A great resource and community to help us Hellcat owners.

    Cheers

    Great commentary. Gorgeous car.

    Is that a factory satin hood or did you have it wrapped or painted later? Looks great.

    Like the car, and the write-up; I got EVL CAT for my plate, as EVILCAT was taken, and most of the other neat plates were already taken also... Congrat's on a great car!

    I was going to do that here in California, but the law is so screwed up that I'd end up paying more for it after I get the car, than waiting until I do get it.

    That's exactly what I was going to do too, but when I dug deeper into it, I found out (through the DMV's own web portal) I would have to pay a "maintenance fee" each year for keeping the plate that was transferred from my old car to another, and CONTINUE to pay that maintenance fee each year thereafter. Well, that's how I understood it anyway. Needless to say, it wasn't worth it... Besides, the three Hellcat license plate names I want are so unique, yet so obvious, that I don't think anyone would come up with them. (not to sound like a smartass :()
