    So i can order cars from home. So I tried to build a hellcat challenger. A8 is on restriction and can not order, and Black hood no longer comes up to pick as a option.

    Looks like parts are getting slim :(

    Uh Oh! Wish you had a way to check lead-times on parts that are back ordered, etc. That would help to know if peeps should consider making changes that can to move their order along if they desired.

    Did they run out of A8? I don't think it is unique to just the Hellcat is it? I thought the 392 had the same one. That is just crazy.o_O Did you not have yours ordered yet? I thought you did... The M6 totally rocks! It's not a hardship unless you drive in traffic a lot.:)

    Doubt it. They don't offer M6. That would mean 0 Chargers. Can't imagine that's the case...:confused:

    Hellcat has a different A8 than the 392. Mine is on the way already built

    I want ET at drag strip that's why I got the A8, and I broke 2 tr6060 6 speeds all ready.

    That's what I thought on your order. I didn't realize the A8 is different. That definitely raises concern for the Charger...:confused:

    Maybe they will stop making the hellcat, and it will be a collector

    Before everyone panics and false rumors get started, if the A8 is on restriction, is that only for NEW orders being entered now, or does it affect orders that would already be entered and sitting BX status? In another thread, someone posted their BX order has dropped back to BG status. Could this be affecting that order? If a car already has a VIN assigned, does that mean their A8 has already been planned and accounted for? Could there simply be a glitch in the ordering system and not a shortage of transmissions? Could there simply be a delay in a train or truck shipping built transmissions to Brampton? Anyway to know how many transmissions are on hand at the factory waiting to be installed? Maybe ten of them or maybe 1000?

    It's not the dodge.com site he's having these issues with, it's the Dodge internal ordering system

    Try ordering a Charger and see what happens.
