    Just did today muffler delete to my M6 sounds fantastic..loud as sh%t when u first start it up than quiets itself when muffler dampner closes..Also put on the Speedlogics trailing arms and rear ` Barton.png hellcat lowered.jpg liscense plate.jpg bushing kit along with K&R springs that lowered it 2 inches and to top it off the Barton shifter..That shifter is a night and day difference in shifting no movement no wiggle just like its in a rail and flows in..No wheel hop at all it tightened up that rear end great..Can drop that clutch and move now..Only have 500 miles and those panels behind the front wheels look horrible from rocks..Put some Mopar flaps on hope that helps..

    Looks good Shooter... Did the Speedlogic trailing arms really make that big of a difference and really take the hop out?

    Very nice your cats looking great. Can you take a picture of a straight side shot. I really like the way it's lowered and want to see a full side view if you can.

    it rattled my teeth out before.. The combination of the bushing kit and arms and its a complete different animal..Only did 2 rolling about 5 mph and dropped the clutch and burned and went no wheel hop like before..Started to rain or I would of did some stop and drops..Ill try when the weather is warmer and no rain..but I'm really happy now

    Put some Suntek clear film behind the wheels on the paint...that's what I did and it protects against the rocks without the look of rock guards (if you don't like them). Congrats on the Hellcat and it looks great!

    shooter45 I purchased the Razors Edge trailing arms from Speedlogix but I didn't install them yet. What rear bushing kit did you buy?

    rear control arms bushing kit from Speedlogic..I think it was 90$ I ordered it last Nov and don't see my receipt..SRT mechanic said that kit was better than the stock bushings and tightened up the rear end good..

    Shooter, I will be very interested in how that mod with the trailing arms make a difference. Let us know how you make out and your car looks beautiful

    IMO based on experience on my car, the trailing arm did not do shzt for the wheel hop. When I installed the two new other control arms (on each side) that had all together different bushings THAT stopped the hop. I believe it is the rear bushings and have read the same.

    Look at the Mexican stock bushings, my John Deere has more stout bushings than those.

    DGatzby Did you replace your stock control arms with the billet ones from Speedlogix?
