    SRT advertises that our cars are covered even if we race them. Is there anything written in our warranty about this? I sure would like a few questions answered about it.

    Covered if the car breaks down while racing at a track?
    Covered if the car has racing tires on it?

    O yeah, it's in owners manual.

    This is another big source of misinformation; There are some interviews, with Dodge execs, and they state on camera that you can enjoy your Hellcat at the track, and still benefit from that full factory warranty (unlike most competing brands) yet people have noticed that the owner's manual states otherwise. Perhaps the manual has errors, or info relating to Dodge cars as a whole and not Hellcat specific? Or, maybe Dodge staffers have been lying, on camera? Somebody from Dodge should step in, and explain what IS the truth!

    Often times this comes down to your dealer and if they want to cover it.

    I agree! Your dealer can either be your best friend or worst enemy in matters like this.

    I'm lucky if I brake it I fix it and get paid to fix it. Racing or not. As long as I keep working for the dealer

    Since you work at the dealer tell us how to do the oil changed on Hellcats if you can't get us a video that Dodge made. Thanks!

    So I'm reading the warranty book online (http://www.dodge.com/crossbrand/warranty/pdf/2015-Dodge-Generic_Warranty-1st.pdf) and page 14 section 3.4 says "3.4 Racing Not Covered. Your warranties don’t cover the costs of repairing damage or conditions caused by racing, nor do they cover the repair of any defects that are found as the result of participating in a racing event." There's 40 some odd pages of warranty information. Interesting reading.

    ...but that's the generic Dodge warranty. We need clarification on the SRT specifics. Actually the Hellcats aren't Dodges are they? ;)

    Yes they are Dodge now. The warranty link above comes from the dodge.com owners page for Challenger SRT.

    Interesting I can't find the interview on line (just re read a couple of days ago.) But it was someone (Cowland, Giles or?) that clearly stated they knew this car would be on the strip and tracked and built it accounting for that. Although it could be argued as received I suppose...
