    Just got past 500 miles. I was waiting/anticipating something to come up on the screen saying I unlocked the full potential with 500th mile, but nothing. The only difference I saw was oil pressure was higher at idle now than befor when warm (44ish at idle before, 51 ish at idle now, psi).
    Still the car is scary fast, but I haven't really gone over 3000 rpms at any gear yet.
    What shoul I expect?

    Thank you for any feedback.

    It's basically the same thing, except a real-life hellcat tears its way out of the cushion in the back seat and feasts on your entrails. You'll want to preset your GPS for the nearest emergency room with a competent surgeon on staff.

    Launch control doesn't unlock until 1500 miles. I believe that is what is in the book.
    I haven't tried mine.

    You have full RPM range....use them :D

    Training wheels fall off, left fuel rail hose assembly miraculously fixes itself, a second clamp appears on the upper radiator hose, your vanity plates are one week away from delivery, your paint refuses to bubble up in places other' s have, your break in oil is over half way to being changed, you've "dialed in" your radio favorites, posted on at least two "go fast forums", worried about getting smacked in the rear quarter panel in the mall parking lot, bitched about premium fuel prices, cracked open your owner' s manual at least twice, had a great dream, had a night mare ( both over your car), bought something to add to your HC, wrestled over getting an extended warranty or not and know the name of your Service Manager.

    There may be more, but that was 1500 miles ago...enjoy your beast!!!
