I have learned quite a bit over this time, but I'm stepping into new grounds with this car! Luckily I've stumbled across this great site, and have been spending quite a bit of time reading up and using the search function! I thank you in advance for taking the time to check out my build thread, and hope you'll take a minute to check in from time to time. I purchased my Hellcat on April 29th, 2017.

The car is amazing in stock trim. Although the Charger Hellcat weighs more, and also has quite a bit less horsepower than my Mustang, I still find the power exhilarating! This is the first time I've had an auto car since I learned to drive manual. I've always stuck with manual cars for my performance vehicles as well. The fact that my entire family can now enjoy my crazy passion is such an upside!
This auto is a complete work horse! I absolutely love the slap shift feature! I hardly ever use the paddle shifters, but I really enjoy slapping that shifter around in manual mode.
These different drive modes change the manners of the car entirely! Track Mode with Street Suspension is basically how I have my Custom setting configured. The Track Mode downshifts are a bit aggressive for stop and go traffic in town, but it also reminds me of what I am driving.
I've always had an attention to detail with my previous builds, and I suspect this will be no different.
I do have plans to run Accuair E-Level Management, Dual Compressors and an Endo VT Tank. I'd really like to utilize the Bilstein struts and keep the adjustable electronic damping. Stay tuned for updates on this!
Follow along as this build progresses, and be sure to leave your feedback! I'm excited to carve my way into the Mopar family with this build.
