PLENTY of good info on here! Welcome, now you have to post some pics!!!
Valet mode definitely feels like your driving an SXT. Black fob is a ridiculous secondary fob since the HC still kicks ass at 500 hp. In fact, it's what Radford Racing School limits you to using on their Redeyes when you redeem your SRT Track Experience.I still find it comical that the valet key "limits" the power to 300-ish hp
And they are still fast and fun even at (only) 500.Valet mode definitely feels like your driving an SXT. Black fob is a ridiculous secondary fob since the HC still kicks ass at 500 hp.

That’s horrible, glad you’re okIt's with a heavy heart, and beyond a point of sadness that I've ever had in losing a really nice car. On May 2nd I joined this forum and was graciously & presently surprised at the welcoming greeting from so many of the current members of this forum who replied with friendly fellow gear head car enthusiast responses.
On my way to work in the early AM hours on May 5, just 3 days after joining this forum... I was 2 exits away from arriving to work, as it was raining heavily. In a long banked sweeping bend in the highway (heading right) the rain water was draining across all 4 lanes toward the shoulder of highway.
It was in that sweeping turn I felt a really hard surge through the steering wheel that startled me, as I knew what it caused it. My front tires had begun to hydroplane, and within fractions of a second that same surge feeling was felt, but from the rear tires which began to bring the tires out of contact with the road's surface. The rear of the car began to slide out toward the left, and I had immediately let my foot of the throttle in hopes it would regain traction. Unfortunately, that did not happen. The rear of my car began to go into a spin, so I attempted to counter steer out of the slide. At a certain point I realized I was nearing the shoulder of the highway, and what then began the point of no return.
Into wet grass and mud with rain pouring, my car slid downward where there was a natural water run off. That run off was met by a very acutely angled embankment that was built up to allow for a nearby merging on ramp from another interstate. In that V-shaped water drain area (mud and grass, thankfully not concrete). Narrowly missing a 70' tall steel highway lighting pole by no more than 10 feet, my car then experienced a violently hard impact with the upward banked portion of the ground that bent the front of my car upward so badly that it buckled the roof, and split several areas of the hardened steel sections of the car where the firewall meets the driver's side A-pillar and near the bell housing of the transmission.
Thankfully no one else was involved, there were no passengers with me, and I didn't damage anyone's personal property. A local policemen had stopped to ask if I was alright, at which time I told them yes, I was not hurt. I was grateful that I was in one of the middle lanes, and that the car did not flip as it hit the upward embankment. I'm pretty down to say the least, but things could have been way worse.
I just wanted to say thank you all again for the kind greeting.
