I've driven in Valet mode twice. Once to try it out for the first time, and another to show caren how slow it is. Only time it will be used is for any service work. :)

Hellcat Trivia: Valet mode is ~300 HP output. Same power curve as the V6.

I would think a valet would have trouble with the loss of 1st gear on the six speed and not have a clue unless you told him. I tried to leave the dealer with the black key and tried to let out the clutch in 1st gear twice before someone told me it locks out. It was like the parking brake was on. Always that way with the black key? The manual does not seem real clear on black key functions. Just throw it away best advice? I did not know about 1-4 shift with red key at low speeds either. Reminds me of my Viper days. These features kind of suck.

I just got a six-speed, but have not heard of any lock-out of 1st gear with black key, that's disturbing! Not jazzed about skip shift, either, darn.

Aren't the revs limited to 4k in valet mode? If so, are the revs limited to 4k with the M6?

And just to clarify, the M6 requires 1-4 skip-shift all the time in valet mode?

The cars should have been delivered with 1 red key, 1 black key and a pink key for valet.

I have valet my car 2 times, both time gave them my black key. Problem was I had my red key so I couldn't activate valet mode. Plus side was I watched them both times park it right out front for everyone to see. Was in the same spot both times I came back. Big tips each time...

So you can not put the car in valet mode with the black key?

Valet mode activates from either key

ya what they said....valet mode is independent of the key you have.
