To all forum members who appear to have access to "inside information":

As a former Motorcycle "OEM" guy myself I'd like to know your credentials & source for the information you're posting? Are you a dealer, factory employee etc. and in what capacity do you operate? Based on the recent info. posted by some folks, particularly with build sequence numbers and status updates, etc. I'd guess that if you are in fact a Dodge/Chrysler/ Fiat Group employees then perhaps you're associated with a logistics function?

Please realize that until the people who are posting information with a specific degree of detail and/or confidence identify themselves and their source of information then at best all the information posted here and other forums is purely speculative. With all due respect...identify yourselves and please explain how are you vetting the information before posting it as gospel... Thank you-

From what I've seen, Chrysler follows these forums as well. When we started mentioning tracking information on the VOTS website, it was shut down. When we mentioned it still worked on Jeep.com... it was shut down.

Out of the protection of the information flow from getting cut off, I don't see credentials as being important.

In another post awhile back I had mentioned that some of my info comes from a used car salesman friend of mine who I play cards with, but I have to admit I may have been stretching the truth a bit :D. In either event, I'll match up my "speculative" information here against any other source :)

I for one, am glad to have the info that RS has given and I don't really care where it came from. Seems legit to me.

I've gotten more truth from this forum than any dealer so far. The dealer just loves when I tell them more about my car then they know :) so credentials really don't matter to me. So weather info is slightly wrong, completely wrong, or spot on, I enjoy reading the buzz on our cars. We ordered em, and we'll eventually get them. That's all that matters.

ResumeSpeed has provided such a wealth of information over the years (long before this site ever existed) that I treat what he says with gospel. Doubt others all you want but don't doubt him. He doesn't need to 'prove' himself in my eyes... not sure how he gets his information and it really doesn't matter, nearly everything he's ever provided has proven to be accurate.

Agreed!

Okay fair enough...to begin with I didn't name names...y'all did so that's on you.

In principal, how does one know that what someone posts is in fact accurate or not...? This implies that an alternate source of information exists for you to fact check postings? If so, please do share with the rest of us... People believe what they want to believe...the truth may be another story...time will tell.

Perhaps the production launch/release of the Hellcat is std. protocol....perhaps not? It would be nice to receive a statement from Dodge/Dealers (via e-mail) every once in a while with official status updates.

Umm I'm sure certain people would lose their job if the revealed who they are or their sources. RS has been consistent so far and that's good enough for most. He's not forcing anyway to take what he's saying, so if someone doesn't agree with it they can choose not to believe it. I'm sure it's no sweat off his back.

I agree that it is frustrating to get conflicting information and there are others who receive updates from who we think are reliable sources and, in fact, are just misled like the rest of us. ResumeSpeed is one that everyone here has identified as a reliable source and has been accurate in his information. For me, his information is the only data that I count on a truly reliable. My dealer has been honest with me, but he does not have the level of information RS does. This is a forum of people who have built a relationship and became a family to some extent. We have built some trust among each other with honesty sharing of information. Yes, we shared what we heard from SRT Hotline and others, but really they were just relaying what was in the system. They were not privi to the information RS has on why the shippings were delayed or cancelled. Mainly what I am trying to say is that there is a level of trust and proven facts that has led us to believe what information is shared. This is the only member that has been determined to be a source of insider information that has helped members. I hope that helps you understand why we place our confidence in this information. ;)

There is no way I could be that close to my car and not strategize a break out!!! If I put that much effort into seeing it, my a$$ better be driving the darn thing home or someone is going to be getting a serious butt chewing they do not want. :mad: I love this mean face, I wish I could make it. My daughter always laughs when I try to look mean and she's like, "Mom, you aren't mean so don't even try it! Your face does not get the scary mom look." darn it!! I need the scary mom look. Maybe they would release my Hellcat!!!
