Hey all, I am an owner of an '03 SRT-4 and I am an avid participant at SRTforums.com. My dad is picking up a vanilla 300C on Monday! I feel honored to join the community! Any advice on performance upgrades? I am pretty well-read with respect to my SRT-4, but I have a lot to learn about this car! Any help would be appreciated, thanks! :D

I have found mostly cosmetic upgrads but there is the Exhaust and there is also a supercharger coming out. Somewhere on the forum there is a video of it coming soon.
Glad you're joining the fam.

Welcome to the forums! Poke around the performance mods section a bit, there is a vast body of knowledge here, and if there is something specific you are interested in but can't find, just ask - guaranteed there's someone here that can help... Enjoy!

Thanks for the warm welcome, guys! I'm gald to see the flaming of noobs is not as rampant as at srtforums.com! One quick question: How is the "autostick". I know on the jeeps, it serves more as a "range limiter" i.e. you select the highest gear you want the tranz to shift into...I am just curious as to the logistics of the system as applied to the 300! :)

Shmirgin44,

Welcome!!

Your father and you will enjoy this vehicle!
The auto-stick or as I like to call it the "lazy-man's" stick is nice.
1) off the line in '2' .... it's nice havin' the HEMI
2) In snow, lower for more torque to pull you out with and w/o ESP
3) saving the brakes

Again just like a stick but not as fun

Picked it up @ 7:00! Been driving ever since!!!!!!! I freakin' LOVE this car!!!!!! I already got pulled over in it too! :rolleyes: I had the plated from our old car on the 300, and Im sure the cop ran my plates. He was surprised when he walked up to the car and i greeted him with, "I'm sure you're wondering why this is a Vanilla 300C and not a Blue Volvo C70..." I got off w/ a warning...:D

You are lucky you got of with just a warning! Good luck avoiding the bears in the future. We here in East Texas have to watch carefully! The cops tend to hid in the trees all up and down I20. :(
