Have to be odd to be No.1
Just going to be sitting in my little Aussie section Pat so I don't have to read how good the Cat is and not be able to own one. ::crying:: ::crying:: ::crying::

Just a blue blur . . . .Just imagine what passing on your favourite track would be like!
Thanks! Looking forward to seeing your wheels! Be careful with the road racing . . . It is addictive!!! ::biggrin::Congrats Patrick. Finally got it! Oh, I don't think any programming changes at 500, but it is good you are respecting the break-in anyway. You got the right color, nice, it is amazing in the sun.
The 300 looks great. It even looks like it kicks butt. I don't think I have seen that good of a picture before. You are set, enjoy!
FYI, I should be receiving my Triumph wheels next week, had them make me the fronts to match OEM's I will put my original rears on them. Got two wonderful 315/35 P-Zeros to put on the 10.5" rears with a 25mm backset to get them tucked in. I am going to try some road racing, so I may need to visit for some pointers soon! My original set of wheels are fixed up with a rear set of 305/35 Nitto drag radials for those sub 11 second runs.
Hopefully some vid - after this weekend!Finally !!! Can't wait to hear how the cat drives on the track. BBII I cannot wait for some video on your new track monster
Thanks, Piggy (I think . . .)
Thanks Ken! It is hard to put into words what this car is like to drive. A pussycat when cruising with all the luxo toys. A beast of a cat when you ask her to go.Congrats! She looks AMAZING, and I love the color! I can't wait to hear more about it and your driving impressions. After seeing your photos, I think I now prefer it over the Challenger. I really like the idea of a big, comfortable car with 4 doors and 707 hp

Let me get some road & track time on her - then I'll do up a full report.
BTW - I just registered for a "Race The Runway" event in August. It's a timed half mile jaunt down an airport runway. Should be fun!
The launch could be a bit tricky depending on what they do to prep the air strip and the tires you plan to use. Most launch control systems don't work that great, but maybe the Hellcat is different. The launch control on my GT500 works best on a prepped track, not the street, and it is very picky about clutch release. I'm sure you can do better than the launch control after a little practice, but it's a good idea to use it a few times to get the feel of it. It took me a while just to get to a point where I was comfortable with hard launches in sport mode on the street in my GT500. Now that I've got better tires (Toyo R888s) and more seat time I'm much more comfortable. What fun it is to get a new car and learn all the little nuances of it's personality and behaviorSince I have almost zero experience with drag starts, I guess I'll have to practise my launches.
The HC has a launch control system built in. Don't know how good it is.
