This car reminds me so much of my 2004 Cobra with pulley and full Borla exhaust. (That I regret trading for a GT500)

Seriously this thing hauls the mail. Still breaking it in but it's the first car I've owned that's scary. This is coming from an ex Gen III Viper owner.

Will have more driving impressions as I get more seat time.

So far, I'm impressed.


:clap: Tim, you simply CANNOT BE TRUSTED!

This calls for a team meeting at Pescado (?) in Fillmore. Terri and I are in town until Monday morning. Anyone else available and interested in a meeting of the Bored and maybe checkout the Hellcat? Sunday we have an Easter commitment... so Saturday.
I'm interested in seeing/hearing ? the Hellcat.


I'll have time late Saturday afternoon after 3pm.

Sounds like fun!

This article answers the questions. What a friggin toy!
I have never been a Dodge fan, but these guys are pretty much insane. :clap: in a great way. This is a car we would have built.
Yeh, not for the road course, but I gave up on the serious dual-purpose car concept after putting a full Griggs suspension on Piggie in 2004 (2003?) with less than optimal results.
Terri and I had 'the Demon discussion' -- after she kept hearing the vids playing over and over. It does not make sense when I'm still (re)learning to walk and the computer chip in my head is so degraded, to jump into the bidding. I would have to keep the car up here in the USA, like the SPF. Terri never minded the cage in Piggie -- thought it was 'cute', but the missing passenger seat bugged her . But out of the Demon discussion and my agreement to fuggitabout a Demon, the full disclosure that the SPF is going to get a blown Coyote (not this year which is rushing by), unless I croak first, got out on the table... Which explained to her some of the stuff she has been observing on my Surface screen -- she should have been a detective. :lol:
I have broken the sweat. Don't need it. But I am so proud of Dodge for making it.

In addition to all that craziness with the Demon they put the Hellcat engine into the Grand Cherokee. The vehicle is pretty insane considering it's AWD.

It's not my cup of tea because I like my WK2's off-road but will blow the doors off any other SUV out there street performance wise.

XJRGUY - can you feel the emanations of my envy?

Congratulations on the new Hellcat. I was at Spring Fling and heard one get zinged. The sound was amazing.
Maybe that one was yours?
