So, did you swap drives to let SBD get a spin in such a clean M3?

No, no swaps. I had the FJ anyway. Cool to look at, but not a very exciting drive.

Too much construction in that area to bring the BMW, plus the M3 wasn't registered until the next day. I just pretty much drooled over the Hellcat...

Agreed.

Although something tells me the 53k he put on it gave him a taste of the experience

Now he just needs to get us some Hellcat videos on here.

Side marker overlays on. Going to order larger pieces of overlay so they cover all of the markers vs the outside only.

What a sexy motherfucker. I swear, if Cadillac didn't keep things so classic, it would have been this beast.
What a great upgrade. Congrats, man.

Also, we won't rat you out next time you record yourself. You can go over 100. Nobody is watching.

Flame suite on: I bought one of the fastest production sedans on the market...and don't care for high speed that much. I do love some burnouts and donuts though, so I'll be sure to get someone to take some video of that at some point.

How does it feel when you get out the HellCat and into the flex?


Probably like like when I leave a Vegas hooker and come home to the wifey

In reality, it's not too bad. It's got the twin turbo V6 in it, so despite the brick-like aero, it moves pretty good. Braking is a whole different experience though!

I left on Sunday with a little under 300 miles on the odometer. Took the Hellcat up to Southport, NC for work, then met the family over in Asheville, NC on Wednesday for a day at the Biltmore Estate. Thursday morning we jumped on the Blue Ridge Parkway and headed south to the Pisgah National Forest, then back to GA.

The handling characteristics of the Hellcat vs. Scat Pack are really not even comparable. Despite being rather porky, the Hellcat handles really damn good (not quite M3 good, but not bad either) and the hydraulic steering is much better than the SP. The mix of adjustable suspension and lack of MDS made it a quieter, more comfortable drive on the interstates as well. Managed to average about 23.5 mpg on the highways.

People cut the resonators out on these and I'll admit that at first I was tempted, but this thing is so fucking loud. Had my 9 yr old with me on the Blue Ridge Parkway and gave it some gas in one of the tunnels with the windows down. I got "Daddy, that was REALLY loud!"

No, it's all stock. Well, I did convert it from a bench 2nd row to captains chairs, so I guess that could be considered a mod.

Keeping the inside of the family mobile clean is a mod in itself!

Beautiful shot

in the summer we did Raleigh to DC and did shenodoah and blue ridge
i guess coming from La and Angeles Crest etc, was very disappointed in blue ridge
it was ok but wasn’t worth the hype

23mpg is awesome !

When you go to party and people say say what you drive, and you say HELLCAT, what’s the reaction?

its such a cool car Car with a cool name
