Thanks! I'm looking forward to the paint correction. I think dealerships have the lowest paid guy, with the dirtiest microfiber cloth, doing the "detailing" on cars before showroom and delivery.

Thanks man! Right back at ya! I still haven't seen a HC in person. I did park next to a black SRT 392 last weekend and I thought that was really really sharp.

true true It's one of the reasons I bought mine in black! Though in hindsight, I've learned it's probably the wrong color for someone who is OCD....at least for me it is.

That's why I decided to go the Hellcat route instead of just supercharging the Scat Pack. Warranty, beefier drivetrain, and overall fewer headaches.

Had to google the exploding sunroof in the flex as I have never heard of it (ours doesn't have one). This can easily be prevented by eating less taco bell and farting in the car. That pressure differential is way too much for the sunroof to handle.

Well 707HP has a pucker factor, even amongst us mere mortals. Something you won't know anything about, at your elevated status

There are modes other than comp mode?
Even just moving Vettes around the lot, when I was working for a Chevrolet dealer in college, I'd pop them into competition mode

Fun stuff from yesterday's drive up to Tennessee.

1. It's fun to be able to hang with a Viper ACR when they stomp on it, at least from 60ish to 115 (In a straight line).
2. It's fun to finally find that sweet spot where the exhaust pops and gurgles really loud. Not so much fun when you find this sweet spot by letting off the gas suddenly because a cop is sitting over the hill. Didn't get pulled over though.

Did you go to the dragon or no? I am headed there this weekend with the Vagon this time around to compare it handling wise to when it was stock.

Not yet, I'll probably get there tomorrow. On-power traction with these P-Zeros and the colder temps has been interesting to say the least. Unless it's a bit warmer when I go, I won't be pushing it much.

I didn't know that last year. Took my father in-law on it after Thanksgiving and it was like a ghost town. Great for being one of the few out there, but I was wanting to grab some decals from the store.

Found out over the summer that I scared the shit out of him on that drive. When I texted asking if he was ready to do it in the hellcat, I got no response
