Yeah, not the best cell phone pic, and didn't realize it was so shitty until I posted it here. Thought it looked cool when I came out of the restaurant last night.

And yes, completely in love with my car. It treats me well and doesn't talk back...yet.

If you had a woman that treated you well but didn't talk back, wouldn't human nature dictate that you'd get bored?


No ragrets yet, huh?
I wonder, over time, if you'll find the same enjoyment from a more numb American car (due to weight and the way they are put together).
Curious, not knocking it as you know I drive something similar.

If she didn't take half, or murdering her wouldn't land me in prison, I would be single tomorrow and live the Eliot Spitzer lifestyle.

No to both.


Your life is glorious, because you are better looking, have a longer penis, and a vehicle with american torque.

Took it down the dragon and back! What a fucking monster this car is!!! Track mode makes a world of difference in the curves. Way more nimble that I expected it to be.

I try to get there every time I am up here at my TN office. Yesterday was the first time I had to stop for a bit after doing it in both directions. The 636 turns in less than an hour and the odor coming off my brakes had me feeling like I was going to hurl.

Now THAT is excitement! Driving the dragon in a minivan with three kids! I'd be afraid of projectile vomit.

Thanks man! The Dragon is good fun and all, but I think some of the road around it are even better. If you can get over to the Cherohala Skyway sometime, that is wonderful drive.

Dang man you were there just before I was. I went Friday - Monday. Just got home last night.

After a really hard run just one way on the dragon I had the brakes on the Vagon smoking when I got done.

I did not. We did the skyway and some other roads on Sunday when it happened. Did our Dragon runs on Saturday afternoon. The Dragon was shut down Saturday morning as well cause a car flipped and ended up stuck on its roof. From what I heard it was a Toyota 86.

Amazing how capable these big cars are on a road like the Dragon.

I could not believe the difference in handling between the scat pack and the hellcat. Hydraulic steering in the hellcat is also worlds better than the electronic in the SP. Looking forward to doing it with warmer temps though, the P-Zeros were sliding around a bit.

Would you say worth the upgrade cost?

Some of the local Scat Pack guys are quite douchey. They seem like they are driving gods gift to automobiles.

Hellcat owners are very awesome and down to earth.

I would have thought the opposite.

For the longest time I was in the camp that thought the hellcat was not worth the upgrade price. However, after pricing out what mods it would take to get me at the same power level, installation, tuning, and still not have the other goodies the hellcat does it was clear the hellcat was the winner. The other big win was having 700+ hp AND a warranty.

Without a doubt, the Hellcat is worth the upgrade cost.

I can appreciate a clean RT / SRT8 .. but I agree. Most of the examples I see around driving erratically are V6 Autos with plasti-dipped stock wheels - cuz murican muscle.

Makes sense.

I listen to one 5 days a week at the school line. It is just glorious. Lines full of AMG/Range Rovers/Teslas, and all the KIDS and ME only pay attention to the white Hellcat sedan with the red interior.
