I'll be cheering you on from Dallas, make me proud.
The first thing the Tech inspector did last year was make sure my tires on the SRT 392 (Cooper Zeon RS3-S) had a 106Y rating so that is a good call but a bummer at the same time for you. I didn't see a stock 392 get up that fast; usually was in the 163 - 167 MPH range but it wouldn't be worth the risk.

Would have been a blast! We need to get a little meet up here sometime with some fellow owners.

Yeah, stuff happens. Wife will be happy I'm not spending the money...lol Maybe next set of tires.

I'd like a good look at the Hellcat of yours. A meetup sounds good.
