3. How does the undercarriage visually differ from our beloved 2009-2014? Is it smooth(er)? Undercarriage defuser?
4. What does the suspension look like is it completely redesigned from the 2014? Does it share the same dimensions? wheel base? width?
5. Measure the rear wheel wells - what is the fattest tire it will take without rolling the fenders?

Gene, I've posted links to this thread on our sister sites 300cforums, Cherokeesrt8 and Chargerforums as I have a feeling there may be some, particularily the Charger crowd who may have questions. You may get a few questions popping up from those members who I've invited to ask here.

Big congrats Gene on the experience of a lifetime!

If I had to ask a question; how did they deal with rear wheel hop?

Assuming you will get a A8 tranny but, you might also get a chance at the M6 car. Given the amount of torque available, it's possible either tranny would generate wheel hop. My guess is revised bushings which would likely be difficult for you to distinguish but figured I would ask anyway.

There is a fine line between "Hobby" and "Mental Illness." Some of us may have crossed the line.

Please get someone with real knowledge to tell you what the base price will be, I think it will put all of us in our place when we actually find out that 95% of us including me won't be able to afford it. The price thrown out there a while back was 600hp for 79k now we're at 707hp with a CTS V coming out at 92K. I think the price will shock us harder than the 707hp did. It makes you think why buy a 640hp viper for 130K when you can get a 707hp Challenger with a top speed said to be over 200 with seating for 5 and a place to put your luggage and golf clubs for cheap with enough money left over to buy a loaded R/T

The rear end is a place I like to be. Huh sounds funny.
Planning to take pics of everything back there, how its built and how its hooked up everything. And I will ask the question.

I hope I get the auto 8 speed tested first. Then onto the 6 speed.
You all know I have an auto, like my auto.
It dont mean I cant drive a stick. Dont take me very long at all to row through the gears. So i will be fine with the 6 speed.
It really depends if the hellcat can handle Flattop.

Congrats flat top. What I am dying to know -

1) will the exhaust cutouts (electronically triggered dump valves) make it to production on the 392 models?
2) will any of the SRTs have a shaker hood option?

Thanks and enjoy!

Thats a good point. One I need to see these valves or cutouts myself. I like the concept of cutouts its
just so many fall apart. I hate stuff falling apart.
I had cutouts once. Best I ever had were made by Silent Choice. Pnumatic closer. didnt leak ever and worked flawlessly. Should for $ 2,200.00 bucks. They were an option on my boat I had to have.

So let see what they put on the Cat
