Gene,

Have a great time. I know that you'll represent CT well!

Congrats Flat Top!! I know you will put the 2015 Challenger line-up through their paces.

Questions:

1. Exactly what cars was the Hellcat bench marked against?
2. Where is the first place I can start to remove weight from the Hellcat? And how much do you think can be removed safely while still being street legal?
3. Can you elaborate the differences between the LC and LA platforms? What exactly changed?
4. Does Dodge/SRT plan on running the Hellcat on the Nurburgring?
5. What is the max down force the Hellcat produces?
6. Are the red seat belts available on the Hellcat?
7. Would love to see the shift lights in action!
8. Will the owners be able to tune the 2015 Challenger line-up right out of the gate?

Thanks!

All my life I thought air was free, until I bought a bag of chips...

Congrats Gene! Talk about an opportunity of a lifetime!

We're all looking forward to the two stories that you will share with us upon your return, the experience of your trip and every ounce of intel that you can uncover on the Hellcat. Don't leave anything out!

Excellent idea about putting all of our member's questions in Post #7. That makes for an easy reference.

If you need some help with that, let me know.

Congrats to FT.

Couldn't think of a better person for the job.

Will you have access to a drag strip with the HC?

I'm hoping fob functions can be changed on the fly?

if your under a 15 you I could not tell the difference between 8-14

suspension looks identical to the last model from what I saw

rear 1/4 panel wheelwell lips have been folded over ( hemmed) to eliminate the tire rubbing on the body

as for exhaust they are not cutouts but 2 electrical motors ( one for each side exhaust pipe ) that open & close a flap in the exhaust pipe that are controlled by the cars computer that allow the exhaust to flow and sound louder

5. Measure the rear wheel wells - what is the fattest tire it will take without rolling the fenders?

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

This please!!!

We believe we have chosen the right man for the job to represent ChallengerTalk and who will be able to give an objective opinion of all aspects including performance, handling and braking. Congratulations to Flat Top who will soon be departing on an all expense paid trip to Oregon for the July 22 to 24, 2014 experience of a lifetime. We all envy you Gene! In Gene's own words, "I will be taking cameras Go Pros, laptop, pad, all the guns". I think he may be packed already.

We invite all members to ask any questions they have in this thread, especially on the Hellcat. On hand will be executives from the Dodge and SRT brands, Design, Engineering and Powertrain to answer any questions and Gene has promised he will do his best to pick their brains and gather as much information as is permitted.



Bernie
America The greatest country on the planet has produced the greatest muscle car on the planet. Great job! You have made the MOPAR community very proud…..Just one thing Gene Tell them to keep the price under 65K At 65K thay will sell a ton of Hellcats.

Great insight. You wouldn't by any chance know the fuse number, to pull, that keeps those flaps open?
