2021 Challenger Scat Pack
ok, wow. ordered mine 9/27 fingers crossed that the dealer was right.
Unlikely that will happen but surely you know someone who can be there when the car comes in to take pics of everything including the odometer.I ordered a 2021 Challenger R/T Shaker in October and now it's in the shipping stage. I'm so excited for it's arrival, but it will be a few days after it's delivery before I can pick her up. My concern is that while it's "sitting" at the dealership, some hot head employee of theirs will swipe the keys and be out redlining it like a total douchebag! Does anyone know how the testing/inspection at the factory works? Will the car come with a blank slate? I am aware that it may get a few miles on it due to loading and unloading while in transit but if there is already a fastest time on it, I should be concerned, right?
Any help with this would be appreciated very much!!!
Top speed and fastest time are not the same. Top speed is usually produced during testing after the build. It's a part of inspection. Fastest time is 0-60, someone ripping gears to get to 60 as quick as possible potentially causing damage to my car, that's my concern.I can't say it's not a possibility, and I think you touched on an excellent point - the top speed might not be accurate, have a gander at what I found when I had the same concern - the top speed numbers might be super high if they test it on a lift.

I would say any more than 10-12 miles would be suspect.
True story: my late brother in law ordered a brand new black Z-28 back in 1982 when they first went to the F-Body. He went to go pick it up at the dealership ... it had more than 300 miles on the clock. Poor fellow had to take the dealership to court to get the deposit back.
Check behind the wheels for tire rubber particles indicative of burnouts as well. I'll bet you will easily detect any wrongdoing on your inspection. Just my three cents though, take with a large block of salt.
If this happens it will be a dealer issue, there is no one in transit running these cars like this.Fastest time is 0-60, someone ripping gears to get to 60 as quick as possible potentially causing damage to my car, that's my concern.
