im an industrial electrician, regular working dude. just picked up a 2016 scat pack with the tremec 6 speed.
super stoked on the car so far. noticed a real faint hot oil smell last few days after getting off the highway, the car is stock and had just had the oil changed recently so I'm wondering if that's it but not sure if this is common.
also the car has 18,000 miles, any tips or suggestions that are helpful would be greatly appreciated. thanks to all.

I would make sure that the oil filter is not leaking as well as the drain plug. Easiest way is to put the car on a hoist & drop the belly pan to check for leaks. The upper engine area & transmission should be checked as well. If the leak is very small, the belly pan will prevent the oil from dripping on the ground.
