Hello Fello Mopar Mavins,

I have had my 2010 SRT M6 for about 7 months and 600 miles now.

As I have talked about it before I bought the car from a Toyota dealer last June with 8,270 actual miles and a Magnason Super Charger. Otherwise stock as far as I can tell.

I do not know when the SC was installed or how the car was treated. I do know thru Carfax that I am the 3rd owner. Do not know the other owners.

Original owner had it for 5 years and 6000 miles.

Second owner 2.5 years and 2200 miles.

The reason for this post is that I have been researching to find out how the car was treated, when the SC was put on and just general info.

I read somewhere that you can find out the highest top speed the car has gone by using the EVIC. Go to the display digital speed function (shows 0 since car not moving) Hold the > key for a few seconds and the top speed of the car will display.

Low and behold it did, 109.3 MPH.

I have not had the car that fast yet so I know it was not me.

So the big question is, how is this reset?

Is this really the fastest this car has gone?

Does disconnecting the battery reset it?

This is important to me because if it cant be reset and that is the fastest this car ever went this would be a great indication this car was not beat. On the other hand, if it is simple to reset the 109.3 number really means nothing.

Thanks for your time,

Varooom

Well, I left the battery disconnected last night.

That did not reset it, still 109.3.

I cant imagine a 600hp (estimated crank) car has never gone over 110 mph in its 7 plus years of life, but it sure is looking that way.

I have good news and bad news...

The good is that I believe your car has never gone above 109 MPH. With the 2015 and up Challengers, it will show some crazy high speed was done with a brand new car before you bought it. That is fake news. The factory tests the speedometer before they install it, and they don't bother to reset it.

The bad is I don't know if it was the same way in 2010. Nor do I know how to reset it, or maybe you can't?? I don't think disconnecting the battery in this case will help to reset things.

A Guy,

Thanks for the reply and thanks for popping my bubble.

I will try that today and see if it resets.

BTW: Where did you find this info. I have been searching for days.

Thanks again,

Just one of the little things that add up. In itself 109 doesn't mean much, but if you look at a few other things like:

Original tires, verified by date code on tires.

Lack of rubber in and around wheel wells. Yes the rubber could have been washed off but there was dirt there.

Might not mean much to you Hollywood, but is says a lot to me.

Thanks for your response,
