    Yeah I think I did pretty good. And they gave me good trade in on the shelby. It was bitter sweet leaving eleanor behind, but dang this thing is like an overpowered go cart! It handles good too for a big car. Really impressed with the power and the brakes. Man the brakes stop its weight really good. Super predictable when it drifts. No suprizes when it steps out. Very controllable. The exhaust seems to sound perfect. Lovin it so far for sure.

    Wait til you put 305/35/20 555Rs or R888Rs on it!
    I had my regular Hellcat on 555Rs as a daily and it was perfect. I wasn’t a fan on the stock tires but the stock traction control is amazing.
    How do you like the trans? Drive modes?
    I’m a die hard stick guy but that ZF 8A is a bad dude.
    Rattles you in track mode shifting.
    Also, I hope it’s the same on the current cars, but I could double tap the SRT button and it would put the car in my custom drive settings.
    Enjoy man!
    Shows what Fords been missing with building for the street/strip crowd.

    Man like you, Ive always been a manual shifter. I would have no other than the automatic in this beast though! I have become an instant fan...It bangs them out fast and crisp in sport mode. Smooth rev matching and the decel pops are awesome too. This tranny with this level of power is super sweet man. Total package is dreamy for sure. The paddles and auto stick mode are cool. Really gonna dig the power chiller after break in too. It is basically a “killer chiller” from the factory, without the headaches of the aftermarket units. No more heat soak when doing hot temp or repeated passes.

    Did you paint the Cobra on the wall? Looks great, and I don't blame you for not wanting to lose it. Maybe paint a RedEye next to it on the wall and over the Cobra put PAST and over the RedEye, put PRESENT. LOL.

    You're going to continue to have a blast with that Hellcat RedEye. I liken it to loving to drive my modded '03 Cobra. I couldn't get enough of it. LOL.

    The brakes are what blew me away on mine. I have ceramic pads and it stops like a mini cooper.

    Agreed. Ive had 2 modded vettes and a few good performance cars. Even though its 4,500lbs, it stops better than anything Ive ever driven.
