Your wife happy with your decision :LOL:

This morning was an interesting talk...


She asked me how many other wives that I was aware of would let their husbands do this?



I said, only ONE....

Warranty applies as long as you don't take it to the track, FYI which seems kinda useless to me where else can you use 885hp?

You can say, 2. I don't want to do it. She would be OK with it.

I definitely agree there are less expensive options to reach more power. For me, I am lucky to be pretty tight with a couple of the techs that happen to be at the closest power broker to me. So in this case, I like the dealer backing and some sort of warranty that I'll get. It will fold in under my Mopar protection plan so I should be good to go for a while.
I thought I read somewhere that it would not violate the original factory warranty but it would void Mopar extended warranties?

Reminds me of Tommy Boy. The general population worried about the warranty isn't going to break the car. Most all my cars didn't have one and I figured if they break then I will fix it.

That was the only reason I was interested, but they dithered for so long my warranty is up & there is no reason to pay for the DC offering when I can do better having a good shop install the hardware (all readily available) & get a custom tune.

Thought about this a lot since the #7 car revel last nite. Not many places to use that kind of power and the car is not even set-up for road racing. So, unless you drag race or just want it as a collector piece, not much chance you'll be able to exercise all the power/features. Heck, it's getting hard to even put the spurs to my lowly 707 Hellcat before running across slow traffic, cops, wildlife sprinting across the road etc. Missing the covid lock-downs in a weird way - LOL! No cops, no traffic - WHOO HOO !!

This is why a Scat Pack is the best street car. You can mash it and it won't be at 100 in a few seconds.

I would expect a Demon 170 to have a warranty that covers track time like the original Demon. These DC add ons do not, however so value of warranty is a bit diminished IMO and unless you just bought a 2022 or 2023 that warranty clock is already ticking pretty good.

When I upgraded mine the last go around I did have to play with the throttle in the tune a bit to make it manageable when I'm mildly getting on the throttle. Mike from OST helped me a bit there as well, smooooooooth now.

Wife said your not getting one. I knew what she meant. She actually followed up on what is expected production numbers. She wasn’t saying I can’t. She’s a keeper. My answer was I want one but not to sell my wallet and soul ADM Demons

Yeah I got same from my wife too. Told her all about the big reveal, the specs, etc and she was like don’t think you’re getting one. Of course I said hell no with the crazy mark ups no way I’d consider it. 😂😂😂

I find the hellcat on factory 275's to be a joke.

I find the hellcat on 315's to be about perfect

I find a hellcat making 900-1000whp+ on 315's to be borderline tarded.

After mine got its first tune, driving back on 275s was crazy. They would break loose with barely a tap on the throttle.

What over-rules all is the small little detail in the “warranty” language. It basically indicates as soon as you enter any event where it is timed against another or shown on a board (racing), your done. Unless it is a innocent test and tune for yourself, or a standard HPDE for us people who go left and right (time trial or not lap-done also warranty is up), nada, it is racing. Sorry.

Everything is recorded in the computer. All they have to do is pull the data and then can decide if they will cover it or it has been determined to be abuse.
