Of course I dont go bouncing the engine of the rev limiter every time I get in them either.

I just drive it like normal and if I feel like punching it, I do

I also noticed the wording changed on my latest Yamaha motorcylce purchase. (Bought a brand new FZ-10 last month).
It stated "Do not go over 6000rpm for extended periods for the first 600 miles".
We need to know how they define "extended"

Sweet ride, always loved the 4 door cats! Iíve raced a few in the 1 at race events. Pretty cool how much power they are capable of on the stock motor/trans.

I donít recall low to mid 150ís for sure, that was a stock Cat and I was only on 18psi. Both of us had passengers, Pretty sure at that time I still had the 155 mph speed limiter. The car now does 160 mph at those events plus or minus a couple mph depending on weather conditions

Congrats on the Hellcat Charger!

Had a Charger SRT as a rental for 2.5 weeks and toured TX, AR, MS, TN, AL, FL, LA and back to TX in 2016. Was an awesome trip, but the car is indeed huge. Feels "larger" than my E39 at least, but it was a great car. Tires didn't hold up properly though hahahaha

Enjoy and safe drive!

These Pirelli summer tires indeed can't hold this power. I have gotten wheel on accident a couple times. I'm running them till they are done, though. Then I guess I'll see what options I have.
