Very much looking forward to it especially after having previously attended it at Wakins Glen YEARS ago, in addition to some other schools/training...

I think it'll be easy enough to ID/spot other HCF.org members there:

Hey, are y'all on the HCF.org?

Yeah...

What's your screen-name?

Go fuck yourself.

Hey, I know you!

I'd LOVE to see @DGatzby and some of the other resident track whores there as a ringer..."you mean like this...?" Who in the name of the Holy sweet Gee Bus threshold braking, front end preloading, peak apex smashing asshole is this guy?! We got The Stig up in this motherfucker!

Should be a hoot, more likely a hoot and a half!

Nice to beat the snot out of their vehicles and it’s a testament to their engineering that they only typically need routine (extreme duty) maintenance so GTO (gas, tires and oil!)/fluids and brake pads.

With that being said in full disclosure I did attend a similar GM event at their proving grounds here in extreme SW AZ and couldn’t believe the hammering their class vehicles were taking on a regular basis; same deal with the Vettes and RWD V-8 interceptor type sedans we drove; extreme duty maintenance schedule and to their credit they didn’t miss a beat; very impressive to say the least.

I'm an AZ native and I wanted to do it sooner rather than later and if you can pull May off you may wanna do that, it's gonna be near 80 there tomorrow and when "winter" starts to work its way out of here it gets hot AF fast! Best thing about the hot/summer weather is it drives the snowbirds out of here, which is fine with me!

Yes I agree, I spent some time just west of Phoenix in Tolleson for work. I would go out there for weeks on end at different times of the year and had planned to move out there until the company ran into financial problems and closed the shop out there. I still have a good dear friend that lives in Goodyear and he keeps trying to get me to come out and work for Viking. Hoping to spend some time and visit with them while we're out there then maybe hop over to Vegas for a few days and catch a show and dinner (not much into gambling)
We are aiming for May, I hope, just trying to work out the days off! I'm out of vacation until May 1st:( and can not schedule next years vacation until the banks open up at the end of April:mad:

Have fun tomorrow, you are going to love it! You only get to use the black key, but honestly for most of what you are doing out there, you don't really need the extra power.

Well dang, that must have been a lot of fun on the road course!

I was doing the standard SRT Experience, did you do something more?

What do you suppose will happen when the fleet of hellcats are no longer repairable or it is no longer feasible to keep them?

very good question. i am nearly certain Bondurant/Radford have had a sponsorship/business arrangement with Dodge for quite a few years. With Dodge going full woke, I would say all bets are off after this year as far as factory support.

Another nail in the coffin. It’s a wonderful place to drive these beasts. Been there for the two day and three day since the srt experience. Simply indescribable.

Dan Bullock told me Dodge supplied the cars and parts to maintain them. All of them are stock the way they come from the factory right down to the pzero Pirellis. The only thing not stock are the pads and rotors.
