What is the shift points on our A8 cars set at from the factory?
What does everyone feel is a "safe" rpm to shift at?

Stock commanded shift point in the standard Hellcat is 6,000 RPM and 6300 for RE.

I'd not recommend going over 6400 in standard Hellcat. RE I'm not 100% sure. People seem to be pushing them a bit further but I lost my original Hellcat engine and I think pushing the RPMs too far contributed to the failure.

So shift points set @ 6300 should be totally safe?
I've read that these cars can over rev in the 1 to 2 and 3 to 4 shifts by sometimes 400 rpms. If this is correct wouldnt that over spin the motor?

Yep, you have to account for that in the tuning.

In manual mode at full throttle mine shifts at 6400/6500. Plenty high for me. Not worth it to me to go 1/10th quicker in the quarter to have it shift at 6800.
