    Challenger SRT Demon To Come With Acknowledgement Agreement

    Sign in to follow this  

      If you're ordering a Demon, you'll be signing one of these

    The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is one of the wildest vehicles ever to go on sale. Because of this, Dodge is having all of the buyers sign an acknowledgment form to know what they are getting themselves into. 

    Allpar obtained a copy of the form which requires a buyer to initial 15 lines and provide a signature. A dealership employee must witness the signing and provide their own signature. The form then has to be notarized before being sent off to FCA.

    The document has some items that are straightforward such as the buyer assuming all risks in driving a drag vehicle, not letting passengers ride in the vehicle without having the seats installed, and reading the owners manual. There are some other parts of the document that gives some idea of the restrictions being put on by Dodge.

    • Lines 6 through 8 deal with the Demon's tires - a set of Nitto NT05R drag radials. You are asked to avoid driving on the highway as the tires will wear quickly. You are also asked to not drive it in the rain due to hydroplaning. Line 8 is the most explicit, saying you should not move the Demon in temperatures below 15 degrees Fahrenheit, as the tires may crack from lack of flexibility.
    • Line 5 asks the customer to promise not to use any track-specific features, like launch control, on public roads.
    • Line 15 has the customer acknowledge that they either paid MSRP or higher. As we reported this week, dealers that price the Demon above MSRP will see their orders pushed to the back.

    You can out the full document on Allpar.

    Interesting Reading, so to pick up your demon, they will have to schedule to have a notary on site. Pretty much what I would expect for this type of auto with all the restrictions. I am surprised they do not state what type of street tires must be used.

    Overall very COOL! :metal: 

    Love that nothing says you cannot drag race the auto.

    Cool...but honestly I have more respect for people like Subaru who build mass market performance cars aimed at something other than drag racing.

    If you want to go drag racing, eighty five grand will buy you something faster than the Demon, a tow vehicle, an enclosed trailer, extra parts, and a year of fuel and entry fees.

    Seems a bit over the top. This is one of two things. Lawyer (CYA) mandated, or marketing hype.

    Lawyer mandated - absolutely.

    This is also general fare for risk and reputational management these days.

    Let's face it.  This car is NOT a daily driver at all.  It is a toy.

    The form is what the adults must sign to show that they will still be adults with their expensive toy.

    More troublesome is FCA mentally reverting to 1970 when it is 2017

    It is almost like watching a dying man have one last good Memory before he passes.

    FWIW back in the sixties people signed waiver also for car like this.

      I’ve driven my fair share of Challengers on both extremes - from the standard V6 to the high-performance SRT and Hellcat models. But I never had any time behind the wheel of the R/T with its 5.7 V8. That changed in the summer when a bright orange Charger R/T Shaker was dropped off for a week. This allowed me to ask a question that has been sitting in my head for some time: Is the R/T the best bang for your buck in the Challenger family?
      The Shaker sets itself apart from other Challenger models with the use of a ‘Shaker’ scoop that prominently pops up from the hood. There is also a blackout treatment on several trim pieces and wheels that make it look even more imposing on the road. Along with the scoop, the Shaker package does add a new cold-air intake seated right in front of the driver’s side corner. This addition should boost the output of the 5.7L HEMI V8 (372 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque when paired with the eight-speed automatic. But FCA’s spec sheet doesn’t say anything about the Shaker Package adding more oomph or not. When you first start up the R/T Shaker, it makes presence known with a deep and loud exhaust note. I had to do a double-take the first time as I was wondering if I was given either an R/T Scat Pack or a Hellcat by mistake. While it may lack the high power numbers of the 6.4 and supercharged 6.2 V8s, the 5.7 is no slouch. 60 mph comes in at just over five seconds and power is seemingly available at any speed. My tester came with the optional Performance Handling Group that adds upgraded springs, sway bars, and a set of Bilstein shocks. This does improve the handling by a fair amount with less body roll. But it doesn’t feel nimble due to a curb weight of around 4,158 pounds. The steering has a quick response, but there is a noticeable lack of road feedback. If you want your muscle car to have some handling, consider the Camaro or Mustang. Nothing new to report on the Challenger’s interior. It still has the angled center stack, retro-inspired gauges, and easy to use UConnect infotainment system. The seats are where the Challenger loses some points as it feels like you’re sitting on top of cinderblocks. The Shaker package is surprisingly good value, adding $2,500 to the base price of the R/T which begins at $34,295. But you’ll need to be careful on the option sheet, or you’ll end up with something quite expensive. My tester came with an as-tested price of $46,555, which is $300 more than an R/T Scat Pack Widebody with the 6.4 HEMI V8.  The Dodge Challenger is getting up there in age and sadly cannot compete with the likes of the Camaro and Mustang in terms of handling. But Dodge is still able to offer a lot of performance in the form of the R/T. With a potent V8 engine, old school styling, and different packages like the Shaker to make your Challenger stand out, the R/T is possibly the best value and well-rounded model in the lineup.

    • Seems Ford has a Solution for killing 99.9% of Covid-19 in Police Explorers. There is a new setting that will boost the interior temperature to 133 degrees for 15 min to kill 99.9$ of all virus / bacteria in the auto. https://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2020/05/here-comes-the-heat/ In additional auto news, seems Acura has decided to ditch as the story says the McPherson Struts. Quote: We’re of course talking about double wishbones, which Acura confirmed will be found up front in the 2021 TLX. If you were worried the TLX would end up as a flashy retread of your basic Honda Accord or the like, breathe easy — the new car rides atop a dedicated platform, with the eradication of the current-generation model’s MacPherson strut setup lending credence to Acura’s promise of the “quickest, best-handling, and most well-appointed sport sedan in Acura history.” https://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2020/05/back-to-the-future-acura-tlx-ditches-the-macphersons/#more-1722464
    • Seems Renault and Nissan have ruled out a merger of the companies but have decided to close plants and build both Companies auto's in the same plant in regions where it makes sense to save money and become more efficient. Renault and Nissan are going with a global EV platform that both companies will use to build and sell global EVs to be more efficient at lower costs than the competition. Interesting read on their direction and future. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-autos-nissan-renault-alliance-costs/renault-and-nissan-rule-out-merger-as-they-unveil-survival-plan-idUSKBN2330T6 23 states have sued the Potus45 administration over the rollback of efficiency standards for auto's. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-autos-emissions/u-s-states-sue-trump-administration-over-fuel-efficiency-rollback-idUSKBN2332UT To quote the story: Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel called the rule a “gift to the fossil fuel industry” that would harm the state, home to Detroit’s Big Three automakers, because it would reduce automotive-related employment by 4%. She said automakers were afraid of a “mean tweet” from U.S. President Donald Trump.
    • Tesla Y AWD as no RWD or FWD version available starts at $48,690.
    • Interesting editorial on the Pandemic and how it will kill the Sports car. https://www.thedrive.com/new-cars/33474/will-the-pandemic-kill-the-sports-car-as-we-know-it Yup, they predict the death of the Mustang and Camaro as we know it with manual transmission being history. Very interesting read. This one is also interesting as FCA has shared access to the potential Dodge version of the 1993 Grand Cherokee. https://www.thedrive.com/news/33690/rare-photo-shows-never-made-dodge-version-of-the-1993-jeep-grand-cherokee Final bit for those that love off road auto's is this Semi Truck custom ride with 1,100 HP. https://www.thedrive.com/accelerator/33699/this-1100-hp-off-road-semi-truck-is-perfect-for-minor-errands
    • So, aside from the “off-menu”, stripped model 3 for “$35K”, up until yesterday the 3 was $40 grand to start. Too high above the median family sedan level, IMO. What is the price for the Y?
