Re: The First 300 Miles with my 2014 SRT GC: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Damn - 300? I'm at 150!!

Sorry about the rash, could have been worse though.

And I completely concur about all the bells and whistles. There are plenty of things to keep you distracted. I haven't tried an SD card yet, guess I need to load one up and see how it works. What class card do you have? There may be an issue with that causing the trouble with recognition...

Granite looks good - that would have been my second choice

The dealer had already ordered a new rim to have on hand and my salesman is going to see if he can get a discounted price but they retail for $1450 US each. Now that it has been a few days since the incident I have decided that the damage isn't bad enough to warrant purchasing an entirely new rim. I think that I can wet sand the scratches a little and the brake dust will blend the scratches in with the rest of the wheel.

Closer to 400 now. I am shooting for 500 by Friday so I can take my Jeep to the track Friday night and test out launch control.

I think that it is a class 10 but I could be wrong. I haven't really had any problems lately.

Thanks! It was actually my second choice as well. Billet wasn't available when Mark placed my order so he ordered Granite and then told me after the fact. I am actually glad that I went with the darker color. Max Blue Steel isn't so bad either.

Re: The First 300 Miles with my 2014 SRT GC: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

It will be interesting to see how it goes at the track. You have more patience than me though, I can say LC works Although I do think it is limited because it doesn't pull the RPMs up much at all right now...

I remember reading in one version of the manual that Launch Control won't kick in until after the first 500 miles (just checked it's on pg 312 of the current version) so I haven't even tried it. I guess that isn't the case but since I am so close I might as well wait it out and test it at the track.

Re: The First 300 Miles with my 2014 SRT GC: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

I read that as well, which is why I had to hit the button. I was curious what it would do. It activates, but I think it is in wimpy mode...

We'll see when I hit 500 miles if it changes.
