New 2012 Pitch Black SRT in the garage :)

Just picked up or new SRT this evening and all I can say is WOW! It came with the driver confidence group and the sunroof. Our RT Max was bad-ass but this ride is amazing!

Already hit a dead deer on the way home and the front fascia and the entire underside is covered in blood and some guts hanging down. After cleaning everything off, no damage was found.

This is the wife's ride, but ill probably hold it hostage for a few days.

I had a chance to check out the "Timers" feature. I eased into the throttle to try and keep it from spinning and also let the Charger do the shifting. I had quite a bit of spin still and let off a little early. Not an overly impressive report, but I'm sure if I made a couple of attempts, I could improve the times some more.

No offence but I wouldn't let you drive my future next brand new ride with the luck you have. Is it even possible to be that unlucky with new cars?
