Bought the car in December bone stock with 8000 miles. Knew the previous owner so I paid a little of a premium knowing it was a cared for, garaged, never raced car. I came from a scat pack that I had Satera Tuning, tune last year so I already knew where the car was going.


I decided to go with the Satera Sattun 900 package and the Satera True Flex Fuel set up. Car ended up being a bit of a factory freak and I cannot say enough about Jeremy and his team. The knowledge, care, and quality of work was everything you hope to recieve at this kind of level. For now I am just stuck doing some odds and ends until the track opens and I can see what she does. If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

Love the stripes and accent pin stripes. Also note it was dyno'd using STD correction which is going to read higher than SAE correction. Based on the mods in that package, the numbers look about right so I wouldn't say its a factory freak. Your DR's eat up some of the power on the dyno, but with that pulley combination, you've got to be running around 18psi of boost. Always good to get some feedback from the lesser used tuners and shops. You don't hear much about Satera on the forums even though they seem to do quality work.

Thank you. My scat was black as well so i had to do something in the looks department to set this one apart a bit. The dyno numbers really dont impress me nor do I really care what the dyno says. Proof will be at the track. On his dyno he has never had a hellcat with this package be above 880s so its done its job. Regardless we can compare dyno numbers and find abnormalities and this is higher than that all day. Just hope to get to a track soon as you cannot manipulate those numbers! Sadly the dyno numbers is all I have for now...

Track numbers have just as many variables if not more than a dyno, but I get what you're saying. You built the car to race so you dont care about the dyno.

Thank you! I got the scat down to 11.5 with very minor mods before making my plan that has now been completed. Very excited to see what this one can do!

Should be low 10's or high 9's depending on track, weather, driver, etc.

Good luck with the runs. See that it has the nostrils so that's a new front end (2017s did not come with that). Keep us posted. And keep waving that four door flag.

Car is a beast, should easily skip the 10's with traction. It is a mid 9's car with the power with a decent 60'

Again, its going to come down to track prep, weather, and driver. Skipping 10's isn't easy without those factors.

Great build!

Please explain to me how the driver makes a difference on an automatic car with traction? Back in the day you had to shift the auto for a certain rpm which with today's electronics you leave it in drive. I see if one driver is 135 lbs and the other is 300 lbs then the driver does make a difference. I never understand why this comes up on an auto. Stick, hell yeah the driver makes a difference!

Going to have to pedal it in locations with less than optimum traction. Can't just go WOT; it'll still spin unless you've got a really first class launch control and use it. I was initially impressed with the GT500 LC but upon further observation am less so. Even good drivers who have used it say it is often like the Hellcat LC - difficult to use, inconsistent, and laborious. I don't really get this, personally - other marques have come out with basically idiot proof LCs and the HC has all the sensors needed. It's just a programming problem that they can't seem to master for some reason.

Are you serious? Trying to get the most out of a car with over 1000hp, even a stock Hellcat takes practice.

I understand what you you are thinking. However, every car is quite different. Some cars like launching at 1k rpm, some from idle, others from 2k. I have yet to talk to someone who has their best run using launch control. The driver mod is minimal, but it does matter.

Not to mention on these types of cars its not wait for green and mash the pedal... there is a LITTLE bit of an art to it!
