    They were way over priced, but that places main bread & butter comes from the sale of Porsches, Audis and Mercedes. The Hellcat was an oddball considering everything else they had on the floor.
    I had read your thread about going to pick up your recent purchase and wouldn't be opposed to going to one of the nearby states if the right car showed up.
    I've been looking mostly on cars.com when doing a search. I don't know if there a better way to find dealers inventory.
    One other question I was trying to answer to when going on dodge.com/build & price, is where the option is for the 3.09 gear? Was wondering if it is only available on the Redeye, and/or if available with the six speed?

    I built out a 2020 Redeye on the Dodge website and the 3.09 axle was an available option in the drivetrain section. I don't know if it was available in the Hellcat with a 6 speed build profile.

    I actually googled new 2019 Redeye near my zip code and 50 of them popped up on the East Coast. I did all the negotiations over the phone. That is the first car I ever bought without putting my eyeballs on it before buying it.

    I did have some assistance by a few guys here on FCBO. One of them is a Mopar Sales Manager in Canada. If you are going to get your dream car you have to think outside the box and maybe buy the car from a dealer in another state.

    It took longer to get my registration and plates than it did to buy the car. Maryland MVA and no temporary registration available in Massachusetts created the delay. I'm a 100% disabled Vet so I saved $750 by waiting on the Maryland MVA Disabled Veteran registration process.

    I've done that twice.
    First one was a Fly 'n Drive.
    Second one was an arranged Courtesy Delivery to my local dealer.
    If I ever do it again (although the possibility is near zero) I won't be doing #2.

    I was worried waiting for a month to get my Redeye but I'm glad I did it that way and ended up with the car I wanted instead of settling for a car on a local dealer lot. I have never done that before.

    Took the Scat Packout for a short ride today and then parked it. Then took the Redeye out for a longer ride. Pleasant afternoon!

    With the Govenor's order it would be hard to justify why I'm rolling around with a 500 HP 1978 NYB.
