Anyone going to the show, PLEASE shoot some pics of a YELLOW BLAZE on any model so we can get a good look at how it looks.

Will the Boss have 'MyKey'?
Also anyone know if it will continue the dreadful skip-shift trend?

Most likely, which is a good thing. Otherwise, you'd be paying the gas guzzler tax. I'll gladly take the skip shift and save myself $1500 in GGT. Bypassing the skip shift is an easy and cheap fix. At least it was on my 2010 Challenger.

I think it's real easy to bypass, just press the right pedal harder

Why is everyone worried about the skip-shift? Where is the proof that the GG tax was avoided just from that one tool?

I don't think there is any. This new engine with manual even without skip shift should easily bypass the gas guzzler. I don't foresee the Boss will suffer any similar fate. It they can avoid GG with a GT500 I don't think the Boss is in any danger.

Right but the GT500 has skip-shift...

Correct but I just don't see it happening. I could be wrong and we can all point fingers when the truth comes out but I just don't see it happening. The 6 spd alone helps. I can see them getting 23 highway at least. If not, I suppose I will eat my words.

Are you sure about that? I may have missed it elsewhere but this is the first time I have seen any mention of that. The GT500 uses a Tremec 6-speed, not the Getrag found in the GT. Do you have a link to where you read that?

I don't think it has Skip-Shift. I've never heard of that. But I don't know for sure.

Skip shift, who cares? Press the pedal down farther or buy the $10 inline-harness to defeat it.

gt500 doesn't have it and still avoids the guzzler tax for 2011. i think they said for the new 5.0 GTs the skip shift was not to avoid guzzler tax (it would have avoided that anyway) it was to get the MPG up for cafe and marketing reasons.

Which avoids the GGT. My '08 GT500 did not have it, my 2010 Challenger does. It's no big deal, just buy the bypass harness.

If an option is not available on the base GT, it probably won't be available on the Boss.

Sorry wasn't aware of it not being an option on the GT; it is on the v6 I assume?

I thought MyKey was standard across the lineup for 2011...
