I just hit the 1500 mile recommended break-in for track use. I am now ready for Hastings! Well almost, I still need to burnish the Carbon Ceramic brakes.3 gear burnout

Just for a quick reference here is the break-in procedure for your new Vipers.

The following tips will be helpful in obtaining optimum performance and maximum durability for your new SRT Vehicle. Despite modern technology and World Class manufacturing methods, the moving parts of the vehicle must still wear in with each other. This wearing in occurs mainly during the first 500 miles (805 km) and continues through the first oil change interval. It is recommended for the operator to observe the following driving behaviors during the new vehicle break-in period:

0 to 100 miles (0 to 161 km):
• Do not allow the engine to operate at idle for an extended period of time.
• Depress the accelerator pedal slowly and not more than halfway to avoid rapid acceleration.
• Avoid aggressive braking.
• Drive with the engine speed less than 3,500 RPM.
• Maintain vehicle speed below 55 mph (88 km/h) and observe local speed limits.

100 to 300 miles (161 to 483 km):
• Depress the accelerator pedal slowly and not more than halfway to avoid rapid acceleration in lower gears (1st to 3rd gears).
• Avoid aggressive braking.
• Drive with the engine speed less than 5,000 RPM.
• Maintain vehicle speed below 70 mph (112 km/h) and observe local speed limits.

300 to 500 miles (483 to 805 km):
• Exercise the full engine rpm range, shifting manually (paddles or gear shift) at higher rpms when possible.
• Do not perform sustained operation with the accelerator pedal at wide open throttle.
• Maintain vehicle speed below 85 mph (136 km/h) and observe local speed limits.

For the first 1500 miles (2414 km):
• Do no participate in track events, sport driving schools, or similar activities during the first 1500 mi (2414 km).

NOTE: Check engine oil with every refueling and add if necessary. Oil and fuel consumption may be higher through the first oil change interval.

CCM Brake Burnish Procedure

1. Apply the brakes 4 times starting at 50 mph (80 km/h) to 20 mph (30 km/h) while decelerating at 0.3 g.
2. Cool the brakes while driving 50 mph (80 km/h) for 3 minutes.
3. Apply the brakes 6 times starting at 90 mph (145 km/h) to 20 mph (30 km/h) while decelerating at 0.5 g.
4. Cool the brakes while driving 50 mph (80 km/h) for 3 minutes.
5. Apply the brakes 10 times starting at 90 mph (145 km/h) to 20 mph (30 km/h) while decelerating at 0.8 g.
6. Cool the brakes while driving 50 mph (80 km/h) for 3 minutes.

CAUTION:
• Do not come to a complete stop during the break-in procedure. This will imprint pad material onto the rotor, causing a vibration during future use.
• Perform the break-in procedure in a safe location. FCA does not endorse speeding on public roads; therefore, if a safe area cannot be used to achieve the speeds listed above, you must lower speeds to meet posted limits.
• Do not come to a complete stop when the system is hot and leave your foot on the pedal. Pad material will immediately transfer to the rotor causing a vibration during future use.

How are you supposed to safely conduct the braking, break in procedure, on public streets...
Seems like you need to rent a track for a day just to do all that.

Problems of the 1st world... I love it.
