    I already had the blue top solenoids so it feels exactly the same as before. I'm going to do a write-up on it in a few days.

    This information is great. I just don't have a membership to that dealers connect to read what those links show. 30mm cold from tip of dipstick going all the way until it stops to 70mm from the tip when hot? That's about what I know from what I have read over the last couple years. I'm using the dipstick from my 11 Charger RT to check my 06 Charger SXT transmission fluid level while changing the fluid. I had the shudder problem with just over 300,000 miles on the 06 SXT. I did get a lot of grey out of the bottom of the pan the first and second time of draining it. Second not so bad. The dipstick for my 11 RT is longer than the one for the SXT, so it does go in until it stops, then I can measure how full it is. When cold, just sitting, it was in the full hot zone, but when I start it and run it through the gears, it only measured 10mm. Which on the 11 transmission dipstick is safe for cold. Exact same spot my 11 RT measures on it's dipstick. But it's the proper length dipstick for that car.
    Thank you,
    Mark
