WB wheels are a lot better looking than Demon's wheels! I think Demon's look cheap.

I thought I read somewhere that there were suspension mods, also.

So $10K for fender flares and bigger wheels and tires? Wow.

Care to compare how much it would cost to add flares and a good set of 20x11 forged wheels wrapped in 305s?

I'll wait.

I know it's not cheap. However, the OEMs can do it cheaper than you and I can, especially since they're not replacing existing wheels and tires like we would be. They're starting from scratch. I was hoping there would be some more track-focused suspension mods, rather than what is basically a wheel and tire package. Yes, shaving two seconds off the lap time is impressive. But I was hoping for more in the hardware department. Don't get me wrong, it's still an awesome car.

It also has electric power steering that can be varied thru the SRT settings.

An exec at FCA must've got a hold of a JC Whitney Catalog....

Also, on utube, the man that did the testing said the fat car, er I mean fat fender car was slower than a non-fat-cat in top speed due to fender flare drag.
