    Fleet mileage is a huge priority so if they can save weight, paint is one of the areas. Every little bit helps, especially on high volume cars/suvs, etc.

    I doubt it's because of weight for transportation purposes. Possibly weight to meet increasing MPG requirements. Another area where they have been cutting weight is with your rotors. My 90's era cars had rotors you could turn 3 times before replacing. Now, even new ones are so thin you have to replace them with every brake job....and they warp easily.

    I don't want to de-rail John's Demon thread, so my apologies John. I'm sure you'll enjoy the new ride, and junior will too in 16 years when he steals those keys while your asleep. :)

    The cars have had several issues pop up during assembly, including catching fire on transport trucks, rear main seal failure, fit and finish, mis-routed fuel lines... typical Dodge stuff.

    You mean, being part of Fiat hasn't improved Chrysler's products?

    ;)

    In seriousness, it's good that they're trying to be proactive in fixing glitches before the car gets to its buyer -- especially in the case of a pricey "special".

    Just like the Fords did many years ago. Like your TV, DVD player or AVR when you shut them off they are not really off. Many components stay on and energized so when you hit the car fob it starts. One bad part can over heat to the point of fire in some cases. ESPECIALLY if it has anything to do with say a fuel flow and say FIRE i.e. spark...

    Bring it out to Pomona and run it down the track if they’ll let you. I’ve read that you can’t run it down the track without a roll cage though.

    Only a modified hellcat...but it turns really well with viper tires all the way around. Too bad I think it is still going to be crushed after a few round track trials.ist0qcny3wfw.jpg

    Yeah, that was April 4th, middle of "next week" on April 4th would have been last Wednesday. Hence the reason he asked today since we are approaching the middle of the week after "next week".

    Maybe he's just driving around and not worried about posting here?

    I know I would be.
