    Yes, the standard WR2 Scat Pack aluminum Wheel... not the optional forged aluminum wheel.

    Kind of wondering exactly where we can (legally) drive these things - to unleash their potential - without getting hand-cuffed, etc. :eek:

    I'm lucky in that the US 131 Motorsports Park is just up the road and the Gingerman Raceway is only a little further. What you have in Kamloops I've got no Idea.

    According to build and price, 2018 Challenger is still a no-go for me. I can't get an AWD Challenger with the pearl interior, upgraded sound system, and spare tire.
    I could get a red interior, but that limits the exterior choices. Too many compromises for what would be a very close to $40k purchase, before discounts.That a some fool has decided to ship an "eco" tire on it, which compromises winter traction.

    RE: the "heavy incentives on Challenger".

    I've never seen a rebate on Challenger or Charger in 3 years of sell CJDR. (Canada)

    You guys get the raw end of the deal. Challenger is down here (only $1250) but Charger is still good ($3250).

    I was at Bettenhausen Dodge (one of the biggest dealers in the Midwest) test driving challengers yesterday. However, the dodge brand manager there said that there has been no information about B5 Blue making a return at all this year. He has multiple F8 Green Challengers in route for next week but does not expect B5 this year. I am pretty sure all the press releases had B5 lined up with F8 for a late availability. Has this changed? Thanks guys

    Nice trickle down. Looking forward to what the Mustang and Camaro folks come up with as an excuse if/when the Challenger continues to take the pony sales crown. Has 2018 model year started yet for the Challenger?

    They are rushing the refresh already to 2019 because of the sales slide.

    Maybe transformers are out of style? But what's the next toy line they can model their cars after?

    The Mustang and Camaro are great sports cars but compromised for day to day use. You should see my sister in law put her golf clubs in her Camaro. I like the six hooker trunk in my Challenger. Also I'm 6 feet tall and my wife is 6'6" we appreciate the extra interior room.

    When all the '18 Challenger Demon press info came out in early summer they had all the colors available shown and B5 blue, F8 green, Indigo blue and plum crazy purple were all listed as "late availability". When '18 production started in the last week of July, F8 green and Indigo blue were listed as being available now to order with B5 and purple still bring listed as late availability. I know F8 is a go right now because I myself ordered a '18 Challenger T/A 392 in F8 last week and it's been assigned a VIN and scheduled for production. I have also seen a few pics of a indigo blue '18 Charger online so that color is also available now. I believe what's going to happen is that they'll run F8 and Indigo for the first 1/2 of the model year and then replace them with B5 and purple. That's what they've done in the past with special colors. That's also why I put my order in now for F8 as I didn't want to chance not being able to get it later on.

    Thanks! I hope so, I've been waiting for a B5 Blue RT with the Dynamic Performance package. Drove a black one and loved the feel. my 2015 Charger SXT AWD just doesn't have the power or sound.
