    This car is asinine, stupid, and pointless, and I absolutely love it. It's four-wheeled proof that nobody can Mopar quite like Mopar can Mopar.

    Ford: "Let's use an aluminum body and turbocharging to make the most fuel-efficient half-ton pickup ever."

    GM: "Let's build the most useful, middle-class-friendly range-extended electric car and pure electric car on the market."

    Dodge: "Hey bro, I bet if we put enough horses in a Challenger it'll wheelie off the line."

    So? It's engineered for the drag strip, not canyons.

    It's tuned for the Drag Strip, and I don't see any "corners" on timed drag runs :hi:

    Here's the irony: this car is so fast with just factory performance that the NHRA won't let it compete with factory safety features, instead requiring a roll cage (which it doesn't come with).

    http://jalopnik.com/heres-why-the-dodge-challenger-srt-demon-is-banned-by-t-1794240969

    So it's built to be the fastest stock-from-the-factory drag racer ever, but it's not actually allowed to drag race in stock-from-the-factory form. Dodge could fix this with a factory roll cage so it's actually allowed to drag race in factory trim, but until they do, this car is a bit of a paradox.

    I know people with daily drivers over 750HP, running just as fast at the drag strip, and their car can corner like a champ because it's not a land yacht ;)
