You got that backwards.

Widebody aside...charger has more room than challenger.
thanks for the clarification. I will go with the 315/50 and take some pictures and share with the group. <cross fingers, if this will work!>

Today was a mix-bag of updates on the build.......

Mod parts will be in next week and hopefully get into the shop next two weeks. Thus upgrading hp and tuning.

Weld S79 wheels, not so good...8 to 10 weeks lead time. One day this build will be completed. The only thing to do...deep breath! lol

Looks like a stage 3 build. But I guess stage 4 sounds faster and pricier.

I would go ahead and give you this advice based on what I’ve read from your posts so far.

- you are excited. That’s awesome. The car is going to be amazing. And it will be really really fast.

- you haven’t got this all thought out perfectly, your letting others guide your decision. Not horrible, you have good people guiding you from what I see.

- unless you have a pretty experienced drag racing background, 8’s aren’t coming for a while.

- you got some good money in this build. And just to help out with what I know, you need to stuff about 10-20k more on top of this build and be prepared to spend it. It’s not a matter of if, it’s when. Hopefully everything is perfect, that includes you in how you handle the car.

- good luck and have fun, things are gonna get rowdy just don’t be a knucklehead. Respect the car. Or it will go boom and you will be paying Curts and others mortgage for the year.

Thank you for the advice WhipCat. Really do appreciate the feedback.
One of the main reasons why I post on the forums is to get everyone's feedback and perspective.

A great lesson I learned years ago; always listen to the people that agree with you...but value the people providing a different perspective or totally disagreeing with you.

You need 315/50/17 for that power level. 15 minutes of hammering each wheel well with a 4lb hammer and you are good to go. I recommend spray painting the bare metal after hammering obviously. If you don't pin the liner back when you are done, the tires will rub a little hole in them. The other option is to run a 3mm spacer when you are done hammering. I wouldn't run anymore on a car at that power level.
