This week Paul and Todd of Everyday Driver (YouTube | Podcast) drop by to talk about their new film Mid-Engines and Mountains. The new film highlights the fun and differences found in driving an Alfa 4C, Porsche Cayman and Lotus Elise through... well mountains. In addition the guys rolled in with a brand new Charger Hellcat and the new holy grail of track-rats the Camaro Z28. This week Matt has the new Jaguar F-Type R (coupe) we discuss the Ferrari option debacle and we talk about the merits of gold in a carbon weave.

    I wonder how much better tires would improve the Hellcat (Challenger and Charger)? I mean standard PZero's are not a good high performance tire by today's standards. In the OE size you could go for a Sport Comp-2s but those aren't that amazing. However if you could theoretically fit a 315/35/20 all around (which in the back I'm sure is fine, front clearance would be the issue, but perhaps with custom offsets) then it would maintain the stock sidewall height and you could get huge Michelin PSS rubber (in K1 or K2 Ferrari compounds) or even g-Froce Rivals. That would certainly transform the grip of the car.

    Also as an amendment, Liberty Walk's wide body kit for all Challenger models is $4800, and I would be shocked if that didn't provide sufficient room for 315s all around. (If you're into that kind of style)

    Finally! I figured out who did the 911 movie i've been searching for. I thought it was the guys from regular car reviews not everyday driver. Now I must purchase and enjoy. Great podcast guys as usual.
