The fact that they designed for 235 width tires/wheels bodes well for putting RS levels of power to the ground. Plus they got the Revknuckle proven in the RS, no reason not to bring that over as well.
I disagree, you can never have too much tire but maybe that's the autox'r in me

I loved running 225/15/50's on my car. I haven't seen any info on suspension changes, revo knuckle, etc

Next week, someone in Detroit needs to sneak on to the display and find out what's behind those wheels!!!!
