    Yes.....for those who are there can you confirm if that is the 2019 Ruby Red Color or the upcoming replacement Red Hot Metallic? I know its a 2020 model but I would love to know what color they are using to showcase the car.

    Thanks!!

    This is me spit balling, but with the 20” wheel, the width of the wheel, and the extra weight (quite a bit) over the front, I’m feeling they needed the wheel recessed to accommodate the squat in cornering. The mag ride is good, but I also feel a DSSV would solve that issue too. They could have a more aggressive offset and “fill” the gap better.

    As of now, I think that’s what we get.

    If they hit a dip mid corner when fully loaded on the suspension (remember highest Gs from a mustang ever) it’ll likely rebound into the fender lip.

    I'm thinking for street operation, a ~5-7mm slip on spacer would tweak the look just about right.

    I thinks its just because its a factory wheel still and lowered with addition of a little natural camber it makes it sink in more. Front spacer will be one of the first mods haha.

    Definitely the front wheel location WRT the fender opening is for performance, not for what the car will look like sitting still at Cars and Coffee. Hopefully many owners will make use of the performance of these cars.

    Im going with the front tire is tucked for aerodynamic reasons. I talked to some pretty serious drag race car builders. While I was building my 95. And they all recomended having the front tires tucked vs sitting flush.

    As to the spacer's, I did 8mm or 5/16" on all four corners to help the looks + handling. Coyote Red is getting an aluminum driveshaft soon. I can't find a suitable photo to give the after effect of the spacer install. tn_IMG_20180513_073149_704.jpg
