    He talks about a steering wheel and aressive tires ? And that it's all coming together. What a sad spokesman Mr. head in charge of SRT programs. And driving it a 9 /10th yet his speed is well under 100 mph

      Perhaps the video doesn't show it, but Ralph Gilles certainly knows how to turn a wheel.
