Omni basecoat

What are some negatives about Omni basecoat?
I will be painting whole car and I'm not concerned about it not matching since it will all be one batch. Same amount mixed in DBC 2000 is triple the cost.
I want Tor Red which is on new Challengers/Chargers and it's solid color.
I would probably buy SPI universal clear even though I have been having good results with Omni clear coat.

I just painted a 67 chevelle with omni base and spi clear looks great. I shot it with deltron base and a different clear and had to re-shoot it because it had molting everywhere. omni base layed down nice and clean and spi clear buffed up great.
