Here is the Kid’s Course, though I don’t think it was fully set up. The Jeep tire stack was pretty cool.

Banner of the Mopar family of brands; I spent hours taking pics here. It was a great show!

Re: Chicago Auto Show 2012 preview with SRT!

I was fortunate today to go to the Chicago Auto show courtesy of scottina06 and Adam Barrera from SRT. I met Dave, the engineer from SRT and he’s a real Jeep fan. His current ride is a new GC SRT and he’s got about 15k on the odometer. He also said the GC SRT that Speed Channel tested at Nürburgring was bone stock and he thought that if they had more practice time they could have dropped the lap times a little more. He also said they tested in China on their road track and set a record time for an SUV there. They do read the forums and try to get a feel for what SRT drivers want, so keep posting your ideas.
BIG thanks to scottina06 for making this possible!

Here’s a link to my photos from today

Re: Chicago Auto Show 2012 preview with SRT!

Today was definitely a great experience. My camera stopped working on me so I didn't get any pictures with it. The access to the SRT Group plus being able to see the auto show without having to wait in lines made for an amazing time. If this is offered again to others in other cities, jump at the chance to go.

The Q&A with Ralph Gilles, Beth and Dave was very interesting. The thing that the 2012 SRT owners will like to hear is Ralph said they are close to releasing the tuning and only have a few more obstacles to overcome. He admitted he feels they may be losing business to competitors due to the fact that the vehicles can't be modified the way people want. He also asked the crowd what vehicle people would like to see become the newest SRT. An AWD Dart seemed to be the most popular choice. Another popular request was bringing back something along the lines of the Magnum. Overall, they definitely seemed to be on top of what has been discussed on many different forums about what people are looking for out of future models. The answer to alot of questions was that has been discussed but we can't answer if it will happen or not(usually said with a telling smirk).

The one photo I got with my cell phone during the Q&A...

Re: Chicago Auto Show 2012 preview with SRT!

Don't know how those pics disappeared; fixing now. Also, this post seemed to be missed. Yeti footprints on hood of Arctic Wrangler. It's one of my favorite pics!

The Dodge / Chrysler / Fiat test track was also very cool... Took lots of pics of this Challenger. Want to get those cones for my driveway.
