Marco,

Congrats on the One Lap class win! How ticked off would you have been had the Honda won?

Re: May 16, 2012 SRT Engineers chat session

Like Yaccster, great job on the 1 lap of America Win. Very impressive! Was there anything else done to the jeep other than the weight removal and Corsa exhaust?

You don't have bad mufflers. We've noticed the temp deltas between both banks during our thermal testing as well. It's the same on the LX's as well.

Speaking of MDS noise is there any work being done to mitigate or eliminate the Eco drone?

The electrical system of the Jeep was established well before the charger/300. Unfortunately at that time, the 8.4 radio was not in the product plan or electrical architecture.

Re: May 16, 2012 SRT Engineers chat session

what about the 2012 Jeep SRt8 front brembos on a 2006-10 jeep SRT8. Is the bolt spacing for the calipers the same?

Before getting to the answers, we need to clarify two things:
1 - The One Lap car is NOT an ACR, regardless of the badge
2 - The wheels are NOT from the Viper

Ok, now to the vehicle specs:
Wheels - one-off custom made 20x11 light weight wheels
Tires - Pirelli PZERO 305/35R20
Exhaust - cat-back system supplied by Corsa Performance

The entire powertrain and driveline was stock.

We reduced the weight by removing interior components (rear seats, carpet, insulations, trim panels). We also installed a roll bar and a 6-point race harness.

Before I jump in my SRT Jeep and drive 4 hrs back to DC. I wanted to thank you all for doing such a fantastic job and doing things like this chat.

One more ? Though. After some comments from folks taking it to the track and just getting back from the SRT experience at VIR myself. Why no slotted/drilled rotors for the Jeep. It seems like it would benefit a bit.

Re: May 16, 2012 SRT Engineers chat session

I have an issue with the black finish coming off the muffler/resonators as well as off the radiator. Is this supposed to be happening? 2012 Jeep SRT8
