Cherokee Trailhawk 3.2 1/8 mile Test Results.

We had only 4 of 8 jeeps to show up.Well tonight really sucked as the weather was hot. The little 3.2 cherokee trailhawk didnt take to my vp109 gas mix like i think it should as the mix was off as i miss figured the gas i would have by the time i got to the track and it was way off in octane and oxygen and i ended up with 8.5 gal of gas to race with. The temps went from 91 to 70 and the DA went from 2552 ft to 1202 ft and heres my 3 runs. All runs were in track mode and crossed the finish line at 5500 in 3rd gear and all runs had iced intake manifolds for a min of 1 hr. The cherokee trailhawk is 479 lbs heavier than the 2 wh drive modles with the same 3.2 v6.

Run 1 Air filter out,engine cover off,t/control was off all the way and spin all 4 tires thru 1 gear.
Race wt 4405 lbs with driver
Gas 93 w/3.12% Oxygen
DA.........2552 FT
60'.........2.365
330'.......6.665
1/8.......10.219
mph......68.67

Run 2 Air filter in,engine cover off,t/control off 1/2 way and spun tires again but not as bad.
DA.........2099 FT
60'........2.382
330'......6.638
1/8.......10.156
MPH......69.82

Run 3 Same as #2 except engine cover on.
DA........1202FT

@jim383 - Wondering if 383 in your user name has anything to do with cubic inches?

I told him i had a bone stock v6 and the diff in our race wt i wouldnt stand a chance but i said ok. We lined up and the strip announcer said heres a dual overhead cam 4 banger against the new jeep v6 cherokee. He does his burn out in the water box and i did mine and heres the times below.

Re: Cherokee Trailhawk 3.2 1/8 mile Test Results.

@jim383 - You are a hoot! Had to look up ricer car

A person who makes unecessary modifications to their most often import car (hence the term "rice") to make it (mostly make it look) faster.

Couple of years ago someone made reference to a hooptie. Had to look that one up too.

With his RT I guess he was asleep at the wheel

If I understand your numbers correctly, he broke the light a quarter second after you. But you would have beat him at the end anyway since your final time was almost a half second better than his.

How come only 1/8 mile? Short track?

Our 1/4 mile track is 13 ft up hill and they run .25 slower in the 1/8 mile there than our track does so we never go there to run the 1/4 mile. Our flat 1/4 mile track is 200 miles away.
