Re: Escape's Hemi Punisher is running, new pics!

These things happen and besides this just gives me a bit more time to get more parts in/made for the Punisher! Like some rims and tires!

As am I, I just hope the weight is comparable to the 36 lbs. 20"x9" front SRT8 stockers. i heard as a rule adding 1 lb to the weight of your rims/tires combo equals adding 2 lbs. anywhere else in/on the vehicle...or basically a loss of 20hp every +1 rim/tire combo you do!

Lighter is better.

I found a good source for info here:
http://www.wheelweights.net/
and here:
http://www.mechdb.com/index.php/Wheel_weights

I started a thread here about wheel weight, Please contribute data if you have some!
Insearch of lightweight Rims and tires

Speaking of those rims there is a chrome set for sale here:
http://www.cherokeesrt8.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=29851

I'm not sure if their camera has the correct date on it, but if it does these are a custom drilled set as they just started making them for the WK.

Thanks,
Escape

Re: Escape's Hemi Punisher is running, new pics!

Yeah I started a thread ages ago detailing mine and requesting wheel weights from members, don't hold your breath for info mate lol
We did however manage to get the basics, take a look;

http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php...t=wheel+weight

If the wheels are anything like mine, they are made a a blank, and then the importer/manufacturer drills them and machines the offset to suit the vehicle they're ordered for.

Totally agree on your wheel weight calculations, we're always at pains to find the lightest wheels possible for the race cars. The flow on effects are acceleration, braking, and easier shock absorber control. It's a much overlooked factor of increasing performance.
It's worth noting that different tire specs and brands can weigh substantially different, though getting the weight info prior to purchase in near on impossible!

Thanks for the info Marlin and yeah it is a very important item people overlook!

Here is a pic with the progress so far, next week RamMedic hood and soon after some OEM SRT8 non-durabrite rims. Then I'm sending her to weigh****chers to loose some weight...

Re: Escape's Hemi Punisher is running, new pics!

Here is a few pic's with the Halo's on.





More to come in a bit...still waiting on some more parts to come in!

Oh yeah and changing the pre-cat O2's sucks (bank 2, left side)...some engineer from Jeep needs to go back to school for putting the connector where it is!

The best part of the whole changing the O2's is... once I put the new one in (bank 2, left side) it was broken right out of the package. Fired it up and CEL's all over the place and it started dumping gas like mad into bank 2. DashHawk said Bank 2 to lean because the O2 wasn't reading and the Jeep was trying to push 33% more fuel to it on Bank 2 long and short term fuel trims...turned it off immediately.

So not only is it a pain to get to but I had to do it 4 times tonight...It has since been modified and is now easier to get to and has the old O2 on that side till Monday when I can return it for one that isn't broken.

I believe those that design it should have to take it apart also...just because it fits in the computer does mean you can fit your hand in there and get to it.
