Re: 2013 SRT Jeep in action on Top Gear right now

So either way, the SRT or Overland Summit would of still lost the drag race to the RR when it has about 500hp and supercharged. I think the sand it would of still won and had a better chance at the snow competition. Just kind of think poorly done.

Of course Tanner won the race he had 40hp and -500lbs advantage. That air suspension and leaking sunroof really didn't surprise me

Re: 2013 SRT Jeep in action on Top Gear right now

I got to watch this last night and it seemed like the SRT did pretty well. I can attest that Snow mode going up snowy hills is a waste. Especially starting on a snowy hill. I've found Sand/Mud mode to be the most affective, but I don't believe the SRT has that. Snow mode will just cause you to dig a giant hole.

Re: 2013 SRT Jeep in action on Top Gear right now

snow mode in the SRT switches the split to 50/50 front to rear and changes some of the vehicle dynamics to handle snow. That being said....the 2ft of soft powder in the show...and the lack of driver...(rutledge sucks) Of course the RR is gonna beat the SRT in a 1/4 mile race...especially with tanner in the RR and Rutledge in the SRT.
