In fact, the 3.6 is fine for the majority of buyers. Not everyone is an enthusiast. Some like to get from point A to B in a leisurely manner.

This will be the last time I respond to your insecurity.
Yeah, after you edit everything to a fare-thee-well. You yourself were pointing out the 1/4 mile trap speed of the Hemi as being less than safe as compared to other faster vehicles, which is nonsense.

Even enthusiasts grow up. You might try it.

Well, uh, er, um, I am a better driver than those who are parking their lard arses in the fast lane thereby forcing us faster, safer, better drivers to weave around them.

Like I said, the track or dragstrip is the proper place for "spirited" driving. Driving recklessly on the street doesn't make you an "enthusiast".

If your a** is puckering merging into traffic, maybe you should wait for a larger gap.

An enthusiast is responsible with how and where they use their vehicle. We understand how the public impression can harm our rights to modify and enjoy our vehicles. Tracks are a "safe" environment, no pedestrians, animals, or unsuspecting and untrained motorists. After all the public highways are not a track or personal high speed playground. Some people are out for a leisurely drive or vacation or sightseeing trip.

If you find yourself forced to drive aggressively on a regular basis, maybe you should rethink your schedule and leave a little earlier. Like I mentioned, I do track days and auto cross events regularly. There's no excuse for this kind of driving on the street. Too many legal venues are available if you just search for them.

I have to say that I made no such comments. I don't even know what the trap speed of the Hemi is and don't care to look it up. All my edits were completed prior to your response(s) so you really need to learn how to at least quote what you are responding to.

Re: Looking to Buy - few questions.

Clearly, I got on the short bus by jumping in this thread. It was an accident, I am getting off now.



P.S. Best of luck to the OP. I don't think you can go wrong with the WK2.
