Ironically, at speed, there is definitely some decent downforce happening as it seems to get more stable as you move faster. Almost feels like driving a previous generation American muscle car. I would have never imagined since I've really been more or less using the Jeep for either commuting or hitting the trails.
Has anyone done a road course in their Overland? She'll never be as fast as my GT, but definitely more comfortable.
Unless you restrict your road course contests to 1960's buicks, you'd get your clock cleaned. In sport mode with better tires, the thing feels a lot like a classic Jag sedan, with notable body roll, but very well controlled body roll and quite comfortable at higher speed canyon carving. Plus the Hemi performs about like the lower end of middling 80's muscle cars, only it is far more comfortable than any I ever drove.
Head east out into the boondocks and open it up... or better yet take Hwy 318 just below Ely Nev.
