Re: Yea itís a Hemi, Wanna Race?

LOL Moose! You really should be a writer if you're not one already. You had me hanging on every word and then it was just like daydreaming in school when the bell rings, interrupting a wonderful synaptic escape.
To answer why Moose or others woul use the Tow/Haul mode? Well, if one wants to haul ass I expect that counts!

Wow it's only when I read lyrics to rap songs that make me hold my head down in shame that I ever listened to that crap. However that contest does sound intriguing.

You're not as fast as a Hemi

It took you 2 1/2 years to respond to Moosehead's post.

Sometimes I wonder what these idiots are thinking. A ferrari? Seriously?
Kinda like the VW Golf with the 2.5L (turd) engine that tried to take us on yesterday getting onto the freeway?

I know the V6 GC isn't 'fast' by any means, but seriously. I've driven a Golf with the 2.5L. I swear I could have gotten out and run along side and still beat it.

And to top it off, the idiot was in the outside lane of two lanes turning left onto the freeway ramp, which means she had to drive/accelerate even farther than we did (the wife was driving).

Wait till I try to convince her a 6 month old WK2 needs to be replaced with the 2012 SRT8.

Good thing she doesn’t know that I secretly like to drag race every blue-hair, rice-burner, and Camaro/Mustang/Porsche that happens to toe the line alongside the Beast at a stoplight. Years ago I got pulled over for speeding with my kids in the car, she nearly left me then. Prolly shouda.

I’ve pretty much mastered thumping the old ladies in Coupe ‘de Villes, Crown Vics, and other 508 cubic inch boats. Same for any V6 SUV, or oversized buildings on wheels such as Tahoes, Excursions, and stretch Escalades. Child’s play. (Sorry Techno, but you’ll be happy to know that I do have to pull into two gas stations before the finish line when drag racing against a Pentastar).

It gets a bit tougher when you’re up against a Cayenne Turbo, new skool Mustang, or other fairly fast, light vehicle. Sometimes, you gotta use stealth and literally catch folks off guard, most of whom scoff at the notion of a 5k lb SUV trying to give ‘er a go. Having the kids seats in the back can help disguise the Hemi, so long as they don’t see the Recaro badge. Many aren’t yet familiar with the new WK2 and just think it’s an X5 on steroids. Other times, it helps to use both overall hulking size and rumbling exhaust to intimidate your competition. Just depends on which battle you may be facing on any given day.

Just yesterday, though, things got dicey. Unbeknown to yours truly, a purple Hyundai Sonata slid up alongside the Beast. It was as quiet as a hybrid, and as unremarkable as a wall flower. I probably wouldn’t have noticed it whatsoever, but recalled a recent JG thread where someone warned about the blazingly fast Sonata ľ mile times in one of the ubiquitous Hemi vs. the world threads. Crap. Imma gonna get smoked by a Hyundai. Especially with this Costco load in the back and the skiis stuffed into the roof rack.

This could be really bad. Quick look around to see if anyone is watching, don’t want too many witnesses to watch the can of whup ass this thing is gonna put on the Jeep. Frantic pilot checklist pre-launch: Sport Mode? Check. Tow Button? Check. Manual 1st Gear? Check. Nitrous? Oops, didn’t get that mod done yet! Palms sweating. Trying to desperately to anticipate the light. Here we go, it’s on!


So Who Wins?







































































Whaaa? Oh, nothing honey. (Forgot that my bride was in the passenger seat). Lucky day for Sonata boy. We’ll get him next time.

Sounds like your a real menace out there.
