I feel you and everyone elses opinions in that this is irresponsible and to an extent it is, but not an extent that is significant enough for people to be reacting the way they are

I mean, why is he in any more danger in the vid than any other situation he may encounter daily? People automatically equate high speeds to imminent danger but if you weight out all variables in play here, this is probably a good deal safer than driving normally on any major highway or other crowded road, just my .02 - Doesn't make it right, but doesn't make it very dangerous and for people to be reacting like their oh soo righteous.

And Im sure the people getting in knew what was going on, so it was their choice. Doubt he said they were going to cruise the speed limit next to the GTR

600 Horsepower at the treads GTR? Really? I reckon it's tuned on a "Happy" (high reading) dyno if at all! Because seriously, it sounds stock.

Regardless, your SRT sounds awesome.

Re: 800hp Jeep SRT8 vs 700hp GTR...oh yea....it's my Jeep

Here is an interesting graph for everyone out there. This is still used by the State Police in Michigan and Texas.

It is actually safer to travel 15mph above the speed limit vs traveling 10mph under!

So why are there speeding tickets but no tickets for the 92yr old who can't see over the steering wheel driving 10-15mph under as they are the greater hazard?



Texting and driving is actually more dangerous than drinking and driving/sleepy driving and that as well all agree is very bad!

So to all be safe and drive well, whatever your speed may be!
