On snow, if you want to let 'er drift and go then Sport mode is a must, otherwise the ESP does kick in along with slower throttle and braking per SRTDogg's comment above.

The WK2 Hemi feels like it would roll instead of drift on dry pavement, but haven't necessarily pushed it hard enough to get up on two wheels, yet. Heh.

Re: AWESOME new Videos of the NEW SRT8's 2012 Jeep SRT8

I thought the SRT experience was supposed to teach owners how to stay out of the ditches while drifting to impress the ladies....LOL
When I go do myon track experience they will either ban me or.....hire me....

Re: AWESOME new Videos of the NEW SRT8's 2012 Jeep SRT8

Dang if this beast doesn't drift or slide in a corner, how do you know when you're at the limit? At least with a regular RWD car I can feel how drifted and how much traction I have at a moment's notice... If the Jeep just flips that is not cool..

Never driven one, but I can guarantee you it wont flip if driven hard in a corner. Unless you do hit a ditch....
Tire grip will be lost hence the cool drifting....

How about a big smokey burnout.......

Didn't someone say when they debuted it back in the spring about "knowing a guy"...

Looks so much better in action then in still shots of it. Some of the videos make the tires look like they have tall side walls. Love the silver!!!

Bad is right and at that MSRP price I am in REAL trouble. Wifey saw a pic of the Mineral Grey in the other thread and said "wow, that is a good looking jeep". Once she sees one in person she will probably be begging to trade her Overland in.
