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

I almost think a 21" wheel would be the tits for this thing! The 20s were perfect on the WK SRT but this thing seems to have more gap under the fender maybe its just the fat Pirellis. I think a custom set of 21's with a 35/40 x 21 tire would be nicer, little less sidewall but still stiff!

Well it may have to be something like Factory Replica 21s in order to get 21s... Who else makes them?

LOL @ SRT WK2 no drift. The best 6.4 in the video though. It's grown on me a lot.

I'll take one in silver. That color 'widens' the look of the front end of this thing.

That and also get me the software so I can disable power to my front wheels (ad hoc temporarily of course).

Didn't one of the reviews say up to 100% of power in track mode could go to back wheels? So there is your disable, and your ten mile wide smile not to mention the price hike. Im thinking how my face would hurt if my current beast could do that!

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

In the article about the burnout, they say in track mode, 100% of the power can go to one wheel...But they said, therefore, using the same software power can be transferred to both rear wheels.
I'm pretty sure they have a starscan that can just program stuff that we never will be able to.
But for $61K, that starscan should be in the glove box and a new set of tires in the rear just for fun!

Fresh back from the SRT launch at Willow Springs Raceway there are several on track videos with both driver and car perspectives to cut and share with enthusiasts and Mopar fans alike. But for now I wanted to share this video of a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 with some very special software loaded into the ECU...notice the lack of power being channeled to the front wheels

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

I'm thinking about like a 1/4 mile launch... It probably delivers near (if not) 100% power to the wheels on a launch. Like when the vehicle is going 0mph and throttle is immediately pushed to 100%. It would want of course to switch back to 80/20 and eventually 50/50 as the vehicle gets traction and the dynamics of the body on top of the chassis begin to re-adjust.

Anyways, we always think about the last part but not enough about that first part. Do you think it actually puts 100% to the rear wheels then in that scenario (launch)?

If so, it might be possible to tap the brakes at the same time and get it to break the traction. You'd have to put it on Track mode to turn off ESP but that is no problem.

I just wonder, that would be sweet if we could do burnouts with the stock ECM programming. If so, it's like a Track mode feature secretly MADE for the drag strips - and for showing off of course..
