Re: Can your WK2 SRT8 Do this?

When I was stationed in Iceland, I had a 3 cylinder Daihatsu Charade. During winter we used to go out and see guys in Ford Broncos and Toyota HiLux's with massive winter tyres slipping and sliding all over the place on the black ice and my Charade would stick to the road like glue. My secret, studs in the tyres.

Usually it comes down to the tyres and the driver. If you search hard enough, you find what you are looking for.

How about stop using "rape" as a verb for your Jeeps, or in any other situation to describe something as being better.

It's embarrassing.

Well said! It's stupid and objectionable.

All bad info... Narrow tires are better in snow, unless you meant sand of the earlier vid... 4lo will not get you out of that situation or even avoid it, he is high sided on wet slushy snow, all four wheels are spinning. No tires will work then. .. He needs a shovel but those city boys know about as much as some folks here...

Oh, and if you want to ban the word rape, how about stupid, and range rover sport for that matter. Word murderers...

they took it out of contex. I didnt mean it in the literal sense but that it would own, pwn, destroy, whatever you want to use. It was used in the most extreme in the sense of owning. Then again context it hard to read on the internet.

There's no justifying in whatever way you used it. So stop trying.

It's tasteless and makes you sound like a moron.

If anybody does not know anything about wk2 SRT, better to keep himself silent..

THIS IS AN SUV CAR [sport utility vehicle ] and

JEEP HAS ALREADY CONSIDERED IT ..

They have put the 5.7 hemi for whoever wants an off-road vehicle ..

Who cares about Rally Dakar..

& who cares about RR (TATA) cars..

This is a wk2 forum not an RR forum.

Op,

You posted this in the wrong sub-forum!

There is a sub-forum dedicated to "Other" vehicles on this site: Other Rides - Jeep Garage - Jeep Forum

You should have posted this topic there. Oh... and you should check out this thread about Ultimate SUVs in that sub-forum:

Ultimate SUV: Range Rover Sport or Porsche Cayenne?

Re: Can your WK2 SRT8 Do this?

Once I saw the RR and GC SRT headline I had to read it. It reminded me I have the ignore feature. Does this guy even have a WK2? Doesn't matter. Ignore is my friend for ignorance.
