Re: Can your WK2 SRT8 Do this?

No it can't. I DON'T WANT IT TO! I don't want the best of both worlds.

First let me preface this with I can afford any Range Rover currently offered. Let's get that out of the way. With that said, I hate Range Rovers, and I don't give a shit what they do or don't do. That falls into the same category as the GTR. It's a boring fan boy car that I wouldn't piss on if it were on fire.

Please stop trolling.

Re: Can your WK2 SRT8 Do this?

I don't know much about thr RR, but do know they don't look near as slick as the GK2. Especially the one in that Scotty's sig.

Re: Can your WK2 SRT8 Do this?

I think a lot of people, myself included, have not given the JGC SRT enough credit for its off-road ability, because it looks like it is pretty darn great. I saw a video on instagram (posted by Abuimad, he is a member here but I think his username is different) of a JGC SRT with 22 inch wheels, street tires, and the RM mid-level lowering kit off-roading on some dunes. That is pretty good if you ask me. Even if the JGC SRT isn't as good as the RRS off-road (and I'm not saying it isn't), it comes REALLY close. The only advantages the RRS has are a low-range transfer case and some more ground clearance. Hopefully someone gets them together and does a comparison.

Scott, I apologize for doubting some of what you have said. Sure, the RRS MIGHT be SLIGHTLY better off-road, but it isn't $15k better (more like $20k-25k with the awesome discounts on JGC SRTs at the moment).

Trust me in sand dunes, the SRT with out any real 4WD is way better than the RR sport except for the clearance ... We've tried them both at the same time in the same place with 2 different drivers ... We switched cars more than once .... If I had the tools I would've taken the front bumper off.

Re: Can your WK2 SRT8 Do this?

On these kind of sands like the one on your pic is ok but taking it to the real desert sand like the safari adventures is impossible.

Re: Can your WK2 SRT8 Do this?

well i have to say, if thats the factory exhaust sound its way better than my srt was from factory.
Its defiantly a RR advertisement for sure, you have to be blind Freddy to miss that.

they guy that posted this is sitting laughing at alot of the comments some of you have made, some times saying nothing is louder than 5 pages of defending your self.

after saying that my srt is 0-60 4.4sec and the RRS is 510hp 5-liter V8 supercharged engine offers a 0-60 mph time of 5.0 seconds2 (0.9 seconds faster than the previous model). GAME OVER!!

WTF are you talking about?!?

The WK2 SRT isn't even close to having similar Off Road ability to the 2014 Range Rover Sport. If you think it does, then you must believe the SRT is also pretty darn close in ability to the regular WK2 (Laredo/Overland/Summit). Darn near ANY powerful vehicle can handle a little SAND. That doesn't mean it can actually perform OFF ROAD (rock, gravel, etc).

Here's a real world example of what I consider Off Road ability:

a few years ago, I was driving North on a freeway here in SoCal one night. Suddenly traffic came to a complete stop. There was a major accident up ahead that caused the freeway to be totally closed. We were less than a 1/4 mile from the accident & could see the fire & emergency vehicles. A passing CHP motorcycle officer told us we'd be tied up there for at least 2 hours or more (the nearest exit ramp was almost a mile behind us).

Well a full sized pickup truck decided to improvise an exit. He went up & over the curb & down thru the brush on our right side. This area was a fairly deep bowl that rose up to another curb adjacent to a side street.

Well I decided to follow him (after raising up to Off Road 1 to clear the curb). I was able to make it over all of the obstacles and followed his lead. 2 cars and 1 small crossover SUV (don't remember which brand) tried to follow me. They managed to get over the first curb but could not exit the bowl & curb at the far end and got stuck.

And I'm pretty damn sure a WK2 SRT wouldn't have made it either!

The SRT (Street & Racing Tech) lacks little off road specific things like:
- Good Approach & Departure angles
- Good Clearance & Breakover Angles
- Good Wheel Articulation

Having a powerful engine & a good transmission isn't enough. If that was the case, darn near any powerful CAR would be considered Off Road capable.

Why SRT fans feel the need to exaggerate the off road prowess of a vehicle that was specifically not designed for that role is pathetic. Next, you'll suggest the SRT should receive the Trail Rated badge.
