Re: First video of WK vs WK2 coming. Filming at 4:30

Hey everyone, I had a great time doing this video, whether I won or lost didn't matter to me. It's all good. Just providing some entertainment for those interested!

I really appreciate QuickOne for leading me to a great Jeep dealership to make this purchase a reality.

FYI:
My truck had about 975 miles on it with about a 1/4 tank of gas.

Doing this testing showed me that the WK1 consistently beat me off the line and had the lead within the first 100 feet. My WK2 felt very heavy up until about 3000-3500rpm when the power seemed to finally turn on. I tried runs with Track mode DSC full off, Sport Mode DSC on, and 2 runs at full auto shifting and 2 paddle shifting between 5000-6000rpm. Each time QuickOne took the lead within the first 100 ft and I ended up riding equally within a length or two until the end.
This was my first tries at even launching the thing from a dead start and going through the gears. I hope you other WK2s will get better times!

PEACE!

Maybe I missed it but did the WK1 have a tune and CAI on?

Well that explains it.... The WK2 would have been 2 car lengths ahead if it weren't for the CAI on the wK1! just kidding, good race guys. Doesn't sound like either vehicle is a bad deal, to me the WK2 is a nice upgrade with some great luxury features and an updated look for pretty much the same performance. Throw a tune and CAI on it and it should be just as quick as the WK1's were.

2 others were just like that one and 2 others were closer than that one. I however only saw clear runway, so maybe Transam could elaborate more from the rear. LOL...J/K T/A!

Thanks for video! Awesome stuff guys, stuff like this keeps the garage on top haha + rep for you two!

FTR- this was what we all expected isn't it? I mean the wk2 as we know got heavier and sits bit higher but did gain some power. Id bet stock vs stock on prepped track we'd have close race. Gained some lbs but added power should cancel it out hopefully!

Either way props to you both, both look sharp and no matters whose faster their both BA Jeeps!

I now know what they meant by "Eat my dust" in losing a drag race! My Jeep was nice and clean when I showed up. When I left it was covered in dust from your trail, and my wheels got covered in brake dust too.
