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

Thanks BostonDMD.

Good question! Feel free to take the challenge when it comes up.

I hope you will still take delivery of yours whenever that may be. We can all try and get together eventually, hang in there!

The WK2 is a different animal, but great in it's own sense.

It's sort of cool watching the video and seeing the dust behind both Jeeps.

I noticed your wheels at the end were pretty dark up front.

Boston DMD...We'll work on getting us all to a track come spring time.

I'll have to dig up my archives of when I tried doing it before, but no one was interested.

It's a horrible video and I apologize. I have 4 videos of us lining up and the video guy thought Green meant record and red meant stop.
He doesn't own a camcorder or anything. So spare the guy the insults.

We did 5 runs.

We both measured on EVIC and were consistant in speed and times for 1/8 mile.
The WK1 was consistant at 8.6 @ 82.x One time I did get 8.5
The WK2 was constistant at 8.7 @ 81.x

The video that we did get, shows a pretty good lead, but WK2 had T/C on to see if it improved his times. It didn't. LOL..
Nice video. looks like the 22 cid don't quite make up for the 300 lbs it put on. Separately, the WK2 looks great.

Funny stuff. At least over here its not so vendor driven by the cannuck****s that you can actually talk about products over here. They won't even let me talk about the fact that I have a wavetrac on my jeep or that SHR does my mods and since one of their main vendor guys sells his own crappy 8.8 rear end, they don't want the word out on Moser's built axels and the wavetrac rears.

That and its a damn circlejerk mutual admiration society, cliqueville/shillville echochamber.

If your posts about your customers don't get the resonance and response that you want, you don't need to kick the place for not being interested. Just don't post over there.

Harry's a good guy and is exicited and passionate about selling his snails, so cut him some slack, but yeah, the place can be a bit of a circlejerk.

Thank for summing that up very well. It's people like you that need to post on here more about the trials and tribulations of the mods you have done.
A forum is supposed to help members. If it wasn't for the members there wouldn't be a forum.
I wanted to get 5" tips for everyone to make. I couldn't even put up a poll to see if there was any interest for me to look at getting them made.
I'm no vendor and don't want to be. I just want to help fellow Jeep members. I've been warned multiple times, by just responding to someone asking about 5" tips that I can help.
End rant.
Return to topic. LOL..

Thank you Brian for the video! Transam thank you also! Every once in a while I look at the SRT8 WK2 section and wonder if I should have stuck with my order...then I am reminded of how bad business has been the last few months and reality sets in. Nice work guys!

Great vid and write up, looks like we'll need a few more matchups. Anyone have a stock 2010 with about 1000 miles on it?
