Taken from the TBSS site.

In 80 degree weather, a stock WK1 SRT is around 13.5. So its really not that much different.


And who knows if this guy put it in autostick and or track mode.

Re: Interesting

I'm guessing the person driving was using their hand to steer and push the gas pedal at the same time. Possibly even shaving their beard while it was all going on.

Re: Interesting

also, doesn't track mode push more power to the rear wheels in addition to stiffening the suspension? If so, that would explain a slower 60' out of the box time compared to AWD launch.

True.


I was saying that I dont know why peeps on the red site are shitting on it. Its not that much different.


There are haters on both sides. I just think the WK1 guys are not willing to accept new technology.


Stupid IMO.

Re: Interesting

I hope that their anger at everything WK2 SRT8 doesn't show up in the chat session hopefully they just keep that hostility at the red site. It would be embarrassing if Gilles agree's to do this chat and then it's nothing but negativity. If that happens we would be hard pressed to ever get him to do another Q&A session. These chats don't happen that often for a reason!

I don't think it has to do with only the technology, I think the main point of contention is the psychological factor: it is only a matter of time before they get phased out of relevance and no one finds their model that special anymore. With the introduction of modifications for the WK2, tuning (it will eventually come, name a car it eventually didn't, don't be suckered by the fear mongers), more "high-end" buyers, and the basic principle of ........time, everyone will be focused on the WK2 and will no longer care about the WK1 outside of its loyal followers. Even owning one, I can admit the WK1's looks are beginning to age at an alarming rate.

Scott, please stay the course here as you have and protect it with swift actions. Please do not let any of this nonsense blossom here. It's fine to have opinions, but the other site has turned into a pure bash fest toward the WK2. It's particularly annoying when someone who thinks they are special because they have a lot of posts and mods to their WK1 SRT8 starts throwing that around as weight to justify criticizing people.

For many of us, this isn't our first rodeo in performance cars. I'd be more than happy to help keep order in the court here if anything was needed.

that is my biggest fear and ChryCo has seen the "hate" there and acknowledged it. I just hope they aren't seen as JG members!

I agree completely! JeepGarage is different than the red site...so hopefully that doesnt happen here!
Thank you for the offer...I will keep that in mind!
