Re: JeepGarage.Org exclusive!!!!!!!!!!!!! Special Edition Grand Cherokee SRT8 Track?

What I want to know is why make a WK8 track version when they don't even have a Charger track version?? Do they have a Viper track version anymore even? I know Baxter BPG has a SHLOAD of Vipers, mostly tuned to the maxxx, but is there an official track version for anything else, let alone an SRT, let alone an SUV which isn't really all that great for track?? Or do they mean 1/4 mile only edition??

Re: JeepGarage.Org exclusive!!!!!!!!!!!!! Special Edition Grand Cherokee SRT8 Track?

there will also be a challenger and charger version with some of the same componets. This is more of a special edition geared towards more performance. i dont see it hurting the resale of the 2012's at all.

it will be a very limited edition and may not even be track prepped...just a step up in performance. I dont see it hurting resale of any other SRT8 Jeep AT ALL!

Hopefully it will be like some of those obscure Viper editions which nobody even really knows about...

Re: JeepGarage.Org exclusive!!!!!!!!!!!!! Special Edition Grand Cherokee SRT8 Track?

Milous or Scott, can you give us one bit of info on the go fast goodies?
Are we talking F/I?
It's got to be substantial if it hits the 550HP mark from the 465 now.
That with some weight savings has me very intriqued.
Thank you RALPH GILLES!!!!!
I knew the move to make SRT a seperate brand would bring ripe fruits for the picking!

Re: JeepGarage.Org exclusive!!!!!!!!!!!!! Special Edition Grand Cherokee SRT8 Track?

I can get a lighter Jeep by going to the Gym and leaving the car seats and stroller at home.

How is the extra power obtained. Tune? Supercharger? Turbo?

Sounds to me they are making one of those scuderia/superleggera version of the srt8. Pay much more for less equippment. Carbon fiber hard uncomfy recaro seats, no ac, no stereo, no back seat!! Smaller gas tank, plastic windows and nothing electric. This is how it will be......... Unless they got a new monster engine in that heavy beast.
