I'm going with confused.
Let me refer you to Jeep Garage.org for information on the WK2 SRT8.
If you read any information about the 2006 SRT8, you would see, it is testing quicker than the 2006.
Sooo....Given the two options above, Confused or Seriously slower, looks to me, you're confused.

BostonDMD....I'm totally in on the track. However, I am new to Limerock, so I think you'll have to run mine and run yours to keep all metrics as close to the same as possible.
I also have a CAI and bigger tires front and back, but I don't think that will matter. The handling on the WK2SRT8 is proving to be better.
The slalom was 8 mph faster and 1 mph hour faster than the 2012 Charger SRT8 and also a smidgen faster than the Cayanne Turbo. That shows me something!

The main point is that we will show that both SRT8 will be fun to run on a full course, no matter who is driving it.....

Re: ***Motor Trend Jeep SRT8 Test Video***

I can understand some bashing from 2006-2010 owners....its just natural. I saw it even worse with the 2005 wk by 1999-2004 owners. Most of them swore off Jeep, bashed, cursed....LOL....then they bought one anyway.....LOL. I can understand some of it though with the price increase.

Re: ***Motor Trend Jeep SRT8 Test Video***

By serious I meant "actually?".

I know little to nothing about both the SRT8's. Was just wondering if it was weight or something. Thought the video said it was slower in numbers then the previous SRT8.

Re: ***Motor Trend Jeep SRT8 Test Video***

Here's a WK1 owner saying I'll throw my WK1 up against any WK2 any day of the week. Anywhere, any track, any time. That is all......
