Re: New 2012 Jeep SRT8 track vid-watch and listen

No one can realistically expect every new model released to be faster than the last. If they were, eventually we'd be expecting the new SRT to do 0-60 in ZERO.

I think over the past decade or so we've been spoiled with the increase in performance of all vehicles, hell, 10 years ago who would have thought you'd be able to buy an SUV with this kind or performance, for this kind of money?!

Additionally, I think we may have passed the horsepower peak, the days of Audi and others selling 600hp + saloon cars are numbered. Fast and efficient is where the future is. Although this SRT is far from efficient, I think they've taken measurable steps towards it.

I for one would gladly sacrifice a couple of tenths here and there for a better rounded drive, and more refinement.

It's because we race the quarter mile, of course. Eleanor Roosevelt said it best "America is all about speed. Hot, nasty speed!" the quarter mile track and a left turn circle track are America's bread and butter in automotive sports. So let's take those of us who beat the piss out of our rigs at the track. I'd rather start out with a stock vehicle running sub 13 second passes versus + 13 second passes as I'm that much closer to 11's (my own personal benchmark) thus making my pursuit in HP and speed one with a leg up so to speak.
Some of us could imagine doing nothing else than actually using these rigs for what SRT meant them to be used for. Maybe this though would answer your question best. Do you know what SRT stands for? If you do then you answered your own question.
