Re: New 2012 Jeep SRT8 track vid-awesome

I just watched this video for the first time...and I'm amazed. #1 by the fact that this jeep has been designed FOR THE TRACK. The truck clearly can pull its weight through the corners properly and doesn't necessarily have to go fast in a straight line. #2 So many people seem to be focusing on the fact that the truck doesn't run 11s in the 1/4 mile stock! The engineer clearly says that the new challenger MAY be faster GIVEN THE PROPER LAUNCH but the jeep will consistently be king. So what if it added 500 lbs...we'll have a better crafted vehicle than the WK1 (supposedly) with more advanced technology (eLSD FTW). So what it's been "estimated" at a 4.8s 0-60...its still faster than most things you'll encounter on the road. I could have had a 2010 at any time...but I chose to get the next-gen model because it truly is the next step for the SRT Jeep. Personally...I cant wait to get my hands on my 2012!

Re: New 2012 Jeep SRT8 track vid-awesome

If you get all of the options that is like 500lbs extra. So much for a close race then!

Re: New 2012 Jeep SRT8 track vid-awesome

I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT NO ONE CAUGHT THE COMMENTS ABOUT THE JEEP SRT8 vs. THE CHALLENGER SRT8 IN THE 1/4 MILE AND 0-60......watch and listen folks

We caught it. I caught it. It says MAY be quicker in the 1/4 but didn't say FOR SURE..

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

I heard them..... didn't feel the need to dribble on about them though.

Bit of a mute subject for me, we don't get the Chally here.... only the 300C

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

I posted this video about 3 days ago and no one caught it then either....lol


Everyone knows the challenger has been in the wild doing less than a 13 second 1/4 mile right? like 12.5????? and the jeep can keep up wit it consistently and bbeat it most of the time......
