Quick question: What are you guys doing better than Hennessey, needing a turbo and 650HP to get to 3.9sec?

Really, you are talking about Hennessey modifying the 2013 with the 5 speed vs the 8 speed now. The 8 speed is a beast, plain and simple.

OK, gotcha. The 8-speed makes up for ~200HP, right? So the 9-speed Cherokee beats any Ferrari!

Nah ( smart guy! ) I feel where you are coming from but check this out... The 8 speed tranny is creating much better times than the 5 speed. I don't think Hennessey is putting down an additional 200hp either.

No question! The 8-speed will outperform the 5-speed any day. Still though - 3.9? Does somebody really think they could beat an X5M or ML63? NO WAY! Someone even posted "that's Corvette Stingray performance" .. LOL .. Same HP, half the weight ... but still not as quick as the Jeep SRT. Well all the Charger and Challenger in this world can't kick 'em ... but the Jeep can!!!

We are just posting times here sir... Most are from the EVIC some have been confirmed at the track. Take it or leave it...

With this becoming a freak of nature and challenging physics, I'm happy I own this Jeep. to your question about beating an x5m or ml63... I think it's possible with the right conditions. With that said no one is trying to compare to those here.

The jeep has been said to be faster on the track than the chally and charger.

Dang i think I fell into the troll trap. Again no one is comparing to those other cars just the times we are seeing. Keep it moving nothing to see here.

Well .... I do. So either the Jeep beats them every single time with ease ... or X5 and ML would do 2.5 seconds with the conditions the Jeep does 3.8. Where's the advantage coming from? It can't be the 470hp (because ML and X5 have more and are significantly underrated where as the 470hp are only archieved under nearly impossible conditions) ... so is the the one additional gear ???? (not even sure if the X5 has 6,7 or 8)

I'm not trying to compare to other vehicles and neither is this thread.

You're reaching now. Thanks for playing. Maybe someone more educated in vehicles will politely blow you out the water.
