What was the time they answered #2, and #4 was to respond to their question regarding if anyone wanted a manual.

I posted a copy and paste of the chat in the SRT8 wk2 forums done by MikeH. I saw it there.

Like I said before. Thanks. But no thanks. That was wasted time for those who read everything about the SRT8.
This version is just a skipped progression on the WK. The 2012 should have stuck with The bigger motor tried to lighten the weight and keep the price increase modest. If it was a good bit faster like the 2010 chally vs the new 392 chally everyone for the most part would be complacent. Regardless of other expensive options. Then in 2013 add an option for all the extra options and increase that price to where it is now. Then in 2014 come out with the supercharged with upgraded everything for the $75k. The gradual price increase would have been easy to accept than the drastic jump we have now because there is an obvious progression in performance and options/upgrades.

"I asked about the 8" touch screen that the Jeep didn't get but they didn't even touch on that subject."

This subject was not touched on at all, what was there thinking for putting it in a few vehicles and not in others. Has anyone been able to see and play around with the new 8" screen in the 300 or charger? If so is it as nice as it looks in the pictures? This is a big factor in waiting to get the mid year refresh.

Thanks for everyones help and input!!

Re: Thoughts on chat

they dont discuss future products at all in any chats. Thats a main rule of all chats. I do know the infrastructure of the CURRENT WK2's dash does NOT allow for the 8.4" touchscreen to even be an option. The dash was no built for that Nav. Hopefully we will get it at the mid-cycle refresh.

Re: Thoughts on chat

Guys, guys, guys.......
I don't recall porsche offering a chat when I bought my $76K cayenne s....
why is everyone getting bent out of shape if they didn't get the answer they wanted to hear?
cryco is in to make a profit on these, is that a surprise to anyone?
at least they did offer a chat, unlike porsche bmw mercedes land rover audi etc.

Have seen the 8 inch touch screen. Looks good, but I understand why it isn't in the SRT8 yet. The WK2 is the starting point and if the internal wiring / dash and other components aren't in place to accomodate it in the W2K line (Laredo, Limited, Overland) then I wouldn't expect the SRT to have it.

Re: Thoughts on chat

I have played with the new 8" nav in the new Charger. It is really cool. You can do everything from it and the display looked great. It is a must have!!

As for the whole PCM issues, why the hell has Chrysler dropped support for Mopar Performance? It seems like Chrysler doesn't get it at all. We are not asking for them to just release the code and let any dick off the street slap some tune together. All we want is some aftermarket tune, albeit via Mopar or others. If I am not mistaken, Ford and Chevy work with aftermarket tuners to develop aftermarket programmers. If Chrysler is so damn worried about warranty claims and won't release the codes, then at least do the damn thing in house where you can maintain control. When I had my 5.9L, most of the Mopar Performance parts were the best on the market. I had the Mopar Performance ECU which improved performance and adapted to (within limits) to bolt-on's. Chrysler needs to get with the program!!!!

Re: Thoughts on chat

I asked right when the chat started when orders for Canada and US dealers would be filled? What is the delay in production (don't have to give specifics but give us something)? Why have we not seen any of the new WK2 SRT's at dealers yet when ordering opened 3 months ago? Any news on shipping to Canadian markets?

I even said in one of the question, I accept the price is the price and I'm willing to buy it here in Canada ( I ordered mine 3 months ago) but where is my truck? Can we get some sort of schedule please?.........no answer again lol

None of these were addressed...fml

Re: Thoughts on chat

I think this question has been asked 100 times on here:

Comment From Guest
Why 5000 lbs towing on SRT vs 7000 lbs on Hemi GC?

7:23

SRT Engineer 8: The extra power of the 6.4L makes it possible to really put the hurt on the drivetrain over the life of the vehicle. It would tolerate it for a while, but the trans was selected for more for performance (light weight, low first gear, fast shifts, higher rpm limit) over trailer tow.
This same thing holds true on WK1SRT8. It's not the one time or two times you need to tow something heavy.
The ratings used are there to protect from people who constantly tow and are abusive about it.
Nice to know you can tow 7500 lbs if you are smart about it. It's not a safety issue, its a wear and tear issue.

Funny part about the wheels:
Quote:
Ralph Gilles: Ouch....we (ok PDO) love that wheel..our wheel supplier hatse machining it. I hate cleaing it. Interesting love hate reaction...oh well. The old rear wheel does fit all the way around..again the old one. We'll look at optional wheels but it won't be till next spring most likely. Funny the SRT engineers don't like them either.
I don't mind them, but cleaning them has got to be a pain in the balls. And the damn guys who designed the Jeep don't like the wheels...Then who the hell signed off on that? RALPH? IS THAT YOU?
