While we are waiting for the final price.....

do you think the 2012 SRT8 will be able to be track worthy to be raced like this?

Are there SRT clubs that offer track days?

Re: While we are waiting for the final price.....

Boston.
I checked into this a while ago. There is no SRT group yet. Maybe you can start one! LOL..
But there is a couple venue's that we can run our trucks on at Limerock.
I'd have to dig up the info, but no one was interested when I wanted to do it.
I think cost was around $250.

Cool..... we should start something......probably even NHMS might have events....

I can run with the WK2 and you or another WK1 owner can run theirs around for a few laps and we can then compare lap times between the two trucks..... (they both have to be in the pure stock form for fairness)

Maybe we can even have spectators (SRT8 owners) rooting for their model year to win...... or we can just video it and post it here..........

Re: While we are waiting for the final price.....

Trouble will be finding somone that is still totally stock.
And from my previous experience with asking, people aren't into turning on tracks here. They like to go 1/4 and straight.
Which when you get yours, we'll be contacting you to head up to New England Dragway for some runs.

Are you serious? 1/4 mile and straight? Where is the excitement there?
You got to convince your SRT8 buddies that 30 minutes at a good pace on a full course track is pure ecstasy.......

once they try it they will never want to go back to the 10 sec. drag........

BTW, I wouldn't mind running against a modded WK1 on a full course like Lime Rock, that way we can determine how much of a difference they make on the truck and if they are really worth the money, what do you think?......

Hitting .97 gs on a turn is way more fun than .7 at the launch! Problem is the turns eat tires so much quickly than the sticky launch pad at the strip.
Plus it is fun to smoke the camaro and mustang crowds with a 5000 lb SUV

I'm in either way.

Re: While we are waiting for the final price.....

Let's leave it to QuickOne to organize it.......he seems to have the right connections in our neck of the woods.....

BTW, I am going to need some coaching in the 1/4 mile event if I am going to try it.......
