Going to hopefully set some records.....fastest N/A 4.7 non-HO WJ (current time to beat is 15.08) and first N/A 4.7 non-HO WJ in the 14's....

Will likely not happen because of the heat, but we shall see....

I used to live like 10-15 minutes from that place, tons of fun there. Good luck!

DA is going to be an issue Weds night. The heat here has been even more brutal than normal (97 today), we'll see what happens.

My SCT tune is getting pretty close to dialed in. Considering raising my shift points to 6k to keep my trans from shifting into 3rd at the big end of the track.

You mean into 4th ;).
Can't wait for the times, even if they are corrected.

No Mario, I mean shifting into 3rd. The SRT8 has that problem because of the gearing, but the WJ with the 4.7 and 545rfe is MUCH taller.

I'll provide both my corrected and uncorrected times.

You mean you'll go a 1/4 mile in 1st and 2nd without going into 3rd? :confused:
I don't think that's possible bro.

Ok...I know what OSW is now...lol...

Dammit I would have loved to go with you. Would be soo much fun!

I will keep my fingers crossed that you get those numbers!

And yes...the WJ's 3rd gear is really, really long. I think...it can take you to the limiter right? Shiftpoints to 6K FTW! :D

in a stock WJ, it likely wouldn't be. with the 31's, I can probably cross the traps in 2nd at 5900 rpm or so. The 2-3 shift occurs at about 80-82mph- I usually trap around 84.5 uncorrected.

Don't believe me, run the wifey's WJ....

I can't wait to hear your results Ryan. Those would be some nice records to break.
