No Burnouts??? :0
 
so we have a ritual here where i live, every year when it rains for the first time, me and the guys go out to a nearby skid pan and play for a while doing burnouts and a few donuts...i had a big hard on this year wanting to try out the hemi but was awfully shocked to find out that even with the traction control off and sport mode on the car wont even make a burnout, was really frustrated :mad:

so whats the story with this wk2, is it really not possible to do what i've been trying to do, or am i missing something here???

3 things working against you...

It's a 4X4, it has awesome traction and a brain that can't be fully disabled.

Isn't it more of an AWD than a 4x4? :p

I think the "brain" is the the big one here. It would be nice to disable that BS fully and have some fun. I was suprised though, I got a few good donuts in the other week in the snow. Sport mode and a lot of throttle got it spinning pretty good, my wife wasn't too happy but the kids liked it. :)

I did perfect donuts on grass with the TC off and it spun just fine. Maybe the power of the diesel is greater than the Hemi :slapfight:

very depressing, having a hemi 5.7 and not being able to play a bit is disappointing. i wish i can buy a second car :(

Seems silly that you want your Jeep to do burnouts!! Not only is it made for doing everything other than burnouts but the tires regardless of size are not exactly cheap. Take $2000 and go buy an old pre 1990 camaro or mustang V8, put some cheap ass pep boys rock hard tires on there and smoke away!! Then you can use your rather expensive SUV for more practical applications. IMO of course.:headbang:

Agreed Sliter'12Overland. It's amazing to me that people can drop $30-$50K on a really nice vehicle and publicly complain about not being able to do burnouts. Jeeps are meant to get great traction. It's difficult to have the best of both worlds.

I had the Selec-Terrain in Auto on some sand dunes and struggled to break the tires loose, which to me is rather impressive.

I have had no trouble getting my 2011 overland 4x4 5.7 to go sideways in snow, rain, grass, and yesterday drifted in a very sharp curve. Actually scared the piss out of me but was fun and will do it again I'm sure. It's all about momentum no car brain can change physics...

how is it hard to understand that people want to have fun with their vehicles? I have a big scratch down the side of my new Jeep because I slid off a sand dune and into a bunch of trees on the OBX this year on vacation, it's just a vehicle to have fun with IMO.

I wish I could do burnouts in my Jeep, they are fun. It's not like the JGC is anything real special, it's just like any other mid/high priced suv.
