Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

Damn that's frustrating, it's not like you can just drop into their shop and swap it over either. Patience is not my greatest virtue I hope you have more of this than I do.

Re: what would you change on the 2014 Jeep SRT?

The car I purchased had the spider monkey's on the car as standard. I think they look great , just tough to clean. It is a good excuse to buy some 21's though.

I would love to see the gear selector also enable the driver to change through the gears during manual shifting.

The manual shift mode should also automatically down shift gears.

I would like...

Re: started at 4.6 sec to 5.7 sec 0-60!??

I would agree with this. Doing back to back runs of 0-100 have consistently resulted in the first run being 0.5 seconds faster than the second. I think this due to the increase in engine temps after...
