Re: steering wheel vibration - TSB 6-11-14

Jeep is dropped off. I have them doing a few things so I won't get it back for a while. My wife just had a baby July 4th so I'm using her car now. No rus. I'll keep everyone posted

Re: New 2015 Challenger Hellcat

Hellcat is meant to compete with the ZL1, not the Z28. Two different animals. Hellcat is a straight line machine.

Re: steering wheel vibration - TSB 6-11-14

Just spoke to my service adviser. Bringing it in on Monday. He confirmed the Brake Booster Recall and Wheel Vibration TSB both apply to the SRT.

Re: AftermarketWheel Finish Advice...

Another question for aftermarket wheel guys. What's the procedure with the TPMS? Do I order an extra set from Mopar? Can discount tire supply the TPMS?

Re: Jeep - RS5 - ISF

1/4 mile the RS5 is faster but 0-80 comes down to driver and/or who gets the jump. The is the first time I've run the ISF so I'm not sure how it does in the 1/4. Off the line I have him and to 80 for...

Re: 14 SRT Vs. RangeRover Vouge

No doubt the new RR is fast. However, what Scott said is correct. In warm weather the factory SC cars aren't affected nearly as bad ass the NA SRT is. I know this for a fact from testing with...

Re: Almost GO TIME...Ripp supercharger inhand and ready for install

^ In the "winter" I'm doing consistent 4.0 - 4.3 regardless of weight. Summer I'm doing 4.8-5.2. 4.8 has to be on low gas and no passenger. Occasionally I'll squeeze out a 4.6 or 4.7. Now that I'm...

Re: Almost GO TIME...Ripp supercharger inhand and ready for install

I think something people forget with the low NA Jeep times, on the 14s at least, is that they are due to low DA. Bring your Jeep doing a 3.8 to Houston right now and it's going to run a 4.8 on low...

Re: V rated tires ok replacement?

I have a special one time deal on some 22" iForged for a little over $4k. Custom made for the SRT. With a baby on the way it's making it very hard for me to pull the trigger. Not sure what to do.

Re: BWP adjustable control arms for lowered cars

I'll have to agree with him sounding like a dick on the other forum. I did however order the revised end links so we'll see how they turn out. For $180 it's worth a shot. If they fail I'll toss them.

Re: V rated tires ok replacement?

It looks like I may be ordering a set of custom forged 21s after all. I don't want 22s. I don't want FR. I don't want cast wheels. I don't want run flats. I don't want bootleg tires. FML. LOL.
