Re: Need input - 22 inch FR on WK2 SRT...

Generally I'm of the same school of thought. That's why I went Eibach. Even next to another SRT it's hard to tell it's lowered sometimes. It's very subtle but enough. I also feel SUVs should have a...

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: 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...
