Re: selling

Don't bring a pen knife to a gun fight...you are driving a 6 cylinder Jeep from the 1900's and can intelligently comment on the nuances of 6 figure vehicles?

Bozo.

Re: quick question for the wk2 srt guys running 22's.

Weight is weight and HP is horsepower, they are numbers and calculations which don't lie, and never will.

There is no way a 5150lb vehicle with 470 hp is getting 3.9 0-60 times.

670hp, 5150 curb weight, AWD, Automatic gets you to 3.9

How much HP are these things putting out...470?

In absence of real power there is always Photoshop.
