I watched it late last night...we had Rutledge...enough said. Although...stock for stock the RR runs a 12.7 vs. the 13's 13.1

SRT8 only naturally aspirated SUV of the three so not quite fair comparison...at least my roof doesn't leak like the RR did last night!

Does anyone know the episode number? I just found that Comcast has the show 'on demand', but they are not always up to date. And, they often leave out the 'first aired date'.

Wow, that sucks. I always thought the sport was a tad slower than our rigs. Great. Now I know the few mustard sniffers in town can take me in their RR's.

If the 2014 RR sport loses as much weight as the standard RR, we are going to be even further behind. And not to sound like a hater, but its time Ralph takes his gloves off and slaps the shit out of the these foreigner rides. At this point and the cost of the current '14 Jeeps, I dont think Chryco could design a turbo'd or SC engine and make it affordable where people could still say the Jeep is 30K less and has comparable performance.

I was thinking the same thing...they shed over 400 lbs of the HSE, so if the Sport receives the same trim down, the SRT is in trouble for the near future. :mad:

that show sucks... the whole thing is a joke and those guys are clowns. itd be alot more interesting if they actually showed them comparing the suvs instead of making the whole thing a spoof.
