when comparing an s.u.v. to a coupe in regards to performance....the comparison does become rather elementary

and your car's handling is weak....i would love to see what numbers our respective cars would post on a track, a more definitive measurement of handling
Well for one, there are quite a few jeeps out there posting sub 13 second quarter mile times(12.7's etc..) with 108-110 trap speeds(look around srt8oc.com for proof) also i am more than confident that if i meet up with any STOCK 335i or an M3 On San Francisquito Canyon Rd. that you guys could NOT hang with a GCSRT8 with a driver that is willing to go balls out... any of you feel up to the challange, let me know

You can outrun a M3 or 335i on the canyon? Wake up and see what that thing you call canyon carver weigh? There is a reason you don't see 4000plus pound SUV on the race track! I don't care how good of a driver you are, it is still a pig.

You wake up and go test drive a GCSRT8! I have walked away from a 550i, G35, S2000, etc... you seriously have no idea how this rig handles. hmm weight? weight is only a problem with a lack or horsepower and torque which is one of many things where the SRT8 shines once again PM me if your up to it...

You guys seriously are clueless arent you so enough bullshit with these remarks. The jeep even outhandles the M5 proven by numerous magazines(skidpad wise) who is up to it if you are all so confident...

I assure you that the GCSRT8 will beat these if not more around the nurburgring.. and the only reason that it is not on there is because they havent tested it yet

Tell that to your massive understeer as you plow through a turn like a friggen boat. Weight is also a problem when stopping, or turning...

My "JEEP" stops from 60-0 in about 120 feet...what does your bmw do im curious? and understeer? ha it has more oversteer if anything... the only thing i would be concerned about is the insane torque steer... which is something six cylinder guys wouldnt know a thing about.

GC
60-0 132ft
80-0 230ft

335
60-0 119ft
80-0 210 ft

If you want torque steer go drive a Maxima, it has a V6 and plenty of torque steer.

yes the maxima has torque steer because of lack of quality materials and by the way the jeep does it in 125ft(drivesrt.com) the SRT8 has a massive strut sitting over the 6.1 and yet is still has torque steer at 120+ furthermore the bmw's sjidpad is 0.86 while the SRT8's is 0.92.

read that to mean "proof" instead of pics All the HP and Torque in the world is useless without Balance. Show me a Jeep that is not 60-40 front to rear weighted and then I might believe.

Don't get me wrong, SRT8 is amazing~

Agreed…I was just pointing out that there are 6’s with torque steer.

I grabbed those numbers from R&T, which I see drivesrt.com has a quote from.

my 'little' 335 and procede has more torque than your big bad jeep. and all doors and windows still work, unlike my two buddies who have a GC and an SRT8. im not looking to measure e penises here, but just wanted to point that out.

Do not even get me started on bmw's and windows they dont work well together i had a 550i(that i traded in on the SRT8) and an E39 M5 before that and on th 550i all besides the left rear window went down and never went back up and the M5 the two front windows did the same. and i can promise you that your proceded whatever will be at the dealer significantly more than my BIG BAD JEEP will
