You said it started as that, if you are going to be picky, be correct...

starfuryt550 I like that jeep in all honesty on the outside, the front fascia is awesome! I don't dig the interior too much though...I always like debates like this because people get so into them!!

Oh yeah, it performs well also! ;-)

besthaticouldo thats what i said! it is the only place. very few SVTfs could take down an SRT8GC in the straights.

kylesvt720 Actually, if you read the post from the start, it is about someone racing a Jeep Grand Cherokee, and then we gather it was probably an SRT-8, then someone makes a comment about smoking it in the twisties, and that gets shot down. Then the thread finaly moves to Auto X. It started as a drag talk, and it jumped to Auto X, because that is the only place an SVT focus would have a chance, sorry, but it's true...

I've been spinning half way down the track getting terrible times (low 10's in the 1/8). He goes and lays down a 8.17, I was a little bit embarrassed. I mean this is a 5-6 thousand pound SUV handing me my ass.
Yeah, this thread started as Auto X, you are correct...

we weren't talking abot road courses...and since when does auto-x not show the true handling of a car. there are some incredibly technical tracks.

Peregrine I'd do it for fun...In all honesty who actually gives a shit about the Jeep anyway?

besthaticouldo well we werent talking about daily driving...

we were talking about auto-x

and for the record. i would love to see a vehicle based on a truck chassis compete with a vehicle based on a european handling cars chassis. thats what it boils down to on an auto-x track. sure everyday that SRT8GC could prolly walk all over me. but throw me on the track and i promise and would be willing to put pick slips down i would eat him alive.
