Its easy to lift the wheels on any 2 door wrangler with a mild V8 and up. The short wheel base makes the perfect storm when romping the gas. Talk about a scary ride if you dont expect it!

JackdUp One of the guys I worked with a while back wanted to race his Jeep vs my Vette. Said he may not win at the end, but promised he'd rip me off the line through 1st and 2nd gear. His jeep was pushing over 500 hp. Probably would have resembled this video upload. Hahahaha

Blackened Aerodynamically there is no such thing as a fast Wrangler.

ed_s I've often thought about the 6.4 Hemi conversion but have always come back to the same answer – why?

I have my JK and love it but know it’s on road limitations. If I want some speed and fast cornering I’ll take out the DBS and likewise I love it but know its off-road limitations i.e. it has no off-road abilityJ

kozmos Wow, shame on the safety steward for allowing that. Absolutely not allowed at a sanctioned SCCA solo event.

FiveBoro Well apparently you can autocross one.

I agree. I like the idea of a fast rally car, but the jeep is just not the platform to build it on. Solid axle and fast just don't seem to work well together. I mean, I'd rather a jeep than a raptor, but I'd prefer a WRX over either of them.

Course, I'm doing a rally race in the jeep next week, so I'm one to talk. Not that point!

I kno lol i mean agressive cornering for racing haha
02-12-2012 08:06 PM
Celtic The issue with corners is that most folks drive in too fast and too deep. The key is to have patience and hold your line on entry. And for those who have not mastered it yet, you don't want to bring it up to full throttle until you see the exit cone and know it's time to leave in a hurry.

If you are smooth, you will be surprised at what your Jeep can do!
