Its impressive, but not as if he actually ran it 140 on a track.

^^^x2 on the wobble. My first thought was that the tires were going to come apart. I have not seen a Z rated commercial off road tire. Seems they thought of it after their last run. That was cool though.

I've seen it in person at a show, it is pretty wicked

those wheels are disgustingly huge

If only dyno's could account for drag coefficient and weight on the motorway to see what the actual speed would be on the motorways (going straight of course haha)

I guess I don't get it....

To me this screams "I have a tiny wiener". :flipoff:

^that might be because you dont have to worry about that kinda thing :eek:

big horsepower is nothing new, just seems like a hotrod guy got ahold of a JK is all...

sand dunes may need that kinda of raw power but not the tires... rocks might need that kind of tire but not necessarily that much power... that thing wouldnt be able to do 140 on the road for catching air and flipping over (i watch another video where he is htorodding in the parking lot and all is okay straight line but he turned slightly once driver and the driver tire lifted off the ground... scary.)

...and those wheels are only needed for shows... they have no other purpose... and dont look all that great either.

i really like the look of that top... i wish they had some sort of top that looked like that (fastback-ish style) for a yj... :(
