Those of you that have watched cars launch before know what fast looks like. This is crazy quick.

Yeah that's pretty quick. Those 4wd?

I raced a 4.0 Cherokee once in my Mark VIII and lost, because it was raining and I couldn't hook up - I guess he put it in 4 high. I was catching up but let off before the 1-2 shift in order to avoid getting sideways again.

Thats fast, but it would look faster if they had a speedo shot. Or, a sideview shot.

We have a SRT-8 Charger shop project car, I wish it left that hard.

AWD makes everybody fast. That version is the Hennessy venom edition. Reportedly putting down over 500 rwhp.

I'm not sure what the distribution is front to rear bias, but your point is correct. Damn you and your details! :)

Every aftermarket tuner has crap circulating about them:

Lingenfelter
Hennessy
More Performance (now bankrupt)
SLP

Very aggressive drivers + demanding customers + aftermarket tuner = problems down the road. I must say, however, I've heard the least bad things about Mallet. It's naive to think you can crack open a stock motor, add a cam, ported heads, blower or turbo, etc., beat the hell out of it and not have something break.

The issues with Hennessey are far worse than the cars just breaking down.

Hennessey just doesn't taste good. I prefer a fine bourbon or scotch.

It's fast, but it's still a Jeep.

Is Mallet out of Ohio?
