Default SRT8 Jeep, daily driver, video of 9.45 pass

Guys,
Been lurking in the background, time to jump onboard!

Anyway, I drove my 2007 SRT8 Jeep 11 hours to Quaker City dragway where my company sponsored a Gen III Hemi event.
Changed all 4 tires and ran a 9.46, wheels up....quickest Gen III Hemi that day.
VERY fun ride, goes straight as Hell and I put it in drive, let go of the tranny brake (NAG1 transmission) and hold on.

BTW, it puts 1142whp to the rear tires.

Enjoy...

Nice pass , dang that cool. But it dont make 1100 hp. You need a engine dyno not rear wheel dyno those things lie alot, especially when a company trying to get biz. Either way its a fast jeep. Very cool..truck

So just exactly how much power you think it takes to get a 5600 lb truck to run mid nines.

The truck dont weight 5600 pounds , it weights 4700 stock. But if it made that power the time would match, so I stand corrected and apologize to the OP for my mouth.

You know this dude ? Hes a little heavier ( all wheel drive ) but still getting it done . Blew a line off the intercooler on this pass so it was a tad slow . I've seen it run times like yours .

It would be a good race ............ or have you raced already ?

great job .

Did you go 2 wheel drive because of trans failure on the high dollar stuff ?

I think the guy in my video might hold a record for stock suspension jeep . I might be wrong though .

Sorry I was off by a little. Jeep says the 2WD weighs 4887, figure 180-200 for a driver and you are still over 5000. Quite a bit of heft to motivate those times.

That guy is a great friend of mine and uses my companies complete driveline.
I had him by 2 tenths. He has been out of racing since that day although he is getting the bug to blow my doors off!


I went 2 wd because my Jeep launches without the front tires touching the ground on the launch.
There is NOT an SRT8 Jeep that is close to my 1.40 60'.

I THANK the members here for helping me to decide to go 15" wheels on the rear (Wilwood brakes)
Sooo, I'll see how the stiff wall Mickey Thompson 15" slicks work.
Test, test, test.
So few of us really know how a 5000 pound rig (me in it + full roll cage)will react.

Pretty damn fun stuff guys!
