Just found this vid. The Jeep always launches hard, but the ML catches up quickly.

The Jeeps are set up to launch out of the box.
On my last race, the Jeep launched and got me by a half a car, and I passed him before the 1/8th mile came.

Those Jeeps are designed to launch like a mofo. That's their strongpoint. Before I got the E, I was seriously looking at a silver Grand Cherokee SRT8, so I learned quite a bit about them. With just a few boltons one of them was running consistent 12.6 ET's at the track.

I still want one :D

That wasnt me. I found the video on youtube this morning. I almost bought the Jeep before I got the ML. After the test drive, I couldnt stand looking at that pisspoor interior everyday.

Are you bagging on my interior already!! I haven't even bought it yet :rofl:

Actually I might just opt for a powertrain swap into my current Jeep. 1998 Grand Cherokee with the SRT8 engine and tranny, on a RWD drivetrain :clap:
