KRAZY...fast for a 3 ton vehicle. I like the sound of those solid gear changes. Wonder if Ram gives it a tow rating.

Google answered the question of whether the 190 was KM or MPH but the result was ridic either way. Fun video, thanks for sharing.

Over in Europe currently and there is a surprising number of Dodge 1/2 ton trucks around...nothing like the N. America but not unusual.

I'd be curious how it compares to a 1960-70 vintage supercar (Ferrari/Lambo/etc). I wouldn't be surprised at all if in professional hands it could turn in better times.

The TRX and Wrangler 392 are speed limited to 118 (although the Wrangler may be 108). This is solely due to the tires.
As far as brakes. I still can’t believe they use stock brakes on these things. But again, they are limited to 118, so I guess they feel the stock brakes are enough, but not so much when used hard!

Man, did I have some misconceptions? I always figured a vehicle would have the track to itself when working a track time. That place looked like rush hour on the 205. Beautiful track.

I liked the turn signals to indicate a pass or give way. In this country we can't get them used to signal a turn.
