there are multiple tracks all over Ontario and Quebec, the one for Quebec is the ICAR track if it is busy its moved to the Sanair track, I even know the driver that will teach you the track, she (one of the best drivers out there) is one of my drivers I managed for years in racing. If you have the chance take it, its worth it to do the either track, both are really nice. Sanir you will look at the walls from pretty close lol, In Ontario its Mosport, or shannonville, both are great tracks but Mosport is an old F1 track, very nice.


Oh by the way Crusher, where in Quebec are you?

so i finally went for my test drive,...

and wow.,.. what a machine that srt grand cherokee, it's just amazing to drive,.. i did a test,.. the max speed on the roads i was on was 55mph so i decided to check the mpg at that speed,.. average of 22.5mpg at 55miles per hour on the cruise control,.. that is impressive considering the power it has,.. and boy,.. you press on it, there is absolutly no delay,.. very easy to be overspeeding,.. but wow it's fun,..

so the choice at that point was very easy,. but decided to retry a ram and for the same 55mph testing,.. they let met test a laramie limited but the 5.7 bed was full of compacted iced snow,.. so i would say at least 500pounds but not sure,.. the result was average of 18 -19 mpg at 55mph with the bed full of snow,..


so i wanted the srt and was ready to sign for it but the dealer did not want to give me the original price that we had agreed at the begening of december(68000$ plus taxes) he now wanted 74000 plus taxes,..

so i'm happy to say that i will be a happy ram owner again soon, the order was place for my ram begining of december, it is still not schedule for buit but should be soon

for some reason he did not want to do the original price on the srt but I negociated a other 2500$ off the ram,.. weird,.. anyway cant wait to get it now

I saw -24 plus windchill. I didn't go out. lol

The thing w the SRT8 is that it will be easier on gas while you are cruising because it doesn't have to work as hard. But once you get on it, as you likely would a lot, it will drink it faster than you can say "I am the Batman."

Yup....that wasn't right they didn't honor their original price.....that SRT will sit there until they lower the price again.
