Welcome to best forum. Yeah my lotus felt slow against a stock srt8, supercharged would be a joke. Lol. The torque is addicting. It will definately be cheaper keeping the jeep running fast.

Thanks for the compliemnts on both vehicles. Don't get me wrong guys ... the Ferrari is a blast to drive, and handles amazingly well. However ... I am a "muscle car" guy at heart (442 guy to be exact), and there is no replacement for torque (IMO). The Ferrari needs to "wind up" to 7500 - 8000 RPM before you can even get a decent amount of acceleration/torque, but it sure does sound good at those high RPM's

Sadly, both vehicles are going into storage this week as it looks like the snow and slop are approaching Minnesnowta. Time to brush off the winter toys and put the summer toys in hibernation!

3/4 ton GMC Turbo Diesel Crew Cab is the winter vehicle ... need the diesel for pulling 4 place+ enclosed snowmobile trailer and not having to stop for fuel every 250 miles! Can't wait for snow now that I think about it!
