My 2006 GC SRT8 was great until you "floored it" between 40 -65 mph. Had all the TSB's done and still a SLUG.
Is the new one any better? Maybe someone in Italy will discover that 5 speeds aren't enough.

Mine feels like its getting ready to lift off line an airplane when I floor it at 40 mph, granted I am coming from a Ford F-150 with like a thousand pounds of extra aftermarket mods, but it stills flys compared to other vehicles I've driven (Corvette's and so on).

i thought mine was going to suffer the same thing, and indeed did at the beginning. Was fast but not in that sweet spot. After 2500 PLUS miles its a whole new beast. My son asked me last night when i was merging "holly shit did you do something to it"? Its cold here in Montreal now so it may have something to do with that but my 06 and 10 never had this much of a difference so i def think its the mileage thing that has woken it up.

I just wanted to say (I don't have a WK2) but my '07 was a little slugish at 40. After getting a Johan tune it is now a beats at 40 when I drop the hammer. My dead spot is at about 50/55-60 now and above 85. I agree that gears limit things but as far as at 40 I think the WK1 is strong. Just my $0.02

It is his phone sig. RedEight, please make it one line as it's irritating.

Why did we all decide to comment on his sig in this post (including me)?
Lol
It's been like that for a while.

BTW- I agree, the tune made it seem quicker in the dead spot.

A nice CMR tune should do it, if not get a nice FRI Little Boy cam and the Beast will launch nice at 40 mph... ;)

the tq is what makes this rigs monsters, once that tq falls off, then the hp is not really felt as much.

Lol......sorry fellas.
I will fix. The AutoGuide Mobile App has enough problems obviously, without me contributing to it.
Sorry for the distraction, now let's get back to debating the WK2.........

Sooo, boys and girls, it sounds that unless you do something that voids the warranty the wk2 is STILL A SLUG between 40-65 mph. The new boss is the same as the old boss...:(
