For those feeling the need for speed! RAM supercharged wins... No surprise.
Not bad though, it was closer than I thought it would be with the huge difference in horsepower, at least on the second attempt.
Thanx for posting!

I thought this video was going to be awesome and help make my decision between the two. Then wtf. Would it really have been too hard for both of them to hit the gas pedal at the same time? The second run the guy in the TRX "gave him a half second or so" what kind of race is this?!

Oh and not even close to sea level?

Fail. Fail. Fail.

The TRX is super charged which gives it an advantage at altitude....where they were testing in Colorado. At sea level these two perform about the same. There is a side to me that wants to bite the bullet and get the 392...way cool.

How long is it before we see someone strip the suspension, and dump it on slicks lol..

Man I’m in the market but near 80K with some options for a wrangler is hard to chew on. Still desirable though. Bad ass.

The Supercharger is a bit of an advantage at altitude but the TRX has multiple runs by motortrend and others at sub 4 seconds at sea level. The 392 is still running 4.5 at sea level.

Or post some times. But yeah, being at elevation would have thrown this off anyway.
