Exactly. Most people can't even handle 100hp in an economy car, let alone a 345hp HEMI....or 800hp tuned vehicle. I owned an '88 mustang fastback and had it tuned with all the goodies. It put down 628hp at the rear wheels. The max vehicle HP ratings for a streetable vehicle in my area are 705hp (at the crank). It was implemented in 1998 to stop street racing...HA. I averaged 0-60mph in the low 3sec range depending on how I executed the launch. If it even looked like it was going to rain outside I wouldn't bother taking the car out to the track. The 'stang always ran goodyear slicks. The only thing the 'stang was good at was driving straight - and even that was sometimes hard to do. I'll never purchase a 2wd truck/car again unless it's as a second vehicle or I move to an area that's always 60F+.Hemi5spd said:you guys talk about these truck like they are 800HP street/strip vehicles with slicks on them. Granted you have to be more catious in the rain but geeze. I'd hate to see some of you behind the wheel of something that actually was fast.
My trucks' full time AWD transfer case slips here and there in snow, its fine in the rain providing you don't slam the pedal down. It has been the best vehicle investment I've ever made. I even made it to my store nearly 2 minutes ahead of the cops last febuary when it was robbed at 3am! I live 3 miles father down the road then the cop shop too...sad stuff.
