The '1320 Video' channel is one of the best street racing channels on YouTube. Awesome material.

As for this video, I love it. Can't wait to hear Tim's opinion :)

So that's what happens when ya put a big bad engine in a lawnmower... ;)

jeeps weigh like 3,000 lbs give or take....it's pretty common to see them at sand drags and what not. I can't classify that as a "jeep" though as it does not seem to have a front driveshaft and therefore is only 2WD. I can tell you that my old CJ5 with a AMC 304 V8 would bark 31 inch tires in all 3 gears and you could feel the frame twist and front un-load when you hit the skinny pedal hard.

but being my age I have to give a pro's and con's list of the vid...

Pro's:
it has a "jeep"
it has a Porsche
people go fast

Con's:
people are going fast in places where there are minivans driving
people are watching those videos and encouraging more of them
some guy put a shit-ton of power in a high center of gravity, short wheelbase vehicle and kept the front solid axle but only has a lap belt for a safety device.

it's really the last one that gets me......if he hit's a squirrel at 85 mph that thing is going turn and roll so fast it will be like a cartoon....and the tub of that jeep will look like a smashed can of sealed sardines with the heads removed. You would think that with all the money and effort put into the engine he would have least went to a junkyard and got one of the hundreds of thousands of Jeep roll bars out there and fit one on.

ok fuddy duddy spoilsport off. :roll: :D
professional driver. closed course. do not attempt.
