The DriveSRT team arrived in Indianapolis this week with the Thunder of 2,350 horses. What impressed me, or surprised me, the most was these five 470 Horsepower beast were driven, not trucked to this event. That says everything you need to know about the daily driver nature of these vehicles. SRT stands for Street and Racing Technology, this group has not lost sight of the fact that they aren't building just track cars.
The DriveSRT team is currently involved in the SRT High Performance Tour. They are traveling around the country piloting some amazing vehicles. This past Monday, Tom O'Brien Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, on 96th Street, was lucky enough to be their exclusive stop in central Indiana. The SRT Club was invited, and through out the night had a good showing. A short, but exhilarating Acceleration/Braking track was setup, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 and Chrysler 300 SRT8 were put through their paces. Visitors had the opportunity to experience the 470 HP/470 LB-FT of torque first hand.
The Drive SRT team has continued on, leaving us in awe of their dust. Links to follow their journey are at the end of this post.
