I wouldn't mind driving one for a day but that's about it. (edit) Oops. I didn't even know about that SUV until now. Not even interested in driving it.

Actually the Durango gets pretty good reviews on the track. Short example, starting at 1:10

Can you supply me with rotors for a 2wd '06 F150? That would be swell.

06? I could if you want to wait about 6 months until the next service order comes up. Probably cost more to ship hem then they would be worth though.

I saw an SRT8 at an autoX day a while back and it was pretty impressive. Dude was laying down respectable times.

I have seen a couple Challengers at track days and they are surprisingly quick for such a big car.

Side note, co-worker took his Cayman in for some work at the dealership and they loaned him a Taycan S for the day. He said the acceleration is nauseating

I had a co-worker that purchased a Tesla... He claimed that it "took him almost a year to not [unintentionally] drive like an a$$hole". I have no idea if the accelerator is as touchy as he claims, or if he just had a lead foot.

My co-worker said he had a hard time not mashing away from stoplights because it accelerates so effortlessly. You don't really notice how fast or hard it is pulling till you look at the speedo.
