I think grouping all the problems in this post makes it seem like new TRX are having major issues.

I can tell you I just received my LE and so far so good. It’s been driven a long distance and now up through some tough weather at Jackson Hole Ski area. ICe and mountain terrain and wind. It handles like a champ. No issues at all. In fact the only problem is that is has so much power it tends to drift over the speed limit without any effort. Not a bad problem at all. It makes the high pitched sound at idle which I believe is normal for an engine of this caliber. The one thing missing is a TRX forum cabin at Jackson Hole. Enjoy!

Unfortunately the drive on more rigorous road I could not record because of being focused on driving. But see the video I attached of the main road. Handled like a champ.

Which is even more justification for a 5.7 L or 392 TRX instead of the hellcat, Hell cat owners of the Challenger and charger say it’s just too much power to the pavement and not very practical even in the rain I give the trx about one or two years and then you’ll start seeing variance much like the widebody charger and challenger which is good for ram because they’ll sell more vehicles to those who cannot afford a $90,000 pick up truck

Awesome. Good to hear positive news.

I second the forum cabin idea. Jackson is an awesome mountain. I’d be up for Big Sky as well.

For now I’ll sit on my butt in Winter Park, CO. Can’t wait to get my truck and bring it up here.

Maybe a cabin at each major ski resort for ram trx owners

This thread is a lie. There is no such thing as too much power given an advanced traction management system.

Thats not from power. They just put way too little tire on it to handle the power

was thinking same thing for tires....and AWD is perfect for rain..
When the hcat came out and I saw the tires they put on I just laughed and took my money elsewhere. I prefer rwd cars but thats from my California days. I now live somewhere that has a winter and would totally consider an awd widebody hcat.

Nice! Where were you at. We lapped challenger all day 9-4:30. If you were over there we probably crossed paths.

Not even with 305 size diameter tires? 315 diameter on the super stock
Weren’t they high 2xx like 275’s at the start?

315 pilot sport cup 2’s or r888r or trofeo r’s sure. I recall them being hard compound nonsense. I could be wrong.

Wow. It most certainly is not a lie. Everyone mark Bambi as a Ford troll.

I’m totally a troll but I’m an independent equal opportunity troll. A ford troll would say the power isn’t usable and their faked exhaust note is just as good as a v8

Congrats on getting your LE. know that road well. Grew up just south of Palisades Resevoir and went skiing almost every weekend in Jackson as a teenager.

Congrats on the LE!

Imperial.... you can always buy the sixer Challenger or Charger and be the most practical of all. These trucks have been reporting 7mpg and you’re hoping for “practical?”
