    Re: tail of the dragon

    At speed on the Dragon in the old SRT-6.

    Too heavy, too wide tired, too automatic, too hard a hit when the supercharger engages.
    Not well suited for the Dragon and especially not well suited for the Devils Triangle another challenging set of curves nearby.

      Re: tail of the dragon

      I think I'll stick to driving the Bird.

      Our son's scout patrol advisor was one of the three surgeons who performed the first heart transplant in San Antonio.

      Fred referred to bikes as "Donor Cycles," for a very good reason.

        Nice. Very nice.

          After many great Dragon runs in my late modified, supercharged MINI Cooper S, I tackled it in my modestly modified 'Bird. Absolutely not the same...

            That MINI's wheel base and responsiveness must be great on the Dragon. They sure look well suited for each other.

              Thank you. It is a true monster previously owned by an Indianapolis guy. The first person to come see it bought it.

                I live within the area and drove it several times. Last time was in my F-150 CrewCab Lariat and it was a little scary . Will do the "new" bird in the spring. I go that way on my way to Knoxville hot rod shows. Have done it in my 53 F100 hot rod pickup and in my 34 Chevy hot rod.

                  I'm anxious to experience it in my Jag F-Pace. Should perform somewhere between the Mini and the Bird.

                    Working in Murphy, NC and determined to get home to my family in Gatlinburg, I was not going to let the closing of 441 due to the hazardous heavy snow and ice conditions keep me from getting there. I found 129 on an atlas and took it that snowy night.

                    My first exposure to the Dragon.

                      If you have not tried it, consider visiting the Cherohala Skyway. It will not be as fun as the Dragon with the MINI but makes for a pleasant run.

                      As a Jag guy myself it is nice to see a Jag that smells, looks and performs like a Jaguar should being produced again even if it is an SUV. That quality is hard to match.

                      Congratulations on the buy.
