Peppy 6 speed auto stick
I have the 6 speed auto stick,and I find my riot to be quite peppy even with the bigger heavier tires and wheels 9lbs. a corner heavier. Like RossoRacer says,I don't ram it to the boards and wait,if I do an acceleration test I roll into it then push 'er down. When I auto stick it through the gears it goes pretty darned good.
Let me put it this way when I leave a light I don't have anyone riding my rear end peed of that I am holding them up...quite the contrary in fact, when I leave a light,and look in the rear view mirror,I've pulled away substantially from the next vehicle either behind or beside....and I'm not trying to jack rabbit off of the light....just normal acceleration from a light.
It isn't very often that I max accelerate away from a light...because...well...it's a jeep...and......"you may be faster,but I can go anywhere"...is my mindset......no my riot is peppy enough,no complaints here.
