One question has plagued man for ages: What's faster, a Jeep, a Viper, or a Potato? It seemed like nobody would ever get an answer. Well, with a little help from the boys over at Gizmodo's brand new TV show, we have been able to answer that age old question once and for all for you, the people.
This beautiful brown beast is the 2013 Ford F-250 Super Duty Platinum. It's gigantic. It's loaded down with luxury features like heated and cooled leather seats.

If you're gonna hang out with a bunch of car enthusiasts in Austin, you've gotta do it at some food trailers. I think it's a city ordinance.
This just happened thanks to Hennessey's drag strip. Yes, it was as fun as you think it was.
We are so full of food. And stories. Mostly food. Come have more food and stories at the Dock And Roll Diner in Austin tonight at 7:00 pm. We're buying the first round of rolls and beer until we run out. Meet up with the Jalopnik team and the guys from the Gizmodo TV show. We'll also have the Viper, a Grand Cherokee…
When you assemble car enthusiasts and add beer and lots of hot cars with loads of horsepower, you're guaranteed to have a good time. Thanks to all of the Jalopnik folks who added Houston to their cross country trek to Austin. It was great meeting all of you, and seeing the new SRT beauties up close and personal.
Last night we had a great party in Peacthree City for Jalopnik and Gizmodo readers .

That didn't stop nearly a dozen fans from hanging…
Here we find the Viper and SRT Grand Cherokee in their natural habitat.
Kia as seen from the loud and wonderful V10 beast.
Oh hi there.
Let's say you have a 470 horsepower Jeep and an open invitation from NASCAR to come hang out for a few hours. What do you do? You go play on their race simulators and make an ass out of yourself practicing a pitstop. That's what you do.
Mascari tries his first Cracker Barrel. Chicken livers are delicious. We'll see you all in Peachtree City tonight at 8:00 PM. Travis might be a little late as he's in Charlotte waiting for the Viper. But we'll be there and we hear Rutledge Wood might bring something special, weather permitting. Plus the Gizmodo guys…
Big thanks to Justin for the tour of SPEED. Now we're off to top secret location 2 and then on to Atlanta tonight.

Hit a little rain, may miss trivia. Heading to find some grub.
It's big. It's white. It has 470 horses. Look out.
Important updates to our SRTxSW Road Trip we told you about last week. We will be skipping DC tonight because of the crazy Snowquester snow storm heading that way and will instead take the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT to Raleigh, North Carolina and will meet the Viper at another location. Also, we can now tell you Gizmodo…
Spring is nearly here and we're anxious to trade the dark hipster monastery that is the Gawker office for the beautiful open highways of America. And what better escape vehicle than an SRT Viper GTS? We're going on a road trip, y'all, and we're bringing some friends. Come hang out with us on our SRTxSW adventure.
