0-60 times.

Okay, lets see how much juice folks have been giving their shiny new 392's by posting your best 0-60 times. Honesty people.

I'll kick it off. Did a gentle 6.03 during run in last week. Hit 500miles yesterday and even without full throttle, traction control on and no pre-revving before dropping the brake it did a 5.25s today. Mines an auto. I feel it needs a bit more easing in before I really let it rip. There's definitely a lot more time it the car.

Be great to hear if anyone has slammed out a sub 4.5s yet.

I did 4.90 last week. Best of 4 passes.

600 miles on the car, auto trans, chip-sealed road surface, RSA tires, heat-soaked engine (at the end of 100 mile drive), 4,800 ft. above sea level, 60*F. ESP completely off.

I need to try this again on a smooth asphalt surface.

ESP is the Electronic Stability Program...it looks after both the Traction Control system and YAW control system (trying to fishtail around a corner it will work the brakes to stop it).

There is a little button on the radio stack at the bottom....press it once and it will allow more spirited driving and wheel spin....press and hold it for 8-10 seconds, and you will here a chime....that means the system is completely disabled.

Best time right now is 4.82 with esp on. I havent tried off but I will. I already have 3400 miles on mine. I just got a ticket the other day so I've been cooling my jets for a little bit. Luckily I got let off with a warning, I was doing 86 in a 55. Definitely time to let my old @$$ passport go and upgrade to the Valentine one.

Hey 09r/t you have any larger pics of your ride? I have a DWB IE and have been interested to see what the viper wheels would look like.

John Lang its alright bro, that's what the forums all about. you may run into jerks but disregard.

Quick Time!

Have been breaking in my IE 392 #862 across the RPM range for the last month. Currently have 300 miles on it and just had to see what she could truly do and here are the numbers: Temp=85 degrees, Surface=New asphalt, Humidity=45%, warm up drive across city. Results: loss of grip in rear end in first but grabbed in 2nd and thrid was blistering:0-60.....3.64 sec! Seriously! See the attached "BEST TIME" pic!!!

Just yanking your chain Huggy! Still trying to get use to the unbelievable power the 392 has. Pulled a 4.9 and 5.1 on different runs today...the image was forwarded to me by a friend but the other numbers were true minus the milage (700)! lol!!
