Hello I have nummber 773. With 500 miles on the clock, I did a couple pulls. In Wisconsin the temperature is cooler, below 50 degrees. Maybe that explains the 4.19 I got. I did inumerable 0-60s with my prior 2010 6 speed. Gradually got that down to a consistent average 5.0, with a best of 4.94. I would frequently get a 4.96, 5.06, 5.01, tight groups with my 2010. But this car has far more torque in the lower range. I will wait now, for more miles, but so far, I am very encouraged. I do not have the same desire to experiment with this car as my prior. It just feels so good, that bottom end torque!
traction control on, NO auto stick....i just floored it the first time and got lucky i guess to get a 4.86
2nd try i tried to feather in the launch, but when i finally did floor it the car slid
i found the shift into 2nd gear to be extremely slow....no snap at all....no churp from the tires...it felt like 1 second just to shift....maybe the auto stick will help that
oh yea i also had a passenger .....i can easily see beating 4.5 if i lost the passenger and got a skid free launch
if this engine is like all the rest ive owned i would assume we can expect a HP increase at 10,000 miles when its fully broken in
2 blocks from my house there is a straight away around 1 mile long with farm fields on either side (no driveways)...perfect spot....problem is cop shop is at the end.....in my area no police on weekends, so i can do as i wish on that road
IM GOING TO DRIVE OVER YOUR CAR
AND DO A BURNOUT ON YOUR HOOD!
I pulled a 5.1 the other day. Wasn't trying super hard, just wanted to do a quick but not "balls out" run from a stop-light in town. I'm having a hard time finding a good place to do a "balls out" 0-60 run. Mine is an automatic with about 1500 miles on it.
2011 SRT8 392 Inaugural Edition - On The Way
1969 Charger R/T 440
R.I.P. 1967 Barracuda Fastback
OK 4.64 without the confusing 2nd gear wheel spin getting false times in the 3s
Did 4.90 with a more lazy launch
I think the car is capable of 4.5s or better with better traction. Current have RS-As
A proper no wheel spin launch is key. My 1st 0-60 in my 10 SRT8 auto when stock was a 4.48. 4.3-4.5 was my normal stock range. With a tune & practice 4.1s are the norm. I use the same test site that's 1/2 mile long starting at 220' & ending at 270' elevation.
With practice I would expect the 11 SRT8s to be hitting some low 4s 0-60.
