Thank you for that! I can now save some time, and stop following this thread!

My other vehicle is a C6 Z06 with a 427, so I know all about power. Care to line up next to that?

What can I say, I know the jeep is not dragster, but I don't want it to "drag" when I need that extra passing power at highway speeds on heading from an on ramp to the highway.

Man, you guys have nice cars... It is entertaining to read all this 0-60 stuff on anything but the SRT threads though..

Anytime my friend. The Z06 weighs about 700 lbs less than your Aston and stock produces 505 hp with 0-6 times of 3.7 compared to your 4 seconds....and who said mine was stock lol. Safe driving my friend. But I also love my GC!

Oh yeah! If my bicycle didn't have a flat tire I'd show you what speed is all about.
