Re: Does This Seem Slow To You?

Thinking back on a couple 0-60 runs I did... I think you should leave ESP off.

I did my runs by keeping it in D, tow/haul was off and on my first run I had ESP on and I just floored it from a stop and it felt like a dog off the line, I didn't even power brake it or anything - just floored it off idle.. I'm thinking the computer held back power.

I then ran a test with ESP off and it felt quicker off the line.

I personally feel that I get the fastest acceleration if I roll into the throttle instead of just flooring it.

Get a Dashhawk Joe!
Add 100 octane next time we are at the track.
All I can tell you is that for the mods you have you are running very strong now in the summer, in winter you'll brake the 14.3

Re: Does This Seem Slow To You?

meh... sounds nice!


Maybe you could tape the camera on that little flat ledge in front of the guages to film, that way you can shift through the gears yourself. When i did 0-60 on my 4.7 with totally stock settings, the autostick was almost a half a second faster every time, as opposed to stomping on it in drive.

Dashhawk. Thats next on my list.


You think I am running very strong?

And what do you think about the tow/haul Mario?

We are, but it doesn't hurt to throw the occasional "**** you" line once in a while.

Re: Does This Seem Slow To You?

Joe, I have noticed a difference in my 0-60 by just removing my antenna. Do you still have yours? I predict i gained about 10-15+ horses easy. O wait nevermind we arent driving gay ass litte imports. It seemed ok to me but next time you video tape while driving y dont you invest in some double sided tape and put the camera on the steering wheel like i do.?.?
