0-60 bested my best

Hey guys, ran 3.8 0-60 tonight. Outside temp was 18, the beast was running for about 5 minutes or so, track mode and smashed the gas. I hooked up pretty well.

Mods:
blizzak's
Drop in K and N
After market wheels from Blackops
Tinted the front windows. I heard tint drops your 0-60 by .2 seconds...ha.

On the way home thought I wanted see if I could do it again. Drove the beast for about 15-20 minutes, this time track mode with LC around 2900 RPM - got another 3.8. I was shocked to see that time twice.

I can't say it enough, these Jeeps are awesome! Can't wait to start the mods!

Happy New Year everyone!!

Please be safe,
Zach

Re: 0-60 bested my best

somewhere i read that doing hard launches when the oil isnt up to operating temperature is very bad for the motor, might wanna do some googleing on that subject before beating it up in 18 degree weather any more

Re: 0-60 bested my best

I will look into it, but I keep my garage around 50 degrees. The temp gage was up so I wasn't worried about it. I would never hammer on the car unless it was warm.

If you watch you will note the oil warms up much slower than the coolant

Re: 0-60 bested my best

I just turned over 10k miles on my 2013. Gas tank almost empty, around 20F, one way 4.4 sec - return trip 4.8 sec. (to counter a possible slope in the road). The crazy thing is that it did not feel fast. I had other cars that did not perform that good but made it feel fast. It was effortless - which is awesome in another way.
