Re: 0-60 times?
During the engineer chat in September they had provided guidelines on how to reliably hit a 4.8second 0-60 run. Here is a extract from the chat transcript:
SRT Engineer: The procedure is quite simple:
- Switch to TRACK
- Engage 1st gear (paddle or console shifter)
- Raise rpm’s to around 1,000 but not more than 1,100
- Get your foot off the brake pedal as quickly as humanly possible to minimize brake drag, while obviously flooring the gas pedal at the same rate
- Keep a close eye on the tach, when the needle gets to 5,200, shift to 2nd gear
One more note further in the chat:
Comment From Russ
Have you noticed any change in 0-60 and quarter mile performance once the engine has say, 5,000 or 10,000miles on it?
SRT Engineer 7: Its fair to say that as a vehicle breaks in all its rotating components (Engine, Trans, Axle...), it will get faster in the quarter mile. With that said, that curve should stop ~2000-3000 miles...assuming your tires are still in good condition
Hopefully this helps,
