0-60 times

Hi all,
How does the 2015 jgc SRT measures the sprint times ? Based on what parameters?
Mine is stock; and it happend with winter tires: nokian wr suv 265/50 R20
On very hot whether i get 4.7 sec.
Normally i get 4.3-4.4 sec.
On a very cold weather i once got 3.1 sec.
(It did feel faster than usually, but i find it hard to believe it really was that fast)
Assuming the computer didn't freeze because of the cold,
i want to try and understand where/how could it be so wrong...
Any insights please.

Thank you all in advance.

No way in hell you got 3.1 - sorry man! lol. No clue how that happened. If you spun the tires up to 60 then it'd probably fool it? Otherwise, not sure.

It's either a Factory Freak or you got a pre-release Hellcat/TrackHawk without knowing.

Yeah without a blower or S/C you can't get these below 3.3-3.5 0-60mph, based on my years of watching the SRT's (WK1 06-present) and their progress with the Engine/ECU/Tranny. Still quite impressive what they have done in s 5k lb SUV

My PB is 3.9 seconds. 3am, 42 degrees out, minimal moisture, Sport/Track mode, NO launch control ...was about 2/3rds warmed up. It was my first pull that morning. I quit on the spot haha. These beasts really like the cold weather, and with good tires they almost always hook on good roads with nice conditions.

Either you were going downhill, or like Nitemare said the tires spun and tricked it into a faster time...
