Re: New Best 0-60 time last night.. 3.8 seconds

I completely trust you guys. I don't trust the EVIC when it gets that low. Why? Because that's such an insanely awesome time for such a heavy jeep it blows my mind. It's too good to be true. We need an independently verified time that we can go rub in our friends faces.

At the very least some you sub 4 guys in colder climates need to line up next to an ML63 or X5M. If you beat them handily you can be rest assured the times are accurate. If you lose they aren't.

My theory is that in summer the mags are close to accurate and we get beat by the competition. However, in winter we are the faster vehicles. I just want to know without a shadow of a doubt.

BTW. I own a 2014 SRT and my best time is 4.2 (allegedly)

Re: New Best 0-60 time last night.. 3.8 seconds

Thanks, everyone.

Well, I don't currently have any technology aboard other than the EVIC but I will say that acceleration at all gears and speeds is far better in the cold temps and on that particular pull, it ripped me back in my seat like never before. My best run before that was 4.4 at 70 degrees. I'll be making more runs in the coming cold temps for sure.

I know exactly what you are saying. It's finally starting to get colder in Texas and I can tell my SRT is wanting to rip axles off from the power. In track mode it just feels to easy and very hard to push her to the limits. I had 3 good size buddies of mine on a road trip to Wisconsin from Dallas for a Packers game and they are amazed how 100mph felt and sounded like 45mph. These are beasts will cold air temps!

Re: New Best 0-60 time last night.. 3.8 seconds

I trust the EVIC performance timer about as much as I trust its mpg calculations. Good enough for comparing one run to another, and maybe amongst friends here, but precision timer or substitute for a track slip it is not.

Before you flog me, my best time according to EVIC is 0.9 seconds. BOOM!

Still, it's a lot of fun to play with.

Re: New Best 0-60 time last night.. 3.8 seconds

You guys are exactly right...I don't trust the evic completely either. Throw u a timer on the above video of my 3.7 0-60 run and see if you don't get better than 3.7 seconds. One of my coworkers tried it for an hour one day coming up consistently 3.55-3.6 seconds.

The other site had a guy hit the track in a '14 and concluded on 3-4 runs that the EVIC was .1 sec SLOWER consistently.

I pray this is true. Timeslips don't lie.

that's what it said from that same run. Not sure if its correct as Ive never ran another 1/8th mile on the evic timer. Im also not sure if I let up off the throttle before I got to the 1/8th mile.

Re: New Best 0-60 time last night.. 3.8 seconds

Forzas pro charged jeep just went 7.4 in the 1/8 mile with a 11.7 1/4 down in Florida I'm a believer that the 14 could crack a 3.9 0-60 but a 7.4 in the 1/8 is a bit much I feel. It is what it is as that's what the evic said but something has to be off
