Re: So....just how fast you think this new 14' Jeep SRT really is?

Jeff was talking about running at 40 mph and then stepping on the throttle. With the 8 speed, you have more gears to keep you in the sweet spot. Meanwhile in the 5 speed, there is soft spot that your too high to down shift, but not high enough in the powerband.
I have yet to see anyone really running consistently at 13.0 in regular DA. I am seeing mostly 13.3 at 105 or 106 mphs.
I'm no expert though. I just think when the mags run it in the 1/4, it will run about a 12.9 in the press.
Will someone post a 12.5? I'm sure. Will someone post a 13.5...I'm sure.

Re: So....just how fast you think this new 14' Jeep SRT really is?

I don't think you are looking at any performance gains over the previous 5speed except for mileage.

Maybe you are looking at a few hundreds of a tenth here and there but it will all equal out in the end.

Running the quarter with no gas and everything taken out of the car along with you losing 50lbs would yield more notcieable results.

Its a wash. What does it do? Makes the car more liveable at all speeds and increases the perception you are going faster as shifts and response are more immediate.

Just put the damn Hellcat in already Giles - I mean really.

Now I need to know. It seems there is a lack of faith in the 8 Speed...

He did, it was just not caught by many.

I want to hear his memory of the EVIC

Media embargo applies to everyone I suppose

I wish I knew more about the launch control. If the new tranny will allow a 3K flash from the get go, unlike the old 5 speed and the torque nanny that kicks in if you powerbrake it at all, then we may be back to a 4.4 0-60 from the factory.

Re: So....just how fast you think this new 14' Jeep SRT really is?

Just watched a video on SRT"s website that had an engineer stating that 35mph to 75 will be 4 seconds quicker with the 8speed. 4 Seconds!! To those who think this 8sp won't be a huge improvement, you're kidding yourself.

I'm pretty sure he says "a full second". 4 seconds is a long time, the current model doesn't take that long even.
