800 miles on the odometer & stock
1st ever use of launch control
4.4 secs

That's good enough for me... I'm away from the beast for a week while I travel across country (Las Vegas to NC). The beast will be missed.

Re: Sorry Scott.. your 0-60 record was bound to fall!

Curious as everyone's opinion of the ACTUAL engine power output in hot weather vs cold.

My theory is that here is no way 470hp can propel 5200+lbs 0-60 in the low 4.X seconds.

I think the engines are performing per spec at "normal" 70-90 degree weather and are over performing when colder temps are present. Maybe 500-525hp in the lower 30-50 degree temps which seems more explainable for the low 4 second sprints.

Ok i have been out 2 times at the drag strip in diff weather with a bone stock 2012 and the race wt was 5492lbs.
1st time in feb the temp was 55 degrees and at the track my 0/60 was 4.3. Gas was 91 octane.
2nd time in june the temp was 89 degrees and at the track my 0/60 was 4.4. Gas was 98 octane.

From what I've read in this and other threads, the WK2 SRT is capable of running 0-60 in the 4 second range regardless of temperature. Of course colder is better but moderate temps (55-79 degrees F) don't seem to adversely affect performance too much.

Stock except for the Borla S. Any naturally aspirated engine will do better in cold weather. Heat amd humidity robs power obviously.

I am consistently under 4 seconds no matter the weather. My problem now is losing some traction. My last two saturdays off were planned track days...unfortunately it rained both days
