IDK but this 0-60 I did today seems slow.


Opinions?

Ive never driven a hemi, but why were you starting in 3rd gear? I think the best way to test the 0-60 is either at the track or with a system hooked up to the obd. What did you think the 0-60 was on that test or whatever. Seven seconds? I thought you had a diablo tuner or whatever.

Looked to be right around six seconds.. I see nothing wrong except for that clanking noise at the beginning.

Because I had one hand on the wheel and one on the camera.


It seemed like 7 seconds. And yeah I have the diablo. So I'm like WTF.

I duno man but, put that sob in drive let the computer and diablo take care of it. Is the diablo even optimized to run in tow/haul or whatever and auto stick or whatever you were doin also?

Besides, on a side note, when i drove my friends 85 isuzu trooper a while back (5 speed, long-throw shifter and barely a clutch) launching it in anything other than first gear it dogged 10 times worse than it already did.

Hmmmmm. Tomorrow, I am going to do a 1st Gear Launch.



Fellow 5.7 owners, what do you think? Would I have had a better 0-60 with shifting through the gears myself?

Leave it in D.. 3rd gear in autostick is the bastard gear.. I'm sure the fellow 5.7 owners agree.

Leave it in D? Why?

Re: Does This Seem Slow To You?

mjl2610 07-11-2009 07:46 PM

Re: Does This Seem Slow To You?
 
Might i suggest a few??

*put her in drive and stomp on it
*autostick test from 1st gear (also no tow/haul)

Just straight up diablo magic :thumbsup:
