Without getting into a technical shootout, as long as the vehicle has a timer, which our does, the timer and accelerometer can calculate 0-60 times without the use of the wheel speed sensors. GPS is another way that it could be done.Please understand an accellerometer only measures relative g's. Not speed!
Umm...4.3 w/ lots of wheelspin??? So you got a tune, but w/ 576hp readings, did you happen to drop a s/c in recently???Just tried this on cold roads. 4.3 with lots of wheelspin, despite trying to feather it. My EVIC hp #'s also read pretty high (576). While I realize these numbers don't mean squat in and by themselves, I really think Johan has my car tuned strong. I'm looking forward to the track in the spring.
Yup, and I made sure I wasn't spinning all the way up. Car spun in 1st of course, so i feathered it, then buried it at the top of first, spun in 2nd and then hooked.Umm...4.3 w/ lots of wheelspin??? So you got a tune, but w/ 576hp readings, did you happen to drop a s/c in recently???
Haha, when I said yup, I meant I clocked a 4.3 today with wheelspin. No S/C here yet. But you're right, I do want to get one, and when I do it will be with HHP!!Ahhhh...that's right! You were the one that said you had a date w/ HHP Racing in DE to drop the s/c in, yeah? Did you go Magnuson or Procharger? Sure wish Edelbrock was on this side of the world!!! :32:
Oops! I got it now!!! (Was kinda wondering why I didn't see a new thread from you about what Santa got you for Christmas! lol) Well, keep us updated!Haha, when I said yup, I meant I clocked a 4.3 today with wheelspin. No S/C here yet. But you're right, I do want to get one, and when I do it will be with HHP!!
If you're in the lower 4's with your mods in your sig then I need to get me some of those plugs! lol...I am in the lower 4's which is great for a 300c I have yet to retest after the suspension should be a little better...I never leave home without my valentine 1 saved me from many tickets...
That's FREAKING AMAZING! I couldn't break 5.0s when I first got mine... Best "official" time clocked was 4.8 or something like that... AND you had three people in the car??? Are you using launch control when you get these times? If so, try it w/o launch control and see how well you do and let me know...got all my times w/o using it. I do know the other night, I was pulling from this '12+ M6 (yep, Bimmer); he couldn't seem to take me off the line or from ~40mph roll... I would creep away, but then he would inch back into it after his turbos kicked in @ around 100mph+ (I'd shut it down after that 'cause there's really not enough room on the road and he'd start to slowly gain...lol. Bimmers are expertly engineered for high end speed...gotta give 'em that!). Felt kinda good that I could hang w/ him so long though, being that he has me by about 90hp and ~200lbs lighter. Anyway, point is, I think the SRT is starting to break-in really well now. I should try some more runs...which reminds me, I need to check my SRT pages for what kind of times I was logging vs the M6...2014 srt-8 with 800 miles, my best is 4.5 leaving easy with 3 people in the car. 100% stock
FYI - I entered the numbers for my best time slip with my SRT8 and the Wallace Racing calculator says my 0-60 time is 4.1 seconds (sounds about right). According to the calculator, the 0-60 time for my Shelby GT500 is 3.25 seconds. I find the 3.25 second time hard to believe because of my somewhat soft launch and traction limitation, but it does hit 60 mph in first gear so it may not be too far off.Is it? If it's anything like the mileage readout it is close, but hardly accurate. Plus it can be fudged so many ways, like just wheelspinning in the wet, etc.
I used my best quarter mile timeslip and Wallace racing's calculator to determine my best 0-60 time. Much more realistic and believable.
