I know the handhelds such as Gtech aren't too accurate, but those 0-60 times are disappointing. When this car was first released, I read C&D got a 5.3 0-60. 6.1 to 6.4 is a BIG difference from 5.3. Very disappointing. Sorry to hear that.Dixietwister said:I have a Vericom Performance Computer, and went out to check the 0 to 60 times on the 300c. I just left it in drive and only did a light power brake for each run. Run #1 was a 6.32 Run #2 Failed due to engine stumble and nearly sutting off Run #3 was a 6.39 Run #4 and run #5 were the same at a 6.16 I am troubled that the engine stumbled so badly on that run. Also, between runs and at idle the engine stumbled and shut off. I looked at the computer readings on the dash and at the LAST CHIME REG it said Low Oil and VMM 319. Does anyone have an idea on what is causing the problem. My oil pressure is ok and I am using the correct oil. My oil level is good. Please let me know if you are having any of the same problems. Also after running it easy for a couple of days, the engine sounds like it is hitting the rev limiter before if shifts gears, if I max it in drive ( from a stop). Only does it the first time I max it out. Thanks for any help. Dixie
Bring the rear psi down to about 22 psi, pb to about 2800 rpms, then mash it(with ESP off).Dixietwister said:Well Guys, I've put on the Borla exhaust and have some updated 0 to 60 times. I made several runs, and the best time was a 5.70 sec run. The best times before the Borla were 6.16.You can spin the tires so easy, that you can really mess up a run ( if you light them up). I also found out that if you leave the ESP, on and come off hard, it will just about kill the engine. If you turn it off and come off hard, it lights up the tires, and kills the times. You can turn off the ESP and light the tires a little, and back off a bit, and then gag it, and you get good times (but not consistent). You can leave the ESP on and just floor it from about 1200RPM's and get just about the same times (probably more consistent, but doesn't sound as impressive). I have a lot of air in tires to help with the crown sensitivity, and that will hurt the times. With good rubber the times would be much more impressive. Also found out the the rough idle, that I have been getting, goes away if I use Premium gas. Doesn't seem to change the 0 to 60 times. Car also seems to be faster before the oil temp gets up, and the oil pressure begins to fall. Any comments welcome. Dixie
Hi Dixie,Dixietwister said:Oh, did race cars (drags, circle track, dirt, late model super stock, and motorcrossed) but that has nothing to do with wanting the most out of the much publicized Chrysler 300C HEMI.
