Zero to 60 mph times

I have been consistently getting 0-60 times in the 4.6 to 4.8 sec range when in sport mode, but when I used track mode and the paddle shifters to control the shift points, I was able to get a 4.4 sec mark. Has anyone else been using track or sport mode with the paddle shifters with similar results?

The best I've got is 4.5, but I haven't tried with the paddle shifters, that was in sport automatic, will try with shifters tomorrow...The 8k miles is impressive...

Still breaking mine in. Did my first 0-60 pull. 5.8 seconds in track mode auto shifting. The roads were wet and spun all four tires.

4.4 is impressive!

Quick question. When using paddle shifters does it ever auto shift to the next gear. Like certain modes will and others won't, etc....?

The 8k miles are mostly highway, WI to IL, WI to TN, WI to CA. Not a lot of issues, but the Adaptive Cruise Control which I love has gotten loose and needs to be secured again as it is producing false positives with unnecessary brake warnings. The 0to60 times where on my SRT8 with the added weight of the hitch, and a 6'4" 225lb driver, and only 4 gal (i.e. 32lbs) of fuel.

I don't think it auto shifts, but I am not sure as I didn't keep it in gear to the red line. However, my understanding was that it would cut the fuel so that you didn't blow the engine, but would not auto shift out of the gear you were in.

4.3!

It woke up after a few miles.

Oh yeah, this was in sport mode for those that don't know what they are seeing on the dials. I let the transmission do the shifting unless it's around a corner, can't do as well as it does in a straight line.

Awesome time! Once we get some tuning I can see some 4.0's or less easy IMO. I gain 0.75 second on my WK1 with just a CMR tune on 0-60.

Impressive times! Its looking like the WK2 might actually be a little quicker than on average from 0-60 than the WK1’s. That was not to be expected IMO.
