Has anyone done this with GPS? The factory computer doesn't really count IMO. That's like people posting low 4s and 3s with a dashhawk. I want to see some real world GPS numbers to get an accurate idea of how these measure up to the Wk1.

Go here and put in your 1/8 mile et & mph from the track and it will give you your 0-60 time.

Why wouldn't the EVIC count? I've checked the digital speed to gps and they agree throughout various speeds. So assuming no wheel slip (awd )it should record an accurate number since the speedo is correct. I would say it's within 1/10 a second or better easily.

With a 25 gallon tank, a gallon weighs about 8 pounds so that is 200 pounds weighing down the Jeep or basically like driving with another person in the vehicle when the tank is full. When the fuel light comes on you have 3 gallons left or 24 pounds of fuel, that is when I usually get the better times.

4.8 on the EVIC with a full tank of gas. It seems to be getting quicker with more miles

Has anyone tried the method the srt engineers mentioned below:

- Switch to TRACK - Engage 1st gear (paddle or console shifter)

- Raise RPMs to around 1,000 but not more than 1,100

- Get your foot off the brake pedal as quickly as humanly possible to minimize brake drag, while obviously flooring the gas pedal at the same rate

- Keep a close eye on the tach, when the needle gets to 5,200, shift to 2nd gear

Using track mode, got 4.8 with me shifting, and 4.9 in auto. 975 miles on it and 74. Definitely gets faster with more miles. At first I was consistently getting 5.8's, then 5.3's around 500 miles, and now 4.8's. Cant wait for more miles......colder weather down here in south Florida........and a supercharger
