I didnt buy this truck to be the fastest car on the planet.....there is always someone faster BUT i ran it yesterday. Below freezing temperature, winters on, track mode with full traction off. dumped it, a bit of wheelspin and off she went. 0-60 in 4.4 seconds and quarter mile in 12.8 at 105. Dont know any wk1 that did that right off the showroom floor with 2500 miles. I still love the wk1 and indeed had two of them but this is the fastest Jeep I have had to date.

great numbers indeed. there are a few WK1's that ran that fast in warmer weather. cant remember who. the cold definitely plays a huge part. along with altitude. thats why when the reviews came out and it was 80 degrees they were getting terrible 0-60 times and 1/4 mile times. get sum pics next time!

cold def does play a role, but i have to admit so does the break in. ;) mine has woken up a bit...i recently hit 750miles. obviously still feels really slow compared to my WK1, but there's a good reason for that. lol

sorry, just to be clear, this was on the computer, not at the track. All tracks are closed here at this time. from what i have read the system is very accurate. Was also on a FULL tank of gas, me in the car (220lbs) and my oldest son (180lbs). I took pics on my phone but have NO clue how to post. I can email them to someone if they want.

Not that Dynolicious app is as good as actual track numbers, but I understand that it is very close. These are what I hit according to it last week but did not want to hear the "without a slip it don't count" so I held off on posting. 12.54 1/4 mile with 4.25 0-60

Hasn't the EVIC shown to be within a tenth or 2 of actual?

I wouldn't even try to claim that time...that's so far off, it's not funny. 115 mph ??????:confused:
There is no way you trap 115 mph, that's an 11 second run. I ran [email protected] mph using a 100 shot of nitrous......

As said in my earlier post:

I spent 4 years pit crewing for a super comp team, I am well aware of why it is important to have a slip. I was just sharing for the sake of sharing in a thread discussing non-track numbers. I have no doubt that at the track I will likely not see the 12's in stock form and will probably trap around 105. BUT since you pointed this out, as for trapping at 115 = an 11 second run? This may be the case for your car, but certainly not a blanket statement. It depends on where your car makes power, wheel spin, gearing the list goes on. Example, you will have a higher trap speed but lower ET if you spin for instance. Other examples, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo runs a 12.4 at 113 mph, the BMW X5M at 12.5 at 112 mph, Corvette at 12.6 at 115 and the Mustang GT500 runs a 12.4 at 117 mph.

Again, I was not claiming that mine is as fast or faster than anything other than itself so don't get your panties in a wad, the WK1 always has been and always will be far superior, but we won't discuss that here because you WK1 guys have a whole area to debate that right?

it's not a blanket statement... you were correct by saying this may be a the case for Phill's car...last time i checked this was a GCSRT8 fourm...so his statement pertains to what we all drive on here... we are not comparing track times of vettes and mustangs in this post...and i think we are all well aware for cars that run a higher trap speed that have around the same times...

again man I'm not raining on the OP's parade and i'm not a WK2 "hater" but what did u expect by making a title like that and leading us on:rolleyes:
