Ok not that it really matters, but what are the true 0-60 and 1/4 mile times ? From doin research I found a range of base: 6.7 - 7.7 and 14.9 - 15.8. GXP: 5.2 -6.1 and 13.9 - 14.5.

Car and driver managed to get the base to 6.7 0-60 when they tested it with the miata. On the other hand motortrend managed only 7.7 0-60 on the first drive. They tested again and got 7.4. Why such a wide range of numbers?

Ah, maybe because cars vary, people vary and environmental conditions vary?

Do a search, there are a couple threads with trap tapes posted. Hell, we have one forum member that managed to crack past 14 in the 1/4 with an N/A. :bow: Granted, he had modded and lightened, but he never put forced induction on.

Oops, sorry, those are my Fiero times.....;)

Using my Dashawk I have seen 4.6 0-60 times pretty consistently but my car is far from stock. The big advantage I and many others have is the tune bumped up the red line so we hit 60 in second, knocks of a bunch of time when you don't have to shift to third.

Never done the 1/4 more interested in corners than straight lines.

I ran with a 06 dodge charger R/T today and I lost of coarse but I didn't lose that bad! I was on his rear tire all the way to 60mph when we shut down. I have the base and the reason for me actually asking was because I didn't want to get dusted by my nieces mustang v6 vert! Talking about being embarrassing! I'm not a racer! I'm more show/ beauty of the car than trying to kill someone on the road! The Sols is a crazy fun car! If you can't tell, YES I'm a NOOb!

The fact you could hang with the R/T at all, being an N/A; just says something about the
Charger. Charger = just another pig heavy soccer mom grocery getter........

In any car that is remotely fast, 0-60 is a horrible weight measure anything. It's all dependent on the tires.

With my rx7 my 0-60 could probably vary 3 seconds just based on my tire selection.

Based on personal experience, you will be able to run neck and neck with an entry level Charger of that same year.

Yes, aside from LS3 power, you need to get it to the road. I imagine there would be some sticky tires involved!
