So i was looking around and found an SRT4 page at Supercars.net. See we all knew the car has 215hp but that as we already know well is 215whp.Now supposing you do some calculations you get this:

$19,995 / 2870lbs = 6.97lbs/dollar

215whp / 2870lbs = 13.35lb/whp.
245wt /2870lbs = 11.71lb/wt.

215whp / 2.4L = 89.58whp/liter
245wt / 2.4L = 102.08wt/liter

Now the one that stumped me was this:

0-60 in 5.8 sec (according to them)
0-100 in 13.8 <<< (look here)
1/4 mile in 14.2 at 99.5mph << (look here)


just some food for thought :wink:

That is odd. You'd think if it could go 0-100 in 13.8, that they'd do the quarter mile faster than 14.2 seconds @ 99.5mph

well i watched Raptor post a 14.0 at 100mph so go figure...i honestly think if you use solid mounts and get a good launch...13.6-13.9 is possible in a stock SRT-4...flame on but i feel good enough about what i just said to post it...you can hold me to it too

Mounts

I'll be the tester for the mounts, but I don't know how much longer i can stay stock :D How much do they cost to get them installed? and don't the add a harsher ride?

0-100 is measured with a device that measures actual speed and time. When the car reaches 100 mph, the timer stops.

14.2 @99.5mph is measured with dragstrip timing equipment. The mph is a calculation over a short distance at the end of the dragstrip (distance/time) and if the car is accelerating the entire time, it will create a lower number than the instantaneous velocity at the 1/4mile mark.

If the mph timer at the dragstrip starts when the car is at, pulling a number out of my butt, 13.5 seconds (less than 100 mph), and it crosses the 1/4 mile mark at 14.2 seconds in excess of 100 mph, the average could work out to 99.5 mph over that distance.

If figuring that out isn't confusing, you should try running some time-speed-distance rallies. Stop signs and changes in prescribed speed make it awfully difficult to remain within 1 hundredth of a minute of the calculated time at all places in the rally.

You learn something every day.

I agree that we will see some sub 14 quarters from stock cars. Not sure if it will get below 13.90.
