Default My 0-60 time

So I went out tonight and ran a few 0-60 runs. My only mods are a K&N drop in filter, magnaflow 14" with a hemifever 91 tune.

My average was 6.4 seconds after several runs.

My truck is a 4x4 crew cab with 3.55 gears and 305/55/20 cooper zeons, heavy tires.

Is this ok?

I think that is good especially since you have the 3.55's. I have the same mods, but with the 3.92's average just over 6.2.

Not too bad for a Crew,

My Reg Cab 4x4 (about -400lbs lighter), is right around 5.0 seconds
also running heavy stock 20's and 305/50R20 Terra Grapplers
...same crappy 3.55 gears

Nothing beats a good Torque Converter for getting a good launch.

I'm running about the same, 2wd qc w/ 305/45-22s and 3.55's. I wouldn't take the DS times as gospel, more like a good guesstimation. Take it to the track if you really want to know what it will do.

LOL, I believe I have that covered bud , the local track is my second home
I've had over 200 passes over the past three years
60 foot times in the 1.8's no problem

I launch in AWD (4WD Auto) so there is no tire spin, my Diablo numbers all check out fine compared to my track slips.









First 13 sec slip from 2 years ago, before I swapped in a 3000 stall Edge TC (2500' DA)




after 3k Stall ....1.8's



1.874 second 60 footer Works out to a 5.01 0-60 on this 1/8th mile to 0-60 calculator

Sigh I hate El paso. my qc 4x4 can barely hit 7.5 with Just about every bolt on available. tuner, vararam, fastman tb, 180stat, jba headers, magnaflow y-pipe and cat-back and most recently a qtp cutout. Granted I am working on working out the tweaks in my tune.

The times on the Trinity display are on Grapplers , track slips on Drag Radials.
bet she'll hit high 4's on my DR's in 4wd full throttle launch if it hooks well on good pavement.

I cant stress enough how important a good Torque Converter is for cutting your 0-60 times (mines a 3000)
But then traction becomes a major issue unless you have sticky tires and smooth hot pavement.

If I dont have my truck in AWD mode (4-auto) this is what often happens when I try to launch at full throttle:
