0-60 (0-100)

Okay after my previous attempt of 15 seconds, i tested again with the same everything except on a diffferent road (less bumpy). I got it down to around 12-13 seconds. I have still yet to test with out all the excess crap but when i do ill let you know.

Re: 0-60 (0-100)

i checked my numbers on that calc and they are pretty accurate so you shouldnt be off by much.
but just a little advice for you to consider it takes alot of mods or serious mods to take a full 2 sec off an ET and you are starting with a 19 sec ET.
what do you expect to gain ?
i could get you a good motor and send it over to you if you foot the bill of course.
how does a 351w HO SVO sound with 380hp outta the box.
that would take a couple sec off your time.

Re: 0-60 (0-100)

but the thing is shouldnt i be around 17 seconds completely stock. I knw thething is getting old but still i reckon i can get down to 17 without even trying. I'm going to first dump as much wight as possible and see how i go.

Re: 0-60 (0-100)

personally i think maybe 18-19 sec is about right for your stock truck.
you already have 4.10 gears which is a great benefit in get up and go from a standing start.
you are dealing with a truck style that weighs over 2 tons.

Re: 0-60 (0-100)

i ran that calc on my specs from the dragrip time slip and my 0-60 is 8.02 sec.
so obviously i would easily be in the 7's with better gears and less tire spin.
but i think you have a long way to go before you even come close to that , being the steering wheel is on the right side and all.

Re: 0-60 (0-100)

Do you get much tire spin? i'm not to sure if i'll have traction problem when i take the weight of it. My rear wheels are already looking worn becuase someone took it out and started doing burnouts at a showground near my place.

Well anywho the exhaust is on its way, just have to find time to take the truck there. Going the 3 inch dual. What about electric fans? I'm going to keep an eye out for some. What size would i have to go? Most people ive heard go dual 16's. i guess id have to measure my rad.

Re: 0-60 (0-100)

right now with the big tires i dont have excessive tire spin but with the little stock sizes yea traction is a major issue.
i have had the tires break loose at around 40 mph already and start to go sideways.
thats always fun !
measure the rad and get the biggest electric that will fit because it will only run when it needs to anyway.

i have a single 16" but i had to put a 4 row alum rad in because i had overheating issues.

Re: 0-60 (0-100)

i also run ac without any trouble even on 90+ degree days.
but yes i recommend a dual fan setup.
not necessarily a dual 16 but what ever will fit because you will cover more rad surface with duals than even one big single.
