    Do we know if the 760/625 rating for the engine is SAE certified? The Trinity engine when the 13/14 Shelby was announced the 662/631 rating was SAE certified.

    And this is why dct is beneficial, tighter faster shifts and better gearing

    Also, according to FB group posts i saw in HRE groups, fastest stock tune ( but with a DR of course) is 10.62, dont recall mph. So to me, 500, on a DR needs to and will, best that. Stock for stock anyway.

    Mph will always favor the 500, as most of my time is spent on Mexican highways since i dont like giving DSS anymore $$

    If you go to tremec online you can look up this trans with max tq capacity of 650 lbs. might be an issue for add ons

    If this car is going to weigh less than 4,000lbs they would have released it along with the horsepower and torque numbers. The fact that they are still silent on the weight is because it's going to weigh more than two tons.

    Anyone thinking this car has a chance in hell of being less than 4K is smoking crack.... Have you seen the size of the front steel brakes and calipers? They are huge... and even though they are two piece are surely HEAVY... coolers, dct, supercharger etc... 4200lbs starts looking possible.

    Ford couldn’t keep the full carbon fiber Ford GT below 3350lbs actual curb weight... even though they kept claiming a very light weight package. 3350 is about what a base C7 weighs.....

    We're getting off topic here, but "couldn't" and "didn't" are not the same thing. The GT was ~2900 lbs with fixed aero, but after experimenting with active aero they realized it was faster, so they abandoned the weight goal.

    Now, that being said I 100% agree that the GT500 is going to be heavy.

    Weight reveal will be via puzzle.

    That would be a joke to turn off customers. I'm pretty sure the HP puzzle irritated enough people.

    So you're saying order banks are open or you just are assuming when and what your dealer allocation will be?

    No , more TQ car makes the harder it is to launch on the street . it's a 5.2 motor with TVS blower , that's plenty TQ down low , it might even be too much . My last car and the current car both have DCT .My N/A R8 doesn't make shit for TQ , like 413tq at 6500rpms LOL. However it launches like mofo on the street for heaving no TQ down low 0-60mph in 2.5 sec . Supercharged R8s heaving a very hard time launching because they make too much TQ down low . I'd take a car with DCT that makes low TQ over the one that makes crazy crazy amount of TQ down low

    Gt500 will hook because it only needs to plant 625tq. Revving to 7500 helps a ton with launching. Moves the power and up.

    Rev a hellcat redeye to 7500 and we can talk about average tq and hp.

    As it sits the hellcat red eye runs very high 10’s in great conditions or mid 11’s on average. The gt500 will run mid to high 10’s in average to good conditions. The dct is a dramatic helper. Taking shift times from 300ms to 90-100ms means the dodge shifting 4 times has been unable to use its power as propulsion for 1200ms during that quarter mile. The gt500 experiences just 3 shifts at less than 100ms so that is .9 seconds of extra propulsion in a 400m race.

    .9 seconds is the difference of:

    14.9 vs 13.9
    13.9 vs 12.9
    12.9 vs 11.9
    10.9 vs 9.9
    9.9 vs 8.9

    Take anyone’s car on this site making 600whp manual or auto and put a dct in it. Car will drop almost 1 full second at the strip.

    Dct’s are impressive for winning races.

    It won’t take much to get a new base gt500 in the mid and low 9’s.

    Slicks, pulley, e85, tune (800-850whp) catless x and remove the cat back at the strip.

    Spray a 100 shot and you’ll have 8’s

    We now need to see a dyno chart of the engine making the 760/625, interested to see what rpm the hp and torque peak are at and also how much torque is available at let's say 2k & 3k rpm.
