    Quite simply, no. How is this possible? Because you selectively glossed over post #52.

    Torque is only part of the equation. I've used this analogy a million times on this forum, but the 2011 m3 and the 2011 5.0 run virtually identical 1/4 times but the M3 is down 100 ft/lbs of torque.

    Lol, yes, at least the m3 and 5.0 are remotely the same car.

    Had a similar discussion with a fellow member on this forum. He disagreed with me and actually referred to the dct as gimmicky and was very adamant that his 18gt shifts much faster than the dct. But what do I know? (I also have personal experience in the a10 and numerous dct’s). I think the dct is amazing. Just hope it holds the power that some, not most, people will want to take it to.

    Ive got a full excel calculator to show the cars performance, and allows you to adjust shift times. id post a pic, but you are 100% correct already.

    I'm too lazy to link but Wiki article cited ZF website and states 200ms shifts for the 8HP. Still the DCT shifts more than twice as fast and a tenth of a second each shift is a huge advantage. That advantage may be short-lived though as ZF makes an 8-speed DCT and I wouldn't put it past FCA to reach for it in a model year or two. They never sit still when Ford does something. They're almost desperate about it.

    From the supposed leaks the car is going to weight about 4,200+ pounds. It’s probably not as fast as one would think in a straight line due to the weight. With 797 HP you would think the HCR would be a faster car than it is but it’s so heavy. Cars are getting so heavy now. I predict about 130 in the 1/4 mile. The track package will probably have all sorts of aero which will slow it down.

    Whatever, you're just upset or you wouldn't be here.

    With respect to everyone's opinions... as carroll himself said

    Horsepower sells cars, TQ wins races.

    Traction not being an issue,(the point most are making here) it is TQ that gets the car accelerating and down the track.

    Those numbers are not even official yet, just a baseline as of now. It could do sub 3 seconds who knows.

    No it doesn’t. It’s 2.3, which is because of it DR tires and drag set up. Incidentally is very close the to same time it takes the 16/18 CJ to cover 60 mph.
    Put a slick on the z06 I bet it’s close to 2.3 as well.
