Talking 2016 SCrew 5.0 0-60 test

First off, I realize this isn't an officially certified test. I simply put my iPhone on stopwatch, and jammed it! The first test, I locked my 3.55 rear, by pulling out drive select ****, turned off the traction control. I gave it gas (about 2000 rpm's) and let loose. That result was 6.68. Next try, I unlocked the rear, and launched the same way. That result was 6.96. The third time, I selected Sport and kept the traction control off. Third time was a charm! Because I got 6 seconds even on that one. I figure, even with, plus or minus a half sec., for operator error, that's pretty fricken quick!
My tank was at half full, with Exxon 87 octane. Completely bone stock at 3773 miles. Color me happy with my Coyote!

And this is the exact moment I reached 60. Sorry for the blur, but it was taken off of the video I was recording.

If you can't quite read the times, it's 16-22.

Did you try it sport mode with traction control on and locked rear? Btw, how does traction control work in these trucks? Does it activate the rear brakes when the tires slip?

They make apps that you can start and just sit the phone in your cupholder, starts the timer when it feels the force or detects movement and stops when GPS reads 60pmh.

Could give you a more accurate reading by removing human relay response time.

No, I didn't, from the little knowledge I have of these trucks, I don't think it's very good for your truck to lock it on dry pavement. As far as your other question, someone else with a more technical knowledge should answer.

I'll try, but, that was pretty close to being dead on.

Yeah somewhere between 6.0 and 6.5 seems reasonable for a 3.55 5.0. Cool video!

I just wish someone would have tested the 3.73. Unofficially (using an app), I had a 6.5 with my 3.31. I would assume my 3.73 is around 5.8-6.1.
