    I have stock auto Challenger Hellcat.

    My best 0-60 is 4.0.

    That's with all default settings.

    How can I get 3.5 or better?

    Practice....and then more practice...You want to roll into the throttle only as fast as you can w/o breaking traction....hard to do with street tires on the street...watch you don't get a false low reading caused by excessive tire spin...rear tires can get up to 60mph in less than 2 seconds while the car is only doing 20mph....

    Lower the pressure in your rear tires to about 25lbs...turn off traction control....hold brake and bring rpms to about 1,000rpm....release brake quickly as PCM will pull timing if engine is under load and not moving..

    4.0 is not bad though...

    All grip and no slip, that's the name of the game. I bet we start seeing 3.0 and less this year with just changing wheels and rubber. IMHO
