    everything ive seen giving track times is always an automatoc

    11.2 1/4 mile
    3.7 0-60

    what about the manual? is it .4tenths slower like the 392 manual?

    also what is the max mph in 1st for the auto and the manual? (did they set the manual up for 60+ mph in 1st like the zr1 and gt500)

    if the manual is 0-60 in 4.3 that makes it a tie for a 392 automatic

    because i havent seen anything from Dodge on this im thinking it may be true

    from what ive seen in the videos, yea 60 easy in first.. first in the manual is almost the same as third in the Auto.. but the auto will be launching from second.. and i think the hellcats have slightly different gear ratios from the other hemi trannys

    There seems to be a serious embargo on info regarding times and the manual trans. I'm like everyone else on this forum and try and find every bit of info I can regarding the cars.
    The fastest time I've seen posted for the manual was 11.7@125 with a start in 2nd gear. That was on the stock summer tires. I would imagine with a GOOD driver and real tires very low 11's would be the norm
    Most testers are getting very low 12 second slips.
    First gear tops out at 60 mph. The final drive with the manual is 3:70

    going to be hard to beat the A8 with its programing and extra gears.

    times will drop once guys figure them out and get some sticky tires

    I got my Viper times way down, it used to spin the tires, you just need to repeat and get the feel of it.

    Would take a miracle for the manual trans equipped car to be faster than the 8 speed auto at a dragstrip IMO.

    I was referring to the manual 6 speed time he said at 11.7 in the 1/4

    I have only seen 1 manual time and it was horrendous at 12.8 @ 118 if I remember correctly.
    I need some hope that someone has gotten the manual into the 11's...lol

    Whoops, didn't catch that.. sorry. I personally have never seen an 11.7 posted for manual. I've barely seen ANYTHING posted for manual. :(

    There is still ZERO info after all this time.
    SRT still aint talkin either.
    And no owner has taken a 6 speed to the track to shake it out...disappointing.

    Yes, 60 is not a problem in first gear. :)

    I just read an article from Car and Driver... they tested an A8 and M6... 11.7 for the A8 vs 11.9 for the M6, both at 124-25 mph... 0-60 came in 3.6 for the A8 vs 3.9 for the M6... Ill link the article here when I get a chance...
