Anyhow, I found a link to this site > http://www.cars-cars-cars.org/0-60-Times-Calculator.htm , which lists a formula for calculating "0 to 60" times. Kinda interesting.

__I know it's not that exact__, But I ran the numbers for the 3.5L Charger. Note, I wasn't sure what the BHP (Brake Horsepower) was, so I used the 250hp that is listed by Dodge.

-----Values--------

"SE" and "SXT" weight = 3800 lbs.

So, 1 pounds = 0.45359237 kilograms, Therefore the weight =

**1723.65 kg's**

HorsePower=

**250 hp**(I don't know the Brake Horsepower (bhp))

-----"0 to 60" formula-------

weight of car in kilogrammes

0-60 time = ---------------------------

maximum bhp of car times 0.9

-------Results ---------------

So, 1723.65 kg's / (250hp x .9) = 7.66 for the "0 to 60" time calculation.

Anyhow, Like I said, it's not exact - but an interesting experiment. Some day, after a few more thousand miles, I may actually time my 3.5L Charger.

**NOTE:**I ran the numbers for the R/T and came up with 5.98 for the "0 to 60".
