I ran this last night with the hot and humid Georgia air with nothing more than a CAI and Blastin Bobs....not too shabby with a solid one piece 22

Me - it's a physical fact that they do. As has bee said - just think how proud you might have been..... :smoke:

Not really a "reality check" but more of a slight "reality nudge"...

That 4.66 was determined by the EVIC... the same EVIC that is known to occasionally (under the right circumstances) continue to count down MPG after the engine has been turned off.

Just saying...

You guys keep talkin smack on 22's. I'll be the first LX in the 11s on 22s......And I'll take a .03 second hit to 60, and a .03 second hit in the quarter to look as damn sexxy as I look on my 22s while doing it.......I'll take speed and sex appeal both, thank you, thank you very much.
This is crazy. I haven't posted on here in weeks, just because of the drama this site has from time to time. I found an SRT Owners Club forum to go to instead. But tonite I thought, ya know what, lemme see what's going on over in ChargerForums, maybe things are different. But nope. A good guy gets excited about an achievement, and all you bastards wanna do is bring him down. Just reassurance this forum has turned into an immature gathering of stupid people trying to prove what they know.....or don't know. I don't understand why everyone on here has to be better or smarter than the next guy? Why can't you just be happy for the guy????? Ridiculous!!!! Congrats on the time ATL SRT!!!!!!!

Next time somebody does a mod on a 5.7, I'm gonna say:
"Man, imagine how proud you'd be if you had a 6.1 or a 426!"

Man, I wasn't going to say anything... To each their own. I was just reading posts, and you're the one that came across as immature and stupid... So way to lower the intelligence of everyone involved, myself included for responding to this.

Alright, alright, keep your knickers on!

The question was asked by the OP "Who says 22's slow you down?"

I answered that I did.

Sorry - am I not allowed to DARE stand behind the fact that heavier wheels will indeed slow the acceleration of a vehicle? Should I not have answered the statement that was posted on a public forum - just so that the more sensitive forum members don't get their knickers in a twist?

Now - what I should have said was that if the 22's were actually 'lighter' than the originals, then their won't be so much of an issue, other than the greater mass of the wheel being a little further from the hub - which also has a performance sapping effect.

Seriously - I had to read your post twice as I couldn't believe you threw a wobbly over what was said in this thread!

Dang - I really don't think CF is for you if this is all it takes for your blood to boil. Have fun on the other forums - hope nobody there ever has a difference of opinion - you'll be a Hobo on the net - looking for that perfect site! :smoke:

Caio!

I just had another thought on the strangeness of your reply.

I really think your issue is with the people that post what could be considered as erroneous information in the first place, which results in there being a requirement for replies that question the validity of those claims, or a statement. Surely, for the good of everybody, if somebody has a theory that changes the laws of physics, then they should be corrected? Or should we all just live in ignorance, so that there is never any discussion, or disagreement, which might offend?

So - my conclusion is that your real frustration MUST be directed towards those that post bizarre, or ill-informed info - rather than those who spend their free time trying to keep people informed of the 'real world' - not the fantasy world some seem to live in.

I feel better now.

And? What's wrong with that?

If somebody had posted "Who said that my 5.7 would be slower than a 6.1 on the 1/4 mile", your response would be reasonable! LOL

Hope you've either been drinking, or just had a bad day......:confused:

And the whole putting the name after the post is annoying to.

why are you so butt hurt about it? IT IS A FACT MORON, IS PURE PHYSICS IGNORANT.

Read And Learn:

Rotational Inertia (or Momentum)

Rotational inertia is a concept a bit more difficult to deal with than unsprung weight. Inertia can be thought of as why a car wants to keep rolling once moving, or remain in place once stopped (unless you forget to set the parking brake on that hill). I believe the terms momentum and inertia are interchangeable. The term “flywheel effect” also refers to these concepts. In a car, there are a number of rotating masses which require energy to accelerate. Up front, ignoring the internal engine components like the crankshaft, we have to worry about the flywheel, clutch assembly, gears, axles, brake rotors and wheel/tire. Out back its a little simpler (for FWD) with just the brakes and wheel/tire contributing most of the mass.

The more mass an object has, the more energy it takes to accelerate it. To accelerate a rolling object such as a wheel, you must both accelerate its mass plus overcome its rotational inertia. As for braking, you must overcome its rotational inertia plus decelerate its mass. By reducing the weight of the vehicle's rotational mass, lightweight wheels provide more responsive acceleration and braking.

Before continuing with our informal analysis here, I want to point out something very important about rotational inertia. We’ve all seen the ice skating move where the skater starts spinning. She pulls her arms in and speeds up, then extends them again and slows down. Why is this? Well, the further a mass is from the center of rotation, the faster it must travel for a given angular speed (how many degrees of an arc it traverses per time unit). The faster anything moves, the more energy it has, so when the arms are pulled in, conservation of energy says that the rotation rate must increase due to equal energy being applied to the same mass over a smaller diameter. Applying this to wheels and tires, which have most of their mass spread as far as possible from the rotation center, I think you’ll agree that it naturally takes more energy to accelerate them. Example: Take a two identical masses, but one is a solid disk of diameter D, the other is a ring of diameter 2D. The ring will require more force to accelerate it (in a rotational manner). Therefore a heavier rim with a smaller diameter could have less rotational mass than a lighter rim of a larger size, and accelerate faster with the same force applied.

The effect of rotating mass can be calculated using Moment of Inertia (MOI). MoI is related to not only the mass of the rotating object, but the distribution of that mass around the rotational center. The further from the center, the higher the MoI. The higher the MoI, the more torque required to accelerate the object. The higher the acceleration, the higher the torque required.

Because of this, the weight of rotating mass such as wheels and tires on a car have a bigger effect on acceleration than static weight such as on the chassis on a car. When purchasing new wheels and tires for a performance car, it can be useful to compare the effects of different wheel and tire combinations. This is especially true when considering upgrading to larger wheels or tires on a car.

The use of light-weight alloys in wheels reduces rotational mass. This means that less energy will be required to accelerate the wheel. Given that each pound of rotational mass lost provides an equivalent performance gain as a 10 pound reduction in vehicle weight, the benefits of light alloy wheels on vehicle performance cannot be overlooked.
For example:
***A reduction in the weight of the rim/tire assembly of 5lbs x 4 (all around the car) is equivalent to a 200lb weight reduction in vehicle weight (thats worth 0.200 in the 1/4 mile)***

So What's the Point?

The point of this discussion is as follows: There is a great deal of rotational mass to deal with in a car and tires and wheels may only make up half of it. Estimates for weight (o.k. for comparison since they’re all in the same gravity field, therefore the mass would be a similar ratio)
Front: Rear:
Wheel/tire: 30-35 lbs each 30-35 lbs each
Flywheel: 15-20 lbs
Clutch: 15 lbs
Halfshafts: 7-10 lbs each
Gears: 5-7 lbs
Rotors: 3-5 lbs 3-5 lbs
Misc: 3-5 lbs 3-5 lbs
------------------------------------------------------------------
Total: 115-148 lbs 76-90 lbs

So a couple pounds here and there on wheels and tires will make a difference, but that difference is magnified because that weight is placed further from the axis of rotation than any other mentioned (remember the ice skater). All these masses must be accelerated, so any reduction is a good thing. Now you know why we always say don't get those 18" rims for your civic. Not only are the heavier, they have a larger overall diameter. Even with lower profile tires, most plus sizing leaves us with a slightly larger wheel.
