My old car...the black and yellow one...was around the 3.7 secs.

347 rwhp, and the car weighed 1,050 k.g. ( without me in it, and a third of a tank of fuel.)

Hard to measure sometimes...the usual problem was getting the car to hook up.

Plenty of the cars have the grunt, but wheel spin usually cruels it.

And if it hooks up really well...ya get to break stuff...gear boxes, axles etc.

Aren't they great ??

Cheers,
Warren.

If i ever get my gps data logger from Bloody Hong Kong i will be able to tell you, But even with 12" slicks once boost hits it still turns them into smoke. I know how fast it goes from 160-0 km's when its on fire real quick. even faster was me getting out of it.

Don't know what to 100, but mine did 0-174 in 5.9 seconds up at Willowbank on the one time I took it for a run. That was on pure street tyres. At the half track point on a dragstrip, most tracks record speed so it's an accurate option to a stop watch.

Oz - you and Denis are fighting it out for the Best Smokeshow on a Racetrack Award...!

I've heard about an iPhone app that is very accurate at timing and logging acceleration.

that sounds quick, what was your elapsed time over the 400 and top speed.
