Thread: 0-60 in under 5 seconds?

    Default 0-60 in under 5 seconds?

    Erm... I was watching this video of my car at Thunder Road.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrsgCx1YBhM

    It shows my VXR accellerating from a standing start through the gears and I noticed the seconds ticking away at the bottom.

    I know its not exact, but do you think I read this correctly, in that my car seems to get to the end of 2nd gear in just 5 seconds !!.. (TURN UP THE SOUND TO FULL BLAST)

    2nd gear = 75 mph in my car.

    I've never done a 0-60 in mine, so wonder if its 5 seconds or less now?

    I wouldn't say you were far from being correct. What were the Insignia VXR figures for 0-60mph? Wasn't that very near 5 seconds and what with the Vectra weighing less than them? Also, quite quick given that you were on a wet track too. In the video with MAF's VXR, it sounds like your car is wheel spinning later on in higher gears when the camera turns to the rear.

    Clutch slip. Was having big problems on the day with the clutch. So only able to use half throttle most of the time.

    Getting it fixed at the moment (and some other power tweaks) for 100% full power next time

    I'm having a custom clutch build early next month. Already spoken to them and its game on. Will keep you posted but I will be retaining a DMF for comfort and safety

    In one video you can hear the exhaust 'pop' at 140 mph when I changed into 5th gear. Amongst all the other wind and road noise it was quite loud in the cabin as I remember hearing it distinctly

    Crazy
