    Default 0 - 60

    hello chaps ive came about this as i was discussing cars with one of the lads in work and he got on to 0 -60 and how cars preform etc, He's also arranging a day at the pod for a few lads from work and a few of his mates. Knowing i like cars etc he asked me down.

    So my questions are.....

    1. Whats the best way to have a good take off ie setting revs and clutch etc?

    2. Will a tuning box (caterman) increase my 0-60 time?

    i will need to get this right if i dont want total embarasment, tbh i dont think i have a chance in hell he owns a 07 plate Audi S3 but hey what the hell god loves a tryer

    thanks guys

    1. I find best launch is at peak torque in your rev range, balance the clutch just below biting point so you wont stall and dont need to hold the car on the handbrake
    2. YES!!

    If a Caterman 'increases' 0 - 60 times, why would anyone buy it?? This would mean the car is actually slower than standard. . . . . . . = me confused

    Do a Nutron and strip it of weight like the spare wheel and rear seat, drop an injector cleaner in the tank, I always find one of these gives a small boost.
