I only did 2 runs. The first the back end just cut loose from a stand still with ESP on and did like 5.1
The second, I rolled about 10 feet and punched it. 4.64
Both with AUTO STICK and I shifted myself (to 2nd) at about 5900 rpm. (give or take)
I didn't want to redline it. 1900 miles on odo
It's ok & actually helps to break-in the rings to redline (engine at operating temp of coarse) when new but not for very long....... back to launch
Try staging at 1200-1500rpms in auto stick, ESP on, let off brake then ease the gas peddle to 1/2 position without spinning the tires then floor at a rate that does not spin the tires if possible and let the auto do the shifting then post the results.
It may seem like a soft start but you lose less time than you do when you are spinning your wheels.
OK with 6 spd. I have had 4 0-60s that I would count 4.64, 4.80. 4.85. 4.92 It all depends on my start and how much wheel spin in 2nd. Some other times all below 4 seconds are nonsense, because of 2nd gear wheel spin. I think with stickier tires, I have Eagle RS-As not F1s, I could get 4.5s. But I dont want to test it too much, I am satisfied by its seat of pants acceleration, it is better than my 6.1 had.
What is ESP, and how do you turn it on and off ? #0977 W/Auto and Bone Stock, and learning what this Electronic stuff is, and how to use it ! Thanks for any help, bear with me I'm old !.............John
John, ESP (Electronic Stability Program) is the traction control system. The default is ON. There is a switch in the center stack that is labeled ESP OFF. Press it and it disengages the traction control. Press it and hold for 6-8 seconds (it will ding) and you will disengage the traction control and the Brake assist (BAS). You can use this to engage in more spirited driving. Control of your car, however, is now entirely up to you.
Have been breaking in my IE 392 #862 across the RPM range for the last month. Currently have 300 miles on it and just had to see what she could truly do and here are the numbers: Temp=85 degrees, Surface=New asphalt, Humidity=45%, warm up drive across city. Results: loss of grip in rear end in first but grabbed in 2nd and thrid was blistering:0-60.....3.64 sec! Seriously! See the attached "BEST TIME" pic!!!
Sounds good; I will try and post a pic later, but I managed 3.74s, with a passenger.......this is all according to the onboard system, which is probably a bit off, but still impressive.....
