that would be a question for "Heminator"

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.

2011 with 4000 miles. First attempt, Power braked to 2000 rpm, let off brake and floored throttle. Tires spun with traction control on. 4.8sec run.
Did not use auto stick.

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.

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.

does anyone try letting off the gas a bit when the car shifts into 2nd?

i just held my foot down on both of my 0-60 attempts...one time the car stuck and the 2nd time it spun badly into 2nd
(ESP on both attempts-no auto stick)

Pulled a 4.31 last night on my way home in the cool 55 degree night air

ESP on, horrible launch (tried to launch at around 1800, I think the ESP kicked in and I bogged badly off the line)

Can't wait to see what this car can do once I learn to launch this 6 speed properly

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.....
