Hi,
I have 2019 Scatpack widebody. With the 4 season tires, its best 0-60 time is around 4.5-4.7 which is great, but yesterday after launch control, it showes clearly impossible time: 2.0!
Has anybody else similar issue? It means my timer is completly unrealible. Do you have any idea what to do? Software upgrade?

If you have wheel spin it will think you got to 60 quicker

I see, so it measures the acceleration of wheels, not the car itself. It is disappointing, that it is made like this. Thanks for info

They are pretty accurate, but just estimations in the long run

^ what he said. Reset it, do it again. Wheelspin causes the inaccurate lower not-believable results.

I’ve spun my wheels numerous times while playing around with my 0-60 times and I get an accurate time every time. I’ve never gotten a low time like that.

I think what it may be is if the wheel spin exceeds 60mph. If you keep in it and let it hit 3rd gear while spinning they could hit 60.

Yup! I agree with this. I don't know how he got that time with a newer car. I know the older cars could get there through "spinning" rather than actual speed but I don't think the newer cars work the same way. I know that just for the smoke show I've nailed a first second shift that sent the back wheels spinning to 60MPH+ and then just for grins stayed in the throttle anyway. I don't doubt the rear tires hit 60MPH in what is very likely a sub 3 second time frame yet it doesn't record that insanity. Actual 0-60 isn't captured until I get there with front wheel speed. The time it will record in this instance will be VERY SLOW and disappointing for obvious reasons. My best time recorded last summer with a good launch and shift was a 4.2 second 0-60MPH. The car seems capable of more but I haven't captured it and GOD knows that on the street with a manual consistency is tough. Traction and street surface limits everything. What I really need to do is take it to the Drag strip, slicks and then just slam gears with no lift shifts. A 4.2sec 0-60MPH on the street has got to be good for more on the drag strip, prepped and with the better rubber attached to back end of the car.
