Factory 0-60 Evo times, true, or exaggerated ?

Firstly, I'm not a 0-60 person, just want to clear that up

But as title really, has anyone ever tested their standard Evo at this?? Reason I'm asking, I came across a site and it says the IX MR 360 does it in 3.9 secs which to me seems very quick? Also a stock TME ( none RED) does it in 4.4, again, they seem a bit inflated to me??

Of course, I could be totally wrong in this but it must take NO mechanical sympathy what so ever??

I'm sure Aidy will have some input on this


Pete.

To be fair pete i honestly cant see most 10 to 16 year old cars doing the manufacturer's figures as standard, you could probably knock off a second or two nowadays

Are there any standard ones left though? . Tyre technology has advanced a lot since these first came out too...

When these times are taken, not just with the Evo, all cars especially performance cars are treated like absolute ****, no care or sympathy to try to get the best that can be achieved. As owners of the Evo, or any car, we will never achieve these figures.

Agreed. I have never launched my Evo, nor will I.
I have too much mechanical sympathy, although I don't mind grabbing it by the scruff of the neck when moving ;-)

Don't Evo owners test their cars with Race logic performance box or similar?. GTR forum has a sticky thread of 0-60 & 0-100 times for GTRs of different spec.

In some cases 0 to 60 times can be quicker than actually stated, ive seen it for my self, so nobody will convince me otherwise.

No one bothers with that any more mate
0-100 mph is better
Just watched new Porsche 911 turbo s do 0-100 mph in 6 dead and 1/4 in 10.5
Fantastic stock car ,, video on evo magazine site

I always thought the 0-60 times were on bugger all fuel and on an RR for no drag ? It's relevant to other manufacturers as they are all colourful with the truth

Get it wrong with a manual Evo, it can cost you a clutch. Fine if you don't give a ****, want to be pointless and have money to throw away for abusing your car.
The GT-R is easy as it does it all for you.

Seen that before myself with the Ralliart Sportback I had. Was much quicker than stated by the manufacturer.

At 400 bhp and similar torque, I pulled a 3.9 second 0-60 mph as per Racelogic and 9. something 0-100 mph.

I wouldn't be surprised if you could achieve quoted standard figures if you absolutely nailed the launch.

TME's are 4.3 second anyway. I bet with that much wax you could shave a tenth of that!
