    0 - 60 Test

    I tried my 0 - 60 last night. It wasnt under pefect conditions of course and I probably should thrash it more so I did it in about 13 secs. Vauxhalls figure is 10.5.

    what is your experience with rough tests of 0 - 60?

    Please give the Vauxhall figure along with any results! cheers

    I never bothered trying in the coupe turbo lol but on my 1.4 mk4 astra I used to be able to get late 8 seconds...... But that was because the speedo was out by miles, because I had low profile tyres on 15" alloys lol, soon as I realised that and got the correct size wheel & tyre a more realistic time was set of 9.5 seconds or 10.5 seconds, because I was using the speedo to judge and usually it's around 3/4 mph off anyway

    I have link of a video somewhere... But on The ipodtouch ATM so can't find it very well lol

    EDIT:

    On pc now and found the video!

    using the speedo you'd be best iming yourself to 65mph......manufacturers figures are generally optimistic as its a selling point and measured under perfect conditions......you'll need a 1.8 16v or 1.9cdti or more to get under 10 seconds realistically

    my best is 5.29 seconds, monitered on a dash hawk.near perfect conditions

    on the road id think a more realistic target is 5.9-6.0 seconds, by the time it wheel spins etc. 60-100mph is more inportant to me than my 0-60mpg time though

    My old VXR, book figures 6.2 seconds, I did a flat 6 with 4 people in, and using a mate's computer software, ran a 5.8s
    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
