Rather than test your 0-60, why not test your 50-80 time in 4th. I done this lastnight and got 8.00 seconds flat.

I can't see many people being able to beat this.

Why 80 when it goes all the way to 120MHP

interesting choice of time, surely 30-70 through the gears is a better test?

long gearing in my car so i wouldnt have a chance at doing that 50-80 time in 8 seconds.

Not sure why I done that time, just was bored lastnight driving about so decided to test it.

Try it anyway.

50mph in 3rd would be in my powerband, whereas in 4th the car would probably stall. (not quiet but you know what I mean)

I think this was the other reason why I done that time, as mine in 4th @ 50mph seemed like it pulls the best.

see that would be due to you being at 3000rpm = full boost.

Yes, I knew I should have put a disclaimer after my last comment.

i.e This need not apply to James Hans, Andy Stocker, Ross Thomson, Rob Hagger, 2.0 16v Turbo Corsa's.

You should have no trouble with the task in hand, you need not pull away.

I made it nice and simple for you sweet.

Fair enough mate, will give it a try on the way home, see what the 1598cc's of raw standard power can give!!!
