Evic pic thread

Thought I would start this thread for pics of performance, mpg, etc...anything interesting you see on the EVIC

To start here is my very first 0-60mph - just as advertised!

This SUV likes COLD temps!

Best pass was down a slight hill, the upper time/speed was going slightly up hill the opposite direction.

Re: Evic pic thread

Does anyone think specs are slightly underrated, granted this was on a deserted stretch vs track but this is seriously quick.

Re: Evic pic thread

My problem with the EVIC is that although it appears to be very accurate, some results may be exaggerated by road conditions. If someone is on a slight decline they're going to get some better than average results making it look like the specs are underrated. Just my thoughts but anyway... here's mine:

Re: Evic pic thread

I've done a 0-60 8 or 9 times, and I'm consistently doing 4.8. I did a 4.5 but it was definitely on a downhill, so I didn't count that.

i have realized that there is a window of best performance with the truck. for instance i did a run yesterday the temp was 46 degrees and very humid i ran a 4.8 with little to no gas in tank road was flat and truck was at normal operating temps. this is the same stretch i ran the 4.4 a week or 2 ago. This morning before coming into work, on a full tank of gas, i ran a 4.5 in the opposite direction as last night and opposite direction of my 4.4. I have been running in sport mode, launch from idle, and i paddle shift. transam wrote in a thread the RPM's he shifts at and i have been following that. 1 gear shift at 5200-5300. also i only put shell 93. i have noticed a HUGE difference in gas.
