Re: How fast is the 2014?

Yea, same patch of asphalt, air temp is about 8 degrees warmer today. Just really strange to have that much difference IMO...

I have trouble believing that the air temperature would make a half second difference on a 0-60. If it was a 60 degree day vs a 100 degree day, ok. But not 61 vs 69... Who knows, I know I don't have insight into their programming

Re: How fast is the 2014?

I just used Launch Control for the first time. Still haven't found a long enough empty flat strip to do a 1/4, but it went 0-60 in 4.3.

Re: How fast is the 2014?

I passed the magic 500 miles / 800 km point today (FINALLY!)

I took it out and tried a few runs. Sadly, we don't have the app in Canada that gives us the fancy time slips.. but the smaller evic one in the dash does record. I did three 0-60 runs.

First time I did one, I practically crapped myself. I wasn't sure it was even working.. when you hit the launch button, then hit the brake and then the gas, it revs to around 2500 and then seems to be done and you think... it's not loud, it's not reved high.. wtf.

You release the brake and VROOM your ass is stapled to the back of the seat. I had to breathe to stop my balls from lodging themselves in my throat. it scared the shit out of me at first! haha

first run 5.0, second run, 4.9, third run, 5.1 - all different streets though.

Also noteworthy - I had a full tank of gas

I'm in Alberta, which means well above sea level (3438 feet above sea level) but I think I can better that 4.9.

Still - wow.

If you're thinking about buying one of these. DO EEEEEET!

I didn't do any other tests yet.

You'd be surprised what the weather can do to a NA engine. It's not just temperature, but density altitude.

It's probably a bit of heat soak? Check you engine temp next time you do a run. You will notice performs better just a few minutes after warming the engine.

Re: How fast is the 2014?

Possibly...but I had been driving for quite sometime on both occasions with air temps being 8* apart.

The first day I had run my buddies 5.0 several times in a row before the 12.8 run as well, so it isn't like she was sitting there cooling off. I can also run over an over again and I will get 4.5 or 4.6 every single time, whether it is once or 5 times in a row.

The launch was definitely different the other day. Maybe the temp that we were at (61) provided parameters that changes the timing/makes it more aggressive? Who knows, but I doubt we'll get another cool snap until fall...

Believe whatever you want...I really don't care. But, it was on perfectly level ground.

Re: How fast is the 2014?

I don't think anyone will be happy unless I produce a video of a run with a track slip and a notarized form from Ralph himself...

Doesn't matter as I would be shocked if we get another cool snap where I'd have a chance to recreate it - until fall that is.
