I dunno how accurate I am when I time myself, but I have seen an improvement in the numbers I get as I've modified my 94 SSE over the months. I've seen my average drop from 8.6, to 8.3, and last time I checked it was 7.9. But the whole thing about a rolling start is very true with Bonnie for some reason. Floor that sucker when rolling up to a red light turning green and ZOOM, your off.

Yup. Getting our big 3500 pound asses moving off the line is totally different than doing it from 5mph....those rolling starts pin you to the seat!
