I think I can chime in here and set this strait, No way could my 96 keep up with the 99 whom ever did the driving for that must have just sat at the tree and spun the wheels for awhile there is so much torque in the SSEi that you have to learn to lanch it properly just flooring it is not going to get you the best time.

my bet is they put the SSEi #'* down for the SSE and the SE/SSE #'* for the SSEi. 8.3 is about what I'd assumed my SSE would have done stock after calculating my 1/4 time and figuring that in my modded state I am running around a 7.5-7.7 second 0-60. Not real impressive, but it'* an improvement.
