If you launch good and keep traction, it'* the SSEi. just don't floor it right away, you need to keep the wheels right at the brake loose zone. In my car if I floor it, I go 0-60 in 5.3 seconds, if I feather the throttle I go 0-60 in 5.0 seconds. It'* all about driving.

thats a fast 0-60! so it would be better to say give about half throttle till the tach reaches say 4,000 rpm.

Every car and track will react different. You need to listen to your tires when you launch. Don't go threw the water box, just drive around it, then give your tires a little spin to scrub them clean.

you'd blow the 96 Maxima away hands down.

I've beat one already.

this bonneville is prolly the fastest car i've driven, heck thats pretty much all i've driven besides the maxima, and a buick riviera (ln3) thats also my dads... my first was an 89 le, then from there i was hooked. ever since that le i wanted to get an ssei. now i have my two babies 91 sse and my 2000 ssei, what would u recommend for a new set of shoes, i was thinkin of getting the GY F1s but there pretty expensive and i dont really want to spend that much if there'* a cheaper tire that can give me some good traction, without sacrificing to much of the ride. size? i think stock is 235-55-17
