We gotta compare stock SSEi vs stock V8 Jag, its only fair game...once mods come into place, then the comparo is no longer fair.

That being said, what is 8-Ball running from naught to 60 these days ?!

Never really timed it but 12.5 in the 1/4 is about 3.8 0-60. I would say my car is probably low to mid 4'*.

Take the AutoTap out and time it Todd

If that estimation is correct that means you are now faster then the new Mercedes SLR, that new wild looking SC'd V8
