Default My first 0-60 vid Update: NEW VID!

Hey I finally did my first 0-60 vid, let me know what you think

Warning, towards the end , it gets really shaky, I was hitting bumps

UPDATE: I made a new vid today, it was wheelspin-free but I had a full tank again and it was kinda warm outside but i still think it'* pretty good, I'm sure I could get the times lower...

Looks to be about 8.5, 8 without the wheelspin. Not bad.

Cool, all that gas you were towing around probably helped slow that run down some.

Hmm, I should make another clip when the gas'* almost gone, I'm curious now how it'll do without about 12 gallons in it.

I would guess you could feel a difference with under a 1/4 tank, I know in my Bonne it always feels a tad snappier when it'* about a 1/4 tank or less.

yeah, untill you go through a turn too fast and the gas misses the pickup and the motor dies for a second and you lose power everything and you go nuts when you suddunly the brake pedal doesn't go down and the wheel just got harder....then it all comes back

oh, fuel, nice clip, aside from the bumps

That'* really good for an N/A. I timed my SSEi before I gave her a tune up, and I got around where you are. I usually keep my tank at around 1/2 or more, but, to me, performance doesn't seem to suffer that much. When you think about it, it'* like carrying an infant in your passenger seat, which is, unless you bracket race, not that much.

Would be better if I had 1.8 rockers and a INTENSE PCM, I bet it would go a bit quicker
