    Talking My S3 0-60 vid

    Hey went out last night did a couple of vids of my 0-60s on my phone with a mate.(bless him)
    i timed it with stopwatch and it came to 5.5secs give or take 0.1 from my lazy thumb!
    Was on wet road so launch wasn't brilliant! but i'm well chuffed!
    oh and i played with an elise on the A1 and won.
    Heres the Link
    YOU TUBE I KNOW BUT LET ME OFF!

    excuse the laughter i think it actually hurt him!

    Didnt think S3's were that quick off the line, my 260bhp mr2 is about 5.5 secs 0-60 and its 2 wheel drive and will do it in second.

    it was a totally flat road, and if you turn the ESP off you get a much better take off!

    They're not. The best any of us managed with official timing at Inters last year was 6.12s.

    Last year the S3 was just chipped (plus a few extras). In all honesty you neeed a lot more than a remap to take that much time of the 0-60 in these things.

    No way is that 5.5 secs, sorry.

    I did the same thing last year ... same power as you, dry road. Best run I got appears to be 6.0 seconds, but probably a fraction more? Mine was slightly more accurate in that I edited the video frame by frame - the video starts as soon as the needle moves and finishes as it hits 60mph.

    Here's my vid:

    0-60 is a terrible measure of the S3s power as you have to change gear twice to get there.

    Sat navs are not accurate for this type of measure. Their co-ordinates measurement can be out by 20-50 feet. So over a short distance this makes speed calculations (finish coordinates-start coordinates, divided by time) extremely unreliable.

    i see what your saying monkey trousers, but what Si ment, is he has checked his speedo speed against his GPS, and found that a genuine 60mph is 64 on his speedo, so when timming a 0-60 run he times from 0-64mph on his speedo.

    that said, the 5.5seconds isnt quite right, i make it just over 6 from that vid timming from 0-64 displayed on the speedo

    OK - fair do's.

    I don't mean don't p*ss on his fireworks, it's just that 0-60 times are just "playground talk". Reminds me of comparing cars in Top Trumps! One statistic does not a car make.
