    funny pretty accurate to what it seemed after i installed my stereo /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
    so i'm guessing that weight is right

    Power at Flywheel (BHP) : 230
    Weight without Driver (KG) : 1750
    Power to Weight Ratio (BHP Per Ton) : 133.54
    0 - 60 (Secs) : 7.68
    0 - 100 (Secs) : 22.88
    60 - 100 (Secs) : 15.20
    Quarter Mile (Secs) : 16.45
    Terminal Speed (MPH) : 84.78
    Drag Strip Quarter Mile (Secs) : 16.05
    Drag Strip Terminal Speed (MPH) : 87.16


    and this is what i hope for after remap with turbos

    Power at Flywheel (BHP) : 400
    Weight without Driver (KG) : 1750
    Power to Weight Ratio (BHP Per Ton) : 232.24
    0 - 60 (Secs) : 4.74
    0 - 100 (Secs) : 11.56
    60 - 100 (Secs) : 6.82
    Quarter Mile (Secs) : 13.34
    Terminal Speed (MPH) : 107.43
    Drag Strip Quarter Mile (Secs) : 12.94
    Drag Strip Terminal Speed (MPH) : 110.80

    like hell it will be, but i'll have fun trying to do it /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif would be nice to break that sub 5 ....

    the 0-60 time seems a bit too quick for me to be honest. i've only just touched 7 when giving it a good go... what do you guys think of the figures? a bit hopeful i reckon!

    Remember quoted weights are dry weights, so the car will be significantly heavier with 5 litres of oil and 50 litres of petrol! My figures are not that far off..especially the 60-100.

    Just what i needed, i always told the old b4st4rd my 996TT would beat his 360 but the old git never takes it out never mind race it.

    Not much in it though, in theory once the fetzki is up and running look at the 60 - 100mph time! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    the torque output however makes those stats another story - 60-100 is much quicker once on the roll.

    Ha ha .............. very funny gents!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Must admit I,m not to sure what to do about the brakes,,,,,,,,,,, They are totally bolloxed. I,m due to change the car either this summer, or maybe next. So don't want to waste lots of money on brakes, just to give it back to the dealer!

    Any ideas? How much are those RS6 Kits Rich??

    Thats why i mention the Torque output, as in ui think it was Golf+ Mag, the had a tuned diesel Mk4 against 1.8T Mk4 and the diesel abliterated the petrol from 60-100 or whatever the figure was, someone must remeber this writeup???

    Actually just found this out:

    30-70mph 3rd gear: 15.4 sec Petrol 1.8T

    30-70mph 3rd gear: 7.5 sec Diesel 1.9PD

    These figures are exact to what was printed in the mag!
    Tell me that torque doesnt count for nothing..

    BTW now doing GB on wooden spoons, lmao

    Yeah great - so if you short shift on a drag strip you'll win in the car with the most bhp at mid revs. And if you use max bhp you'll win in the car with the most BHP (assuming gearing is the same etc).

    Dumbass torque monkey theorists...

    These are the figures for my GSXR1000K3. Unfortunately I had to increase dry weight from 170kg (no rider) to the minimum of 350 (real wet weight inc rider is 301kg in my case).

    Actual figures are a little better - Standing Quarter at 10.3 with a terminal speed of 144mph, 0-100 in 7 secs...

    Power at Flywheel (BHP) : 160
    Weight without Driver (KG) : 350
    Power to Weight Ratio (BHP Per Ton) : 464.48
    0 - 60 (Secs) : 3.31
    0 - 100 (Secs) : 9.08
    60 - 100 (Secs) : 5.76
    Quarter Mile (Secs) : 11.75
    Terminal Speed (MPH) : 113.79
    Drag Strip Quarter Mile (Secs) : 11.65
    Drag Strip Terminal Speed (MPH) : 115.20

    Remember quoted weights are dry weights, so the car will be significantly heavier with 5 litres of oil and 50 litres of petrol!

    I weighed mine on the weighbridge at the tip last time I was there and it came out at 1250kg with me in it and about 5l of petrol left in the tank. I weigh about 70kg so that makes 1180kg wet-ish.

    One of my mates weighed his 225 TT on the same weighbridge and it came out at 1550kg!!

    Anyway...

    Power at Flywheel (BHP) : 198
    Weight without Driver (KG) : 1180
    Power to Weight Ratio (BHP Per Ton) : 170.49
    0 - 60 (Secs) : 6.43
    0 - 100 (Secs) : 16.42
    60 - 100 (Secs) : 9.99
    Quarter Mile (Secs) : 14.84
    Terminal Speed (MPH) : 95.04
    Drag Strip Quarter Mile (Secs) : 14.64
    Drag Strip Terminal Speed (MPH) : 96.71

    Another thing this doesn't take into account is gear ratios, and whether you can get to 60 in second. I presume the calculator is assuming zero time for shifts!

    It also doesn't take into account the fact I'm sh!t at standing starts....
