0-60 times?

I thought I would start a list of 0-60s for our cars. Some order would be nice, ie:
Year:
Auto/Manual:
Sedan/Coupe:
Tires(psi):
DA: (found using http://www.dragtimes.com/da-density-...calculator.php )
Mods:
Gas:
Weight: (how many people in the car, carrying around bricks in the trunk?)
Some proof: (picture of a gt1/vbox/video)

Here, I'll go first..

Year: 2005
Auto/Manual: Manual
Sedan/Coupe: Coupe
Tires: Bridgestone Potenza Grid G019 (30psi)
DA: -200ft
Mods: AEM V2, filled side engine mounts
Gas: 93 Sunoco
Weight: My friend & I plus ~20lbs of luggage=390lbs
Proof: Didn't get it on video, but here is a snapshot of the GT1 (looking to buy a Vbox). This was done in Eastern Ohio on a FLAT road. The elevation was around 200 ft and it was around 45F out.

2nd supposedly goes to 62 according to our gauges but redlining 2nd on my gps shows 60 even. On this run I did the full 8th but didn't get a screen shot of the time (low 9s). This really has taught me how much the DA and 60 ft effect your run. I normally live in 900-1000ft elevation and the best I could manage was a 5.62 solo in the car (did it 4 times to confirm). I may try to get a 0-100 on video

6.3 seconds is a very respectable time for an auto sedan! What's your elevation and what temp was it? It can make a huge difference in traction + intake pressure. Low altitude around 55-60F seems optimal. The intake alone shaved off 0.3 seconds or so by 60 for me. I'm currently running on 87 BP. I will do some 0-100s when the tank is low then fill up with a few gallons on 93 sunoco and pull the battery for a bit. After a couple more runs (In the same location + similar conditions) I hope I can finally quantify the effects of 93 vs 87. I really need to get a stage 3 clutch and some High performace summer tired, these all seasons seem limited to a 2.25 60ft. I'm sure low 5s are possible with nice rubber, a perfect launch+ conditions with just an intake and maybe some weight reduction. Any one else have numbers?

Wow! Your way ahead of me in terms of mods and weight reduction! Passenger seat and rear weigh Almost 100 lbs!!?? That would really help in the 8th! Is yours an exl? If it is did you have to do anything special do the airbag didnt do something crazy? I've just heard horror stories...

Btw, <3 your car, especially the rims! Maybe buy a set of k1s or rpf1s to throw on there for track/ auto x days

Yes, I know. Honestly those numbers suprised me a bit too ( I sometimes question the accuracy of that thing) I took it to the track once to compare numbers and it seemed to vary +\- 0.1 seconds at the extremes. The little thing uses accelerometers to measure acceleration then integrates it over time to find speed. Car and driver actually helped test it but it's not a true vbox. I want to buy one but it's hard to find one cheap/ used so I can justify spending 300-500$ instead of buying pcd or a jpipe. I'll try to get a run on video and overlay a frame counter. The speedometer lag/error should be negligible at 0 and 60 mph.

Still want to take my seats out, preferably knowing that they won't explode in the process.

Hello All, not much of a frequent poster here @ V6P, but I thought I'd throw in my .02. EthanEMC505 is a friend of mine, I was the "passenger" when he was making his passes. I can tell you after comparing numbers between the "box" and track time slips, the biggest gap I've ever seen was .15 on the 1/4 E.T. (once ever) usually it's within .01-.03 of the track, so it's dead reliable. I can attest, Ethan can drive the **** out of his Accord too. Watching Him rip through the gears is borderline scary how quick He is. Hope this helps negate any future "flaming" or whatnot.

Sorry if this has been asked but what kind of tires are you running to get that time? That is very difficult to believe to be honest with you that's pretty much WRX territory if I am correct and I know we cannot hole shot them.

thanks for the generous compliment man. yeah so i really didn't do anything special when removing my front two seats. although i have heard horror stories also about the airbags. i just took out my battery, then removed the seats and undid the connectors. after i removed the seat(s) i then put my battery back in. no problems so far bud. yeah i need lightweight wheels. what are the lightest rims/wheel setup out there anyone know?

Lightest wheels I could find were Kosei K1TS, and that is what I bought. But I got 17x7 since I don't plan on having much power and I have a 4 cyl. I think they are on average 1 lb lighter than RPF1s size for size.

I think the most significant weight savings can be had in the tires because in 17" the weights range from about 21 to 26 pounds for max/ultra summer tires.

Crappy all season grid 019s, remember this is on the street not the track. I'll take a video sometime this coming week. This weather in Ohio isn't good for traction :/

By all means! It would be great to compare. I tried to make a video last night but 1st gear traction (and 2nd) were a joke. I finally got going in 3rd then around 4k It just let go Hate this Ohio Weather

C'mon people! Post up some videos! This is V6PERFORMANCE right?

I tested it vs the track and it's never once been even 0.2 off. Even a 5.7 0-60 on all seasons with two people in the car is impressive. I understand they aren't perfectly accurate that's why I'm looking to buy a Vbox performance box (a highly respected piece of gps based testing equipment).

true chemik most of these things aren't accurate however 5.5 seconds in a 6 speed accord isn't UNOBTAINABLE. im pretty sure the 6 speed 7th gen does usually 6.0 or 5.9 average in the 0-60. so with manual 5.5 means the driver must have been very good!!! i know another 7th gen member has done 5.7 0-60 previously, i just don't remember who? my .02 cents

This makes me wonder what the 0-60s for a supercharged/larger J swapped/bored accords are. With front wheel drive our cars can only do so well off the line on street tires.

Yea that's my point. You have crappy tires and no traction and you're cutting 5.5s...I highly doubt the accuracy of that thing. I need to see you at the track cutting 2.2s to believe that honestly. Sorry I don't mean to be a spoil-sport but

A 0-60 of 5.5 sec. is not possible for this vehicle.

End of story.

Anything can be possible. If your going downhill then it will definately help. lol. I say a GREAT driver with all bolt ons should be in that range (6mt). Only downfall is that 1st gear is usually worthless on the street so you really need track conditions to get the best times.

5.5 is definitely attainable in this car. I doubt it with a passenger and luggage (only 20lbs you said, your friend is 370lbs???) Also, to cut a 5.5 0-60 I'd think you'd need 60' better than 2.2. That's what I did on my 14.0 run with CAI/Jpipe and that's hardly a good 60'.

I'll try to get a couple good 0-60s in my car today. My clutch sucks so I can't shift as fast as I'd like, but it's whatever.

2.2 isn't horrible for FWD. If you are talking < 2.0 then you are encroaching on AWD territory.

It's still not great. 2.0 is really good for FWD and can happen for sure on street tires. With DRs, 1.8/1.9s are attainable, sometimes with street tires and the right setup.

Okay, if 2.0 is really good then what you said is understandable. I wasn't sure if your were saying that 2.2 was so bad that sub 2.0 was where it should be. Gotcha.

60' is EVERYTHING in drag racing. Honestly a 1.8 60' and a misshift would be just as fast if not faster than a 2.2 60' and PERFECT shifting.
