Guess what I ran 1/4mile in on MS6?

Well I took my dad's car to the track when I got back home the other day from college. Guess the 1/4mile and 0-60 time. THe car is stock except for a Mazda CAI and 93 Power Octane at one of the gas stations.

I really dont understand why they quote the MS6 right around 6 seconds. Half of you will probably call bull shit.

4.89 0-60
13.4x 1/4 mile

The 0-60 was recorded by Dashhawk, and dashhawk was only like .1 faster on 1/4 mile time so It is pretty accurate. When you launch that thing right it takes off like a son of a bitch. There was no hesitation just a little chirp of the tires and had an awsome shift into 2nd. Should have saw the Gt's face next to me :-) I will record a dashhawk run on a closed road and see if I can upload it up to here. 4.89 is a .3 seconds faster then my previous fastest 0-60. That was the best launch of my life :-)

Sid you were pretty close. There have been stock MS6 claiming to run 13.3's but they must be good as hell. Because I thought that was the best shifting and launch I have ever done. You know whats funny my dad can only get 5.9 0-60 :-) I told him to hand the car over to a real driver :-P

I know I was just showing how close the Dashhawk was to the actual time slip. It was less than .1. I didnt notice a 0-60 on the time slip, of course it was very faded.

* I just check I have a 60foot time but no 0-60. I was telling the Dashhawk time for 0-60 just because I was excited I got it that low.
