What does the slip tell you your 60' and quarter are? What was your trap speed?

Whats trap speed? Here Ill just copy all the times down. I wish I had a copier but you probably couldnt even see the damn numbers.

1.9
3.7
8.7
82mph
11.2
13.4
103mph

I want to know who the hell were driving the MS6 in the magazins that quote it at a 6 second 0-60? Honestly, I dont have to much experience with a stick.4.8 could be a fluke but I can usually get anwhere from 5.2-5.5.

I wonder what a focus could do with AWD. A focus with AWD will probably weigh what 3,000/put same engine as the Speed 3 and 6 and bam you have a low 13sec car for probably less than 25grand (guess ford thinks this wont sell?).

Orange have you been to track in your SVT or are you still having problems? BTW I love your car! Im still trying to figure out where the hell you live so I can give that car a real driver ;-P

Dashhawk gets confused by tire spin and some other variables. Basically it counts the revolutions of your wheels and calculates from there.

If I'm reading that right, and the 1/8th came in 8.7 @ 82mph, looking at 0-82 in 8.7 probably means the 0-60 was actually in the mid to high 5s, otherwise you'd have felt a huge flat spot in acceleration. Think about it, you go to 60 in 4.8~, then it takes almost 4 seconds to go from 60 to 82? I don't think so. That's if I'm reading your numbers right, who knows.

But yeah, 13.4 in the 1/4 is a great time, I'm sure it was a lot of fun.

i call bullshit

3600lb car 270'ish horsepower

stock is mid to low 14second car. a CAI isnt going to give you a half a second much less a full second off your 1/4 mile time.

post up a video, your timeslip, or ban.

There are plenty Stock i mean completly stock MS6 that can go faster then I posted. Just with a intake and exhaust the MS6 is over 300hp. I think it has about 15hp more than the MS6. The only reason the MS6 is quick is because of the awd drive system. Out outlaunched the shit out of the mustang like he wasnt even moving.

Arkaign I also had a bad shift into 3rd so that could have slowed me down to the 1/8. Guys I tried taking a picture of the slip and I was going to post it but you cant even read the damn numbers. And the MS6 is by far no mid 14's. Go read the boards they have guys doing mid to high 13's no problem in a stock MS6. I dont understand why tire spin would affect my 0-60. I sure as hell know I wasnt spinning at 60. Because the tires just chirped and I was off the line like a bat out of hell.

Stock 13.8 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QGHqCMvo_0
Rear Engine Mount Otherwise stock 13.6: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1wgdBR5eL0
BOV, Race Pipe, CAI 13.3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8DCohC1s58

Still think im bullshitting. But then again not many people know they have AWD. But then again thats where they get all their weight from. The car doesnt feel heavy either, its not as agile as the focus though.

If you look at the last video you can see the difference a good driver makes. Thats what my launched look compared to the Stock Gt Mustang that was next to me.

I promise Im not bull shitting I have no reason to. Its not my car not like im making it faster than it is. I was just shocked at the time it posted by a relativly new driver. I will admit I probably cant recreate that launch I did it was just luck. Trust me I debadge the MazdaSpeed 6, so not many people know what you are driving across town. Lets just say its one of the funnest sleepers to be cruising around in. I love the looks of people in the passenger car when they hear the DV, I think its a DV. I tried getting my dad to put a BOV but he isnt to big into it.

Does anybody know how to properly launch AWD. I reved to 5k drop the clutch and as soon as I droped it I put the gas pedal to the ground. Then just shifted at 7k.
