According to IHRA and NHRA regulations, 13.99 and faster requires a helmet.

Instead of making a new thread I'll revive this one.

I as well have an 00 ZX3. Just recently purchased an OBDLink MX Bluetooth adapter and paired it with the Torque app for Android. It offers everything your ECU calculates. (Which is pretty sweet.)

It also does 0-60 and 1/4 times.

Decided to take my baby for a couple rips down the country road by my house.

Here's 2 of my runs.



Last nights run :


By no means is this 100% accurate results. Especially the tq and HP numbers. But, a rough estimate at least.

Not too impressed though.. Best time of
0-60mph : 10.0s
1/4 mile: 17.5s @ 130kmh

Cars fully stock. 343,000kms, full tank of gas, lots of crap in the truck (golf clubs and shiz) and 40% remaining winters.


I think with the trunk crap removed, running on empty, and some proper sticky summers, I could break into the 9s and 16s. What do you guys think?

Launched at 3200, 1-2 @ 6500, 2-3 @ 6000. 3-4 @ 6000.

Any tips or hints would be appreciated.

Car and driver states:
0-60: 8.9s
1/4 mile: 16.5s

Got some work ahead of me. Hehe.

TIA.

I think for it being stock and 14 years old that time is about right. What motor do you have?

I have the 2.0L zetec DOHC. I know there is power loss over the years, but a whole second slower seems far fetched to me.

For what it's worth. 342000kms and it can still survive my abuse is pretty damn good. Would like to see closer to stock numbers however, just for bragging rights. Lol.

I'll bet if you take it to an actual track you'll be in the 16s.

Probably about right, given the traction issues you'll have on the street.

High 16 at the track is my guess.

Did another little run today after fireworks.

0-60: 9.3s
1/4: 17.3s

Getting there. Seemed to have improved the launch.
1-2: 6500 2-3: 5800 3-4: 5800

Gonna try letting third run out the 1/4. Extra shift might be added couple tenths.
