Those numbers are somewhat optimistic, no offense intended I assure you. I got a gTech to say I've gone 0-60 in 5.03 secs (in my 500E), and there's simply no way my 4,000lb relatively stock car can pull that's a 5.8-6.0 sec. car. I also pulled a 13.38 1/4, but even under the best conditions out in the real world the best I've done is 13.8 with a trap speed just over 100. How a car like yours with horribly tall gearing can come so close to 500E numbers surprises me. Now, pop proper gears in there and it's a race!

I suggest you try a weigh station and weigh you and your car; that done, you can more accurately dial in your gTech. But don't hold it as absolutely correct

Enjoy your car!
