I havn't timed it but my moms Rav4 feels about as quick to 60 as the SDL. But the Rav doesn't go above 80. So in a 60-100 race the SDL would take it by a mile.

"How much difference does the gearing make in this? I can't imagine it would be insignificant, but I don't know how much leeway you would have. If our cars are slow on the takeoff , but have a hhigher top end speed, then they are certainly geared differently than cars whose design goal was faster 0-60 times.

Was it the 2.5 Liter or the 3.5 liter. I dont think it could have been the 3.5 Liter. 0-60 in 6 flat is what the 3.5 is capable of doing, my dad had one and lets just say it was a pretty fun car to drive. a 4 door sedan with the same engine as the 350z.

They are a lot bigger when you are standing on the ground facing them instead of looking down from a tree stand.

All the difference in the world. Thats why MB's will usualy take cars at highway passing speeds that would leave them in the dust in a drag race. MB's are geared to run 100-120 on the autobahn, so pretty high. Take an American car where its not going to see north of 70 often and they gear them much lower.

That's pretty clever; it just so happens my seat covers are made of e-wok.
