Lets throw down. 0 to 60!

Get a stopwatch, find a flat stretch of freeway, stop on the sholder and let er rip. First write down your prediction then your actual time. Cars, bikes anything.


I'll do my ram, pacifica and honda cb650.

Too inacurate.

Go to a drag strip and get a proper timing slip to avoid bullsh*t claims appearing (not meaning you)

But....don't tell the environmentalists

Re: Lets throw down. 0 to 60!

no need to find a drag strip, or break a law. Speed limit on the freeway is 65. Start on the shoulder from a stop. People do that all the time. Do it a few times and take the average.

Eazy peazy boss. Get er done.

Re: Lets throw down. 0 to 60!

Why does this sound like a pissing contest? That whole macho mines bigger than yours is thing? I mean seriously guys...

I have a nice little red Honda Accord Coupe, V6 6 speed with about 240 hp. I can get from 0 - 60 in plenty of time to get where I'm going and out of people's way. On top of that it is cute and I look cute driving it.

So yeah... someone is always going to have a faster car that you unless someone is going to let you take out a Formula 1 car or perhaps one of those sound barrier breaking vehicles... NASA has a vehicle that can get you into outer space (as do various other countries and commerical companies). Just roll the window down and enjoy the ride man.

Not a pissing contest. Just good clean fun. No need to take it seriously. I don't mind having the slowest car, my Pacifica.

58 seconds on the 114 Bus, and i was yelling at the driver to punch it, it would have been about 25 seconds but some old geezer had to get off. I was then asked to get off at the next stop. i will try again tomorrow.

It's a crappy car shot because it was an attempt at a guitar pic... actually its a crappy guitar pic too... but the 0-60 is a lot quicker than the 60-0
