Hi xlr,xlr said:So my question is this - ssuming 5.7 seconds - is it worth spending an extra $25,000 on a V when you pick up MAYBE one full second at most (probably less)?
No mswaim,mswaim said:I respect your thoughts Hans, however there is no possible way the XLR-V in stock trim will make the 0-60 run in 4.3 - 4.5 seconds. I think 4.7 to 4.9 is a better guess considering its weight to horsepower/torque.
In fact, when you consider your own info that shows an extreme spread for the STS-V (4-6 to 5.1) giving the XLR-V a 4.3 to 4.5 is just unrealistic.
Keep in mind when measuring 0-60 times that a variance of a 1/2 second is a big variance, that's why the measure in 10ths of a second. :cheers
holding a gear may be counter-productive.....but it sure sounds great with my Borla exhaust!mswaim said:Since holding it in gear past a certain rpm is counter-productive, I would think it would be best to let it shift on its own with the traction control turned off. That's the way I measured mine.
OK I see what you're doing now....."Honey, you can't drive my car because you confuse it":glolmswaim said:I agree with the car adapting to both drivers, but let's face it - there's no need to overwhelm my wife with that knowledge! I prefer the two-car principle, you drive both, she drives hers or at least that sounds good in theory.:yesnod :yesnod
