Check <A HREF="http://www.gizmag.co.uk/go/5805/" TARGET="_blank">http://www.gizmag.co.uk/go/5805/</A> out. Interesting to know how the R would fare in this. Anyone know 0-100-0 times for it?

Re: 0-100-0 times (acg69)

according to cartest2000 for the 0-100mph times, and using kinematics to interpolate the 100-0mph time, you are looking at 16.9 seconds for the R.<p>go ahead...say it...im a geek <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

I will say that the "R" forum has a lot of guys that have a lot of technical knowlege and are mathematical wizards, I know that some of you guys are astronauts. lol

If your calculations are correct (and who am I to say they are not:) ) this would put the R between the Lotus Exige @ 16.60 and the Nissan 350Z @ 18.80. Not bad company at all, I think.

It comes out to 18.05 seconds....Still nothing to sneeze at.

Re: 0-100-0 times (lowbumpeR)

Phuz<br>Wouldn't you have to assume that accerelation to and from 100 mph was constant? That wouldn't take into consideration shifts or brake heat. <br>It's a great start, though I would caution calling out a Z owner.

As per my post ABOVE, I used cartest2000 to simulate a 0-100mph run, which takes into consideration more than you think <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>The deceleration is a lot more linear and therefore, you can use interpolation.<p>Its more than a great start. Those #s are pretty accurate. Why would you suspect an R to have a higher time than a Z? We have a faster 1/4 mile time, and more stopping power. I'm pretty sure these two factors have some weight with 0-100-0 times <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Physics don't lie.
