Re: Acceleration

Hey guys,<p>Might be kinda off topic posting this in a S60 forum as we have a XC. But.. It should be kinda universal to users with a tiptronic gearshift avaliable for their Volvo. <p>Me and my dad have been testing acceleration times these few days. We clocked a time of around 14 seconds on the 0-100km sprint using the tiptronic gearshift. I figure that is pretty darn slow for a 2.4T (XC70). We would usually do around 5500rpm before switching up (seems that the tiptronic system stays for another 500+rpm before actually ****fing up). <p>After reading afew posts.. it seems that we should actually shift from 1st to 2nd at 4500+rpm? Could somebody sorta do a chart to which RPMs we should shift at on the different gears? <p>It states the XC is capable of 9 seconds using the tiptronic system which I find kinda hard for our tropical climate. Doing say high 9s low 10s would make me and my dad very happy people. <p>Btw, we do this on a track. AND, we do use the seatbellts.<p>PS: Its an 01' V70XC with around 3000km.<p>Kian

OK, I give it a try.<p>The 2.4 LPT turbo runs out of breath after 4500 rpm so you could try and shift near 4500-5000 RPM to gain a little momentum.<br>Maybe the turbo is not working properly, you could ask the dealer to check the factory wastegate setting and measure the boost level.
