I have a stock 2006 silver automatic S60R that I am currently buying from my dad. I was just wondering what kind of times people were getting out of these. I went to the track this past weekend and was pleasantly suprised with a 14.1 @ 101. This was on ~85 degree day in Michigan so it was humid too! (I saw a post on here before about track times and someone posted a time without a slip and people didnt believe him, I have the slip but its at my house and I'm at university for summer classes so I can put it up later but not now thanks!) I was expecting it to be a little slower being so hot and an automatic. I think it may go high 13s on a cool day! Wondering what you guys thought the car responded best to as far as simple upgrades (ie. custom tune etc.)<br>Thanks,<br>Matt

That is pretty average.<br>There were a couple of people to pull a 13.6 / 13.7 with really good launches.

The guy we didnt believe was talking about a 12.4 run, and didn't seem to have any knowledge about the car let alone any proof of this.<p>14.1 aint bad for an auto. I think 13.6 was the best confirmed stock time. Some must have broken into the 12's with mods.<p>Unfortunately the thread with the official times is locked because of the 12.4 claim and the ensuing madness. Needs, we need ya.

Re: stock 1/4 mile times (jclough)

thanks for all the responses I realize that it wasnt blazing fast I was just surprised it being an auot.....<br> <br>imageomega,<br>ya I realized that my time wasnt unbelievable I just didnt want it to get out of hand like the other thread so it seemed safer to say that lol......<p><br>jclough,<br>I tried everything lol.....I started off with advanced mode on the suspension which as you all know puts the transmission in sport, I tried this with both manual shifting and automatic the times only varied by about a tenth surprisingly the best time was in full auto. I also tried comfort for a bit more weight transfer (not that it really needed it I was trying anything I could think of, It did run a 14.2 at 100.? in comfort. For the whole day with trying all the possible combinations the slowest the car went was a 14.3 @ 99 (That was running back to back for 3 runs with no cooldown).
