    Anyone ever heard of this? It seem these times are used in Europe to tell Dyno HP of a engine. They have a typical stock Coyote Mustang at 5 seconds flat. Put that figure through a calculator and that is 450 HP and 12.7 1/4 miles times. It also gives another figure on 1/4 mile time. It's drive it like you hate it figure with sticky tires at 12.1 seconds.

    60-130 much more popular here, good for bakery racing... I did a pull once in the Shelby 6.0

    There is a flat stretch along I-81 that is posted 75 with average slow lane traffic at 85 and if your in the fast lane, count on a Chevy Cruze tailgating you at 90. So a quick 60 to 100 test is not a big deal.

    What’s the formula for this? Curious to try it out myself.

    This is on the internet under 60 to 100 times. It give a list of cars and times plus a calculator. A Corvette Z06 at 4.7 seconds and so on. The biggest issue in I-81 is getting down to 60 without someone honking their horn.

    And I assume axle and transmission gearing as well. I can't see 60 - 100 in 5.0 being possible starting from 60 in a 1.00:1 transmission gear and typical street axle gearing. You'd be under 3000 rpm.

    60 - 100 and stk's 60 - 130 sound like much more useful metrics for road course track rats than the usual 0 - 60, 60-ft, and 1/8 and 1/4 ETs. They should be decent indicators of how well any given car can get off a medium-slow corner (and how easy or hard it might be to pull off a pass there).

    There is a shift point someplace in there. A 60 to 100 in third has no shift point. Although you might hit the rev limiter at around 99.

    Spec like this has been given for sportbikes for years. It is called "top gear roll on" time, 60-80mph.

    I have a 60-100 time in 4th gear, 4.6 GT, 3.73, CAI Bamatune
    8.9 s (60-80 4.4 s)

    But, these times are not really comparable, because you need perfect flat street and no strong winds condition. I don't know if my time is fast or slow, I use it to compare modifications I did.
